Downtown

New York City

New York City is composed of five boroughs. While Manhattan and Staten Island are islands, Brooklyn and Queens are geographically part of Long Island, and the Bronx is attached to the US mainland. The islands are linked by bridges, tunnels and ferries.

Manhattan is 13.4 miles long and 2.3 miles wide at its widest. Except at its northern and southern tips, the borough's avenues run roughly north and south, and streets run east and west. One-way thoroughfares are common, with traffic moving east on even-numbered streets and west on odd-numbered streets. Fifth Avenue divides the island into east and west sides (for example, locations on 57th Street west of Fifth Avenue are designated "W. 57th St.," and east of Fifth Avenue, they're "E. 57th St."). As you move farther east or west from Fifth Avenue, street addresses increase, usually in increments of 100 from one block to the next. For north-south avenues, 20 blocks equals a mile, and the street numbers increase as you go uptown. Blocks can be a useful measure of distance, but keep in mind your direction: walking uptown from 1st Street to 6th Street is about a quarter of a mile, but walking the same number of blocks crosstown, from First Avenue to Sixth Avenue, is approximately a mile.

Performing arts, museums and culture to fill your

days!

Did you know that Mark Twain summered in New York State for more than 20 years? That's right. His octagonal study, where he wrote many of his classics, still sits along the Chemung River Valley in Elmira, and greets visitors year round. We're also home to the Dia: Beacon , the largest contemporary art museum in the country, home to Andy Warhol's "Shadows"-a linear installation, almost 350 ft. in length.

Don't forget, you can also head to the Catskills and visit Woodstock, or visit Sunnyside in the Hudson Valley where characters like Rip Van Winkle and the Headless Horseman were born. From artists retreats and the Corning Museum of Glass , to the Thousand Islands Boldt Castle and the magnetism of Manhattan, you'll find enough art and culture in New York to fill your vacation calendar for years to come.

New York Museums

Yes, we do have all the Top Museums a state could boast about!

You have heard about or been to the Guggenheim and the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art. But we also have quite a few you may not even realize are right here. Enjoy the outdoor sculpture parks of the Hudson Valley, where Storm King Art Center celebrates the works of more than 100 leading sculptors in a gorgeous, natural 500-acre setting. Or visit the Corning Glass Museum, and see where a young Thomas Edison had his first light bulbs hand-blown. These are just a few of the hidden gems New York has in store.
