After various trips and spending over a year in total in New York City, I’ve gotten to know the city pretty well. Of course I did all the main attractions, like the Empire State Building and visiting the Statue of Liberty, but here are 15 lesser known New York City attractions I discovered!

6 Reasons To Visit The Marriott Marquis New York

Marriott Marquis New York

The Marriott Marquis New York hotel is located on possibly the best spot of New York City: the very middle of Time Square! It offers some great perks worth checking out which are also available to non-guests that I would like to share here.

Visit Toronto: Canada’s Green and Clean NYC

Visit Toronto

Toronto is kind of like the greener and cleaner version of New York City. It has many of the same famous aspects, such as the diversity, entertainment, business, shopping and waterfront, but in a calm and relaxed way. Most iconic is probably the 553m (1.815 ft) tall CN Tower, but the many nice neighborhoods, beautiful beaches and parks cannot be missed either!

The Other 9/11 Memorial in New York: St. Paul’s Chapel

The National 9/11 Memorial in New York is beautiful. It consists of two pools with huge waterfalls on the sides, placed in the footprints of the Twin Towers. The names of all 2.983 victims of the horrific attack are inscribed on the edges. It is a place to be quiet and remember those who lost their lives that day. But next to remembering the victims, I think it’s also important to remember the incredible job done by first responders and volunteers during the aftermath. To get a better understanding of this, I would recommend to visit St. Paul’s Chapel as well.
