It's an exciting time when you arrive in "The Big Apple!"
As you make your way through man-made canyons, surrounded by unnatural mountains of steel, glass and concrete, you may remember that the once-pristine island of Mannahatta was purchased from Native Americans for about $24 dollars' worth of costume jewelry and seashells.
Visit the splendidly redesigned MoMA, which houses the world's richest collection of modern sculpture and world masters, from Monet's Water Lilies and Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon to Andy Warhol's soup cans.
Learn about the intergovernmental organization founded in 1945, and which now counts 193 Member States. Its headquarters is located on US soil, but on a property declared extraterritorial through a treaty with the United States. Representatives meet in the General Assembly Hall (access subject to availability).

Visit the Fifth Avenue landmark designed by Frank Lloyd Wright to view a strong collection of modern art. You'll also quickly understand why the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is one of the most architecturally interesting buildings of the 20th century.
Embark on a ferry ride to Ellis Island, where twelve million Europeans first experienced America through the island's chaotic immigration processing facilities. Continue to Liberty Island to get a closer look at the Statue of Liberty. Built by the French, Bartholdi's "Lady Liberty" was recently renovated to bring back her original splendor.
Take a stroll in the Wall Street area, the financial hub of the world. Landmarks in the vicinity include Chinatown, SoHo, Greenwich Village, the Brooklyn Bridge, Trinity Church and its churchyard with the grave of Alexander Hamilton, Wall Street, and Federal Hall, where George Washington's inauguration took place in 1789.
Other sites include the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the "Charging Bull" and Battery Park.
The remainder of the day is free to plan as you wish.
You may want to explore South Street Seaport. Once a rundown area of empty warehouses and dilapidated piers, the old seaport has been restored into an eleven-acre complex that includes art galleries, craft shops, restaurants, and the South Street Seaport Museum and its Street of Ships.
