Many think that September is one of the best months to visit New York. The weather has just cooled off from summer, but is still enjoyable enough to spend time outside. With that said, that city may be a bit more crowded, but not with children since summer break will have ended. Broadway shows will officially resume September 14 for the first time since the pandemic, so expect lots of options for great performances.
Built in 1931 by the Rockefeller family, this complex consists of 22 acres of 19 commercial buildings between 48th Street and 51st Street in Midtown, Manhattan.

Get a bite at the Rockefeller Cafe, take an NBC studio tour, go shopping at one of the many shops, or see the city's skyline at one of the three observation decks, that all have 360-degree views and are open until midnight for a look after dark.

Check out Brooklyn Flea, where locals and tourist flock to socialize and shop for vintage clothes, hand-made jewelry and crafts, and antique furniture.
