Let’s take a look at 2014’s top ten tourist destinations in NYC, all of which can be seen during a High Quality Tour package or customized VIP tour.
The Statue of Liberty. Over 2 million people visited the iconic Lady Liberty last year, although probably not all of them climbed the 377 steps from the main lobby to the crown platform.
The Empire State Building. This other iconic New York landmark was visited by 4.3 million people last year. Visitors to the 102-story building can choose from two observatories: one on the 86th floor accessible by high-speed elevators, and another on the 102nd floor, where visitors can see for up to 80 miles on a clear day.
Central Park. The huge green space in the center of Manhattan was a destination for over 40 million visitors in 2014. Both lifelong New Yorkers and visitors alike can enjoy famous landmarks in the park like Strawberry Fields and the Central Park Zoo.
Metropolitan Museum of Art. Located on the outskirts of Central Park, The Met was a destination for 6.2 million visitors in 2014. Founded in 1870, the museum hosts over 2 million works of art.
National September 11 Memorial and Museum. Since its opening in 2013, the Memorial and Museum at Ground Zero has been a popular destination. Nearly 5.4 million people visited the memorial last year.
Coney Island. A playground for city dwellers and tourists alike, Coney Island’s amusement rides and beach attracted 4 million visitors last year.
Museum of Modern Art. Over 3 million people came to see the works of art at this famous museum in Midtown Manhattan. MoMa features works from Matisse, Picasso, van Gogh, and many others.
High Line. The final phase of this unique park built on a disused elevated railway was completed in 2014, and over 4.8 million people came to walk through it and enjoy the view of Manhattan.
Prospect Park. This 585-acre park in Brooklyn was an extremely popular attraction in 2014, hosting 10 million visitors.
