There is so much to see and do in New York City, it’s difficult to make an itinerary for each day without missing some important sites. Besides those listed above, some of the most popular Must See Attractions NYC has to offer are Yankee Stadium. The Museum of Modern Art, the Staten Island Ferry, and Ellis Island, a national landmark where immigrants from Hungary, England, Scotland, Ireland, Czechoslovakia, Poland and many other countries around the world arrived searching for the new life and freedom the United States offered them.

For the Children
The Children’s Museum of Manhattan offers five floors where children can enjoy the day. Over 350,000 people visit the museum every year. It’s a fun place where children can learn about world cultures, and enjoy daily workshops. Parents and children also make use of the outreach centers which include head start centers, homeless shelters, and even hospitals. Don’t forget about taking the children to the city’s zoos and aquariums.
It’s wise for visitors to check out all the sites online to find out what they offer, their prices and times to visit. Many people find it great to ride the subways and buses, or just sit on benches where they can watch all the people walking by. Creating an itinerary of sites to see each day will lessen the stress of figuring out what to do and how to get there. Knowing what the prices are and downloading special apps onto iPhones is also wise.
