The iconic view of Manhattan’s Skyline! Head to the Top of the Rock or the Waterfront Promenade in Williamsburg to see the Empire State Building as it gleams above city spires like a crown jewel.
Top of the Rock
Rockefeller Center is an Art Deco skyscraper, and the view at the Top of the Rock is like no other. Photo op: catching the skyline here means the Empire State building is included in the view.
Statue of Liberty
An icon of freedom, the Statue of Liberty is a must-see. Special exhibits or a climb to the top of the crown (booked in advance!) will make you feel like a part of NYC’s special history.
New York’s Fifth Avenue is the city’s most famous shopping street, and probably the most famous shopping street in the world.
Interested in finding the best eats in New York? Here are our favorites. Pizza: Check out Roberta’s, a legendary Brooklyn institution. Classic bagels and lox: Head to Russ & Daughters on the Lower East Side. Authentic diner experience: Empire Diner and Tom’s Restaurant are two of the best. Fun brunch spot: Try Prune in the East Village, or Marlow & Sons or Cafe Colette (both in Williamsburg).
There’s truly no best or worst time to visit New York, because this city is alive 24/7/365. That being said, those on a budget should look to plan a trip between January and April, when prices will be (at least a little) cheaper. Also, summer travelers should plan 6 months ahead.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Absolutely no wait to experience a truly amazing museum!
I cannot say enough about the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. It is inspiring, heartbreaking, a truly profound experience. Needless to say, the lines can become overwhelming. Booking through Get Your Guide made the experience quite simple, allowing us to focus on our visit. I highly recommend Get Your Guide. We have used their services in NY, London, and Glasgow. Looking forward to using them in other cities as well!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Finally paid honor to so many’s sacrifices, standing where they rest.
A beautiful honor to the many who perished innocently & to those who heroically went in to save them and perished with them. May it eternally help future generations to come to Never Forget the sacrifices. I cried again as I did on 9/11/2001. Thank you for this memorial, a testament to man’s love for our fellowman.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ A fantastic tour of all the best sights with an amazing guide
A brilliant way to see New York if you only have a short time as you get to experience all the major sights with a fantastically friendly and knowledgable guide. The observatory entry is a must-see you get the most incredible view of the whole island and beyond. Lynsey our guide was warm, funny and so helpful and gave us the confidence to explore further on our own in the days after her tour.
New York: “Must See” Full-Day Tour with Observatory Entry reviewed by Sharon
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Tour was excellent because of our excellent tour guide Erik strauss
The only disappointment was we were not informed we had a specific time to go to the observatory and were at the museum when we realized we missed our time slot. Not aware there was a specific time.
