Visit One World Trade Center, also known as the Freedom Tower.

Take the express elevators to the Observation Deck on the 102nd Floor for the ultimate view of the spectacular New York City skyline.
Take the Statue of Liberty Express Cruise. The Express is a non-stop, one-hour boat cruise that circles Lady Liberty and offers spectacular views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Skyline. There is no security check to board the boat and on most days, crowds are small. You can take beautiful pictures of New York’s most famous tourist attraction with less wait and shorter lines. It’s a relaxed and joyful experience. It’s a non-stop boat cruise so you do not get off at Liberty Island.
Next, visit the 9/11 Memorial and Museum located at the former site of the Twin Towers. An institution that pays tribute to those who lost their lives in the attacks on the World Trade Center, it also has the largest manmade waterfalls in North America. Through immersive multimedia displays, a self-guided audio tour and first-person accounts of what happened on September 11, you’ll learn about the attacks and their aftermath.
Stop by Rockefeller Center. Featured in a array of movies, TV shows, commercials and news broadcast, Rockefeller Center is a very popular tourist area and includes attractions such as the Prometheus Statue, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, NBC Studios, the Ice Skating Rink (winter months), and the Christmas Tree (Holiday Season).
