Your list of things to see and do now includes Ripley's Believe it or Not! Times Square, Hard Rock Cafe NYC, macy's herald square, and other attractions. Next up on the itinerary: make a trip to Central Park, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, and get engrossed in the history at Ellis Island.

To see where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City trip planner.
