Been there, seen all that there is to see? Not in New York City, you haven't. With its constant reinvention and renewal, it's possible to see a new New York every time you visit. Tick off the essential must-do list on your first visit, then dig deeper as you return again (and again).
If you've already been to the top of the Empire State Building, here's a tip: many consider the view from Top of the Rock (on top of the Rockefeller Center) to have even more wow factor with its sweeping views over Central Park and the city. For downtown views and out to Brooklyn, your best bet is the top of One World Observatory.
Many TV talk shows including Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and variety shows like Saturday Night Live are filmed in NYC in front of live studio audiences. Scoring tickets isn't easy for the popular shows, but most do offer a limited number of same-day tickets (queues form hours in advance).
Go behind the scenes of The Great White Way on Walks of New York's new tour, Disney on Broadway: Behind the Magic. The small-group walking tour takes theatre buffs behind the curtain at Disney's New Amsterdam Theatre and into the Prop and Costume studio where original pieces from shows such as Mary Poppins and The Lion King can be seen up close.
