WHAT TO SEE...
Grand Central Terminal
Often popularly (and correctly) called Grand Central Station or simply Grand Central is a terminal station at 42nd Street and Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. Built by and named for the New York Central Railroad in the heyday of American long-distance passenger trains, it is the largest train station in the world by number of platforms (44), with 67 tracks along them. They are on two levels, both below ground, with 41 tracks on the upper level and 26 on the lower. When the Long Island Railroad's new station, below the existing levels, opens Grand Central will offer a total of 75 tracks and 48 platforms. The terminal covers an area of 48 acres.
The Empire State Building
This 102-story Art Deco skyscraper, at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and West 34th Street, had it's name derived from the nickname for the state of New York. It stood as the world's tallest building for more than forty years, from its completion in 1931 until construction of the World Trade Center's North Tower was completed in 1972. Following the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001, the Empire State Building is once again the tallest building in New York City and New York State. The Empire State Building has been named by the American Society of Civil Engineers as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.
The Museum of Modern Art
MoMA is located in Midtown Manhattan on 53rd Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. It has been singularly important in developing and collecting modernist art, and is often identified as the most influential museum of modern art in the world. It also houses an award-winning fine dining restaurant, The Modern, run by Alsace-born chef Gabriel Kreuther.
Discover Broadway's Best
Honoring the best of Broadway both past and present, the Grand Hyatt New York is proud to announce a promotional partnership with the 2004 Tony Award-winning Wicked and the spectacular revival of Chicago. Located just minutes from the shows' venues at the Gershwin Theatre and the Ambassador Theatre, the Grand Hyatt is the perfect lodging option for your New York weekend
This large public, urban park in New York City, welcomes about twenty-five million visitors annually. Most of the areas immediately adjacent to the park are known for impressive buildings and valuable real estate. Central Park has been a National Historic Landmark since 1963. While much of the park looks natural, it is in fact almost entirely landscaped. It contains several natural looking lakes and ponds, extensive walking tracks, two ice-skating rinks, the Central Park Zoo, the Central Park Conservatory Garden, a wildlife sanctuary, a large area of natural woods, a reservoir with an encircling running track, and the outdoor Delacorte Theater which hosts the "Shakespeare in the Park" summer festivals.
WHERE TO SHOP...
Barneys New York
After financial woes forced the closure of the original Chelsea store a few years back, New York's self-made temple of chic is back on top. While the store focuses on hot-off-the-runway women's wear, its menswear runs the gamut from classic to cutting edge. The fragrance department works hard to offer offbeat and unusual scents as well as the classics. Bring your platinum card, because nothing comes cheap here, although house brands are solidly made and aren't off-the-chart expensive.
Macy's New York
A four-story sign on the side of the building trumpets MACY'S, THE WORLD'S LARGEST STORE - a hard fact to dispute, since the 10-story behemoth covers an entire city block, dwarfing even Bloomie's on the other side of town. Massive renovation over the past few years has redesigned many departments into more manageable "ministores". There's a Metropolitan Museum Gift Shop, a Swatch boutique, and cafes and makeup counters on several floors. And because so many feel adrift in this retail sea, the store provides personal guides/shoppers at no charge.
