I have been to NYC only once & was in awe of Grand Central Station!  I loved the few sights I had time & ability to see; certainly the training center for cultural diversity (where I was in NYC to complete an employment training opportunity) was a rare treat!  My husband has never been so this would be the greatest gift and we would surely return with a page of amazing places to share!  Thank you for the chance at this truly generous gift!!!  Good luck everyone!!!


Best places to visit in NYC is definitely Eataly. Huge indoor marketplace filled with restaurants and Italian grocery items. You can't go wrong by grabbing an authentic pizza and then washing it down with premium beer at the rooftop birreria. Highly recommend it!


One of my favorite places to go in NYC has to be CITY ISLAND!!! You would have to be or know a real New Yorker to be introduced to this hidden Gem. #AmtrakNYC
