Summary of points of interest in this travel guide to New York City, Nueva York, Estados Unidos


Empire State Building

Why visit:

Try imagining New York City’s skyline without the towering spire of the Empire State Building. Impossible, right? Taking a mere 11 months to construct, the 1,454-foot-tall emblem became the city’s highest building upon completion in 1931.

a day option

Brooklyn Bridge

Why visit:

No mere river crossing, the Brooklyn Bridge is one of the most popular New York attractions. When it opened in 1883, the bridge was considered a feat of engineering: It was the first structure built to span the East River, and at the time, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world.

a day option
at Brooklyn Bridge

a option
at Prospect Park


BACK TO TOP
Prospect Park, a tour attraction in New York, NY, United States

Yankee Stadium

Why visit:

The Bombers’ current field opened in 2009 to much fanfare and stands opposite the now-flattened original.

a day option
at 1 E 161st St

Why visit:

Manhattan’s heart was once a hub for vice, teeming with sex shops and drug dealers. Over time that notorious reputation has eroded, and now the area can feel like a tourist-clogged shopping mall. Still, changes such as the stairs above the TKTS booth and a pedestrian plaza along Broadway have improved the sightseeing experience…sort of. If the thought of attending the annual glitzy New Year’s Eve celebration gives you hives, you can see the midnight countdown re-created on a smaller scale at the Times Square Visitor Center, thanks to one of the Waterford crystal balls used in years past.
