New York City has an abundance of tourist attractions and iconic sites, however why not get off the tourist trail and experience New York City like a local.  Soak up the culture by visiting the art scene at the MOMA, Museum of Modern Art.  Located in Midtown the museum’s collection is impressive, but just as impressive is the sleek architecture and interior design of the building itself. Levels upon levels of famous artists and installations that will make you stop and pause.

From the MOMA take an iconic walk down Fifth Avenue, past the Empire State Building to a slice of Italy in NYC - Eataly. Described as an Italian Megastore that combines elements of a bustling European open market, a Whole-Foods-style supermarket, a high-end food court and a New Age learning center, here’s where you can get a feel for the foodie scene in NYC. There’s something for everyone in this huge welcoming space.

You can shop for Italian foods, cheese, produce, and wine, or you can have dinner there at one of the seven restaurants within the market. Or, for a real treat you can attend a special event at the la Scuola Grande and have an Italian chef prepare a meal right in front of you.  Ask them questions, watch them plate up the meals, and make new friends at a communal table as you enjoy a meal from Italy.
