Top 10 Things to Do in NYC



Description:

New York is full of things to do, but not all of them are created equal. Here are 10 essential spots you should make a point to check off your list, especially if you're a first-time visitor to the city, or haven't been here in a while. Central Park, a sprawling oasis of green, offers a welcome respite from the city's crowded streets. Art lovers might head first to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and MoMA, while die-hard shoppers might choose Rockefeller Center. If the Top of the Rock offers a great bird's eye view of the city, so does the iconic Empire State Building, a little further downtown. Bustling Times Square can be a little overwhelming, but it's a must-see, especially if you're on your way to take in a Broadway show. Downtown, the WTC site is home to a moving tribute to the victims of 9/11. A walk across the majestic Brooklyn Bridge offers some of the best views of the city skyline, while the Statue of Liberty is only a ferry ride away. Finally, the Bronx is home to one of the city's most peaceful and beautiful outdoor spots--the New York Botanical Garden.
