New York Pass

New York Pass is a “smart card” which allows users to take advantage of a cash free entry to over 80 iconic New York tourist attractions, including walking tours, museums, parks, gardens, boats, bike rentals, and more, all for one low price once activated. Every pass comes with a complimentary 200 page guidebook with directions to every location.


How New York Pass Works

The smart card records when and where you first use your pass, as well as how long the pass will remain valid. This means your pass is activated the moment that you first use it at an attraction or service. A “day” is based on a calendar day, not a 24-hour period. The New York Pass is valid for use on consecutive days only. Users can visit each attraction just once with the pass. At the end of the validity period, the pass will expire and will no longer allow access to attractions. For example, if visitors use a three-day pass for the first time on Monday, the pass will cease working at the end of Wednesday, regardless of how often it was used in between. New York Pass will also soon introduce a new, free app, complete with information and photographs of over 80 NYC attractions, as well as practical tips to make the best of the visit.

Additional Benefits

New York Pass entitles users to discounts at participating restaurants, retailers and celebrated Broadway shows simply by showing your pass, including Bloomingdales, Heartland Brewery and Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark Broadway musical. Skip-The-Line VIP Privileges
