French writer, Simone de Beauvoir, once said, “there is something in the New York air that makes sleep feel useless,” and thus, The City That Never Sleeps was born.
New York City is buzzing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with endless things to do and sights to see, that even those who live in New York don’t feel as though they’ve seen everything. From the breathtaking views, historic museums, fascinating people and so much more, you can be sure every day of your visit will be filled with excitement.
STATUE OF LIBERTY + ELLIS ISLAND FERRY TOUR
They say you can’t see all of New York City in one day but taking a boat out on the Hudson River will give you a perfect view of the skyline. These four-hour tours bring you to the island for the opportunity to wander the grounds and see Lady Liberty up close. You can go inside the base of the statue and up to the observation deck for a breathtaking view of the city. After greeting Lady Liberty, the ferry will then take guests to Ellis Island for the chance to bask in the history of the immigration that took place there between 1892 and 1954. You will have the opportunity to wander the great hall and view exhibits that further explain the 12 million people who passed through the island.
CARRIAGE RIDE THROUGH CENTRAL PARK
The carriage seats up to four people including a Central Park connoisseur, who will point out historical sites around the park, as well as where certain movies were filmed. During New York Fashion Week, it is also likely there will be photoshoots going on throughout the park that you may ride past. NYC is flooded with eccentric people in show-stopping outfits during Fashion Week, who are sure to use Central Park’s gorgeous back drop to get their close-up.
TAKE A WALK DOWN 5TH AVENUE
Walking down 5th Avenue is a must on any visit to the Big Apple, but even more so during New York Fashion Week. 5th Avenue is one of the most famous streets in New York City, with countless stores, museums, galleries and restaurants, it’s hard to know where to begin.
