With views to rival those of the Empire State Building, Rockefeller’s multi-floor observation deck is 70 floors high. A thrilling Plexiglass screen installation shows the construction workers hanging on the high beams, with a chance for you to ‘walk’ across one too, far above the city streets. Exhibits include the history and a model of the building.
Her position atop an 89ft pedestal makes the statue’s presence a grand and captivating one – approaching Liberty Island on the ferry from Battery Park never fails to enthrall. The statue was presented as a gift to the US from France in 1886 and the 152ft sculpture was to be the first glimpse of America for millions of immigrants, a symbol of American ideals.
Built in 1883 to connect Brooklyn with Manhattan across the East River, this colossal bridge conveys the intense ambition and optimism of that era. Built in limestone and granite, its towers rise 270 feet above the water and feature dramatic, neo-Gothic arches. The world’s first steel-wire suspension bridge, it has been designated a National Historic Landmark.
Walk over the Brooklyn Bridge to Dumbo for a real authentic New York experience. With its rumbling streets and canvernous spaces carved out of former factories, DUMBO (an acronym for ‘Down Under the Manhatten Bridge Overpass’) exudes a cool, urban grandeur that sets it apart.
America’s first living-history museum dedicated to the life of immigrants, aiming to promote tolerance and awareness of the variety of migrant experiences on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. At the ‘gateway to America’, the partially restored 1863 tenement building runs guided tours focusing on specific character stories related to work and family life.
The Broadway Theatre District has all the buzz and glitz that you’d expect from America’s answer to the West End. Rounding off the day with dinner and a Broadway show is a typical New York past time and it’s an exciting way for student’s to feel part of the city’s twilight activity.
Documenting September 11, 2001, the museum examines the implications of the events and commemorates the nearly 3,000 men, women and children who died on 9/11 and in the 1993 World Trade Centre bombing. Using multimedia displays, narratives, archives and artefacts, the museum presents powerful accounts of the monumental struggles faced by a nation and the legacy of that day.
The One World Observatory is located within the One World Trade Center providing unmatched views stretching across Manhattan to New Jersey. Groups will be able to learn about the history of the Trade Center in New York, its history and construction.
