New York City at night – it’s a magical experience! Experience night views of Times Square, 5th Avenue, Grand Central Station, and more! The first stop is one of the most fascinating attractions in New York City – the High Line Park and the Chelsea Market for a quick dinner bite. The stop includes a 15-minute walk on the elevated, linear park that was originally a railway dating back to the industrial days of the west side of Manhattan.
Off to Brooklyn to make a stop at Fulton Ferry Landing, located at the base of Brooklyn Bridge, for magnificent views of NYC skyline at night! Back on the bus and passing along, we’ll see the Sports Center at Chelsea Piers, the West Village, the Financial District, the most traditional side of Chinatown, and the three bridges along the East River – Brooklyn Bridge, Williamsburg Bridge, and Manhattan Bridge.
Additional sites and neighborhoods you’ll also see from the comfort of your bus include Tribeca, where celebrities such as Robert De Niro and Taylor Swift live, Greenwich Village, the bohemian neighborhood known for great nightlife, the iconic Macy’s Herald Square, where the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade concludes each year, the scenic Bryant Park, Washington Square Park, and finally, the New York Library (shown in movies such as “Ghostbusters,” “Sex and the City,” and “The Day After Tomorrow.”).
