Your plan includes some of its best attractions: go for a walk through Central Park, take a stroll through Times Square, explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and explore the galleries of 9/11 Memorial.

For where to stay, more things to do, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City online tour planner .
