Best of New York City

     New York City, the “Big Apple,” is certainly one of the world’s greatest urban centers. It contains so many attractions that a single visit is never enough. Travelers come back to the city often to truly experience its special atmosphere. New York’s many museums are among the world’s best; nothing compares to live theater on Broadway; shopping and the fashion scene in New York is also some of the finest available.

    Let’s begin with the incredible museums. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the “Top 5” art museums in the world,

   MOMA, the Museum of Modern Art, is equally prestigious, with wonderful paintings like Van Gogh’s “Starry Night.”

   The Museum of Natural History is also one of the best of its type.
