Must-Sees from the Editors of Travel + Leisure

Central Park

New York served as the capital of the United States from 1785 until 1790. It has been the country's largest city since 1790. The Statue of Liberty greeted millions of immigrants as they came to America by ship in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and is a globally recognized symbol of the United States and its democracy.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Established in 1870, the venerable institution has grown to be one of the premier art collections in the world. Gallery after gallery is filled with Egyptian art; canvases by the great Impressionists; sculptures, objets d’art, antiquities, and pieces from cultures across the globe. Come to see why even native New Yorkers make the pilgrimage here at least a few times a year.

Shopping in SoHo

What was once a rough-around-the-edges artists' enclave is now a haven of high-end shops, mid-range boutiques, and quirky trend-setting stores that you'll probably find nowhere else. Between Sixth Avenue to the West and Lafayette St. to the East (and Houston to the north—hence the nickname "South of Houston"), there’s everything from a shop selling skeletons and other curios (The Evolution Store); original jewelry designs (Fragments NYC, Reinstein/Ross); art galleries; and of course, loads of fashion. Take a break from all that retail therapy at a bistro like the classic Balthazar and watch the beautiful people stroll by.
