East Coast Memorial

Located in Battery Park at the very southern tip of Manhattan, this World War II memorial features eight 19-foot (5.8-meter) granite pillars engraved with the names of over 4600 U.S. servicemen who either died or were reported missing overseas in the western Atlantic Ocean during Word War II. The memorial's main attraction is a large bronze eagle which rests on top of a black granite slab in between the two rows of pillars. The memorial neighbors the historic Fort Clinton.

Saint Thomas Church

This church was founded in 1823, and the impressive cathedral was built in the French Gothic style right in the heart of what is now Midtown. The contrast between the architecture of this beautiful building and the skyscrapers surrounding it is breathtaking. The church offers regular Episcopal services, but the highlight of any visit is the renowned St. Thomas Choir.


You'd be hard pressed to find another place quite like the Mmuseumm anywhere. This tiny little museum is basically the size of an elevator shaft, exhibiting an array of random objects, many of which will fit in with a seasonal "theme." Here, in this quirky space, you can see interesting exhibits such as 'last meal receipts' and personal possessions of people in history, as well as the other changing artifacts.

New York Helicopter

New York Helicopter will offer you a panoramic view of New York city from high up in the sky. You are in safe hands of their certified professional pilots as you fly around the city's skyline. Tourists can choose from three of their tours; 'Central Park Tour', 'Liberty Tour' and 'Grand Tour'. Sign up for their Grand Tour which combines the other two plans and will offer you marvelous sights of the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, The Empire State Building, Wall Street and much more. You can also charter their helicopters for a private travel or a transfer to and from the airport. Check the website for pricing and duration of the tours.

Cleopatra's Needle

This obelisk is one of three taken from Egypt that has been re-erected outside of its original pediment, the other two are in Paris and London. This particular obelisk was erected in 1881 behind the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Central Park and its age is somewhere between 3600 and 3400 years old. It is inscribed with hieroglyphs that pay homage to Ramses II and Thutmosis III along with other gods in the Ancient Egyptian pantheon. In fact, the moniker attributed to the great Queen Cleopatra is a misnomer as she was never associated with any of the obelisks, it was simply her fame that provided New Yorkers an apt name.

Light Dispelling Darkness Fountain

Punctuating the southern landscape of Roosevelt Park is a spectacular masterpiece called Light Dispelling Darkness. This work of art by ceramic artist, Waylande Gregory was created in 1937. Sculpted from terracotta, the fountain features intricately-carved figures and objects like horses, artists and local factory workers. It is the representation of the artist's definition of a world reigned by education and a scientific temper, and the defeat of social evils and natural calamities. Ponder at this spot for your own interpretation.
