It all starts with mythical buildings, too!

The Flatiron is not the tallest building in Manhattan. But it is a strong symbol of New York dynamics. Entrance, for the moment, is not permitted for the general public. Otherwise, very close to this building is Madison Square. From Madison Square, you continue your tour by heading towards the Empire State Building. The apartment building is half a mile from Madison Square. And it offers a very nice panoramic view that visitors really appreciate. A detour to the Empire State Building is simply a must in Manhattan, or even for a trip to America.



You're still heading south, and you'll come across the New York Public Library not far away. Admission is free and it is constantly teeming with people.

Not far from there, an astonishing glass cube fascinates the curious, the intellectuals and the followers of Apple products: it is the Apple Store. Open 24 hours a day, 24 days a week, the cube is teeming with enthusiasts at the end of the afternoon. The penultimate stop on your 7th Avenue journey is the Plaza Hotel, a mythical building full of history too.


It is while continuing this route that you will arrive in Central Park. Central Park is located at the southern end of 5th Avenue. No need for a lot of presentation because we all know it: more than 30 million visitors per year, more than 400 ha in area, quiet paths for hiking and enough space to get some fresh air or to organize a picnic -nique ...
