The first step for most seasoned tourists is The Visitors Center. It tells you what to visit, the hours the site is open, latest museum exhibits, latest Broadway shows. It's truly a fountain of information!!!

We stopped in here while walking around to warm up. It was cool to see the new years eve ball up close. They had a good selection of maps & such. Other than that I wouldn't make a special trip here. But it is free.

Convenient location open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Offers local maps and traveler information on sites, transportation, etc...The NYE ball is located inside for the celebration. You can make a wish, write it down on provided "confetti" paper and it gets dispursed during the celebration.
