How Does The New York Pass Work?

The New York Pass is a ‘smart card’ – like a credit card with a computer chip inside – which allows you completely cash free entry to over 90 New York tourist attractions.

It’s a bit like an all-inclusive holiday – once you’ve bought your New York Pass you don’t have to pay to get into any of the attractions covered by the pass and the more sights you see, the more money you save.

When in New York, simply show the attendant at a New York Pass attraction your card, they will swipe it through a special machine and you will be allowed entry.

ACTIVATING THE NEW YORK PASS
The smart card records when and where you first use your Pass, as well as how long the Pass will remain valid. This means your Pass is activated the moment that you first use it at an attraction or service.

Your New York Pass is then valid for the number of days that you’ve purchased – be it 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 or 10 days. It is important to note that a ‘day’ is based on a calendar day, not a 24 hour period.

VALIDITY OF THE NEW YORK PASS
The New York Pass is valid for use on consecutive days only. You can visit each attraction just once with the New York Pass. At the end of your validity period, the pass will expire and will no longer allow access to attractions. If, for example, you used a three day pass for the first time on Monday, your pass will cease working at the end of Wednesday, regardless of how often you have used it in between.

FAST TRACK ENTRY
As well as free entry, the New York Pass allows you to skip long lines at some of the busiest tourist attractions. Simply look for the New York Pass signs and show the attendant your New York Pass – they will swipe your card through the New York Pass machine and you will be allowed entrance – more >>

BOOKING TOURS IN ADVANCE
The most popular tours often sell out in advance, but once you purchased your New York Pass online, you can secure your place with your online confirmation number. There are 17 Tours you can book in advance with New York Pass

FREE GUIDEBOOK
Every order comes with a 200 page pocket guidebook, which details all attractions and special offers available for Pass holders. If you choose the delivery option it will be delivered with your Passes. Customers collecting their Passes will also receive their free guidebooks at the collection point.

Do you need a break after this exhausting day of hopping around in New York, well click here to rest in a Hotel, and continue tomorrow!

The city that never sleeps – New York

0
New York The City That Never Sleeps

New York, the Big Apple, IS America, and probably the greatest city in the world. Enriched with an extensive system of public and private universities, training colleges, medical schools, business schools and art schools, it is truly one of the great educational cities.

Set at the mouth of the great Hudson River, New York is the largest urban area of America. It is a town where the unusual is commonplace, the dramatic expected. New York is a series of neighbourhoods that are the real melting pot of America – a city of diversity where people have come from all over the world to build their lives. This is reflected in the neighbourhood names. Conjure with the ideas of the Bronx, Hell’s Kitchen, Spanish Harlem, Little Italy and Chinatown.

Culture and Action

Art and artists are a way of life in New York, from the small studios of Greenwich Village to the magic of Broadway, providing everything from musicals to Shakespeare starring top-rank actors and actresses. We can also throw in the world-famous Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Ballet, the New York Philharmonic, and uncountable numbers of music and theatre venues. Museums do not come better than the Guggenheim, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art and the American Museum of Natural History. And if you do need the best research library there is, the New York Public Library is waiting for you with ten million books and ten million manuscripts, including George Washington’s farewell address drafted in his own hand.

If this becomes all too highbrow, there are clubs, bars and restaurants, as well as world-class sports facilities to keep you busy, and more than enough parks and open spaces if you just want to relax.

Where is the financial capital of the world? Right here. The financial district of Manhattan is home to some of the greatest modern architecture in the world – and I guess we don’t need to tell you about Wall Street!

Manhattan

Manhattan is the economic and cultural heart of the city; dominated by skyscrapers, bright lights and a pace of life to match, inhabited by the strange and the rich in equal measure. Shop ‘til you drop in the magical stores of Fifth Avenue, smell the money being made day and night on Wall Street, discover the Orient in China Town, or hang out with the artists, writers and musicians in Greenwich Village and SoHo. All of this is shoe-horned into only 57 square kilometers along with 1.5 million people.
New York is the only city in the USA with a large public-university system. There is a wide range of specialized colleges – art and design, fashion, performing arts, printing, cooking and maritime trades. The private universities also provide special courses such as journalism at Columbia, medicine at Fordham, fine art studies at New York and biomedicine at Rockefeller.
There are, however, plenty of open spaces in the city. Some 50,000 acres of green island parks are scattered through the boroughs, from small triangles to the 25,000 acres of beaches, parkland and marshes of the national recreation area on Staten Island. New Yorkers really use their parks and beaches – a million people turn out on summer weekends at Coney Island in Brooklyn. Rockaway Beach on the southern shore of Long Island finds three quarters of a million swimmers in its Atlantic Ocean.
For animal lovers, there is a taste of the wild in the zoos of the Bronx, Central Park, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, and botanical gardens in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens.
New York is also the home town of some of the most famous sports teams in America – the Jets and the Giants at football, the Knicks at basketball, the Islanders and Rangers at hockey, and the Yankees and the Mets at baseball.

Climate and Surroundings

The average monthly temperature is 12ºC but it gets hot in summer, and there can be a lot of snow in winter that makes it ideal for winter sports. You can easily have a day at the beach or if you want to get out of town, New York has three international airports, 100,000 miles of highway throughout the state, and 4,500 miles of rail track.

It is easy to explore this historic part of America, from the Appalachians and the Catskills to the Great Lakes, or follow the Hudson River to Albany. There is plenty of opportunity for outdoor pursuits.
As Frank Sinatra sang ‘ If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere’.
See you in the big Apple!
