NEW YORK CITY ATTRACTIONS

Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC

Statue of Liberty, NYC
New York Harbor, New York, NY 10004 · 212-269-5755
A one-loop boat trip takes visitors to Liberty Island and then Ellis Island for visits to one or both sites. The Statue of Liberty, a gift from the people of France, is a must-see for anyone visiting the Big Apple! But seeing it with ease from, say, the Staten Island Ferry, may be sufficient. Waits of two to four hours, much of it in sun and heat, are common in summer.

Times Square, NYC

Brooklyn Bridge, NYC
SOUTH STREET SEAPORT-BROOKLYN
Spanning from the South Street Seaport to Brooklyn Heights, the famous Brooklyn Bridge has ushered New Yorkers across the East River since 1883. A must for any visitor to the Big Apple is to take the 30-plus minute, 3,455-foot walk across the bridge. The view you get of Manhattan is incredible, and it's easy to understand why decades of poets and painters have been fascinated by it. The great Walt Whitman even described the view from the bridge as the "most effective medicine my soul has yet partaken." TRAIN: A, C to High St; N, R to City Hall

Chrysler Building, MIDTOWN
405 Lexington Ave, between 42nd and 43rd Sts, New York, NY 10174 · 212-682-3070
MIDTOWN. This art deco masterpiece briefly held the title of world’s tallest building for some few months before the completion of the Empire State Building in 1931. It was originally built for the automotive icon’s corporate offices, and today it still contains decorative pieces in automotive fashion, including eagle heads and hood ornament wings. Except for the glorious shiny steel needle crowning the structure, some would characterize the exterior of the building as simple. Yet, one step inside the lobby assures you a wonderful treat. Beautiful marble work, elevator doors displaying rare wood marquetry and chrome stair banisters make this 77-story, 1,048-foot building a beauty all its own. A mixture of city history and the building’s magnificence keep this a beloved treasure.

Empire State Building, NYC
350 Fifth Ave, at 34th St, New York, NY 10118 · 212-736-3100
One of the world’s most famous skyscrapers is easily recognized by its strong, slender ascent into the NY sky. The building opened in 1931 at a cost of $41 million after about a year of construction, making it the fastest development of any major skyscraper (4.5 stories per week). At 1,450 feet and currently the seventh tallest building in the world, this landmark soars more than a quarter mile into the Manhattan atmosphere. Observation decks are on the 86th and 102nd floors. The lower deck is probably the better spot for the best views. On clear days, there can be an amazing 80-mile visibility. The upper deck is good too, just smaller and glassed in. Mornings are less crowded, yet the views at night can be magical. You can bank, shop, send a postcard or have a cup of coffee – all within the building. Also available is a virtual trip around the city on the New York Skyride, an exciting thrill-ride simulated helicopter experience. In the lobby, special concerts and art exhibits are offered at various times throughout the year. If you are observing the Empire from another building, you may notice on occasion that the top 30 stories are illuminated by colored lights. Since 1976, varying color combinations have served as a New York City-style Empire celebration of different holidays.

Central Park, NYC

St. Patrick's Cathedral, NYC
460 Madison Ave, between Fifth and Madison Aves, New York, NY  · 212-753-2261
MIDTOWN. Serving as New York's seat of the archbishop, this gothic-style building has distinct American features while maintaining a European feel in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. New York architect James Renwick, also known for designing "The Castle" (the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC), completed work on the church in 1879. Renwick also designed the New York Public Library and the former façade of the New York Stock Exchange. The largest church in New York, St. Patrick's seats over 2,000.

Radio City Music Hall, NYC
1260 6th Ave, at 50th St, New York, NY 10020-1797 · 212-307-1000
MIDTOWN. Host to some of the top performers of all time, Radio City Music Hall was built in 1932 with the slogan, "The Showplace of the Nation." Radio City was the brainchild of theatrical impresario "Roxy" Rothafel. Saved from demolition in the 1970s, the building was given landmark status in 1978. Walking tours give visitors the chance to see the gold-leaf ceilings, 30-foot chandeliers, decorative carpeting and the backstage area with a historic costume shop. The highlight of the tour is a meeting with a Rockette, one of the world-renowned high-stepping dancers who have graced the stage since its inception. TRAIN: E, F to Fifth Ave
