6 Top Attractions

If you want to see the highlights of New York, enjoy museums and see the city from a different perspective then you best purchase the New York CityPASS. Because the pass is valid for 9 days, you don’t need to worry about rushing around and you can plan everything at your own pace. The pass gives you entrance to 6 attractions, but even if you only visit the Empire State Building, the Top of the Rock, a museum and take one of the boat tours, you will still have saved on the normal rates.

  • The Empire State Building including an audio tour

How does the New York CityPASS work?

You can order the New York CityPASS safely and easily here. You will receive a voucher that you can print out and hand over to the first attraction you visit. You will be given the pass in return. The pass is valid for 9 days from the day of its first use.

With the New York CityPASS you can visit 6 attractions. As mentioned, you will have to choose between visiting the 9/11 Museum or the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. You need to also decide whether you visit the Top of the Rock or go see the Guggenheim Museum. A boat tour is included but you have to make a choice between visiting the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island or taking one of the Circle Line Cruises. The Landmark Cruise, Harbor Lights Cruise, Liberty Cruise, or a ride on The BEAST are included with the pass.

Did you know that New York CityPASS entitles you to a second same-day visit to Empire State Building for free? Visit first during the day and then return for free at night. Second visit is possible in May – August from 22:00 until closing time and in September – April from 20:00 until closing time. Great way to view the city during the day but also admire the beautiful night lights.

Eric’s Tip: I advise everyone to purchase the New York CityPASS if they are visiting New York for the first time. It is cheap, easy to use and because it’s valid for 9 days you can use it during the entire holiday. Making use of the VIP queues saves a lot of time. Especially for the boat tours! The pass is cheaper than buying tickets on the spot – even if you don’t like visiting museums!
