As a New Yorker I must admit, I love New York. I love everything that the city has to offer. That said, I am considering getting the New York CityPass to give as holiday present.
I find this gift one of a kind and very affordable. Any New Yorker and tourists as well would appreciate what the New York CityPass has to offer. The booklet will give a free ticket admission to the following: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the new Greek and Roman Galleries, Museum of Modern Arts (MoMA),the Guggenheim Museum and the American Museum of Natural History. The freebie doesn’t stop there. The NYC CityPass also entitles one to a trip to the magnificent top of the Empire State Building Observatory. What an awesome experience that will be! Plus, a tour of the Manhattan skyline from the water aboard the Circle of Light Sightseeing Cruise is also inclusive. This Cruise is something that I would really wanna experience. I’m a resident of New York, as you very well know, but I haven’t taken that cruise yet. A map and public transportation information and useful tips on the best time to drop by and see each attractions is also bundled in the package.
In time for the season, the CityPass Winter Special will run on December 15 to March 15. This will allow CityPass booklet holder enough time to use the six tickets in the booklet. That’s plenty of time, so everyone will be given the chance to see the atractions at once leisurely pace.
The real one thing that is a sure plus factor about getting the CityPass as a holiday gift is that, it gives the pass holder the privilege to skip the main entrance ticket lines. Giving it as a gift won’t break once bank account as the New York CityPass is sold at 50% off the combined admission price. It costs $65 for adults(compared to $130 if tickets were purchased separately) and $49 for youths (12-17)with an original value of $89.50.
This pocket sized booklet I’ll be giving as holiday present to some on my list, will really get my recipients by surprise. It’s such a unique idea and I must tell you, they’d be glad this is what I picked. You know why? Yeah, they’re residing in New York, but like me, some of the attractions bundled in the CityPass are places they have never been to, not for lack of interest, but lack of time. Now, they’ll have to find the time before it expires, because they will for sure not want the present to get wasted, and they’ll finally get to see these attractions in their own hometown.
