Experience New York: what to do, what to see

If you think you’ve pinned New York down, you should think again. It's hard to sum up a city this size in just a couple of sights, but there are a few essentials that you shouldn't miss while on holidays in New York.

Essentials in New York

Empire State Building: A landmark skyscraper in New York’s cityscape, the Empire State Building was the world’s tallest building for forty years and is still the city’s tallest building. Visitors are invited up the tower to an observation deck.

Central Park: The most famous park in New York, perhaps in the USA, is located in Manhattan and is a treasured green-space in the city. Ice skate on the historic Wollman Rink and visit the Imagine Mosaic in Strawberry Fields.

Statue of Liberty: A gift from France to celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence, this is one of the country’s most recognised symbols. Take the ferry to Ellis Island.
