  • Statue of Liberty/Liberty Park

    Battery Park New York, NY 10004
    866-statue4 The view is nice from the top (25 windows in the crown symbolize "heavenas rays shining on earth"), but thereas really no reason to spend a whole afternoon, climbing up in the dark. The 130-year old statue, which was designed in part by Gustave Eiffel, is 151 feet high (and 220 tons) If you're not keen on barfy boat rides ( with tourists), the view of the statue from Battery Park is excellent. Hours: Daily 8:30am-6pm (except Christmas) More >>

  • The United Nations

    The United Nations

    46th & 1st Ave. New York, NY 10017
    212-963-4475 While the U.N. does get to boast some of the ugliest buildings ever seen, it also gets to boast the most fascinating tour. Tours are in 17 languages, there's great artwork, and technically, if you are on U.N. soil you are on international soil, which is really cool, for some reason. Of course, visits cannot be conducted when the General Assembly is in session, but since that ever useful body only tends to meet once a year for a month, or something like that, scheduling around it is safe. Hours: March-December Daily 9am-5pm; January & February Mon-Fri 9am-5pm. More >>

Morganas former apartment, check out 40 Wall, the building that competed with the Chrysler building for tallest. For a map and some history, visit the downtown alliance website. More >>

  • Williamsburg Bridge

    Williamsburg Bridge

    Delancey & Essex St. New York, NY 10002

    The Williamsburg Bridge is often referred to as "an engineeras bridge," which is really not the concern here. The Williamsburg Bridge dumps unsuspecting innocents deep into the heart of hipsterville, as Williamsburg is the new Lower East Side, which was the new East Village. Thatas not to say that the bridge does not offer its own spectacular views of midtown and the Upper East Side, neither of which can be seen from the Brooklyn Bridge or the Manhattan Bridge. Manhattan Entrance: Median of Delancey Street at Clinton Street Brooklyn Entrance: There are two entrances in Brooklyn: 1) Corner of South 5th Street & South 5th Place (South 5th Place is between Driggs Avenue and Roebling Street). 2) Bedford Avenue between South 5th and South 6th Streets.

  • World Trade Center Site

    Church St. btwn Liberty & Vesey St. New York, NY 10048
    N/A Everyone should go at least once. And everyone should know what is happening to this place, but don't bug New Yorkers about it. Itas too hard to talk about. Be respectful. Be quiet. Donat talk on your cell phones. Have a beer in a local joint nearby that may have to shut down due to lack of revenue. And donat buy those tacky-as-hell cards and books. More >>
