What is the New York City Pass?

  • The New York City Pass is presented in the form of a small notebook that allows you to make 6 visits in New York City for a more interesting price than if you had to buy all the admissions.
  • The pass costs about 113 € per person while the total of the 6 visits costs about 160 € at the normal price. The New York City Pass therefore allows you to save a lot of money, especially if there are a lot of people!

What is included in the New York City Pass?

  • A ferry ticket and the entrance to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island OR a cruising onthe Circle Line (including the outboard “The Beast”). The choice is yours. Note that you will benefit from a dedicated, faster line for boarding the ferry for the Statue of Liberty.
  • Entrance to the Empire State Building Observatory, with audio guide included. Note that the City Pass offers you 2 tickets on the same day: one during the day when you want and one evening (between 10pm and closing at 2am from May to August, between 8pm and closing from September to April). A smart way to see the view by day and by night!

  • You can buy your passes well before your departure because the pass is valid for one year from the date of purchase.
  • A good deal: I advise you to always buy your passes before March 1st of each year because, on March 1st, it is the annual increase in the pass… If you leave on August 1st, buy your pass in January or February and you will use your pass in August at the pass price of January.

Reviews of the users

  • Emilie Ponce: “We bought the New York City Pass. It includes the main monuments to see for our 10 days on site. For a longer trip, you have to take the New York Pass 12 days which is more expensive but includes many more visits.
  • Alain Vie: “We liked the New York City Pass and we will use it next time. »
  • Olivier Maillard: “The New York City Pass is practical and covers the mythical places to visit well, but it doesn’t really save time for queues. Disappointing at this level. »
  • Lucie Loulou: “The New York City Pass was everything we wanted to see, but indeed, for queues, it is not a priority everywhere. But well, I was satisfied anyway! »
