Fly from Ponce to New York City

By taking a flight from Mercedita Airport (PSE) to New York City, you leave Puerto Rico's tropical settings and look forward to urban sightseeing in the United States. From the Empire State Building in Midtown to the Metropolitan Museum of Art near Central Park, Manhattan is home to some of New York's most visited landmarks. Puerto Rico Highway 1 is the most convenient route to take when driving to PSE. As you fly from Ponce to New York City, the trip should take about four hours.


Observation decks in the Empire State Building and One World Trade Center provide sweeping views of New York, but there are other ways to enjoy aerial views of the Big Apple. The Roosevelt Island Tramway offers a ride above the East River, and helicopter tours are available at South Street Seaport. After seeing Museum Mile from a distance, visit this district's art galleries inside the Solomon Guggenheim Museum, Frick Collection and Neue Galerie. Finish the day in Manhattan with a Broadway show in Times Square.
