Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You've added Rockefeller Park, Grand Central Terminal, Times Square, and other attractions to your itinerary. Kick off your visit on the 7th (Tue): take in the pleasant sights at Central Park and then take a stroll through Times Square. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the landmark architecture of Grand Central Terminal, stop by M&M'S World New York, then stop by The LEGO Store, then stroll through Rockefeller Park, and finally take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your New York City trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
