Visiting the Big Apple is something that hopefully every American would get to do at least once in their lifetime. Given the travel connections through there, it’s easy to get to, and some wind up just having a day or so there to spend, especially if they have a long layover. If your time is short, learn 3 fun things in NYC:
1) Visit the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty: The buildings of Manhattan seem like an impressive view from anywhere you can see the island. However, there’s no view like there is from the top of the Empire State Building. The view from the top of the Statue of Liberty is not quite as breathtaking, but it’s gorgeous in its own way given the history of the island and especially if you see the sun coming down over the water.
2) Spend some time in Little Italy or Chinatown: For all the views, shopping, and entertainment, the eating and cultural diversity of New York City is in full effect in ethnic or nationality-centered neighborhoods like these. Both areas have multiple subway stops, so it’s a small matter of just hopping off and grabbing a quick bite to eat between seeing your other points of interest and attractions. The meal you have might just be the memory that you remember most, as you take an hour to just sit and chill among the bustle and seeming chaos.

3) Catch a show on Broadway: New York City is famous for its theaters and shows, so if you’ve got a free evening consider catching a Broadway show while you’re here. For that matter, there’s plenty of shows and entertainment off of Broadway that are best done in a place as unique as Manhattan is.
