New York is one great place! If you are looking for diversity, this is the place to visit! While you may want to spend the day walking around gazing at the fantastic architecture, or you want to visit any cultural events, the city has it all.
New York is not exactly the place for outdoors activities, but the many parks certainly offer a little breeze of fresh air at time.

Besides the many historical sites, you can visit museums, galleries, theater, and many of the fantastic restaurants that are all scattered around town. You'll find authentic dishes from China, Russia, Italy, Japan... well every country really.

I rate New York really high, if it wasn't for the little outdoors activities, This city would receive somewhere between 90% and 95%.
