NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/29/14 -- The vast amount of cultural opportunities in New York City can be astounding. Whether the focus is on food, music, performance, or just taking in the sights and sounds of the city, NYC can accommodate to every individual's preference. Today, NYCTourist.com, a travel and tourism guide to the city, announced a list of 7 activities to consider during September in New York City.
1 - Labor Day in NYC
Sidestep traffic and keep the party going between destinations with a Take Me Out nightlife city tour. Find yourself in a spacious limousine as you take in historical prohibition locations in New York City. Learn more about life in the 1920's as you visit acclaimed speakeasy bars for a touch of the devil's nectar. If more modern sensibilities suit you, tour top New York City bars on a mixology tour. Sample exotic flavors or show your sophisticated tastes while traveling in style between spots. For larger groups, consider a party bus: fully stocked for you and your friends, step on a roving nightclub as you travel through the city. Take Me Out offers all of the fun and none of the worry for a night out on the town.
2 - Top of the Rock
For those interested in seeing the sights, Top of The Rock, the observation deck at 30 Rockefeller Center, provides a unique perspective of the skyline. Featuring exhibits designed by Swarovski specifically for the location, Top of the Rock showcases the importance of the arts in the city.

4 - Boat Tour
Leave behind the pavement and set sail around New York City on the water.

Classic Harbor Line Cruise provides this opportunity with vessels suited for myriad events and groups. Splurge aboard the luxury yacht Manhattan, designed after commuter yachts of the 1920's, or settle in for a corporate outing aboard the mini-style yacht Kingston.
