New York City is one of the most exciting and energetic places in the world. It is overflowing with history, art, and culture. It can be expensive so its best to be prepared, organized and plan ahead. It’s not the place to gets stranded waiting on a passport renewal. With your passport in hand, take a bite of the Big Apple and get ready to have the time of your life.
