No matter how long you spend in New York City, you probably won’t have enough time to see all the fun the city has to offer. It is therefore wise to make a list in advance of all the sights that you absolutely do not want to miss. We have therefore listed a number of highlights for you.
Car Rental In New York City
New York, the city that never sleeps. In this largest city in America, you will really be amazed and discover something new every day. For many, this melting pot of cultures, nationalities and world-famous sights is the ultimate city. With its famous skyline full of skyscrapers, music stands and of course the impressive Central Park, there is something to do here day and night. Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge that connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn, gaze up at the Statue of Liberty on Ellis Island, and enjoy an amazing view of New York from the observation deck of the Empire State Building.
If you decide to take a big bite out of The Big Apple, consider renting a car. You can rent one of our modern cars at more than fifteen locations and then pick it up at convenient locations such as JFK and La Guardia airports.
According to deluxesurveillance, New York is located in the northeastern United States on the Atlantic Ocean. There are several airports around the city to which you can fly, including JFK, La Guardia and Newark Liberty International Airport. From here you can easily pick up your rental car to start your adventure in this fantastic metropolis. And if you are well prepared on the road, driving will only be easier. We would therefore like to go through a number of rules with you that you must adhere to.
Unlike almost every other place in America, it is not allowed to turn right at a red traffic light. In rare cases this is allowed, but then this will also be clearly indicated. On some important ‘avenues’ you are not allowed to turn left at certain times, but this is also clearly indicated. Pedestrians are wildly adventurous in New York, so keep your eyes open while driving; whether you are driving at a crossing point or not. Do not park in front of a fire hydrant.
New York City has several bridges and tunnels that connect the different neighborhoods. Via the George Washington Bridge you will drive from Fort Lee and New Jersey uptown above Central Park. From here you can reach Cross-Bronx Expressway, the Major Deegan Expressway, the Henry Hudson Parkway or Riverside Drive. Via the Holland Tunnel you drive from Lower Manhattan to Soho and Tribecca. Manhattan Bridge connects Chinatown to the Dumbo neighborhood of Brooklyn, and Roosevelt Island Bridge takes you from Roosevelt Island to Queens.
A nice road to drive on is the West Side Highway. This is an extension of the Henry Hudson Parkway that takes you from West 72nd Street to the southern tip of Manhattan.
Climb The Statue Of Liberty
Hét symbool van Amerika is natuurlijk het 46 meter hoge Vrijheidsbeeld. Dit beeld werd in 1886 door Frankrijk als geschenk gegeven en kijkt statig uit over New York. Het Vrijheidsbeeld is vanaf Battery Park te bereiken. Als u een toegangskaartje koopt, is toegang tot het Ellis Island Immigration Museum hierbij inbegrepen. Vervolgens kunt u 354 treden beklimmen naar de kroon om te genieten van een schitterend uitzicht over New York. Ook heeft u hier de mogelijkheid om een tour te volgen waarin u informatie krijgt over het Vrijheidsbeeld en hoe dit in Amerika is aangekomen. Wilt u het Vrijheidsbeeld alleen fotograferen, dan kan dit vanaf de veerpont tussen Staten Island en Manhattan.
Kijk Uw Ogen Uit Op Time Square
It is the main square of New York where you look up at numerous billboards and neon lights: Time Square. Times Square is really a square that is buzzing with fun and you can also visit Broadway shows here. This is also the place where you can literally shop until you drop: here are major branches of world-famous chains such as M&M Megastore, the clothing chain Forever 21 and the chocolate world of Hershey. Do you want to rest after all the shopping? Then take a seat on the red staircase and look out over the moving crowd. And if you ever want to ring in the New Year with a bang, be sure to visit Time Square on New Year’s Eve to ring in the New Year. By the way, you don’t only have to visit Times Square during the day. The neon lights illuminate it in such a way that it just stays light here.
Stroll Through Central Park
Central Park is one of the most visited parks in the United States. This green park in a concrete city is also one of the most famous parks in the world. As you walk deeper and deeper into the park, the noise of the city disappears until you find yourself in a quiet and green oasis. In addition to the beautiful nature with the New York skyline in the background, you can visit various attractions here: Belvedere Castle, Cleopatra’s Needle, the Strawberry Fields and the Carousel. Every summer you can also visit the Victorian Gardens theme park, which focuses mainly on children between the ages of two and twelve.
New York is a great city where you can easily leave the lively crowd behind in a beautiful park in the middle of the city. If you want to leave the city behind for a while, get into the rental car to explore the beautiful surroundings of the city, such as the smaller cities of Port Jefferson and Huntington.
