Find your favourite spot in the Big Apple. Will it be one of New York’s overlooked gems like tranquil Governor’s Island, the innovative High Line park or the farmers’ markets held in Union Square? Or perhaps you’ll want to tick off one of the city’s most famous landmarks, the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty? Try to fit in something a little different, whether it be a visit to New York Fashion Week, a free taping of The Today Show, or a concert at the Lincoln Center or Carnegie Hall.
