NEW YORK CITY – – The biggest city in the United States has plenty to offer, whether it’s attractions, great food and great scenery.
KSN’s Chris Arnold and Lindsay Cobb set out to take in the sights and sounds of New York.
Well there isn’t enough time in one day to see everything, both were able to find some of the premiere things to see in New York City.
First stop was Times Square, a place that is known to be one of the most visited attractions in the world by tourists.
It’s estimated that about five million people visit Times Square every year and about 460,000 every day.
It is also famous for holding the annual ball drop every New Years eve, since 1907.
Another destination KSN visited was Central Park.
The park was built in 1857 on 778 acres of land.
The park has a total of 36 bridges and many areas you can catch a scenic view of the city.
KSN found several tourists in the park, including some from as far away as Holland and Wales.
It’s estimated that Central Park sees over 37 million visitors a year.
Just down the street is the famed Fifth Avenue.
The Trump Tower and many high end shopping venues line each side of the street.
If you go further down Fifth Avenue, you’ll find the Empire State Building.
The 102-story building was built in 1931 and was the tallest building in the United States until the late 1970s.
It cost $40 million to building the structure, which would equate to around $635 million in 2015.
While KSN visited many places, there wasn’t enough time to get to places like Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
