GROUP TRAVEL LE ADER T H E B Y E L I Z A M Y E R S T he first face to greet throngs of dreaming immigrants tired from their long journey across the sea remains one of the most recognizable images of America: the Statue of Liberty. The colossal robed lady symbolizes American values at their purest for many people but is far from the only American icon in New York City. The Big Apple offers many iconic images recognized across the world as quintessentially American. Travelers can glimpse the country's tradition of entertainment at Coney Island, its architectural advancement at the Empire State Building and its musical innovation in Harlem. Groups nostalgic for historic and culturally relevant attractions can tour numerous well-known New York City sites beyond a quick photo op. Instead of speeding past Grand Central Station or Central Park on a driving tour, groups can enjoy walking tours outlining their historic significance. Travel planners seeking an itinerary packed full of impactful Americana attractions need look no further than historically and culturally significant New York City.
