Is a New York Day Pass Worth It if You’re a Night Owl?
Do you enjoy spending a good night out and are wondering whether or not you should get an NYC day pass? The answer is yes (and always will be), and here are three reasons why.
You read that right. From the moment you purchase your NYC day pass, you have 24 hours to use it. Are you not a morning person? That’s all right. You get to sleep in all morning and still use your pass in the afternoon. Whether you are visiting New York City for the first time or the fiftieth time, the 24-hour NYC day pass lets you access all corners of Manhattan and Brooklyn. You will be able to see the city from a different perspective while riding on a double decker bus. The 24-hour pass includes four tours. You get two hop on hop off tours and two non-stop tours. On top of that, you get a free two-hour bike rental with any bike rental purchase. You can also get free admission to the Museum of the City of New York. The hop on hop off tours will bring you to downtown and uptown Manhattan. The non-stop tours will bring you to Brooklyn and drive you through midtown and downtown Manhattan at night.
You can also experience a night tour. Your NYC day pass offers a sightseeing tour of the city when the sun goes down. For one hour and thirty minutes, you will get to experience the city of lights and colors. Buses run from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. and bring you from Times Square all the way down Fifth Avenue. It will pass the Empire State Building, which is illuminated at night by a system that displays 16 million colors. It will then continue through Greenwich Village all the way to Little Italy and Chinatown. Afterward, you will head to Brooklyn to witness an incredible view of the Manhattan skyline at night. On your way back, you will go to Gramercy Park and East Village. You will pass the United Nations as well as the Chrysler Building and Grand Central Terminal.
Hop on Hop off Tours
If you are a night owl and are worried you won’t be able to catch a bus on time during the day, don’t worry. The hop on hop off bus tours run all day. The downtown tour runs from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The uptown tour runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. That’s plenty of time to wake up fashionably late, grab a croissant (or a slice of New York Pizza), and find your closest bus station. The downtown tour starts in Times Square. It passes must-see attractions such as the Empire State Building, the Rockefeller Center, Radio Music Hall, the 9/11 Memorial, Chinatown, Greenwich Village, Little Italy, and more. The uptown bus tour will bring you to Central Park, Harlem, the Jewish Museum, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Frick Collection. You can also see Columbia University, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
