Kids will enjoy Central Park and American Museum of Natural History. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, admire the striking features of Empire State Building, admire all the interesting features of The High Line, and contemplate the long history of 9/11 Memorial.
