NYC is home to the United Nations’ headquarters, the New York Stock Exchange, and Times Square. Every year, millions of tourists visit the city for its legendary sights and attractions. New York City is subdivided into five distinct boroughs (Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Staten Island), each of which has a distinguished history and unique cultural influence in the city.

While there, watch a live performance at The Metropolitan Opera, Jersey Boys, Les Miserables, The Phantom of The Opera, or Broadway.
