分享到:

You're finally visiting New York City. But there's a catch: you only have one day. (Hey, you've always heard that things move fast here—why not you?)

You won't get to everything—that would take years. But with the right plan, a one-day visit can be a terrific introduction to NYC. For the best day trip, it's wise to keep your adventure focused in Manhattan. While each of the five boroughs has its own personality and plenty to offer, Manhattan is centrally located and densely packed—so you can see the most there in a single day. The neighborhoods in this itinerary offer several activities clustered closely together—because we want you to get the most out of every minute. Ready, set…go!

Morning

Rockefeller Center
Start at Rockefeller Center, a familiar NYC location even for many who have never been to the City—it constantly appears on TV shows such as Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock and Today and during TV specials like the center's annual Christmas-tree-lighting ceremony. If you get here early enough, you can stand outside the windows to the Today studio and wave hello to your friends back home—a perfect way to start your whirlwind tour through Manhattan and simultaneously immortalize the experience.

After your morning-show cameo, take the elevator to the Top of the Rock Observation Deck. The vantage spot opens at 8am, and you'll beat the biggest crowds if you get there at breakfast time (late at night works, too, as it closes at midnight—the elevators go upstairs until 11pm). The deck provides one of the best views of New York City's legendary skyline and cityscape, which features more than 100 buildings measuring 500 feet or taller—not to mention the Statue of Liberty, the classic American icon. When you're back down at street level, head three blocks north to The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) to visit one of the world's finest collections of contemporary art, ranging from painting and sculpture to film and live performance.

Central Park
Next, head uptown to Central Park. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, the massive common space is a green oasis in the middle of the big city—and perhaps the world's most famous public park. Its 843 beautifully landscaped acres host meadows, bodies of water, more than 26,000 trees, 58 miles of walking paths, 36 bridges and arches and every kind of outdoor recreational activity imaginable: picnics, ice-skating, concerts, baseball, lawn bowling, mushroom walks and more. It's a sight every NYC visitor should see.

Afternoon

Museum Mile
East of Central Park is Museum Mile, which may have more culture per square foot than anywhere else in the universe. Limited time means you won't be able to enjoy all nine museums on this stretch of Fifth Avenue—but you should browse through at least one to get a sense of the unparalleled collection of art housed in the City. At The Metropolitan Museum of Art, at East 82nd Street, you can view limited-time exhibitions as well as objects in the museum's permanent collection, which consists of more than 2 million works of art that span the breadth of human history. The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum features scores of modern and contemporary masterpieces (not the least of which is the Frank Lloyd Wright–designed building itself). And El Museo del Barrio, at East 104th Street, showcases Puerto Rican, Caribbean and Latin American art.

Subway Ride and Lower Manhattan
Next, take part in another quintessential New York City experience—a subway ride. Catch the nearest downtown train, traveling the way locals do. Find your way to the stop closest to City Hall (one or two stops past Canal Street, depending on the subway line), where you can view the beautiful architecture of the structure, one of the nation's oldest still-functioning civic buildings. From the City Hall grounds, glance eastward at the Brooklyn Bridge, still an inspiring architectural marvel at more than 125 years old.

Then drop by Federal Hall National Memorial, the site where George Washington was inaugurated as the first president of the United States and where the Bill of Rights was passed. (The building now standing here is not the original structure; it was rebuilt in 1842.) Tours of the site and its exhibitions are free and offer a fascinating look at early American history in the nation's first capital. Your final downtown stop is the South Street Seaport, an area that boasts stunning waterfront views, numerous dining and shopping venues and the South Street Seaport Museum, which explores New York City's storied role as a major world port.

Evening

Harlem
The last (but certainly not least) item on your one-day NYC agenda is an evening uptown in Harlem—one of the City's most vibrant neighborhoods and a world capital of African-American history and culture. If you get there early enough, drop by The Studio Museum in Harlem (it closes at 6pm). The museum highlights black artists from the United States and around the world.

Settle in at one of Harlem's eminent performing arts venues. The Apollo Theater's Amateur Night (Wednesdays at 7:30pm) is a long-standing institution that has hosted luminaries such as Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. Lenox Lounge's art deco facade and furnishings are the perfect setting for great food and jazz—which the place has served up since the days when John Coltrane, Miles Davis and others would get the building bopping with their transcendent musical talents.

Harlem is also home to numerous restaurants serving delectable soul food, helping you to recharge after your fast-paced NYC primer.
