10 of the best outdoor activities in New York
New York is a legendary city with its skyscrapers of dizzying heights, luxurious mega stores and the Statue of Liberty, an attraction for the tourists. The city that never sleeps will definitely not get bored, and no matter how high long you will stay here, definitely will be come for a second time.
A day at the height
Any visit to New York begins with a small mandatory orientation guide. But the lesson about urban geography of Manhattan will end soon, the center having streets perpendicular with each other, and numbered in order. We have streets that go through the island width, perpendicular avenues, so that any address will be easy to find, even if you decide to walk.
Empire State Building
Skyscrapers are the city’s trademark, so you’ll probably want to begin to see how city crowd’s look from the top. Empire State Building is the benchmark in this case, a visit here is on the list of every tourist from New York. We’d recommend going up in Rockefeller Center, Top of the Rock, whose height Kodak specialists will capture a beautiful view in the background.
Rock Center Cafe
Rock Center Cafe is our dining recommendation in this area, the elegant restaurant is on the ground floor of Rockefeller Center, and for dessert take a visit to the famous Magnolia Bakery to taste a cupcake no less famous. Winter, the floor center rises the most beautiful tree in New York, and is held in front of the rink.
The Metropolitan Museum
In addition to skyscrapers, New York is famous for its museums. MET (The Metropolitan Museum) will take you through different areas of art, from ancient Egypt to the medieval period, and will present modern arts, and can admire and various works. Another museum that is worth to be on your list is AMNH (American Museum of Natural History) – where a highlight is the new planetarium, which shows you the universe and its evolution in a scene at 360 degrees.
Certainly yes, it is mandatory while you are in New York to go to one of the many famous theaters from Broadway. Whether you choose a musical or a classical play (or both) should not miss the Broadway experience. During this time you can see in various shows on Scarlett Johanson and Catherine Zeta Jones.
Central Park, a huge oasis between towers and sumptuous suites, offers this possibility. During the summer you can sit here and relax with a good book, or you can jog on countless alleys of the park. You should not miss any zoo, where you can have fun with the seals and penguins and other wildlife.
Statue of Liberty
Is present in every souvenir shop in hundreds of reproductions of various sizes. But to visit, you have to plan the visit from time. To reach on the Statue Island should take a ferry called Statue Cruise, who will stop first on Ellis Island.
Surely you’ve seen this bridge in countless movies (if you do not remember one, I tell you: the place of meeting between Miranda and Steve at the end of Sex and the City: The Movie). So you really have to walk on it. Take a taxi from the Financial District (where you can see Ground Zero, the place until 2001 terrorist attacks on World Trade Center twin towers, and where you can document about the plans and reconstruction work already started).
