New York City is no doubt one of the greatest cities in the world.  It is the largest city in the U.S., and is an architectural marvel with plenty of historic monuments, magnificent buildings and countless dazzling skyscrapers. Besides the architectural delights, New York is an urban jungle that has everything to offer to visitors. The city is home to numerous museums, parks, trendy neighborhoods and shopping streets. From Statue of Liberty to Empire State Building, Wall Street to Times Square, 5th Ave to the Metropolitan Museum, everything is so "New York" that people can easily recognize them.

Getting there ...

We continued the trip from Toronto.  However, there was a storm around NYC, so our flight could not take off until it cleared up (we actually got on the plane, but were asked to get off to wait for further notice).  Although there was almost 2-hour delay, the kids had a good time at the airport.  When we got to LaGuardia Airport, the sky was gradually clearing up.  We decided not to rent cars in NYC, but rather to take public transportation around the city, which is a much more efficient way to travel in New York.  We also got 3-day New York Passes which allowed us to go to many attractions in NYC.
