Of course the main attraction to this area for most tourists is to admire the awesome Empire State Building. Although it recently lost its title as the worlds tallest building, its position in second place hasn’t stopped it from being city’s most popular tourist attractions. Take the elevator to the top floor to enjoy fantastic views across the city. There is also another very impressive man made structure nearby. The Chrysler Building stands at an enormous 318.92 meters, it started being built in 1928 and construction was completed in 1930. At one point there were more than 3,000 construction workers working on the tower simultaneously. The top of the building has triangle shaped windows and it has a stainless steel crown covered with lights on top which creates a beautiful effect at night time. It is made immediately identifiable by its huge needle sharp, stainless steel spire coming out of the top. Another popular tourist hotspot nearby is the Rockafeller Center. This landmark property consists of twelve art deco buildings with internationally recognisable architectural features. The centre attracts approximately 350,000 visitors every day. Most of the centre is rented out and occupied by office workers, but there is still a multitude of luxury retailers. It’s not just popular with tourists as local New Yorkers love it also for having some of the best restaurants and stores in the city.

If you are after a reasonably priced restaurant that serves great food, we recommend you try authentic American style, Riverpark restaurant. The place has a brilliant ambiance and the dining tables are elegantly set up and well-spaced, also there are seating areas outside should you want to enjoy your meal with a spectacular waterfront view. They offer an extensive menu selection, and if you are a meat eater we suggest you try their scrumptious Berkshire pork chops.

We hope you enjoy your stay in New York!
