Located at the heart of Manhattan, Times Square is an intersection for tourists, entertainers, thrill seekers, and individuals from all walks of life. Times Square is home to the famous New Year’s ball, as well as many of Broadway’s most beloved shows. In Times Square, you will hardly find yourself looking down because of all of the dazzling lights and advertisements surrounding you! If you’re looking for the epicenter of Manhattan, Times Square is the place to be!
Opened in 1857, this monumental New York City park spans 843 acres, from the East to the West side of Manhattan. The park sees over 35 million visitors a year; this is probably because there are no shortage of things to do here! With the Central Park Zoo, playgrounds, various trails and boating opportunities, there is something there for everyone. And if you’re a John Lennon fan, be sure to check out Strawberry Fields and his monument!
Located in downtown Manhattan, Battery Park is a historic park that offers visitors a peek into the past. From Battery Park, there is easy travel via ferry available to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. In the early 20th century, Ellis Island welcomed NYC’s immigrants, who became an integral part of the cultural melting pot that is Manhattan today.
