Take a stroll in New York’s famous Central Park or do it up in a vintage horse and buggy. Central Park is a wonderful experience anytime. During the summer months, weather and time permitting, you can see theatrical shows such as Shakespeare In The Park or a concert of two. We are happy to announce that the Tavern on the Green restaurant has re-opened and highly suggest you take in this wonderful dining experience.
While in New York you have a choice of many of the top museums in the world. The Metropolitan Museum of Art has more than 2 million works of art representing 5,000 years of history but be prepared and bring your walking shoes! Your trip to the Big Apple must include a walk around Times Square and become part of the New York experience. Feel the pulse of the city with all the billboards flashing local TV broadcasts and the hustle and bustle of the crowd.
Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island: One of the best known iconic landmarks in the world is the Statue of Liberty in New York. This is accessible via ferry from Battery Park. Head down there early or later in the day and go say hello to Lady Liberty.
American Museum of Natural History: If you are a history buff, then this is a must see as there are over 45 exhibition halls to wander through.
Grand Central Railroad Terminal: Take a trip back in time and be transported back to New York in the 1930’s and how it used to be. Besides a world famous landmark and railroad station, dozens of classic movies have been filmed right here.
Brooklyn Bridge: Weather permitting one of the coolest things to do is to take a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. There is a boardwalk elevated above the roadway, shared by pedestrians, in line skaters and a few cyclists. It takes about 40 minutes and certainly have your camera ready for a view of a lifetime.

Other interesting tourist spots to consider:
Lincoln Center is the place to be if opera is your love. Let us reserve lunch or dinner in the world famous Russian Tea Room close by. Performing arts is what it’s all about and at Lincoln Center on any given day there is always some live production being performed in several of the 23 theatres. As well as the world famous Juilliard School and New York City Ballet, Lincoln Center is one of the most concentrated places for the performing arts in the US. There is even a film center located within. The diamond of the 23 is the Metropolitan Opera House where you will see the famous Marc Chagall paintings which can be seen from outside.
Greenwich Village: There is an old saying “When in Rome….”. Well when in New York there is nothing like Greenwich Village or, as you will learn, The Village! Start your day in Washington Square Park built in the 1800s and stroll west to an area we recommend called, funnily enough, the West Village. Here you’ll find charming cafes, maybe catch a glimpse of a celebrity or two and the many shopping opportunities in quiet peaceful streets.
Museum of Modern Art: If you’re into Picasso or Van Gogh come check another of our top choices to see on your trip.
With New York being so diverse in its cultures, history and attractions we could write three books on things to do and see while you’re visiting the Big Apple. Please contact us and one of our specialists will customize a perfect package for you to experience.
