Visit the Most Prominent Places with Flights to New Yorkby Daisy Wilkinson Travel Guides
One of the most famous cities in the world, New York is also known as 'NYC' or 'New York City'. Although it is a hub of economic and cultural activities, you'll have many things to explore in this part of the United States of America (USA). More than 3 million individuals living in New York were born outside the USA and nearly 800 languages are spoken in the city, making it the world's most linguistically diverse city. It was founded in the 17th century as a trading post by the Dutch colonists. Over the years that followed, it rose to prominence and has now become one of the most sought-after destinations.
You can save a significant amount upon booking your flights to New York several months in advance and utilise the savings made while exploring the prominent attractions of the city. Among them is the Statue of Liberty, which is one of the greatest icons of the country and a world-famous symbol of freedom. It was a gift of France to the USA and was built in the late 19th century. Today, it is among the largest statues in the world and can be seen from several locations in New York City. You can take a short boat trip to the Liberty Island if you wish to see it closely, walk around the base, get into the pedestal, or go straight up to the crown.
Another excellent attraction in this city is Central Park, which gives you the chance to unwind amidst pleasant natural surroundings after sightseeing for a while. The crisscrossed pathways of this park allow you to take a stroll, go cycling, or enjoy a carriage ride. During winters, you can put on your skates and glide across Wollman Rink. You'll find several attractions within this park, such as the Belvedere Castle, Central Park Zoo, and Strawberry Fields. Most of the attractions within the borders of this park are free for all visitors.
The Empire State Building is yet another popular attraction you must visit while in New York City. When this building opened in 1931, it was the tallest building in the world. It is one of the popular landmarks of this city and comprises 102 floors. You can savour awe-inspiring views of the city and its surroundings from the two observatories located in the building. One is the highest open-air observation deck of New York City and is located on the building's 86th floor. The Top Deck on the 102nd Floor has an enclosed viewing area.
If you wish to explore some brilliant artefacts spanning 5,000 years, the Metropolitan Museum of Art would be the ideal place to visit. It is commonly known as 'The Met' and is among the most renowned museums in the USA. This museum has three sites located at different places in the city, but the most prominent one is 'The Met Fifth Avenue', which is home to vast collections that include Egyptian art, American decorative arts, musical instruments, and many other items. You can also consider taking the VIP Empty Met Tour, which is held in the morning before the museum opens to the general public.
