- Horse-drawn carriage ride around Central Park
- Time Square - the Toys R Us there has an indoor ferris wheel and there are plenty of other shops suitable for kids like the Disney Store, M&M's, Hershey, etc. It's also beautiful at night with all the flashy lights.

-Chelsea Market - this is where the original Oreo cookie started. Today its complete with little food shops.
-South Street Seaport
