Sightseeing in New York City is a must, whether you are in town for a weekend or for an entire week. Manhattan is such a wonderfully diverse area, with different cultures woven together to form a colorful patchwork quilt. When you walk the streets of New York, you will hear Spanish being spoken on one block, Italian on the next, Portuguese around the corner, and even French and German here and there. Of course, you'll also hear English spoken in the unforgettable New York accent.

Most of us think of the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty when we think of famous landmarks in Manhattan. True, everyone who visits the city should take in these sights at least once, but there are also a host of other places to see. Aside from taking in a Broadway show or two, you may want to head over to South Street Seaport or the United Nations to stir things up a bit.

For those who love outer space, there is the Rose Center for Earth and Space, which can be appreciated by adults and children alike. There is also the Intrepid Museum and numerous art galleries in the area, as well as loads of neat shops in Greenwich Village and Soho. You may want to check out Carnegie Hall, the Chrysler Building, and the beautiful St. Patrick's Cathedral. Don't forget about Battery Park, Chinatown, Little Italy, the Museum of Jewish Heritage and the Irish Memorial.

So Much to Do, So Little Time

Many visitors to the city complain that they do not have nearly enough time to see all that they wanted to see during their stays. If you find yourself in this predicament, look at it from another angle. Now you just have more reason to come back to the Big Apple for another round of fabulous sightseeing.
