Drive through Central Park, Rockefeller Center and Times Square on your way to see the views from the world famous Empire State Building's 86th floor observation deck. Continue sightseeing through Greenwich Village, Soho and Chinatown to lower Manhattan and the Financial District. There you will see Wall St and learn about the original Dutch Colony of New Amsterdam. Stop for lunch on your own with views of the Hudson River and the World Trade Center at the newly renovated Brookfield Place.

After lunch your Guide will bring you to the 9/11 Memorial and the newly built Oculus for commentary and free time. Return to the coach for a quick drive to the Highline, an old elevated train track converted into an aerial green space and public park.
