Do & See
Some people live in New York from the day they are born to the day they die without ever leaving the city. Even these people don't have enough time to see and do everything this metropolis has to offer. World-class museums, famous monuments, huge, lush parks, top art and entertainment, from Broadway musicals to daring street performances... the list could go on forever. It is a dynamic city, besides, one that changes and transforms on a daily basis, spawning all kinds of new, exciting, cutting-edge events and activities. The following are some of the most famous and beloved sights and attractions, but be always on the lookout. Blink and you might miss something unrepeatable. And be sure to pay attention to operating hours, as many museums have certain hours of free admission once a week.

Central Park

This iconic 843-acre park was planned to give New Yorkers a respite from the hustle and bustle of the big city, and the designers did such a good job that when relaxing on one of the huge lawns, or picnicking by a lake, or strolling along its miles of biking and walking paths, it's often hard to believe you're right in the middle of Manhattan. The park also contains world-class museums and hosts countless activities and concerts, especially in the summer months.

9/11 Tribute Center

The 9/11 Tribute Center tells the devastating story of the tragic events that occurred in New York on September 11, 2001. Many of the volunteer guides who work at the Center were directly involved in the events - some lost family members, while others helped deal with the mortifying aftermath of the attacks. Hearing their first-hand narratives is an emotionally overwhelming experience that is made possible by the project of the September 11th Families Association.

A real eye-opener attraction that will change the way you see yourself when it comes to biology, lifestyles, and our physical and mental wellbeing.
