You may stay in New York City for a few days or a few weeks, but New York City stays with you forever. Enjoy the native flora planted along the High Line, Manhattan’s new elevated greenway or take a stroll through Brooklyn’s prospect park.
Marvel at the massive balloons in the one-and-only Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade; watch the world go by in a car-free Times Square; bring your family to Madison Square Garden to cheer the Knicks and Rangers; or celebrate the new cultural season at Carnegie Hall, on Broadway and beyond. You could spend a lifetime here and still not see it all. This is New York City.
