Whether you have little time in the Big Apple or you are taking it slowly, there are five visits in New York you can’t miss.
From the top of the building, situated at 30°Rockefeller Plaza, you can see the most wonderful city’s views, from Central Park, Empire State, Chrysler, One WTC and even the Statue of Liberty. The normal ticket for an adult to the terrace costs 29$ and it can be bought from Spain clicking in http://topoftherocknyc.com/ or in the ticket office. The timetable is between 8am to 11pm; I recommend going a just in time to sunset, so you can take advantage of the view both of day and night, with the buildings light up. You can get the information of the exact sunset hour in any local meteorological web, and then you’ll know for sure at what time you can go up.
To dedicate a whole morning or afternoon to get lost its paths is totally worth it, whether is on foot or bicycle (you can rent them in the park and close-by streets). If you don’t have much time, I’ll recommend not losing the Bethesda Terrace; you’ll know it when you see it, for the huge amount of movies recorded there. You can get there thought The Mall or the Strawberry Fields, which is really close.
The other face of NY, Europe like buildings, stores, bars, restaurants, street markets and a relax environment make this neighborhoods ideal when you are tired of skyscrapers. And if you loved FRIENDS, you have an obligated appointment at the corner of Bedford and Grove to take a picture in front of the building.
You can visit it taking the subway to High Street, blue line A or C, and take a walk in the Promenade, taking thousands of pictures, or seeing it from a boat in one of the many cruisers you can take that surrounds Manhattan; that way you’ll also see MANHATTAN BRIDGE that’s even prettier than Brooklyn’s.
There are many ways to see it, you can take an specific excursion to Ellis Island, making a line along all the tourist that choose this excursion, visit the statue from the inside, buying souvenirs, etc. But if you don’t enjoy waiting and you are ok with just a couple of pictures of the Great Lady you can also take one of the many ferries that surround MANHATTAN Island. They all usually stop a little while in front of it so tourist can take pictures. There is even the option of taking the FERRY to STATEN ISLAND, for free, which goes in front of the statue coming and going.
