After many flights, I finally found myself getting a connection through New York. I ensured that my layover was long enough to get out of the airport and was able to get out to explore the city.
If you happen to be in New York for a few hours, here are some places to go and things to do:
Empire State Building
Lucky for me, I arrived right before opening. I was able to get up to the top within 5 minutes of booking my ticket.
A shoppers paradise! Everything opens at 8 am and there is more than enough stores to keep you busy.
City Sightseeing Cruise
This is great if you only have a few hours and want to see where the World Trade Centers stood, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the Statue of Liberty.
There is so much to see and do in New York. As short as this trip was, it’s still pretty fabulous to see some of the main sights in only a day. Next up? Amsterdam.
