  • Brooklyn Bridge

    City Hall Park New York, NY 10038
    718-802-0603 The prototype is in Cincinnati, Ohio, which is news to most New Yorkers. But despite that depressing bit of information, the Brooklyn Bridge is really a sight to behold. A number of firsts happened because of the Brooklyn Bridge, not the least of which was the incorporation of the five boroughs into the "Greater City of New York" (much to the chagrin of many a Brooklynite). Manhattan entrance: Park Row and Centre Street, across from City Hall Park. Brooklyn entrance: Stairs to Cadman Plaza East and Prospect Street, ramp to Johnson and Adams Streets. More >>

  • Castle Clinton

    Battery Park New York, NY 10004

  • City Hall Park

    City Hall Park

    Park Row New York, NY 10007
    212-NEW-YORK Ah, corruption, greed, scandalsa|here is where it all began. Most people only come take a look at City Hall Park because they are on their way to the Brooklyn Bridge, which is shameful. SHAMEFUL. The north end of the park houses Tweed Court House. A den of corruption in the 1870as, which mirrors some parts of New York today, the Court House cost New York taxpayers almost $12 million to build, well, $4 million. The other 8 went to Tweed. The building directly to the south is City Hall, which is, well, City Hall. More >>

  • 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 >>

  • 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 >>
