Day 1 - New York


The point of entry for many daily commuters, Grand Central Station is also a noteworthy spot for visitors to check out; if you’re hungry, grab a bite in the downstairs food court, or just gawk at the ceilings in the main concourse. The Chrysler Building is an iconic NYC skyscraper--check it out from the outside, but for a bird’s eye view of the city head a bit further downtown and upstairs to the observation deck of the Empire State Building. Complete your first day with a trip down to the Flatiron District, named for the distinctive triangular-shaped building at the intersection of 23rd Street, Fifth Avenue, and Broadway.

Day 2 - New York


Early mornings are different at South Street Seaport since the famous Fulton Fish Market relocated to the Bronx, but it’s still a scenic spot to soak up some New York history and kick off the second day of this trip. From there you can get some great views of Brooklyn and the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, then head west to the hub of the Financial District and check out the New York Stock Exchange. After catching a glimpse of the Woolworth Building, another beautiful old building located downtown, go see the ultimate NYC icon--The Statue of Liberty--up close by catching one of the ferries that leave Battery Park every half-hour beginning at 8:30am.
