- Central Park - Enjoy a stroll through one of New York’s greatest landmarks, Central Park! Central Park is one of the urban wonders of the world, a green oasis in the great concrete, high-rise landscape of New York City. It is so naturally part of the Manhattan environment that many people may not realize it is entirely man-made.
- Rockefeller Center - A Streamline Moderne masterpiece, Rockefeller Center is one of New York's central gathering spots for visitors and New Yorkers alike. A prime example of the city's skyscraper spirit and historic sense of optimism, it was erected mainly in the 1930s, when the city was deep in the Depression as well as its most passionate Art Deco phase. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1988, it's now the world's largest privately owned business-and-entertainment center, with 18 buildings on 21 acres.
- Times Square / Broadway Theaters - Most of the Broadway theaters are around Times Square, so plan your visit before or after the show you're going to see. For your pre-theater meal, walk 2 blocks west to Ninth Avenue where you'll find a number of relatively inexpensive, good restaurants. If you are with the kids, the Ferris wheel in the Toys "R" Us store makes a visit to Times Square worthwhile. Best selling shows currently include: Wicked, Phantom of the Opera, Jersey Boy’s, Marry Poppins, Lion King and much much more! For additional show information, please visit: broadway.com.
- Empire State Building - Empire State Building glows every night, bathed in colored floodlights to commemorate events of significance – red, white, and blue for Independence Day; green for St. Patrick's Day; red, black, and green for Martin Luther King Day; blue and white for Hanukkah; even lavender and white for Gay Pride Day (you can find a complete lighting schedule online). The familiar silver spire can be seen from all over the city. The best views, and what keeps the nearly three million visitors coming every year, are the ones from the 86th- and 102nd-floor observatories. The citywide panorama is magnificent. One surprise is the flurry of rooftop activity, an aspect of city life that thrives unnoticed from our everyday sidewalk vantage point. The higher observation deck is glass-enclosed and cramped.
- Shopping - Located walking distance to New York's legendary Fifth Avenue boutiques, indulge in some New York shopping at the original Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, Chanel, Fendi, and many more.
- Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) - The newer, larger MoMA, after a 2-year renovation, is almost twice the space of the original. The renovation, designed by Yoshio Taniguchi, highlights space and light, with open rooms, high ceilings, and gardens – a beautiful work of architecture and a perfect complement to the art within. This is where you'll find van Gogh's Starry Night, Cezanne's Bather, Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, and the great sculpture by Rodin, Monument to Balzac.
