What To See In New York In Seven Days

May 23, 2008
Being a twenty four hour city, a visitor may find that seven days in New York just isn't enough time to take in everything it has to offer. One of the most important places to see is the Empire State Building; it has a facade that is famous around the world. Of course, many people prefer the view form the Rockefeller Center which is a little higher, but it can be difficult to see anything when there is bad weather. Another famous landmark, the Statue of Liberty cannot be seen properly unless it is from the river; however delays can be long here so if you are on a tight schedule, stop off at Ellis Island and view the statue from there.

The Staten Island ferry can still be traveled on without cost and can offer excellent photo opportunities of the Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty; it is also worth walking around the terminal as well as there are many excellent street performers there. However, no seven day trip to New York would be complete now without a visit to where the World Trade Center Towers once stood not that long ago. Despite the moving nature of this place where over 3,000 people lost their lives, most people do not wish to take a picture of it. Shopping is one of the many reasons visitors flock to New York whether it is for good old-fashioned discounts along Broadway or in the Warehouses down Lower East Side or the beautiful and extravagant Tiffany's, New York has it all.

Whereas there are stores like Macey's who are happy to take your tourist discount card and give you an eleven percent discount to the very exclusive Bloomingdales who probably won't. An excellent tourist location is the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum which is likely to be closed until the end of 2008; once the refurbishment is complete it will be worth visiting when it re-opens. Many special (and large) craft are located here including a number from World War II, namely the aircraft carrier the USS Intrepid. Although it is actually free to enter, the NY City Police Museum is funded by donations from visitors (five dollars is the recommended amount); because it's about New York's finest (and some not so fine), it has some really excellent NYPD souvenirs.

The Lower East Side also has a very large time capsule called The Lower East If Central Park is on your list of places to see then there is another museum aptly named the City of New York Museum which has exhibitions exploring the city's past, its present and the future. The building's pretty grand and the shop sells quality souvenirs and whilst admission to this venue is free, a nine dollar donation is recommended.

It is all housed in a beautiful building and entrance is free but a nine dollar donation is recommended. Most visitors seem to be on a flying visit so end up missing some of the most beautiful areas and that's why seven days in New York should really be the minimum stay.
