Sightseeing

Endless New York City Attractions... It all starts at the Park 79!

As in all the world’s major cities, visitors often begin the Big Apple experience with hop-on, hop-off coach tours. Good idea! New York City Attractions are non-ending, with the very-famous sites and the secret-places beckoning, and not just in Manhattan. All five boroughs of New York hold amazing treasures for every age and taste. Coach tours and professional walking tours are ideal; harbor sails and helicopter rides are terrific, but solo sightseeing—starting with Park 79 Hotel’s wonderful location—can be memorable. Each season presents special highlights for your memory book.
