Things to do in New York City

Top 10 To Do: 
  1. Times Square: It has it all. You can find first class lodging, all varieties of dining, entertainment, as well as tours of all parts of the city, shopping and nightlife in this exciting, vibrant and historic landmark in New York City.

  3. Rockefeller Center: Having been built to meet the needs of the people, it has been a favorite spot for both New Yorkers and tourists. 
  4. Central Park: This 843-acre oasis offers a refuge from the hustle and bustle of city life. A stroll along the Mall, a rowboat ride on the Lake, or a game of softball are just a taste of what you'll find in Central Park.
  5. Metropolitan Museum of Art: New York City's grand museum! Journeying through the art of mankind can be a overwhelming yet joyous experience.

  7. Rose  Center for Earth & Space: The brand new, state-of-the-art center will take you to from the inner workings of our planet to the outer limits of the galaxy.
  8. Staten Island Ferry: It is run by the City of New York for one pragmatic reason: To transport Staten Islanders to and from Manhattan. Yet, the 5 mile, 25 minute ride also provides a majestic view of New York Harbor and a no-hassle, even romantic, boat ride, for free! One guide book calls it "One of the worlds greatest (and shortest) water voyages."
  9. Bronx Zoo/Wildlife Conservation Park: The country's largest urban zoo. Exhibits include: Tiger Mountain, JungleWorld, Himalayan Highlands, World of Birds, African Plains, Wild Asia, Baboon Reserve, and the 6.5 acre Congo Gorilla Forest.
  10. Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum: Perched on the flight deck of the U.S.S. Intrepid, a fighter jet looks ready to take off! The monstrous aircraft carrier now houses the largest museum devoted to the armed forces and the space program.
Top 5 Things To See:
  1. Empire State Building: "The Cathedral of the Skies," as it has been called, identifies NYC more than any other feature in this landmark filled city.
  2. Statue of Liberty: Next to the flag, it's America's most famous symbol for freedom. Standing 151 feet above New York Harbor since 1886, the ferry brings you to her feet on Liberty Island.
  3. Ground Zero: It's a name and place we are all familiar with just as we are the events that took place on September 11, 2001 - a day that will forever be remembered in the hearts of all Americans.
  4. United Nations: Behind the 191 waving flags representing the member countries stands the buildings of United Nations who attempts to maintain peace, protect human rights and promote development throughout the world.
  5. Brooklyn Bridge: Ranks as one of the greatest engineering feats of the 19th century and remains one of New York's most popular and well known landmarks.
Best Time of Year to Visit:  Ask four different New Yorkers and get four different  answers. Winter transforms the city into a magic wonderland. Spring is filled with many parades.  Summer brings many free outdoor events.  Fall bursts with world-class music and Broadway shows. So, NYC is great in every season.
