About Traveling New York City
There’s no place like New York. No matter how many times you’ve visited or how long you’ve lived here, there is always something new to discover. If you want a great view of the city, you have options. The Empire State Building, easily the city’s most famous landmark, has two observation decks offering views that extend into surrounding states. The Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center and the newly opened One World Observatory are also great vantage points.
Central Park is New York City’s backyard. Spend an afternoon in Sheep Meadow or walking through the Conservatory Garden and you’ll forget you’re in the most populous city in the country. Take a lap around the reservoir, go ice skating at Wollman Rink, visit the Central Park Zoo, or rent a rowboat. Also in Central Park: the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is the largest museum in the country and houses more than 2 million works of art.
When exploring the city’s vast dining scene, where to begin? For a true New York dining experience, grab lunch at Eisenberg’s Sandwich Shop or Russ and Daughters. A special occasion or client dinner calls for an evening at Le Bernardin, a four Michelin-starred, seafood-centric restaurant helmed by acclaimed international chef Eric Ripert. The city also has plenty middle-of-the-road options, including an endless supply of bagels and New York-style pizza.
New York City is arguably home to the finest collection of museums in the world. Visit the Museum of Modern Art for a healthy dose of Picasso, Dali, and Monet; walk through the exhibits at the American Museum of Natural History; and admire the art – and architecture – at the Guggenheim.
Venture to the Lower East Side to the South Street Seaport. 200 years ago it was the city’s main port; today, the district is being revitalized to include plenty of shops and restaurants. Tour an historic ship docked along the pier or take a harbor cruise for even better views of the skyline, East River, and Brooklyn Bridge.
Take a break and escape the concrete jungle with a visit to Sleepy Hollow, a colonial-era village just 20 miles north of the city along the Hudson. Autumn is the best time to visit. The town, which inspired the legend of the Headless Horseman, comes alive with fall festivities and foliage. It’s a history buff’s heaven, home to a handful of historic sites that date back to the 1600s.
Visit Coney Island for a literal taste of classic Americana that will make you feel nostalgic for a bygone era. The old-fashioned seaside haunt is replete with roller coasters, a Ferris wheel, and lots of boardwalk bites – namely Nathan’s Hot Dogs, which hosts its annual hot dog eating contest every July 4.
