Guidebook New York City
It is probably the most frequented city in the United States. Famed for fashions, night life, art, dining and theatre, New York is the center of the city. However a city like this is jumped to have some great deals, and there are plenty of things to do that won't take you several of your savings a few month.
It is free, there are many small hiking trails and since it stretches over 40 boulders, it is simple to wander around for long periods of time. On Saturdays from the end of the year until early autumn at 11 a.m. there are free of charge tours by the park services. Freedom Tower offers you a panorama of the city and plenty of information about the September 11 atrocities.
There is a memorial garden at the foot of the lighthouse to the memory of the 11 September attack and a large museuseum. It is spacious and visually appealing, so you should spend a whole afternoon here. Open every morning from 10.00-17.30 pm, on Fridays and Saturdays the opening times are longer.
Surrounded by viewpoints, parks, open-air arts, eating stands and greens, this is one of the best activities in the city, especially on a beautiful outing. Walking, sitting with a ledger, watching folks. Go a few steps to the Staten Island shuttle. A free shuttle takes you across the harbour and gives you a good look at the Statue of Liberty and the city' s Skyline.
Cross the Brooklyn Bridge and enjoy an interesting panorama of the New York harbour and the city. It is a long stroll, but good eating and drinking (like the brewery) awaits you on the other side. A stop for photography and a meander along the path makes the stroll about 40 mins. long.
I' m enjoying this stroll at sunset when Manhattan' s city centre is illuminated. Whilst the MET is a separate class, New York City has a dozen worthwhile visits. Three of the largest are the Natural History and Natural History Museum, the MoMA and the Guggenheim. The 11 musees on the Central Park are located near the Central Park.
Choose the ones you want to see the most and go to them all, unless you have a few days in New York to see them all. What could be a more US theatre than Radio City Music Hall? The trips take place every day from 9:30-17:00 and are $27 (you can get a rebate by buying your ticket online).
You will find many prohibition-style pubs that serve classical beverages while performing classical jazzy and swingmusic. Entering these pubs with the sound, the dancers and everyone who put on the role takes me back to a period when things were stylish, careless and comical. They can only be visited through a tour and must be reserved in advanced.
Entrance is $25 and is open every day from 10.00-18.30, with additional opening on Thursdays. Walk through the Rockefeller Center to see where they shoot The Today Show, go shopping, eat and take the lift to the Top of the Rock to see the city from a bird perspective (which I myself think is better than the Empire State House, because from up here you can also see the edifice in your photo!
Ticket prices are $34 and open every day from 8-12am (midnight). Go from the eastern to the western side and admire the fine New York architectural styles such as Grand Central Station, Union Square, the New York Times buildung, the Chrysler buildung and much more. There' s so many historical monuments in New York City, it's a good afternoons just to wander around and watch them.
Called Battery Park for the old battery (cannons) that defends the city, stop here for local musicians and road artists, observing humans, relax, and all other activity related to the theme parks. It is also possible to discover the remains of the old fortress that guarded the city. Photograph the famed Taurus, then go to Wall St and see where all these financiers wrecked the world.
The NYSE (NYSE) is one of the most visited museum in the city. The Museum of American Finance is located near the NYSE and Federal Hall. Located in a historical Wall St. bench house (of course!), it has standing exhibitions on the finance market, finance, banking, business and Alexander Hamilton (the founding father of the US finance system).
When you want to know what is happening on Wall Street, this is a great starting point. The Grand Central Terminal is the city' s historical railway terminal. The building was to be demolished in 1975, but was rescued by Jacqueline Kennedy, who collected funds for its upkeep.
There is also an astonishing restaurant in the lower floor, the Grand Central Oyster Bar & Restaurant. Once upon a time there was the offices of John W. Campbell, a member of the New York Central Railroad and Finanztycoon Executive Committee from the 1920s. Between 1934 and 1939 it was constructed with Rockefeller funds from parts of five monasteries in Europe.
They even decided that the country on the other side of the stream would be left unexplored forever, so the views would not be affected! It' one of the best things to do in town. Every fortnight there are free guided visits explaining the story of the Musée and the works and objects on display. A $25 contribution is proposed to get in (including admission to the Metropolitan Musuem of Art).
It is open every day from 10-17:15 and has longer opening times in april. What is scoop on a wallpaper like? While I don't like contemporary arts, this is Van Gogh's Starry Night as well as other post-impressionist work. It is open every day from 10:30-17:30 and has longer opening times on Fridays.
Fridays after 4pm the school is free (and I like to see Van Gogh for free)! Leave Manhattan and discover Brooklyn's Central Park experience and the Brooklyn Museums in the immediate vicinity. Television shows such as Saturday Night Live, The View, Live Night with Stephen Colbert, The Daily Show, Last Week Tonight and Jimmy Fallon's Live Night with Jimmy Fallon are offering free taping passes (although they must be booked well in advance).
Since Manhattan is unbelievably pricey, if you want more value for your investment, you should stay in Brooklyn or Jersey City. Avarage costs of groceries - New York has groceries in every budget category. You can' t find a slice of pancake as little as a buck, although it usually costs about $3 sandwich stores, kebab, salad bars and coffee lunches are generally less than $10.
When cooking your own nutrition, you are expecting to be paying around $60 per week for grocery stores that includes pastas, veggies, chicken and other essential foods. Transport charges - New York and its districts (and parts of New Jersey) are really well served by metro. Usually taxis in the city are about $15.
