The Ultimate New York Bucket List

From bright lights to iconic landmarks, New York is a city-goer’s dream. Arguably the world’s epicentre of culture, art, shopping and dining, the list of things to see and do in this 780-square metre metropolis is endless. We’ve put together the ultimate must do’s when you find yourself in the Big Apple.

1. Stand above the city on the 102nd floor of New York’s defining monument, the Empire State Building and take in the breathtaking panoramic views that stretch 128km before your eyes.


2. Walk, run, cycle or skate across the Brooklyn Bridge, taking around 40 minutes and connecting Manhattan and Brooklyn.


3. Join the crowds, flashing billboards and sensory overload at the ‘crossroads of the world’, Times Square.


4. Get up close and personal with the Statue of Liberty on Ellis Island.


5. Whether you jump aboard a horse and carriage, bicycle, explore on foot or set up for a picnic, you’re sure to be enchanted by the magic of Central Park.


6. Pay your respects at the 9/11 memorial where 30-foot waterfalls sit on the footprint where the Twin Towers once stood.


7. Visit Grand Central Station, not only the world’s largest and busiest railway station at 76 acres, but one of the globe’s most magnificent public spaces.


8. Spanning four city blocks and made up of 45 exhibition galleries, the American Museum of Natural History is the largest of its kind in the world and is home to more than 30 million artefacts from the land, sea and outer space.
