We believe that the best way to begin your acquaintance with the city is to take a bird’s-eye view of it, and the Empire State Building is the perfect option for this. This 102-story skyscraper has a long history, and its observation deck on the 86th floor offers a mind-blowing view of New York. Besides, you’ll find excellent shops and restaurants there.

Let’s take a stroll through the unusual 1.45-mile-long linear High Line Park. An elevated section of the former New York Central Railroad spur was transformed into the lovely Promenade with numerous benches, lush greenery, and mind-blowing views. By the way, it was inspired by the same project in Paris.

7. Statue of Liberty

No doubt it is the symbol not only of New York but of the entire USA.

It is the most famous arena in the world that saw John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Elton John, and U2 performances.
