Central Park

One of the great pleasures New Yorkers and tourists enjoy is getting away from it all in Central Park. Stretching 51 blocks between 59th and 110th streets, this 843 area, green rectangle has served its city well since 1859. From famous statues to castles, there is so much to see within this pastoral landmark.

Radio City Music Hall Tour

A tour round the building will explain the history of the building and show the beautiful art deco interiors. Your will learn the secrets of the Great Stage, one of the largest indoor performance stages in the world; the stage’s hydraulic system, and their impressive new technological features.

Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Metropolitan Museum of Art houses more than three million works of art from all over the world across history.

It is almost impossible to see everything in one day: the two million square feet too much for even the most organised visitor. Instead of wandering through all the galleries, visiting one of the themed exhibitions is a good plan. There is also a roof top garden overlooking Central Park, which is open in the summer.
