Next it’s off to visit the Rockefeller Building with its open-air observation deck, which was opened in 1933 by John D Rockefeller to the amazement of New Yorkers.Designed in homage to ocean liners of the day, it quickly became ‘the’ place to view the city.The ‘Top of the Rock’ is said to be one of the best places to see some fantastic views of the city.

After you come back down to Earth, your drive will take you through the midtown area and a stop will be made the Grand Central Terminal, both a transportation hub and destination in itself for visitors to New York City.

Close by is the 9/11 Memorial, where a stop will be made for you to view the water features that sit within the original footprints of the twin towers.
