What is the coolest thing in new york?

Rockefeller Center & The Top of the Rock. I mean, King Kong climbed the Empire State Building so clearly that this New York City attraction doesn't surprise anyone. There are day tours, night tours, some that go to the Statue of Liberty, others that fly over the river, either way, a helicopter tour is one of the best things to do in New York. Tango fans gather from 6 to 9 pm in search of a partner to practice and put on a show that is one of the most interesting things to see in New York City.
