About New York, NY Attractions

A melting pot if ever there was one, New York City is home to a truly astonishing variety of arts organizations and cultural associations. Its massive museums devoted to art and natural history are world-renowned, but the city's smaller museums have their own appeal, often featuring a narrower collection or an esoteric focus, like crafts, design and photography.  Despite the constant construction of new buildings around town (some of which are architecturally significant), there are still a number of fascinating historic structures. And even with the never-ending hustle and bustle, it's quite possible to find serene retreats among New York City's zoos, parks and gardens. Guided tours, whether on foot, by double-decker bus or via boat, are a great way to get a solid overview of the city.
