Explore hidden gems such as New York Public Library and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Get some cultural insight at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Statue of Liberty National Monument. There's much more to do: go for a walk through Central Park, take some stellar pictures from Top of the Rock, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, and admire the striking features of Federal Hall.
