Are you a New Yorker? Do you love Jazz? If you have answered ‘yes’ to these questions, I have some great news for you! Jazz queen, Annie Ross is going to perform a live concert in New York City soon. More details about the show will be updated here soon.
For Jazz lovers, who are based elsewhere in the US, this show can be the best opportunity to visit the various tourist attractions NYC has to offer as well as have fun watching Annie perform. Some of them are mentioned below:
Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty is one of the most visited places in New York City and touring the city without visiting this place would be like going back from Paris without visiting the Eiffel Tower! There are two ways to visit this iconic tourist attraction. You can either book a tour of the city or take a free ferry to Staten Island. Taking the ferry is the most economical and easy way to reach the Statue of Liberty and also, there is a ferry leaving for Staten Island every 30 minutes from Manhattan’s South Ferry terminal.
Watch NYC from Above
What can be a better view than watching the city of skyscrapers from the above? There are two points available to watch the NYC from above, Top of the Rock and Empire State building. Not one of them has any remnants of yesteryear, thanks to New York City Popcorn Ceiling Removal. Both these attractions are included in the NYC City Pass package, so you do not have to pay anything extra. However, if you have less time and can only visit one of them, I would recommend you to opt for the view from Top of the Rock, because from this point, you will also be able to watch the Empire State building in the line-up.
Metropolitan Museum of Art (the MET) and the American Museum of Natural History
NYC is home to as many as 80 museums. Of them, the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the MET) and the American Museum of Natural History are a must-visit. If you are traveling with kids and have limited time to visit both, opt for the American Museum of Natural History. It is arguably one of the best museums in the world. While you are at this place, do not forget to taste the renowned cookies from the Levain Bakery, located just a few blocks away. Both these attractions are included in the NYC CityPass package as well.
Any person who is visiting NYC for the first time should visit the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, also known as Ground Zero. It often gets crowded during the mid-day, so plan to visit this place as early in the day as possible, if you want to watch peacefully. Inside, you will have the option of renting an audio guide narrated by Robert De Niro for $7. The narration is pretty powerful and is worth the money spent. It highlights and helps visitors understand the importance of the Memorial, so do not forget to take your headphones with you. This attraction is also included in the NYC CityPass.
NYC is nestled with numerous tourist attractions all over the place, so don’t be surprised if you find something worth visiting just about every corner. If you want to make most of your trip, plan your tour for at least one week so you have enough time to visit all the attractions and find Jazz music with Annie!
