Must-See Attractions In New York City From NYC 2 WAY

Manhattan packs more legendary icons into one compact area than any other place on earth! Not to mention New York City’s other four boroughs: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. NYC’s five boroughs are home to some of the world’s most recognizable and cherished landmarks and attractions - Times Square, the Empire State Building, Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Visiting NYC can be quite daunting, especially for the one-day or first-time visitors. Below is a list of some must-see destinations to help plan your itinerary. Plus, a rental from a trusted limousine service can make your trip a more relaxing and memorable one.

1. The NYC Skyline

New York City’s skyline is truly breathtaking and one that is instantly recognizable worldwide. The iconic skyscrapers, bridges, waterways, islands, and monuments create a fantastic panorama that is best experienced from above. Take an elevator ride up 1,050 feet to the 86th floor observation deck of the Empire State Building and enjoy a 360-degree unobstructed view of the city below. For a spectacular vista that includes the Empire State Building itself, head over to Top of the Rock, located at 30 Rockefeller Plaza (home of the NBC studios). Both the Empire State Building and Top of the Rock are open late, so don’t miss the awesome shimmer of the city’s night lights after dark.

2. The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island

The Statue of Liberty is NYC’s most recognizable landmark, a glowing beacon for generations of immigrants seeking a brighter future in America. Although you can see Lady Liberty from land, a short ferry ride to Liberty Island will bring you up close and personal. The nearby Ellis Island Immigration Museum offers a fascinating view of a historic crossroads. Here, visitors can explore the building that served as the first port of entry in the United States for nearly 12 million immigrants. Visitors can also search ship manifests for passenger names in the American Family Immigration History Center.

3. Yankee Stadium

 

For baseball fans, the Yankee Stadium is a must-see. The original Yankee Stadium opened in 1923 and was known as “The House that Ruth Built.” It served as the Yankee’s home until 2008. The new Yankee Stadium opened in 2009 and the team capped the venue’s inaugural season with their 27th World Series title. Guided tours are available for visitors. Tours include stops at the clubhouse/batting cage area (during the off season and when the team is on the road), the dugout and Monument Park, as well as the New York Yankees Museum.

5. Harlem

For a true NYC experience, you must step out after dark. Although it’s impossible to mention all the great nightlife spots in the city, here are a few recommendations: A visit to Harlem might be worth your while. Here the Apollo Theater stages its famous Amateur Night. Beyond Harlem, the city is also home to a number of other concert venues, including B.B. King Blues Club and Grill, the Highline Ballroom, and Irving Plaza, among others. These venues all host rising and multi-platinum artists.

6. NYC2WAY to the Lower East Side

The Lower East Side is one of the many neighborhoods that’s full of bars, running the gamut from classy joints to gritty dives and dancing dens. The five boroughs are also a mecca for comedy clubs, hosting headliners and rising stars every night of the week. Hire the expert services of a limousine service and stop at all of your favorite nightlife spots, without worrying about designated drivers or fighting traffic and crowds.

An NYC limousine service is a great way to get to and from all of your destination spots in the city. Whether it be to arrive at popular nightlife venues, cheer the Yankees at Yankee Stadium, or visit any of the many New York City attractions, you can ride in comfort.
