New York City Attractions

At Viceroy Central Park, you’re never more than a taxi ride away from the exciting sporting events and architectural marvels that New York City has to offer. Consider visiting the following popular attractions during your hotel visit.

Empire State Building

Built in 1931, the Empire State Building continues to be an iconic part of the Manhattan skyline and a reigning symbol of its identity. A beautiful representation of Art Deco architecture, the Empire State Building is one of the tallest structures in New York City, second only to One World Trade Center that tops it by two stories. The top of the Empire State Building offers an incredible and breathtaking view over the city day and night, via its observation deck 1,050 feet above the city streets. The deck is open to the public, accessed via an exhilarating elevator ride up to the building’s 86th floor. Countless photographs and films have attempted to capture the majesty of this view, the sweeping panorama of rivers, bridges and skyscrapers that can’t be mistaken for any city but New York.

NYC Times Square

If Times Square looks familiar, it should be—it's where the ball drops on New Year's Eve, and is very likely what inspired the saying "Bright lights, big city". Luminous digital billboards rise into the sky and surround Times Square, the heart of New York City, a location from where visitors can explore Midtown easily on foot, especially since the City closed Broadway to traffic from West 42nd through to West 47th Streets. Wander down 42nd Street to find both Broadway and off-Broadway shows to attend, and don't forget that the Theatre District is reknowned for dining, especially the famous Restaurant Row that stretches west from 8th Street on 46th Street.

Statue of Liberty

Since its inception, the Statue of Liberty has stood at our country's gateway, welcoming immigrants coming to this country in search of the American dream. It is recognized across the world as a symbol of America, and a landmark that is a must-see during a visit to New York City. Don't miss a trip to Liberty Island by ferry, where you can access the Statue's pedestal and observation deck—if you’re one of the lucky 3,000 visitors allowed each day. That pass will also give you entry to the Ellis Island Immigration Museum, as well as a ferry ride to the island, where over 12 million immigrants waited to be let into the United States.

Rockefeller Center

This New York hub is a place to stop and watch the world go by—from the ground floor or up at the Top of the Rock's three indoor/outdoor observation decks. The Center is home to an art gallery, the famous statues of Prometheus and Atlas, plenty of retail therapy and some of the City's most celebrated events. From winter ice skating under the Center's enormous and glittering Christmas tree to the Today Show's Summer Concert Series, the Rockefeller Center is always a buzz of activity. If you’re looking for food, don’t miss New York's famous Dean & DeLuca or Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bakery, while shoppers can explore the Metropolitan Museum of Art store and the LEGO store's largest selection of sets available.

Radio City Music Hall

After the stock market crash in 1929, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., RCA and theatrical genius S. L. "Roxy" Rothfael made their dream come true: Radio City Music Hall, a place of beauty offering quality entertainment at prices everyone could afford. Since 1933, over 700 movies have opened here, including National Velvet, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and even recent films such as The Lion King. Ray Charles, BB King, Stevie Wonder and Celine Dion are just a few of the musical stars who have thrilled audiences at the Hall, and it has also been the host to the Grammys, the Tonys, the MTV Video Music Awards and the ESPY Awards. But one of the most treasured events at Radio City Music Hall is the Radio City Christmas Spectacular starring the famously long-legged dancers The Rockettes.

The High Line

In 1999, a 1.34-mile-long historic freight rail line elevated above the streets of Manhattan's West Side was under threat of demolition. Community residents founded the non-profit Friends of the High Line and fought for its preservation and transformation in to an impressive public space for all visitors to enjoy. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues. There are four elevators for visitor access, guided walking tours in every season but winter, and the 23rd Street Lawn, an open green space for picnics, sunbathing and relaxing. Between April and October, the High Line is host to several food vendors, including the Terroir at The Porch, an open-air, full-service café with small plates, beer and wine. Park hours and times allowing access to the lawn vary, so please check their website before visiting.

National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center

It's almost impossible to visit New York and not think of the events of September 11, 2001, where nearly 3,000 people were killed in the terror attacks on the World Trade Center, near Shanksville, PA., and at the Pentagon. The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to those who lost their life in the tragic event, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993. In the footprint of the two towers lie twin reflecting pools, each nearly an acre in size and featuring the largest manmade waterfalls in North America. The names of every person lost in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are stencil-cut into bronze panels edging the Memorial’s pools, allowing visitors to look through the names at the water and even create paper impressions or rubbings of individual names.

New York’s Celebrated Dining and Nightlife

Diversions are as intrinsic to New York City living as morning coffee – walk the streets once the sun goes down and you’ll discover there are almost as many people about as there are during the day, dining out and heading to their favorite jazz club, perhaps, or the most talked-about theater performance of the week.

Whether right on Broadway or somewhere beyond, the world’s finest stage productions take place right in the city. Theater is part of New Yorkers’ lifestyle, so there’s always a long list of options from which to choose – many of which take place right in Midtown Manhattan.

Manhattan offers an incredible array of restaurants, bars and eateries – each with its individual flair for dining. The city’s international influences embrace a range of cuisine, from pizza to saagwala. New York City is home to the restaurants of some of the world’s most famous and popular chefs. From Thomas Keller to Mario Batali, the personalities of New York cuisine make for an exciting adventure in dining experience.

Stemming from its acclaimed cuisine, New York hosts a number of food and wine festivals throughout the year, including the ever-popular NYC Restaurant Week, which happens twice a year in February and July and should not be missed.
