The scene that says New York! Take a walk through the square that is lined with massive digital billboards, theaters for Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, people peddling art and jewelry on the street, and street performers showcasing their unique trade. Visitors can also shop in flagship locations of such stores as Toys “R” Us or grab a pre- or post- theater meal along Restaurant Row or simply sit on the red steps and take in the hustle and bustle – a definite treat for the five senses.

Statue of Liberty
The gleaming beacon for generations of immigrants seeking a better life in America cannot be missed. Nearby, the Ellis Island Immigration Museum served as the first port of entry in the United States for approximately 12 million immigrants.
The new Yankee Stadium replaced the original (opened in 1928), known as “The House that Ruth Built,” in 2009. In its inaugural season, the team won the 27th World Series title. Catch a game or take a guided tour, which includes stops at the club house/batting cage, dug out, Monument Park, and the New York Yankees Museum.
The Bronx Zoo
The Bronx Zoo is the largest urban wildlife preserve in the United States, covering 265 acres. It is open seven days a week and offers pay-what-you-wish admission every Wednesday. The Zoo is home to more than 5,000 animals representing more than 600 species.
Upon its completion in 1883, the bridge was the world’s longest suspension bridge – 5,898 foot. It is best to leisurely stroll across its elevated pedestrian walkway although the bridge is visible from the shores of both the Manhattan-borough and Brooklyn-borough.
9 11 Memorial & Museum
The Memorial Plaza, covering eight acre, features waterfalls flowing into two large reflecting pools, in the towers’ footprints, with the names of the men, women, and children who lost their lives inscribed in bronze parapets that surround the pools. With over 400 trees planted, the site offers an elegiac sanctuary for commemoration and quiet contemplation. The museum is located beneath the Plaza, houses exhibitions with artifacts, pictures, videos, and accounts from people.
Featuring thousands of performances each year, the sprawling 16.3-acre complex is home to 11 organizations, including Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Opera, and the New York City Ballet.
