Explore New York.

Popular culture loves New York; it’s a diverse, dynamic, eclectic city that many have grown up watching on the big screen or in their favorite TV shows. While the real NYC isn’t exactly like Hollywood makes it out to be, it’s still a must-visit destination, home to a magnetic arts and culture scene and loyal sports base. Whether you’re visiting for business or fun, there’s no such thing as a dull moment in New York.

First things first—getting around. The best ways to get around in New York are either the subway or walking. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is the largest public transit authority in the United States and can take you just about anywhere in New York. You will need a MetroCard to use it, which you can purchase at any subway station.

Once you’re equipped with transportation, take a trip to Manhattan and experience the heart of the city, home to flashy Times Square, dizzying views from the Empire State Building, and the Broadway theaters. Stroll through iconic Central Park, where countless scenes from films and TV shows were shot. Take a boat ride to Liberty Island and meet Lady Liberty herself. Discover world-class art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Cross the Brooklyn Bridge for a host of new attractions. Visit the historic Coney Island beachfront amusement park for concerts and movie nights. Take a tour of the Brooklyn Historical Society and see what major moments in American history occurred there. Get an in-depth look at the first trolleys and streetcars at the New York Transit Museum.

It’s impossible to cover all the sights and attractions that await you in New York. Let this sample of possibilities inspire you to experience the best that New York has to offer.
