New York City. It?s called the city that never sleeps and it lives up to the name if you want to keep yourself entertained for an entire day and night. NYC is as versatile as a city as they come. It can be quiet if you visit one of its many parks, busy if you find yourself in Times Square, a gastronomical delight if you dine in one of its many restaurants, an artist?s paradise in any of its museums. It has hiking trails, zoos, observational decks, large green spaces, and of course, a beautiful skyline. You could go up the Empire State Building, visit the Statue of Liberty, spend the day at Central Park, watch a musical on Broadway, walk the Brooklyn Bridge, hang out at the MoMA, or pick from a variety of things the city has on offer.

Walking the streets of NYC, you feel like a true star - whether it's a performance at Radio City or attending one of the amazing Broadway shows, NYC is something you can't replicate anywhere else in the world.

If you?re a student of international politics then a visit to the United Nations should be one of the things to definitely check off your list. The United Nations is headquartered in New York City, New York 10017 on 1st Avenue between 42nd and 48th Streets. The complex has served as the official HQ of the UN since it was built in 1952 by architectural firm Harrison and Abramovitz. It is located in the Turtle Bay neighborhood of Manhattan and covers 18 acres of land that overlooks the East River.

If you are interested in admiring what mother nature has to offer, we suggest visiting the New York Botanical Garden, located in Queens, New York. The Queens Botanical Garden (QBG) is a botanical garden located on Main Street in Flushing, Queens. The Garden is a 39-acre site that features flowers, bee, vegetable, wedding, and perennial gardens in addition to an arboretum, an art gallery, and a Visitor and Admin Building, built to LEED-certified standards. The Queens Botanical Garden was created as part of 1939 New York World?s Fair and was eventually moved to its current location in 1964 in preparation for that year?s New York World?s Fair. Since moving, the Botanical Garden has continued to grow and expand by offering education to local residents and developing a master plan to renovate the garden in 2001. This has led to the Queens Botanical Garden becoming a place worth visiting for anyone that loves plant life and seeing an exquisitely tended garden in the heart of Queens borough New York.

As you travel through the five boroughs of New York, be sure to make a stop in the Bronx and visit the Zoo. The Bronx Zoo is located within Bronx Park in the Bronx, New York City.

The Zoo is well known for its impressive diversity of animals and its incredible, award-winning exhibits throughout. The Bronx Zoo opened to the public in 1899 and has created a unique view of the natural world for residents and visitors to New York City. It is also a center for conservation efforts that span across the entire globe. You can visit the (Sea) Lions, (Mountain) Tigers and (Big Grizzly) Bears, oh my! There are more than 700 species of animals, who educate and inspire animal lovers of all ages.
