You need to also decide whether you visit the Top of the Rock or go see the Guggenheim Museum. A boat tour is included but you have to make a choice between visiting the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island or taking one of the Circle Line Cruises. The Landmark Cruise, Harbor Lights Cruise, Liberty Cruise and a ride on The BEAST are included with the pass.

Did you know that New York CityPASS entitles you to a second same-day visit to Empire State Building for free? Visit first during the day and then return for free at night. The second visit is possible in May-August from 10:00 p.m. until closing time andin September – April from 08:00 p.m. until closing time. Great way to view the city during the day but also admire the beautiful night lights.

Eric’s Tip: I advise everyone to purchase the New York CityPASS if they are visiting New York for the first time. It is cheap, easy to use and because it’s valid for 9 days you can use it during the entire holiday. Making use of the VIP queues saves a lot of time. Especially for the boat tours. The pass is cheaper than buying tickets on the spot – even if you don’t like visiting museums!
