What is it you want to do this summer? Don’t worry—New York City has it. Sports fans can always catch a game, whether it’s the Yankees, Mets, Red Bulls, or a US Open Tennis match. And those looking to just soak up the sights can see it all from a rooftop bar or by taking a boat cruise. Just remember to pace yourself—it’s not possible to do it all in a day.
From Battery Park to Washington Heights, NYC hotel guests have 320 square miles of the Big Apple at their fingertips. When it comes to things to do and see in New York's five boroughs, from time-tested icons like Lady Liberty to newer additions like the High Line elevated park, New York has something in store for everyone.
Times Square and Broadway musicals are always big headliners, and the newest Broadway theatre is the Marquis Theatre in the Marriott Marquis Hotel. Elsewhere in New York City, established museums like The Met, MoMA and Guggenheim are must-sees, but don’t miss the Museum of the Moving Image, American Crafts Museum and The Cloisters.
Shopping is an Olympic event in NYC. Hotel guests can shop for essentials or must-haves on Fifth Avenue or Madison Avenue. If shopping doesn’t appeal, don’t miss the chance to gain a broader perspective from the observation level of Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Plaza or see what King Kong saw from the top of the iconic Empire State Building.
The individual neighborhoods make this city feel like many places at once. Amble along the streets of Little Italy or Chinatown to discover great ethnic restaurants, duck into trendy galleries in SoHo, or catch a performance of the Public Theater’s Shakespeare in the Park, and you’ll feel like a native of this world-class city.
