InterContinental New York Times Square
Start your day like a New Yorker with a brisk walk, run or bicycle ride (rentals are available) in Central Park. Look for signs of spring at Strawberry Fields; in the blossoming cherry trees around the Reservoir; or venture to the center of the park to discover the famed sculptures and iconic bridges. Once you've worked up an appetite, enjoy long-time breakfast favorite Sarabeth's on Central Park South. Next mix a little movie magic with a Fifth Avenue shopping experience--after all, what goes with breakfast like Tiffany’s? FAO Schwartz, the toy store made famous by Tom Hanks in the movie Big, the flagship Apple store and the Plaza Hotel are on your way.
Spend your afternoon exploring Brooklyn! Venture out to Grand Army Plaza (an easy trip by the 2/3 subway or by taxi) to see the impressive entrance to Prospect Park - on the weekends you can catch the Greenmarket there. Make your way in to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and see the early Spring blooms including Hanami - the annual Cherry Blossom festival going on throughout April. Then check out the elegant, modern architecture of the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library before you hit the Brooklyn Museum to view the fascinating site-specific sculptures in Gravity & Grace: Monumental Works by El Anatsui. Afterwards you can relax with a cup of hot chocolate or wine at Lincoln Station (9409 Lincoln Place at Washington) or have a bite to eat at nearby gastro-pub The Vanderbilt (570 Vanderbilt Avenue at Bergen Street).
A harbor cruise under the stars such as the Bateaux Dinner Cruise will offer you New York’s world-renowned skyline views, separated only by glass windows and water.

Upon docking, a chauffeured luxury car will whisk you away to Jimmy Rooftop Bar that spoils you with great cocktails, amazing music and a fantastic view over Lower Manhattan. The concierge is always happy to assist you in helping make the arrangements for the perfect day everyday.
