If you haven't visited New York City recently, you've got some catching up to do, from the observatory at One World Trade, to the new Whitney Museum, to happening neighborhoods far from Manhattan.This June 4, 2015 photo shows a terrace at the new Whitney Museum in New York.You're looking at Manhattan when you spot the Empire State Building.The city's other just-opened standout is the Whitney Museum, south of 14th Street, on Gansevoort Street near 10th Avenue. New York's an expensive city but many must-sees are free: Times Square, Central Park, a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and a ride on the Staten Island Ferry, which provides terrific views of the Statue of Liberty. Two more spots that opened in recent years have quickly become among the city's most popular (and crowded): the 9/11 Memorial, a park with pools in the footprints of the twin towers and the High Line, a park built on an abandoned rail line that lets you see the city from 9 meters up. A Broadway show is also a must for many visitors, while top museums include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Museum of Natural History and the Museum of Modern Art, which is hosting an extraordinary exhibit (through Sept. 7) of Jacob Lawrence's paintings of the early 20th-century Great Migration of African-Americans from the South to northern cities.
