The famous Brooklyn Bridge connects Manhattan and Brooklyn Take a stroll over the 1825m bridge to venture into Brooklyn – now one of the hippest parts of New York. The Bridge lights up at night – we recommend a nighttime bus tour of New York to see the City of Lights at its best.
Broadway is the place where dreams come true. Whether you’re a theatre fanatic or a musical novice, you can’t visit New York without taking in a Broadway show. For a truly traditional theatre experience go for a classic such as Phantom of the Opera, Les Mis or Wicked.

The 102-storey skyscraper is the perfect romantic spot to take in sinking views across the city with your loved one.

Much more than just a park, the space hosts a zoo, a concert space, a carousel, horse and carriage rides, an ice rink and more. The park also has several cafes and restaurants, but we recommend taking along a picnic and enjoying the scenery in the sunshine.
