New York is a fascinating city to visit – but, like in all big cities with a multitude of tourist attractions, the cost of sightseeing can soon mount up. The New York Pass allows visitors to this vibrant city to enjoy more than 70 different attractions for free.
Famous for its theatres, spectacular museums and art galleries, shopping and sports venues, New York is open for business 24 hours a day. Famous landmarks such as the Empire State Building or Ellis Island, Central Park or the mighty Hudson river itself stand out as attractions of world class.
A 24 hour pass for an adult costs USD 80.00 and a 24 hour pass for a child costs USD 60.00. The New York Pass is also available on a 2, 3 and 7 day basis, with the 7 day adult pass costing USD 185.00 and the 7 day child pass costing USD 140.00. The pass can also be purchased together with bus packages to allow hop on-hop off travel between the various attractions. The pass works just like a “smart card” at the venues and is activated, when visitors use it at their first tourist attraction entrance.
The pass includes such wonderful attractions as the Brooklyn Museum and the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, the Clipper City Tall Ship Cruise experience, Carnegie Hall tours, Staten Island Botanical Gardens and the Children’s Museum, Manhattan by Sail trips, a tour of the Rockefeller Center, Madame Tussaud’s, Madison Square Garden, the Museum of Jewish Heritage, a tour of NBC Studios, Wall Street walks and much, much more!
One of the greatest art collections in the world is housed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art at 5th Avenue, 82nd Street. There are more than 2 million works of art from 5,000 years of human history stored at the museum and during the summer (May to October) visitors can even enjoy a refreshing drink and amazing views from the museum’s Roof Gardens. The New York pass allows visitors SAME day access, a sort of priority admission scheme, so one can beat the queues and enjoy a stroll through some of the finest art displays found anywhere on the planet.
The Hop-on/Hop-off Bus Tours that can be booked with the New York pass will stop within just a short walk of the Metropolitan Art. Visitors without the New York Pass should take the subway to 86th Street, which is the nearest stop. Services 4, 5 and 6 serve this station.
The Empire State Building is one of the world’s most iconic structures. Located at 350 5th Avenue, the Empire State Building’s observation platform opens daily at 8.00 am and closes at 2.00 am. From here one can see pretty much all of downtown New York’s amazing skyline, an unforgettable view and fantastic photo opportunity! Nearest subway is at 34 Street/Herald Square; subway services N, Q and R serve this station.
At Terminal 4, John F Kennedy Airport, passengers can board the AirTrain, a light railway network that connects the airport with all the JFK terminals and New York City.
The AirTrain links up with the NYC subway service and the Bus Terminal, Grand Central Station and Penn Station on a half hourly service (for more info, please visit www.NYCAirporter.com). It is also possible to arrange for car hire rentals at John F Kennedy Airport.
