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. 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.

The billboards in Times Square make it seem like its day light 24 hours a day. Its very bright and very colorful.
This is the first time we viewed Manhattan at night from across the bridge. Its well worth the walk over the Brooklyn Bridge for the stunning view.
I am a huge musical theater buff so I love these billboards in Times Square. Its not quite the boring billboards you see on the highway as you drive to work every day is it!
This shot of Manhattan was taken from the Observation Deck (Top of the Rock) of the Rockefeller Center. The large colorful building is the Empire State Building.
The famous cherub at the front of the Rockefeller Center – Also a regular in the credits of one of our favorite shows, 30 Rock.
Another shot from ‘above’ at the Observation Deck. Manhattan looks amazing at night!
You would think it was Christmas when you see all the lights in the trees around the Rockefeller Center at night. Its stunning.

... In Elie Wiesel’s memoir, Night, holocaust survivor Eliezer suffers from one of the most painful events in human history: the Jewish Holocaust. As a result of his suffering, he is radically changed from a devout Jew, to a devout cynic. His religious fervor is lost, and little hope is provided for its salvation. The definition of holocaust is mass destruction; this is usually associated with the mass destruction of human life. Another definition, although horribly ironic, is a burnt offering.

He states, “By day I studied the Talmud and by night I would run to the synagogue to weep over the destruction of the Temple” (3). He asks his father to find him a master that could guide him in the studies of Kabbalah. Kabbalah is a form of Jewish mysticism. His father does not help him find a master, and tells Eliezer that there are no Kabbalists in Sighet. But nevertheless, he succeeds in finding a master on his own, Moishe the Beadle. Moishe the Beadle is a poor man, yet an insightful person. “Man comes closer to God through the questions he asks Him,” he liked to say. “Man asks and God replies.
