New York City

New York City-there's no place quite like it.

Every season features something new and exciting to see and do in all five boroughs of New York City. Year-round, see breathtaking sights from the City's many observatories. The newest, One World Observatory, is a three-story observatory atop One World Trade Center, the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. Explore the NYC's abundance of museums, including the Whitney Museum of American Art in its new digs in the Meatpacking District and the totally refurbished Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration.  Before or after departing for Ellis Island from Lower Manhattan, take a spin on the all-new SeaGlass Carousel. Included in all the development of Lower Manhattan are major new retail and dining centers such as Brookfield Place with gorgeous waterfront views from its terrace. For sports and entertainment, Barclays Center in Downtown Brooklyn is now home to the National Hockey League's New York Islanders, the Brooklyn Nets basketball team plus a host of rock concerts. Yankee Stadium now brings New York City Football Club's professional soccer to the Bronx when the New York Yankees are not in play. Staten Island has new attractions too: the Staten Island Museum at Snug Harbor and the National Lighthouse Museum near the St. George ferry terminal. And combine trending art and food in Queens-NYC's most culturally diverse borough. Take the 7 train to Long Island City, Astoria, Flushing or Jackson Heights to unearth an unending supply of global cuisines and to visit cultural centers such as the open-air Socrates Sculpture Park, contemporary art museum MoMA PS1 and the sculptural Noguchi Museum.

NYC's unique event highlights include NYC Restaurant Week® for specially priced lunch and dinner at top restaurants, two-for-one theater tickets during Broadway Week and Off-Broadway Week, plus the Tribeca Film Festival, US Open Tennis, CMJ Music Marathon and more. NYC's major free events include Lunar New Year Parade and Festival, Macy's Fourth of July Fireworks extravaganza and Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Easter Bonnet Parade, HBO Film Festival, SummerStage and Shakespeare in the Park, NYC Pride Week, the Village Halloween Parade and many TV-show celebrity tapings.

So bring your sense of adventure for all the citywide experiences you'll have, your appetite for all the international cuisines you'll savor and a spare suitcase for all the shopping you'll want to do.
