One of the first things I did in New York, after a crapy overnight flight from Vegas, was walk over to Central Park to do a carriage ride! This was my buddy, Bruno!
As part of the New York City Pass I had, it included a one day pass to the New York Big Bus Tour. This is a 2 route trip around New York City that takes you to all the tourist attractions whilst giving a live commentary. Below is a nice photo tour of the spots you see on the Big Bus.
