One World Observatory: Popularly known as the OWO, most visitors favor its downtown location, and you get excellent views of the harbor and Statue of Liberty.

The Edge: At 1100 feet in the air, it's the tallest outdoor sky deck in the hemisphere, and you can view the Big Apple in a state-of-the-art way through its glass floor and tilted exterior windows. It's an incredible experience to be surrounded by only glass and the sky.

Central Park

Whether you want to lounge on the lawn during summers or wish to do frolicking in December snow, Central Park offers beautiful places to click pictures year-round. The 800-acre park is tough to navigate and has many spots to enjoy your day at the park.

9/11 Memorial

9/11 Memorial

New York City has felt the impacts of September 11th more than any other city in America. This 9/11 Memorial reflects the healing and growth of a city following the tragic day in United States history. The two memorial pools have been placed in the footprints of the North and South Towers. Known as the Reflecting Absence, a cascade of water pours from the rim, creating a peaceful atmosphere. No matter where you stand, the bottom center of the pool cannot be seen, which is meant to symbolize the eternal impact of loss.

Between the pools is the entrance and top Floor of the 9/11 Museum, most of which is underground, and surrounding the memorial is a series of skyscrapers that now make up the World Trade Center. All the exhibits are intricately detailed and take you step-by-step through the day's events.

Times Square

Times Square

Many people say this commercial stretch from West 42nd to West 47th is artless, overpriced, and congested, but some say it's colorful, exciting, and lively. NYC locals may advise you to advise it, but you cannot leave this city without catching a glimpse of the neon lights. It's always recommended to visit this chaotic square after dark to check out the marquee displays.

You can quickly check out Times Square after a Broadway show, and the biggest draw is the annual New Year's Eve ball drop. You can plan to take a trip at this time of the year and see the famous Waterford crystal ball descend 77 feet from a pole on the One Times Square building.
