Day 1: Arrival

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.

Day 2: Museum of Modern Art, United Nations Headquarters Guided Tour

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.

Guided tour at the United Nations Headquarters

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).

Day 3: NBC Studios Tour, Top of the Rock Observation Deck, Guggenheim Museum

>Enjoy a tour of the studios that produced famous programs such as the Today Show and Saturday Night Live. have fun at the NBC Experience Store!/p>

Ascent to the Top of the Rock Observation Deck

Head to 30 Rockefeller Plaza for a ride up to the 70th-floor observation deck of the "Top of the Rock." Enjoy the stunning views over the skyscrapers of midtown and downtown.

Guggenheim Museum

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.

Day 4: Excursion to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, Broadway Show

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.

Wall Street area

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.

Free time in New York City

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.
