Brooklyn Botanical Garden

Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a botanical garden in the borough of Brooklyn, New York City. It was founded in 1910 and is located in Mount Prospect Park in central Brooklyn, adjacent to Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Museum. The 52-acre garden holds over 14,000 taxa of plants and has nearly a million visitors each year.

The Brooklyn Museum

The Brooklyn Museum is an art museum located in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. At 560,000 square feet, the museum is New York City's third largest in physical size and holds an art collection with roughly 1.5 million works.

The New York Transit Museum

The New York Transit Museum is a museum that displays historical artifacts of the New York City Subway, bus, and commuter rail systems in the greater New York City metropolitan region.

Brooklyn Bridge Park

Brooklyn Bridge Park, as its name would suggest, is stationed under the Brooklyn Bridge. It draws thousands of visitors each week who come for awe-inspiring views of Manhattan and idyllic picnic spots along the waterfront. The park is also the site of special events, including the free Movies With a View, kayaking, rowing and fitness classes.

9/11 Memorial & Museum

The National September 11 Memorial and Museum remembers and honors those killed in the terrorist attacks of 9/11/2001 and 2/26/1993, those who risked their lives to save others, and all who demonstrated extraordinary compassion in the aftermath through commemoration, exhibitions and educational programs.

One World Observatory

There are a million things to experience in New York City but only one way to truly see them all. Start by hopping a Sky Pod to the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. There, 102 stories up, find yourself facing New York’s iconic skyline. Walk the three sprawling levels of the Observatory; drop into the café and grab a bite to eat; take an interactive guided tour of the City with the help of a Tour Ambassador; and stop by the One Mix bar.

Statue of Liberty National Monument

The Statue of Liberty is perhaps New York City's most familiar landmark and the easiest one to overlook since it's only accessible by boat. This historic monument has welcomed many generations of hopeful Americans to our shores.

Empire State Building Observatory

Soaring 1,454 feet above Manhattan, the Empire State Building is one of the world’s most famous skyscrapers. Open daily from 8am to 2am, the 86th and 102nd floor observatories offer two of the highest vantage points in the City. Explore the newly-designed entrance featuring a two-story architectural model of the building, images of past celebrity visitors and a red carpet for VIP guests.

Grand Central Terminal

Whether or not train travel is in your plans, Grand Central Terminal deserves to be one of your destinations. Since the building's revitalization 10 years ago, Grand Central has enticed visitors and locals alike, with quick bites and delicacies located in the Grand Central Market, fine cuisine in the Dining Concourse and free arts events in Vanderbilt Hall.

Coney Island

The destination offers thrills, sun, surf and a unique brand of entertainment that will feel worlds away from the rest of the City. Home to the Cyclone (the legendary wooden roller coaster) and Luna Park amusement park, the New York Aquarium, the original Nathan’s Famous, the Brooklyn Cyclones minor league baseball team, a world-renowned boardwalk and, of course, beautiful Atlantic beaches, Coney Island is an absolute must on any New York City itinerary.

Times Square

Flashing neon lights and giant digital billboards. Brilliant Broadway marquees. Costumed characters and musicians. Times Square is big, bright and unforgettable. Its main junction is filled with popular retailers—plus the TKTS discount booth, which offers up to 50 percent off theater tickets.
