The Park Avenue Armory is a great space, architecturally. It’s got gorgeous rooms that are well worth seeing. I do think that it would be a better experience as a self-guided tour, but it’s still very much worth a visit. Budget two hours.

Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have
easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural

livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth
Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of
the nation's most famous attractions in a single
stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
