Here is a list of the top five classic attractions the ‘Big Apple’ has to offer.
New York is a classic destination for travellers, and has been from ever since the time of its inception. This big city is crawling with attractions and things to do; there is no shortage of these definitely. From five-star restaurants with award-winning cuisine to top nightclubs, bars and lounges; the list of things to enjoy here is endless.
What’s great about this city as well is the fact that most establishments are open till very late in the night and many run 24 hours a day. Apart from these great recreational venues to check out and amazing amenities though, New York has a host of places to visit where you can get a feel for the city’s rich history, as well as its cultural heritage and influence (most of which are world-famous sites and venues). These, I call the “classic attractions” of New York. Here’s a list of the top five classic attractions of the Big Apple (in no particular order):
1. Times Square
Times Square is globally renowned for its wealth of attractions in one place, as well as for its brightly lit buildings and lively, bustling atmosphere. Not only is the district a spectacle to behold, but you will also find everything you love to do in the city, from movie theatres and restaurants to places where you can do fun activities.
2. The Empire State Building
The Empire State Building Observation Deck sits nearly a quarter mile above Fifth Avenue and offers spectacular views of the city skyline. This is New York’s tallest building and used to be the world’s tallest building, holding that iconic status for decades.
3. The Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty was a gift from France to the United States in honour of their strong alliance, which came about during the French Revolution. Today it symbolizes freedom and is America’s trademark image. It is located on Liberty Island in New York and you can visit here and check out the inside of this gigantic statue.
4. The American Museum of Natural History
This museum opened to the public in 1869, and today it is home to a number of permanent exhibits and a revolving series of temporary exhibits, as well as the Rose Centre planetarium.
5. The Metropolitan Museum of Art
The Metropolitan Museum of Art houses over 2 million works of art from around the world and throughout history. It is an iconic museum with a vast and diverse collection, and is definitely worth a visit.
