Spend a few hours exploring the beautiful campus of Baruch College. The theater is a popular place for students and visitors to watch films and staged productions. After the show, head to the student cafeteria and enjoy a slice of cake and a cup of coffee.
Just a few blocks from the campus is the famous Gramercy Theater, which has been home to a number of off-Broadway shows over the years and was also the venue for the filming of The Fugees "Killing Me Softly" video. The theater now hosts musical performances on a regular basis.
Walk a few blocks or take a taxi to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. This is a very important part of the recent history of the United States and the museum tells the story of the destruction of the Twin Towers on 9/11. The museum is situated on the original site of these iconic buildings and includes a wall of remembrance that names everyone who died that day. Screens show the families of victims and citizens of New York explaining how that day changed their lives forever. There is a quiet garden for reflection on this tragedy.
