There’s nothing like a summer night in The Big Apple! We have personally experienced some great ways to see New York City in the evening, and now is the perfect time of year to enjoy a warm summer night in Manhattan.

New York City Harbor Lights Cruise– Get up close and personal with the sparkling skies of NYC on a nighttime cruise with Circle Line. Learn about the famous landmarks of the city while sailing along the Hudson River. This is your chance to get an Instagram worthy photo of the Statue of Liberty! The cruise departs daily at 7:00pm and is $40 for adults and $33 for children. The Martz pickup/drop off location at New York City Port Authority is just a short cab or Uber ride from the cruise departure location at Pier 83 in Midtown.

Top of the Rock- The Top of the Rock, also known as “Top of Rockefeller Center” is a must see for one of the most memorable views of the New York City skyline. Tickets for TOR are $40 for adults and $26 for children/seniors and can be purchased online or at Rockefeller Center. One of the more popular times is to see the sun set, so it is advised to purchase tickets for that time slot a few days ahead. TOR even offers the “Sun and Stars” ticket, which allows you to go up during the day and at night. Prepare to soar up 70 floors for a breathtaking open air view of the skyline.

Rooftop Lounge Experience- NYC is notorious for its rooftop bar scene in the summer, and this particular tour makes it easy for you to visit the best ones in the city. The New York Rooftop Lounge Experience provides you transportation to rooftop bars such as 230 Fifth, Gansevoort Park Rooftop, Market Café and many more. Even better, the $67 tour also includes three drinks and any cover charges for the bars. The four hour tour finishes in Times Square at 11pm, close enough to Port Authority where you can even catch a Martz bus home on our last schedule at 12:30am. Take advantage of this great experience this summer!

Gray Line Night Tour- You’ve seen the double- decker buses throughout the city, but have you experienced one? Get a whole new perspective of NYC from the top of a Gray Line New York double-decker bus. See the Flatiron Building, Union Square, The Empire State Building and many more skyscrapers along the way. You will also drive across the Brooklyn Bridge to take in a panoramic view of the city. Tours leave from 777 8th Avenue between 47th & 48th Streets, also close to the Martz location in Port Authority. Tickets are $50 for adults and $40 for children.

There are many great ways to see New York City in the evening. Take a Martz as your first step to your memorable NYC experiences.
