New York City is known for museums, nightlife, shopping, historic sites, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: go for a walk through Central Park, take in panoramic vistas at Top of the Rock Observation Deck, make a trip to Grand central terminal, and take in the views from Brooklyn Bridge.
