Things to do in Manhattan

The Statue of Liberty, the financial district, Central Park... All the most iconic landmarks of New York seem to be in the Manhattan borough - yes, even the Statue of Liberty! There is so much to explore that you could spend there weeks.

Iconic landmarks

Iconic landmarks abound, starting with the Statue of Liberty, accessible by a ferry departing from the Southern tip. In Lower Manhattan, find your way amidst the towers and find the One World Observatory and the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, both built on the former location of the Twin Towers destroyed in the 9.11 attacks. The view from the Observatory is stunning. Head Midtown to admire the Empire State Building, perhaps the most iconic building of New York. In the same area, you will find the Chrysler Building, the Rockefeller Center and the Flatiron Building. Make sure to enter the Grand Central Terminal, featured in countless movies.

Unique neighborhoods

Manhattan is a patchwork of neighborhoods. Observe how each one is so unique, from the office towers of the financial district to the Asian shops and restaurants of China Town, the chic shopping streets of SoHo, the trendy nightlife of the East Village, the artsy vibe of Greenwich, the modern high rises and the frenzy of Midtown, the lights of Broadway, the transforming Hell's Kitchen, the oh-so-chic Upper East Side, the cultural Upper West Side, and the Afro-American culture of Harlem.

Museums

Located in Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Arts is not to be missed, both for its architecture and its splendid collection from all over the world. Modern art enthusiasts will absolutely want to visit the MoMA and the Guggenheim Museum. For a deep dive in the past, head to the American Museum of Natural History. Those particularly interested in the history of New York City will also consider the New-York Historical Society, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Tenement Museum.

Walks and parks

Visiting Central Park is an absolute must. This 843-acre park located at the heart of Manhattan is a formidable playground and you can easily spend a full day there. Further South, the High Line is a unique park set on a former elevated freight rail line over the streets of the Chelsea neighborhood. Its 1.45-mile walk provides a perfect observatory point to the local streets, and you can also have a tasty bite or attend trendy cultural events. Roosevelt Island and Governors Island, two islands forming parts of the Manhattan borough, are accessible by public ferry. Enjoy their quiet, natural environments with splendid views of New York and many events organized all year long.

Activities

Just walking in the streets of Manhattan is an incredible experience. But there are also tons of activities you can plan during your stay! For instance, why not enter the beautiful Morgan's Library, visit the abandoned railway station of City Hall, or attend one of the famous stand-up comedy shows? And don't forget there is one more thing for which Manhattan is celebrated: its unrivaled food scene!
