Great Updates to the New York Pass Starting Summer 2011

New York Pass, the all-inclusive one-stop tourist pass for the most active of New York City tourists announced recently that there will be several upgrades to its offerings beginning in the summer of 2011. This begins with the addition of seven new attractions that are now included in the price of the NY Pass. These attractions are:

  • Grand Central Terminal Audio Tour
  • The Skyscraper Museum
  • Museum of American Finance
  • NYC Mob Tours
  • Wall St. Walks: History of Wall St. Tour
  • Museum of Jewish Heritage
  • Slavery and Underground Railroad Tour

New York Pass has long been the premiere choice for active tourists who wish to see as much of New York as possible in a 1, 2, 3, or 7 day period at a discounted rate. The addition of these seven new attractions goes a long way towards helping this pass compete with the more tour-heavy New York Explorer Pass, offered by Smart Destinations.

In addition to these attractions, NYP has unrolled additional discounts offered to pass holders as well. This includes a care kit included free with a $75 purchase at Sunglass Hut, a 50% discount on your first drink at the Brooklyn Winery (the tour is also included in the pass) and a $10 discount off of the Real Bronx Tours.

Finally, New York Pass was also excited to enhance its relationship with Uncle Sam’s Tour company. Previously, pass holders were allowed to participate in one of these walking tours. However, the Summer 2011 updated pass will include all of the following tours:

  • Grand Central Terminal Audio Tour(Self Guided)
  • Food on Foot Tours Harlem One-Stop Cultural Walking Tours
  • Slavery and Underground Railroad Tour
  • On Location Tours: Central Park TV and Movie Sites Tour
  • Wall St. Walks: History of Wall St. Tour
  • NYC Mob Tours(or take their bus tour)

Some of these tours require preregistration, however, so it is important to call ahead to make sure that you can get a slot.

New York Pass is available in 1, 2, 3 and 7 day formats at a cost ranging from $80-$200 for adults and $55-$160 for children ages 3-12. It can be pre-purchased online before your trip to New York and comes with a complimentary 176-page guidebook to help you plan your New York getaway.
