You could not pay me to go to NYC now.
Friend of mine is a retired NYC detective born and raised in NYC and he refuses to go back.

Aircraft Carrier Intrepid - The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum it was docked near pier 83 when I took the boat tour around Manhattan many years ago. Didn't go on the aircraft carrier. The boat tour was great. Last time I looked the ticket price was very high.

Went into the Trump Tower many years ago and it was gaudy. Coffee shop in the basement had high prices even for NYC. The lobby had 3 plain cloths security men. All were about 6'11", 245 lbs. By law the public has access to the lobby.

Staten Island Ferry ride was cheap and had good views of the city.

Statue of Liberty , saw it in the 70's and the Island was very clean. Climbed to the top of the statue. Dad told me that coming home from Europe after WWII , all troops were on the deck. As soon as the Statue of Liberty came into view, thousands of men broke into tears and wept openly to include him.

Here’s another link. One “$” worth of swank. Unless you’re homeless and penniless, you can likely partake. Spiderman used to work there.

My wife is on her way home from a visit to my daughter's place in Gramercy Park Manhattan as I type. She said it was great, but bring a mask... Everyone is wearing them there. Personally, ICNLT, but my wife loves it. All of the restaurants are open, and she felt perfectly safe.
1) Stop in Tiffany's and check it out. People watching there is and there is a lot of famous stuff right near there.
2) Take the Staten Island Ferry. It's free and you'll get a different perspective of the city.
3) The Intrepid Aircraft Carrier is a great tour. You'll be right in Hell's Kitchen as you walk to it. I have done it, and the Vets who guide you have sailed on it, and are a wealth of knowledge.

While visiting Ellis Island, take a guided 90 minute tour on the New Jersey side of the island and see inside areas of the abandoned 750 bed Ellis Island hospital complex. These buildings have been off limits to the public since 1951 and each day, a limited number of guests are allowed to tour the decaying facility.

Is this still open?
