Bright city, big lights – I can’t put into words, how stunning this city is, you should see it on your own! I was the first time there and I was really flashed and fascinated about this place. All over there are these shining lights, these endless high skyscrapers, so many different people together at one place and around every corner you’ll find something new – NYC will cast a spell over you, I promise 😉
We arrived in the big apple at around 11 p.m. and it wasn’t possible to have a jet leg. We started immediately to discover this place and we also became in the first hours a meaning about the saying “this city never sleeps” – it’s really so 🙂 You can get within a radius of a mile everything you want – starting at coffee, food, clothing and interior, up to a car and this 24 hours / 7 days. Everything is possible at this place!
We spend there four days ( yeah, I know, too short for this city 😉 ) and visited the following sightseeing’s:
1. The Empire State Building
First stop was the Empire State Building, from there you have a perfect view over the city.
2. Top of the Rock – Rockefeller Center
There you also have a great overview about NYC. I like this roof top view a bit more, because from the rock you have an awesome view about the city, including the Empire State Building.
3. Central Park & The Metropolitan Museum of Art
This is just the perfect combination, taking a walk through the park and on the way you can also visit the metropolitan museum of art.
4. One World Observatory – One World Trade Center
That sightseeing should absolutely be on your travel list! First, it’s the highest building in the west hemisphere and the view on it is the best city view. We went there at afternoon, to watch the sunset, this is what I can really recommend to everybody to see this once. Tip for us girls: under the tower there’s a large shopping center 😉
5. Navy Pier and The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
This is also a nice combination, because the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is on the Navy Pier. In summer it’d be definitely a great place. Also the view of the NYC skyline from the museum is very great.
6. Statue of Liberty
I think the Statue of liberty should everybody visit once in life, but don’t wonder about the size. I also thought it would be much larger and impressive as it is. If you also plan to visit the crown of the statue, you should reserve the tickets about 3-5 month before.
Some impressions from the city
Travel tip: We had a 48-hour-ticket for the hop-on-hop-off bus and this is really great. You see a lot from the city and can get in and out at every important sightseeing. We also had the new york city pass, where you can choice the leading sightseeing’s, which you want to visit, we also had with it no waiting times and you can also save money 😉
