There’s so much to see in New York City that it’s possible to live here your entire life and still not be able to see it all. So, if you’re only visiting for a quick trip, it’s important to get the most out of your trip and see all of the places you want to see within your visit.

Central Park

One of the most filmed locations in the world, the famed Central Park is a New York must-see and listed in every NYC travel guide as a top choice. Roam around and explore all of its beauty or pick a particular part of the park, like The Ramble, to zero in on a certain location without getting too lost in all of the looming trees.

Empire State Building

The 102-story skyscraper was one of the world’s tallest buildings for almost 40 years until it was topped by the original World Trade Center. Regardless of height, the building is still a cultural icon and a National Historic Landmark. It is perhaps most iconic from its appearance in King Kong in which the title character climbs to the top to escape his captors before falling to his death. Many visitors photograph the building either from 28th Street or as they get closer to 34th Street.

Statue of Liberty

A gift from the French, this copper statue and New York attraction is situated on Liberty Island south of Ellis Island, where many immigrants passed through on their journey to America. There is no charge to visit the monument, but one must board Statue Cruises, which departs from Liberty State Park in Jersey City and Battery Park in Lower Manhattan. It should also be noted that there is a fee to climb the staircase within the crown, and visitors must reserve a ticket up to a year in advance. Fun fact: 240 people per day are permitted to ascend.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Colloquially known as The Met, this museum is the largest in the United States and is also among the most visited art museums in the world. With over two million various works of art, the museum attracts a variety of people from serious artists to casual admirers. Even the steps leading up to the building are recognizable from various films and popular TV shows, like The CW’s Gossip Girl. A little known fact about the museum is that it has a suggested entrance fee, but you may pay what you wish at the door.

Top of the Rock

30 Rockefeller Plaza is one of the most recognizable skyscrapers in New York and one of the most popular things to do in NYC, especially for romantic holidays like Valentine’s Day. Top of the Rock is the observation deck atop the skyscraper that arguably lends the most panoramic view of the city. The building is also well known for being the headquarters of NBC, which owns floors 1-30 and 50-59.
