Help!!! NYC Trip with Teenagers

Our high school is taking a three-day field trip to NYC. Any advice on what we should take our students (teenagers) to go see? Any advice is welcomed....

You could start here on TA - tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g60763-Activitie…

And perhaps you could be more specific in your interests. Museums? Sight-seeing? Tours? Broadway plays? Historical/Cultural sites? Free things to do?

Take them to a show. Some options are Hairspray and Wicked on Broadway, but they may prefer STOMP or Blue Man Group which are Off Broadway.

The Staten Island Ferry is a great NYC adventure, and is free to boot. After the ferry, you can take a walk up Broadway to St Johns and the Trade Center site. From there, you can take an easy walk to a great lunch in Chinatown.

NYC has some amazing museums. Check out the Met, MOMA, Guggenheim etc. However, for the MTV generation - head to the Museum of Television and Broadcasting. I'd call in advance to see if they give group rates.

UN Headquarters

A museum -- the Met, the Frick, the Cloisters, the Musuem of Natural History, etc.

Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge

Rockefeller Center (including Top of the Rock), St. Patrick's, and Fifth Avenue


The Bronx Zoo

The Circle Line (I would give them the three-hour tour, to see the whole island of Manhattan, and what faces it)

Wall Street, and the Federal Reserve gold vault tour
