New York City

New York—Again and Again!

Get up early to catch a low-fare Bolt Bus near Penn Station and arrive with the whole day ahead of you and money in your pocket. Splurge on admission to the Metropolitan Museum or take your pick of an amazing array of free and cheap activities in one of the world’s most dynamic cities—from new art in Chelsea galleries to window-shopping on Madison Avenue. So close, you can visit again and again!

Things to Do

New to the Big Apple? Put these attractions at the top of your must-see list:

If you’re ready to venture from the well-beaten path:

  • See the hottest new art in the Chelsea galleries—free wine and cheese at Thursday openings.
  • Escape the bustle at the spot Holden Caulfield loved the most—the Pond in Central Park.
  • Discover Harlem culture and creativity at the city’s premiere Latino cultural institution, El Museo del Barrio ($5 for students), or Studio Museum Harlem (free on Sundays).
  • Explore the nation’s largest mausoleum, Grant’s Tomb, or visit the graves of cultural icons Jean Michel Basquiat, Frank Morgan (the Wizard of Oz), and Leonard Bernstein at Green-Wood Cemetery (Brooklyn).
  • Find a one-of-a-kind bargain at one of Manhattan’s weekend flea markets.
