    10 Ways to See New York

    In New York everywhere there is something to see. But ways to see everything can be different. In the following list, we present 10 ways to discover "Big Apple".

    1. Walking
    Manhattan is an island, which is about 25 km long and 4 km wide. This means that if we "melt" our soles we can walk it. In Lower Manhattan and Midtown Manhattan are the most of the attractions. Walk afraid and you will not even understand when you turned the whole island. For long distances, there is the metro and the buses that you can find everywhere.

    2. By bus
    There are two types of tourist buses in New York. Hop On Hop Off bus that lets you go down to stops with points of interest, take your ride, and get on the next one with the same ticket. These buses cover routes for the entire Manhattan Island and for the neighboring municipalities of Brooklyn and Bronx. There are also tourist buses that make stops without having the opportunity to take the next one with no charge. Usually these routes are during the night. You can find tickets for 1, 2 or 3 days.

    3. From the buildings
    Two are Manhattan buildings that allow public access to their observatory. The Empire State Building and GE Building (Top of the Rock) at Rock feller Center. The Empire State Building has one of the world's most popular outdoor observatories, with over 110 million tickets sold ever since it first started. The main observatory, on the 86th floor (outdoor) and the second on the 102nd (enclosed), offer impressive New York City views to all sides (360 degrees). There is a second watchtower on the 102nd floor which is open to the public. The Observatory at Top of the Rock, which is designed to look like a ocean deck, offers travelers a panoramic view of the whole city and competes with the 86th floor observatory of the Empire State Building. It is often considered the best panoramic view of the city simply because it offers the view of the Empire State Building.

    4. On a cruise ship
    There are too many kinds of cruise ships around the island of Manhattan. These boats go to the Statue of Liberty, pass under the impressive bridges and offer you a different view of the landmarks and views of Manhattan. Some of the boats can offer a dinner or drink. Routes vary and can range from one hour to 2.5 hours. Whatever the experience you will experience will not have a precedent.

    5. Sailboat
    Two sailboats cruise around the island of Manhattan. Clipper City and Shear water. Clipper City, is a copy of a wooden shroud that has led the American industry more than a century ago. The 48-meter-long boat, with sails up to 36.5 meters from the deck, is New York's largest and most elegant sailboat and can accommodate up to 150 passengers. Shear water is a hand-crafted sailboat built in 1929 from hardwoods 25 meters long. It is a landmark of New York and has been in the harbor since 2001. The boat can accommodate up to 48 passengers, and departs daily from Lower Manhattan.

    6. With "The Beast" Speedboat
    The "monster" is a speedboat that takes you to a 30-minute cruise in the breathtaking New York Harbor. At a speed of 40 knots (over 45 mph), the "monster" is a roller coaster of water. Hold your hats firmly and enjoy this unique ride. The boat makes a small stop very close to the Statue of Liberty for photographs and then returns to the port at the same frantic pace.

    7. With footpath tours
    Surely walking as we said is a way you are imposing to get to know the city. But there are dozens of walking tours where a tour guide along with other tourists guides you in different places and tells you their story. Some of these tours include gastronomic walks, Broadway tours, Gospel churches, tours of buildings and operas, sightseeing tours of the city and many more. Surely a New Yorker will show his city much better.

    8. By bicycle
    The city of New York is biker friendly and of course has created the right infrastructure. Everywhere there are marked cycle paths, even on the bridges suitable for bike routes. Two of the bike tracks that stand out. Through the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway, you can turn around Manhattan Island all the way through regular roads. You can can rent a Copenhagen Bike Company bicycle and stard your New York bike adventure This "journey" will take you from the Hatson River, Harlem, the East River, and end up in Bathri Park. The second is the exploration of the Central Park. Throughout Manhattan you will find Copenhagen Bike Company rental and equipment. Bicycle guided tours are also organized along with a tour guide.

    9. By helicopter
    In New York there are many companies offering an unprecedented helicopter ride. The price may be a little pricked but it's an experience you need to experience. The ride lasts 20 minutes and flies you over the Statue of Liberty along the Hats on River. You will also have the chance to see some of New York's most important attractions high up like the 9/11 Memorial / Freedom Tower, Battery Park, Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden, Chrysler Building, Times Square, Central Park, Intrepid, Harlem, Columbia University, Yankee Stadium, George Washington Bridge and many more. A walk costs about $ 150 per person.

    10. From the bridges
    Most bridges connecting Manhattan to neighboring municipalities also feature pedestrian crossings. Prefer to walk these routes in Manhattan to get the chance to enjoy the amazing horizon stretching out in front of you. The main pedestrianized bridges are Brooklyn Bridge, Queensboro Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, Williamsburg Bridge, and George Washington Bridge, the only one that connects Manhattan to neighboring New Jersey. You may also enjoy discovering the island through the bridges by using a bicycle for much more fun. Whatever you choose, this city tour will be an unforgettable experience.

    You come here to promote NYC travel modes on an ebike site, with no mention of ebike use for said travel? Does NYC welcome ebike travelers coming to visit these sites? If we all take your cue and go explore NYC on our ebikes, how will that go for us?

      Strangest spam I've seen in awhile. There's a link to Copenhagen bike company, but who knows if it's relevant. Ain't clickin it.


        Yes, more like something a paid promoter would do. Need so many posts per day. Like handing out fliers, some get dropped in the bin. Eh, who's watching, ya still get paid. At least it is semi interesting spam.
