The plan, naturally, indicative, it all depends on your strength and desire. At the same time you can see what it looks like New York in winter.

I will immediately say that New York city is dear, but the ability to save is always everywhere and everywhere. In some articles, we open the secrets with Andrews:

So, the sights of New York.

Also, for planning a visit to New York, you will use the following articles:

1 day

Rockefeller Center (TOP OF THE ROCK)

The famous skyscraper of New York, on which, undoubtedly, should be climbed to see Manhattan in all its glory. I recommend coming here early to see what New York looks like in the morning. WITH TOP OF THE ROCK You can see an excellent panorama of the Central Park and Downtowana.

The best views are open from the 70th floor, because it is on it that there is an open observation deck with a review 360°. There are two more glazed areas for 67 and 69 floors.

Address: 50th St. between 5th and 6th Avenues

How to get to the subway: B, D, F, V to 47-50th Street Rockefeller Center

The cost of the input ticket (without City Pass): For adults – $ 29, for children 6-12 years – $ 18, for children up to 6 years – is free.

Mode of operation: Daily from 8:00 to 24:00, last elevator upstairs goes at 23:00. Less people from 8 to 10 am or from 22 to 23 pm.

Top Of The Rock cost us cheaper because we bought City Pass in advance, with him disappeared and the need to stand in flights for tickets. If you still have not read what is City Pass and what it differs from NEW YORK PASS, I recommend familiarizing.

Statue of Liberty (Statue of Liberty) and Ellis Island (Ellis Island)

I think the question is, attending a green lady or not, not even put. Of course! After all, this is a symbol not only New York, but also all of America.

Hit Liberty Island it is possible on the ferry, before landing on which, all things thoroughly check.

Fly to the island about 10 minutes. After arrival you can walk and take pictures or watch or look into the binoculars on the skyscrapers of Manhattan.

In order to get on the pedestal statues, you need to go through another check. In my opinion, there is nothing to do on the pedestal. Bottom types open better.

By the way, before the ascent, there will have to pass bags and other backpacks with tripods in the storage chamber. It is worth this pleasure $ 2 in 2 hours. Triggers fingerprint.

Bonus to the island of freedom – Island Ellis, on which all immigrants came to new light and Immigration Museum (Immigration Museum).

Where the ferry goes from: Battery Park

Departure time: every 35-40 minutes from 8:30 am, the monument is allowed to 16:15 inclusive. On holidays, the time of work may also differ, check.

Ferry ticket price (without City Pass): For adults – $ 18, for children 4-12 years – $ 9, for children up to 4 years – is free.

Additional Information: All about visiting the Statue of Liberty, including the daily schedule of departure of ferries, can be found here. Visiting the crown is paid separately and it is advisable to order a tour in advance.

Battery Park (Battery Park) and Clinton Castle (Castle Clinton)

You will see them in any case if you go to the statue of freedom. What is the first that the second attraction does not represent anything special, but for general development you can see. If you are lucky in Battery Park See some noisy street view.

Castle Clinton It may be useful with a purely practical point of view: on its territory you can take free travel guidebooks in New York.

Brooklyn Bridge (Brooklyn Bridge) and Manhattan Bridge

After fighting on the island of freedom, it will be very logical to go to Brooklyn Bridge. It is so loved to show in Hollywood films. The feature of the bridge is that it is pedestrian and all paved by a tree, only cyclists can disturb, but for them a separate track is highlighted.

A great view of Manhattan opens from the bridge.

On Manhattan Most It is not necessary to go, they can admire Brooklynsky.

Wall Street: New York Stock Exchange (New York Stock Exchange), Federal Hall (Federal Hall) and Trinity Church)

Wall Street, Perhaps this name heard each. They say it is on this street and the World Financial Story is going on. A bunch of world famous companies hiding for extremely modest signs, dwells just here on a cramped street.

On Wall Street plugged New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), It seems, now no news release is without mentioning it. Diagonally from the exchange – Federal Hall and Monument to Washington. It was in this lounge of the Federation that the first inauguration of the US President took place.

Wall Street – The street is very compact and short, but noisy and crowded tourists and labor American people. You can relax a bit from the fuddle in Church of the Trinity, Which is just the finance street ends.


The symbol of financial prosperity, they say, brings good luck in material affairs. Long queue wishing to take pictures with Bronze bomb suggests that the people believe in this bike. In addition, you must not just take a picture, but to do it, grabbing the bull for the horns, and even better, for hanging from behind between the legs.

Empire State Building (Empire State Building)

Visit Empire State Bilding (ESB) – Magnificent opportunity to see the night New York in all its glory. But, before this beauty, you will have to go through check, pass a tripod and defend a rather reason to the elevator.

The area on the 86th floor is fenced, but it does not interfere with enjoy the panorama of the city. By the way, one ticket to the skyscraper can be climbed twice: during the day and after 22:00. We schitri, because they came shortly before sunset and managed to look at Manhattan in the rays of the setting sun and with the light of sparkling lights. Impressions – super!

Address: 350 5th Ave. and 34th St.

How to get to the subway: 1, 2, 3, A, B, C, D, E, F, M, N, Q, R to 34th ST.

The cost of the input ticket (without City Pass): For adults – $ 42, for children 6-12 years – $ 36, for children under 6 years – is free. According to the standard ticket, you can take a maximum of 86 floor (believe me, more than enough), if you want to get even higher, for 102 floors, you will have to pay $ 17.

Mode of operation: daily from 8:00 am to 2:00 night, the last elevator upstairs leaves 45 minutes before closing. The least people are from 8 to 10 am or after 22 pm.

Music Hall Radio City (Radio City Music Hall)

Famous Theater Concert Hall in New York RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL is the arena, on which the most different productions are held: operas, ballet, musicals, even several times Grammy was held. On the musical hall, you can see from the side (it next to the Empire State Building) or go to one of the productions, if there is a desire, time and money, for, I think, the pleasure is not cheap.

Times Square (Times Square)

An excellent completion of the saturated experience of the day will be another sign of New York – square Times Square. Noisy, sparkling-blinking neon lights, huge advertising signs and screens. Every tourist hurries here, because there is no such thing anywhere. Crowd of zooak, tourists, costume characters of cartoons and cinema will make feel the energy of the place and accurately cheat at 100%.

Have a pleasant walking on New York, dear readers!
