About History Tours in New York in New York City
Sightseeing? Hello, this is NEW YORK CITY. Where do you want to start? You can’t turn your head without spotting another cinematic site. You’ll see more tourists than locals in Times Square, but for sheer sensory overload, this eight-block stretch of the Great White Way—AKA Broadway—offers a jolt that can't be beat. Within walking distance are the Empire State Building, Central Park, the Met and Rockefeller Center. The best way to take in the Manhattan skyline—"high growths of iron, slender, strong, light, splendidly uprising toward clear skies," as native son Walt Whitman described it—is to leave the island: walk across the Brooklyn Bridge at sunset to the Promenade or Brooklyn Bridge Park, or ride the free-for-everybody Staten Island Ferry through New York Harbor. That’s the Statue of Liberty on your right (but you knew that) and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge straight ahead.
