Manhattan, one of five boroughs making up New York City, is only 2 miles wide at its widest point and just 10 miles long. Nowhere else in America is so much history, culture, entertainment, finance and diversity crammed into such a small area. Beside the many usual things to see and do in the City are many places of which most people are unaware. Did you know that New York City was the first capital of the United States of America, or that the majority of Americans either live in New York City or had ancestors who came to America by way of New York Citys Ellis Island?
For those who want to tour New York City on their own, we are not far from the commuter railroad that stops near the Empire State Building and Ground Zero. From there you can use public transportation to go to the various sites. Once in the city you can also take Gray Line Tours or Circle Line boat tours.
One can also drive into Manhattan. Tolls and parking are expensive, and roads are very congested on weekdays from 6:00AM to 7:00PM. For these reasons, we do not recommend driving into the City unless you want to see a special event such as an evening Broadway Show or a night ballgame in Yankee or Shea Stadiums, and you do not mind driving in heavy traffic.
