As America's most populous city, New York City (NYC for short) is actually a collection of five counties or boroughs - Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island. Within the boroughs are hundreds of distinctive neighborhoods where the term "melting pot" comes to vibrant, boisterous life. New Yorkers trace their roots to more than 180 different countries, and their diversity is reflected in the city's architecture, cuisine, fashion, music and entertainment.
The skyline alone is worth the trip, with the Empire State Building serving as a guidepost for any newcomers afraid of losing their bearings while navigating midtown Manhattan. But New York is much more than its skyscrapers. In the 24 blocks of Museum Mile, you’ll find 9 world-class museums including the Met, the Guggenheim and the quirkily fascinating Museum of the City of New York. Fifth Avenue displays an array of flagship shopping venues include fashionista faves Tiffany’s, Saks,Victoria’s Secret, Prada and Louis Vuitton. Apple and Microsoft cater to the tech-savvy crowd.

Many New York hotels provide cribs and play yards or arrange for baby sitters on request. For families with older children, the TRYP by Wyndham Times Square South features Family Rooms that sleep up to eight, with bunk beds for the kids. It's a 10-minute stroll from Times Square and the Empire State Building. The Bowery's moderately priced Sohotel offers a Deluxe Family Room that sleeps five, with a mini-fridge for storing doggie bags.

New York has something for everyone, doable on a budget (much to people’s dismay) or as a total luxury. Plan your trip ahead of time, carefully selecting your restaurants and must sees before you travel will help make your time a lot better spent!
There is truly nothing quite like the rhapsodic pulse of Manhattan. For the artistically inclined I’d recommend the MOMA, Whitney, & Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as Lincoln Center for the operatic nightlife in all its incandescent glory.
It is definitely a destination to put on your bucket list. There's tons of places to visit and things to do. I'm already considering going back to do more things I missed.
Sure you can do the run of the mill tourist stuff or you can get a great air bnb and really see the city and all the food and culture is has to offer! No shortage of accidental adventures and things to see.
