From City Hall to The Battery, savor one-of-a-kind flavors from the world’s top chefs. Discover awe-inspiring museums like the 9/11 Memorial and the Ellis Island Immigration Museum. Take in a show or get a taste of New York nightlife and dance ‘til dawn. With hotels and lodging for every style and budget, you’ll be rested and ready for whatever comes next. And when one square mile contains infinite possibility, it could be anything. So get going, and see what’s happening in Downtown New York.
