What to see & do

Empire State Building – The Empire State Building is probably one of the most famous skyscrapers not only in New York but also in the United States and the world. It is a 102-storey building located in Manhattan, on Fifth Avenue between West 33rd and 34th streets. The building is generally thought of as an American Cultural icon, designed in the distinctive Art Deco style that has been named one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. 

Statue of Liberty – The Statue of Liberty is one of the more popular monuments around the world and in the United States. It is a colossal neo-classical sculpture located on Liberty Island. The statue, designed by Frederic Auguste Bartholdi, was a gift to the United States from the people of France. The statue is a robed female figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess of Freedom, who bears a torch and a tabula ansata, which is a tablet evoking the law. The statue is an icon of freedom and of the United States; a welcoming signal to immigrants arriving from abroad. 

Central Park – The Central Park is a popular urban park located in Manhattan in New York. It is owned by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, and was initially opened in 1857 on 778 acres of city-owned land. It is a patch of green amongst the grey skyscraper-laden jungle, a refreshing sight to New Yorkers as well as to its visitors. 

Rockefeller Center – The Rockefeller Center is a complex of 19 commercial buildings covering 22 acres between the 48th and 51st streets in New York. It is built by the Rockefeller family, and is located in the centre of Midtown Manhattan, spanning the area between the 5th and 6th avenues. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987, and is famed for its Radio City Music Hall, the Rockefeller Plaza, the underground concourse, and of course, the artwork which is scattered within the city. Various businesses from many industries are headquartered here. 

The Met – The Metropolitan Museum of Art, or colloquially the Met, is the largest art museum in the United States and one of the 10 largest in the world. Its permanent collection contains more than two million works of art, divided among 17 curatorial departments.

The Met has permanent collections from various art periods, including

classical antiquities, Ancient Egypt, European arts, and an extensive collection of American and modern art.

How to get around within New York

Major areas in the state are also served with a network of interstate highways, supplementary state routes, and others, which make driving around easy. Apart from the traffic though, which can be avoided by riding alternative transport modes such as trains, the whole state is easy to get around. 

A popular way of going around the city is riding taxis. New York taxis are pretty popular around the world and within the states, mainly because they take the centre stage in the roads and are almost everywhere.
