The Brooklyn Bridge: Admire the skyline as you walk from Manhattan to
Brooklyn (we recommend traveling from Brooklyn to Manhattan for truly
stellar views) over the iconic Brooklyn Bridge on the pedestrian pathway.
Take in the historical architecture of the bridge's high Gothic arches.
9/11 Memorial: When New York City was devastated by terrorist attacks on
September 11, 2001, the skyline and Americans would never be the same.
Over a decade later, the new Freedom Tower resides as the tallest building in
the Western Hemisphere, with a memorial for the World Trade Center's twin
towers built next to it. The 9/11 Memorial has cascading reflecting pools on
top of where the 110-story buildings once stood with the names of those lost
in the attacks. The memorial is emotional yet shows the resilience of the city
and the country itself.
Corona Park (Flushing Meadows, Queens): Best known as the location
for a little tennis match known as the US Open, Flushing Meadows Corona
Park is New York Metropolitan's fourth-largest park. It was the sight of
two world fairs and cinematically known for the alien fight scene in Men
In Black. Other Flushing Meadows-Corona Park attractions include the
Queens Botanical Garden, Queens Theater, Queens Zoo, and the New York
Hall of Science.
