After a drive through the Times Square area, the first stop is at Central Park West and 72nd Street, at the Dakota Building (former home of John Lennon). The stop includes a short guided walk into Central Park to visit the Strawberry Fields with the Imagine mosaic dedicated to John Lennon, as well as the views of other sites in the area such as the luxury condominiums that numerous celebrities call home. We'll also drive by Central Park Zoo, the famous Plaza Hotel, and Carnegie Hall. The second stop on the tour is Rockefeller Center, for views of St. Patrick's Cathedral, the location of the ice skating rink and Christmas Tree, and NBC's Today Show set.
The third stop is Madison Square Park - the original location of Madison Square Garden Arena. This area provides spectacular views of dramatic architecture featured in numerous books and films: the Flatiron Building (Godzilla, Spider-Man), the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Tower (The Runaway Skyscraper, Futurama), and the Empire State Building (King Kong, Independence Day). The tour continues with a drive through some of the iconic NYC's neighborhoods, such as Greenwich Village, Soho, Chinatown, and the Financial District. En route to the fourth stop, we drive by Wall Street for views of the New York Stock Exchange, Federal Hall (the location of the first Capitol Building of the United States), Trinity Church, and a drive-by the famous Charging Bull sculpture on Broadway.
The fourth stop is the World Trade Center, as we visit the 9/11 Memorial. The tour does not include entry into the 9/11 Museum, but visitors can walk the grounds of the Memorial, visit the waterfalls of "Reflecting Absence," (the footprints of where the original twin towers stood), and see the Survivor Tree that stood up to the destruction of 9/11. Around 1 pm, we'll stop for a quick lunch break at the Fulton 55 Market. The fifth stop is a boat ride on the Staten Island Ferry to experience magnificent views of the Manhattan and Brooklyn skyline! Please note that in the off-season, between Jan 1 - March 31, in lieu of boat cruise, guests will (weather permitting) visit Pier 17 for a photo opp of the Brooklyn Bridge and Robert F Wagner Park in Battery Park for views of the Statue of Liberty from Manhattan. The boat docks back at Pier 15 in Downtown Manhattan, where we board our bus to continue the tour, as we drive back to our original departure point on 7th Avenue in the Times Square area.
