World Trade Center

Visitors enjoy the breathtaking view of New York from the 102nd-floor One World Observatory. And they are deeply moved by the two 911 memorials: waterfalls (ground level) and museum (underground).

Bronx Zoo

More than 600 wildlife species from around the world are featured in interesting indoor and outdoor exhibits.

Central Park

This vast urban oasis in the middle of Manhattan provides a peaceful retreat, stage performances, and more.


The narrow, serpentine streets of Chinatown burst with restaurants and exotic markets.

Grand Central station

The spirt of the cavernous, architecturally stunning main hall pulsates during rush hours.

Lincoln Center at night

The sight of the cultural building complex surrounding the fountain square is exhilarating at night.
