Seeing a Broadway show is an absolute must for anyone visiting New York City, regardless of the time of year. Opening March 20, 2014 at the New Amsterdam Theatre, on Broadway and 42nd Street, is Disney's Aladdin!

3 - Tour the Brooklyn Navy Yard
Among New York City's many tours, the Brooklyn Navy Yard Past, Present, & Future Tour led by Turnstile Tours is not to be missed. Located along Brooklyn's working waterfront with unforgettable views of the Manhattan skyline, this tour offers travelers a unique exploration of a historic naval shipyard that today is a hub for some of the nation's most cutting edge companies and eco-friendly manufacturers. This behind-the-scenes experience of New York City makes this tour one of our favorites this year, but what may have travelers sold is knowing that their ticket price is for a good cause. Turnstile Tours offers these tours in partnership with the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92, a visitor center complete with exhibitions, programs, and a café, as well as a job training and placement center that connects locals with employment opportunities.
