Rockefeller Center is a must, especially during Christmastime! Home for the city’s yearly Christmas tree and ice skating rink, this spot is filled and surrounded with countless shops and restaurants to choose from.

St. Patrick’s Cathedral

This stunning Gothic style Roman Catholic cathedral stands out boldly against the New York skyline. Located almost directly across the street from Rockefeller Center, this structure is worth stopping by for a walk through. There’s nothing else in the city like it!

(10 minute walk – 89 East 42 St)
Grand Central Terminal

This rapid train terminal is a staple in New York’s history and exposure in TV and film. Stop by to admire the beautiful constellation ceiling, grab a bite or hop on a train! There are also a lot of hidden secrets around, my favorite being the Whispering Arch that sends your soft messages over a corridor. There’s lots to be unveiled here!

(3 minute walk – 405 Lexington Ave)
Chrysler Building

Another standout in the New York Skyline is the Chrysler Building. With its Art Deco era architecture, this structure is striking to look at, especially after dark. Stop by for a photo op, or at least a better understanding of just how clean Miss Hannigan wanted her orphanage to look in Annie!
