Some of New York City’s most iconic attractions and museums are within a short walk of Trump International Hotel & Tower New York and its second-floor The Trump Spa New York. The closest is famed Central Park, which is literally just outside the door of the hotel. One of the most-beloved green spaces in the city, the park teems with joggers, cyclists, roller bladers and lazily, happily strolling families — come here for NYC people-watching at its best, whether you’re exploring by foot or from the comfort of a romantic horse-drawn carriage. (Our Forbes Travel Guide editors think the former option is a better way to see the park, particularly for first-time visitors.)
Further up Central Park West is the American Museum of Natural History and attached Hayden Planetarium at the Frederick Phineas and Sandra Priest Rose Center for Earth and Space, while if you head about 10 short blocks south from the hotel on Eighth Avenue, then take a left on 47th Street, you’ll run smack dab into the middle of the Theater District and all of Time Square’s commercial glory.
