What to do with a few hours to kill in New York City

New York City isn't called the Big Apple for nothing. There are so many things to do in the city that it may not seem worth the hassle of finding something to do for a few hours if you have some time to kill. But, instead of sitting idly in a hotel room, call up a luxury SUV or limo and have the driver bring you to one of these great places.

If you're tired of navigating the crowded streets of the city, head over to Central Park. Of course there are heavily trafficked areas of bikers, joggers and walkers, but the trails actually lead into some thick wooded areas that make you feel like you're in the middle of the forest, instead of one of the busiest cities in the world.

The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) Museum is also a great place to kill some time. There are roughly 50,000 different garments that have been around for hundreds of years, including clothing from America's first gallery of fashion, Lonely Planet reports.

While it's not nearly as popular today, Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery was once the most visited tourist attraction next to Niagara Falls, the source says. About 600,000 people have been buried here since 1838, and it was an important site during the Revolutionary War.

If you want to see the Statue of Liberty, but don't want to bother getting tickets for a ferry tour, you can hop on the Staten Island Ferry, which is free and goes right past the historic landmark. Once you get to Staten Island, you can jump right back on the boat and return to Manhattan.
