OVERVIEW: New York City’s five boroughs are home to some of the world’s most recognizable and cherished landmarks and attractions. From Times Square and Central Park to the Empire State Building and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the island of Manhattan packs more legendary icons into one compact area than any other place on Earth. With so much to see and do, a trip to NYC may seem a little overwhelming. It’s impossible to see everything, regardless of your staying power, so instead, try to soak in the sheer amount of culture, restaurants, exhibitions, and people here, and you’ll be acting like a jaded New Yorker in no time.
On the New York Bethel Basic, visit such sites as the Empire State Building, Broadway and Times Square, Ground Zero and of course, the office complex, the Patterson Educational Center in Patterson, NY and Watchtower Farms! Not to be missed is a very special Bible tour at the Metropolitan Museum of Art!
