There are parts of New York City that look better at night than they do during the day. You don’t get the full effect of Times Square unless you see it at night.Β  And the Manhattan skyline looks amazing all lit up.

During our recent visit to the Big Apple, we spent a lot more time out at night than we have before and we were able to find things to do in New York that really shouldn’t be missed.

If you are heading to New York City any time soon make sure you don’t miss wandering around Times Square, looking over Manhattan from Top of the Rock and the Manhattan skyline from the Brooklyn side – All at night.

If you are worried about safety when walking around the city at night, you really don’t have to be; There are thousands of people walking around on every road – After all, it is the city that never sleeps.
