Touring New York City
Touring New York City
Times Square, “The Crossroads of the World” is a must-visit, of course. Come and gawk, catch a show or the subway, dine, and shop. The Times Square Visitor Center is on 7th Ave. between 46th and 47th. Just a block east, from 40th St. to 50th St., between Sixth and Fifth Avenues, are Bryant Park, The New York City Public Library, Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
Central Park is a 2.5 mile by 0.5 mile oasis stretching from Central Park West (8th Ave.) to 5th Ave., 59th St. to 110th St. The park’s roadways close to cars on weekends, a bicyclist’s dream. Rent a bike at the park’s Columbus Circle entrance, or the Loeb Boat House (which rents boats, too), near E. 75th and Fifth Ave. Strawberry Fields, dedicated to John Lennon, is near W. 72nd and Central Park West—visit http://www.centralparknyc.org.
Lower Manhattan: For the harbor view, the Statue of Liberty Ferry, or the Staten Island Ferry, head to Battery Park at the southern tip of the island. The Staten Island Ferry is free, and runs around-the-clock (great nighttime views). In the mile between there and City Hall are Wall St, Fraunces Tavern, The South Street Seaport, Trinity Church, and Ground Zero. You can even walk across the Brooklyn Bridge! The 9/11 Memorial is on the site of the World Trade Center towers. A free, timed pass is required for entry, and is only available online—visit http://visit.911memorial.org.
Ferries and cargo vessels dot New York harbor
Near the Cruise Terminal: The Hudson River Greenway, a bike and walking path, runs past the terminal and the length of Manhattan, connecting the city’s riverfront parks. Stroll, or rent from Bike and Roll, on Pier 84 at 43rd St. Visit http://www.bikenewyorkcity.com. The Intrepid, Circle Line Tours, and World Yacht (weekend lunch cruises), are just south of the terminal.
