one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years.” - Tom Wolfe

Visit New York's cultural landmarks that are synonymous with world-class events and entertainment. Rockefeller Center is headquarters to Radio City Music Hall and the famous Rockettes. Made up by 14 Art Deco buildings developed in the 1930s, Rockefeller Center also houses underground restaurants, shops, theaters and a plaza-level ice-skating rink. The Museum of Modern Art in mid-town Manhattan and the Guggenheim Museum on the upper-east side showcase artists, sculptors and photographers from around the world. Both museums offer daily lectures and tours for people of all ages. It's an inspiring way to spend the day. For a world-class musical experience, visit Carnegie Hall for an evening concert with classical or pop performances.

For bustling excitement, head to Times Square in mid-town Manhattan with its never ending neon signs, billboards and bright lights. Good Morning America on ABC is broadcast every morning from Times Square Studios, so get there early. Times Square is full of great shops, restaurants, nightclubs and 5-star hotels. It's also home to Madison Square Gardens, home to the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks. If you're a sports enthusiast, make sure to get to a game.

Just minutes from Times Square, you can explore the Theater District where you'll find the latest plays and musicals on Broadway. You'll find colorful marquees and billboards that light up the skies of New York nightly. Enjoy your favorite play, then head to one of New York's famous restaurants on Restaurant Row in the heart of the Theater District. World-class restaurants like Sardi's and Carmine's are favorites for theater patrons. You may have to wait on a table, but it's well worth the wait. From the Theater District, you can easily travel to nearby areas like Greenwich Village, Soho, Union Square and Fifth Avenue.
