for First-Time Visitors New York City is known as “the city that never sleeps.” So if you’re preparing to take a bite out of the famous “Big Apple” for the first time, then we’re here to help. Here are our 18 expert choices for the top 18 things to do in New York City for first-time visitors.
Take In The Sweeping Skyline
Manhattan has an iconic skyline of skyscraping buildings and island terrain. There are three noteworthy places from which to see it. The famous Empire State Building offers outdoor and indoor observation platforms on the 102nd and 86th floors. There’s also Rockefeller Center’s popular Top of the Rock with multilevel observation decks on floors 67 through 70.
Finally, the newest observation areas are located on the 100th through the 102nd floors of the One World Observatory. (For a free view, walk out onto the well-known Brooklyn Bridge.)
Go Boating Into New York Harbor
You might forget while in the center of the concrete jungle but you’re visiting an island. Located at New York Harbor’s mouth and flanked on two sides by the East and Hudson Rivers, NYC is a busy maritime port.
Go sailing on the perimeters and learn of its great architectural proportions and geography. See Lady Liberty too standing on her islet. Ride a sightseeing boat like the Staten Island Ferry, sail on a Classic Harbor Line schooner or take sailing lessons at the Offshore Sailing School.
