What's Covered? Get to Know New York City: Iconic landmarks, stunning architecture, renowned food, and stellar shopping--New York City has it all, and you can get it in a New York minute. First time visitors should head to Lower Manhattan to tour heavy-duty landmarks like Wall Street and Battery Park. Board a ferry to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty or pay your respects at the Ground Zero construction site. Stop in Chinatown and Little Italy to chow down on noodles, pastries, and other goodies.
Midtown is the place to take in the lights of Times Square and a Broadway show, wander around the green goodness of Central Park, and take in prime landmarks like Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Terminal, the Chrysler building, and the New York Public Library.
Visitor's looking to explore NYC like a local should head to the Lower East Side and explore the large variety of dining options in the East Village. Hit SoHo, NoLita, and TriBeCa to have your pick of sidewalk merchants and tiny boutiques. Greenwich Village is the playground for wealthy celebs and socialites while the Meatpacking District nearby has evolved into a swanky clubbing and late-night scene for the young.
The Upper East Side offers the Museum Mile and Madison Avenue's hot boutiques while the Upper West Side is home to Columbia students and Lincoln Center. Further uptown, Harlem offers a hotbed of African-American and Hispanic-American culture.
And don't forget about the outer boroughs. Brooklyn is the home of Coney Island, Prospect Park, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Staten Island harbors a commuter-transporting ferry and Queens has pockets of Greek, Indian, and Dominican communities, as well as Citi Field. The Bronx is famous for Yankee Stadium, the New York Botanical Garden, and the Bronx Zoo. East Village or Harlem, Brooklyn or the Bronx, wherever you head, your itinerary will be a voyage of discovery.
