If you would like to learn more about the history of New York City, go to this museum or watch the documentary on Netflix called The New York City Documentary.

Fantastic museum on New York history. From there you should go to Museum mile to sample some of the city's greatest museums: The Metropolitan Museum, the Guggenheim and so on... or take a stroll in Central Park

They give an amazing look into the creation of NYC and everything it had to go through to be the city it is today.
