Seriously New York not fair. You have way too much stuff. And the stuff in that stuff? Come on – share it around a little.
New York has the American Museum of Natural History. Any other museum would kill to have just one of their exhibits. This is the definition of a natural history museum.
Then New York has the Met which you could easily spend a month looking at. It has an insane amount of historical, cultural and other stuff. Biggest complaint are that the floors are too hard so it hurts your feet trying to see all of the awesomeness.
Then New York has Broadway, which it doesn’t even matter which show you see, it is just a blast to see one.
Then New York has off-Broadway which lets you feel all cultural and cool and has genuinely challenging productions.
Then New York has Lady Liberty, great icon of Americanism.
Then New York has shopping and eating and other cool stuff.
New York should be made to share some of its riches with other states. It is way too much for one city!
Again, New York is something everyone should do. It has amazing stuff and the experience is ironically American.
Probably good from when kids are over 10 and people are young enough to be able to stand for a while. I am serious about the killer floors in the Met. Totally allow at least a week to experience New York and be prepared to spend some money.
I would give New York 9.2 out of 10.
