Credit it to the rich and colorful history of one of the world’s greatest city where most of the memorable historical events happened and the most interesting architectural edifices were built.
In fact, a day tour of New York City is not even enough to cover all of the nicest and most interesting tourist spots and theatrical arenas.
First in the list of things to do in New York is of course visiting the Empire State Building and re-enact the scenes from famous romantic movies such as An Affair to Remember and Sleepless in Seattle. Or relax at Central Park – taking in a little fresh air or simply watching busy people rushing by.
If you’re in the mood for a little business after visiting Central Park, head on down to the New York Stock Exchange and witness how the world’s premier stockbrokers do their thing.
If you are looking for some magnificent and interesting art exhibits, you can always go to the New York Public Library. Get awed by one of the greatest public library ever built at the NYPL.

If you haven’t had enough of museums and exhibits, there are still some other major museums in the city. Some of these include The Whitney Museum of American Art and The Museum of American Folk Art (entrance to this museum is free).
Out for a bargain hunt? Then go to famous Sixth Avenue Antiques Market or the famous flea market at Columbus Avenue and 76th street.
