New York City is called “Big Apple.” Everything you can expect it to be: blazing lights, stellar museums, urban parks, grand bridges, buzzy restaurants, and even buzzier nightclubs – all framed by the world’s most iconic skyline.
The Empire State Building
Without this fantastic building, would all those famous cinematic love scenes be as notable? Probably not. Hop on one of the speedy elevators to the top of this Art Deco beauty for stunning 360-degree views – on a clear day; you can see five states those are the neighbors of this city.
Spend a day wandering this gigantic park, with its sloping lawns, Frisbee games, fragrant gardens, elm-shaded Mall, and beloved Strawberry Fields.
If you visit one museum in this fantastic New York City, make it this one. The epic Met traces more than 5,000 years of art history, from the Egyptian Temple of Dendur to the Astor Chinese Garden Court to paintings by Van Gogh, Manet, Monet, Picasso, Degas, Warhol, and much more.
The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the most photographed structures in New York – and the best way to do so is by crossing it on foot. For the exceptional effect, walk it from the Manhattan side, resist turning around until the midway point. After that, take a look – the skyline glitters in the distance, framed by the bridge’s signature cables.
