What to do in New York

New York, the concrete jungle, boasts countless amazing experiences. With its world-famous skyline and bustling streets, the possibilities are endless. Whether you’re an art lover seeking world-class museums, visiting the dazzling skyscrapers or a history buff exploring landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, New York has it all. From the energy of Times Square to the greenery of Central Park, the Big Apple captivates with its mix of cultures and its vigour. Discover the six best things to do in the metropolis here.

Top six things to do in New York

1. Admire the skyline from the skyscrapers

New York’s skyscrapers offer unparalleled views of the breathtaking skyline and give you the chance to admire the city from a new perspective. The Empire State Building, with its art deco cutting edge, offers a 360° view from its observation deck. At Top of the Rock, atop Rockefeller Center, you’ll be treated to a view that includes the Empire State Building itself. The One World Observatory offers a remarkable vantage point as well as a reminder of New York’s recovery since 9/11. Head to the One Vanderbilt SUMMIT for a combination of vistas and technology. And don’t miss The Edge, an outdoor terrace that hangs high above the streets of Manhattan.

2. Explore the many top museums

New York is a treasure trove of museums. The Metropolitan Museum of Art – known as The Met – showcases a vast collection spanning centuries and continents, with many famous masterpieces. The Museum of Modern Art – known as MoMA – houses groundbreaking contemporary works of art and has rotating exhibitions. The American Museum of Natural History fascinates with its dinosaur fossils, cultural artifacts and displays. The 9/11 Memorial and Museum serves as a poignant tribute, honouring the lives lost and sharing stories of resilience. All museums offer enriching insights into art, history and culture and are indispensable for anyone seeking inspiration.

3. Discover Times Square

Times Square, in the middle of Manhattan, is a glittering testament to New York’s vibrancy and dynamism. This legendary intersection, with its neon signs and towering billboards, is all about excitement. As you navigate through the throngs of people, you’ll be immersed in a world of lights, street performers and theatres. Times Square is not only a commercial centre but also a cultural hotspot, hosting important events such as the New Year’s Eve ball drop. A trip to New York would be incomplete without experiencing the energy of Times Square – it’s a must-see for any visitor.

4. Take the boat to the Statue of Liberty

The Statue of Liberty continues to fascinate visitors to New York. This colossal statue on Liberty Island was a gift from France to the US. Eye-catching features include the design by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and the internal framework designed by Gustave Eiffel. Visiting the Statue of Liberty by boat is an exciting experience, especially when you approach the island and see its grandeur up close. The statue and the exhibits surrounding it make you think about the values of America and the significance of this monument.

5. Unwind in Central Park

Leafy Central Park, in the middle of Manhattan, lures visitors with its beauty and chance to disconnect. This park is larger than Monaco and has 36 bridges, including the famous Bow Bridge, which offers scenic views. The angel-topped Bethesda Fountain, with its splashing water, is a soothing gathering place. During a visit to Central Park, you can escape the decibels of the city, enjoy nature and activities such as a picnic, cycling or rowing on the lake. Its filming locations, bridges and lawns make it an irresistible New York attraction.

6. Visit St Patrick’s Cathedral

A majestic architectural gem, St Patrick’s Cathedral graces Fifth Avenue in the heart of Manhattan. Completed in 1878, this Gothic revival masterpiece features intricate stone carvings and beautiful stained-glass windows. Construction took more than 20 years. St Patrick’s offers a serene sanctuary in the middle of the city. The grand interior and peaceful atmosphere invite you to contemplate and appreciate its spiritual significance. Whether seeking solace, admiring craftsmanship or exploring New York’s religious heritage, a visit to St Patrick’s Cathedral is a spiritual experience.

But to immerse yourself in the city's atmosphere and discover lesser-known places, we recommend that you come for at least a week.
