Things To Do in NYC

The best time to view Manhattan’s icons would definitely be after the sun sets and the lights go on. Fuelled by competition and a sprinkle of audacity, NYC is still producing one of mankind’s most remarkable skyline.

The contrast of experiences by day and night tours means that you should consider taking both the day and night of the same tours, which the same place will be seen differently by the light of the sun, and how it will be lit up at the evening tours.

If you are thinking of saving money by purchasing a tourist pass, make sure to keep in mind that the passes also include night bus, boat and helicopter tours.
