New York City Video Tour Posted by on Dec 31, 2014 in Uncategorized

Check out the “Streets, Beats & Eats” of America’s most famous city – New York – in this short travel video. See famous landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty and Central Park, check out some cool artwork on the High Line, munch on New York classics like bagels and pastrami sandwiches, and catch plenty of local music in the process.


“New York is the biggest and most famous city in the United States. Let’s take a short video tour of the Big Apple. The Statue of Liberty is an important symbol of the city and the country, and you may even see people dressing like her on the street.

For a great New York style breakfast, head to Murray’s Bagels. This place is very popular for a good reason. Try a classic bagel with lox and cream cheese.

Head to the High Line, a public park built on a disused section of a railroad track. Here, you can see lots of interesting artwork. There are also some places to stop and have a rest or a drink. It’s a nice place for a walk, as you’re away from all the traffic of New York’s busy roads. Along the way, you may spot some interesting statues as well.

Believe it or not, New York is actually a great city for walking. On one walk, you may see a former president’s house, as well as tons of incredible architecture, such as the Flatirons Building and the Supreme Court.

There are also plenty of great parks in the city, including Washington Square park. Here you’ll find the Washington Arch, which was built to commemorate the centennial of George Washington’s inauguration. It’s a popular place to hangout, and you’ll often find musicians playing here. Sit and relax by the fountain, or even go for a run in it. Other green spaces in the area include Gramercy Park and Madison Square Park.

The most famous park in the city is definitely Central Park. It’s huge, so you might want to take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage or get a pedicab. There really is music everywhere you go in New York. In the park, you can find a memorial to John Lennon. There’s also an Alice in Wonderland statue. It’s not just music going on in the park, though…

For lunch, head to one of the countless delis in the city, where you can try a massive pastrami sandwich with some fries and pickles on the side. Save room for dessert if you can.

In the evening, you can head to Broadway to see a show, such as “Chicago” or “The Book of Mormon.” You could also go to Radio City Music Hall, or tour the NBC studios. The famous TV station has its headquarters here at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, or 30 Rock of short. Go inside and head to the Top of the Rock. On the way, you can learn some history of the station and the city. Ride the coolest elevator ever to the top. Some nights they even have a bar and live music up here, so grab a drink and find a spot to watch the band. Make sure you head outside to take in the view before you go.

Wind down your night with another New York classic – a dirty water dog in Times Square. This is one of the most famous places in the city, and millions of people come here every year on New Year’s Eve.”
