After coming back from Deck head towards Atlas, it is the largest sculpture in Rockefeller Center and the most impressive.

Atlas is kneeling towards the famous Saint Patrick’s Cathedral. Famous Cathedral is open to the public, so walk inside if you have the time. The dimensions will stun you, as will the stained glass work.

Now head toward the Grand Central Terminal, which was the largest train terminal ever built. Glorious constellations are painted on the ceiling of the marbled main hall.

If you exit Grand Central on the Lexington Avenue side, you can visit the Art Deco lobby of one of New York’s most famous and iconic skyscrapers – the Chrysler Building. A 125-foot stainless steel needle erected last minute to claim the title of world’s tallest a month after 40 Wall Street was completed.

Now using the NYC Subway head towards the Brooklyn Bridge. Walk over the famous 1 mile suspension bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn. This marvelous piece of architecture is more than 130 years old.

After that head towards the Wall Street. Historically known as the center of New York's financial district. Head west for one more block along Wall Street to reach Trinity Church. The church you see today was built in 1846 and is considered one of the best examples of Neo Gothic architecture in the United States.
