Time Out New York has teamed up with Google for the launch of the company's new Tour Creator, a feature that provides 360-degree experiences of some of the world's most glorious locations. The experience allows you to digitally interact with locales around the world (and if you have a VR headset, you can literally be immersed in each place). 

We took the tech to a whole new level, and built a tour of the best day ever in New York City. Explore the locations below, starting at the majestic New York Public Library main branch and ending with a performance at Lincoln Center. As you explore the tour, click on the onscreen icons to uncover even more facts about each location.

Whether you're planning a trip New York or are a local, the new technology allows you to explore the city like never before. Check it out below.

Experience a perfect day in NYC

New York Public Library

Head to midtown and hit the century-old main branch of the New York Public Library. It's open to the pulbic, though it feels like a place that houses royalty. It's one of the best places in the city to relax and quietly read a book or click away on a laptop.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Travel north on Fifth Avenue to the Met, the largest art museum in the entire country. It's surprisingly easy to navigate on weekdays—the earlier you arrive, the better.

Central Park

Exit the Met and enter New York's backyard, and find out why it's one of the most recognizable green spaces on the planet.

The Plaza Hotel

Unwind a bit with a round of tea at the Plaza Hotel's delightful Palm Court. Then, head upstairs to treat yourself to a glass (or bottle) at the space's Champagne bar.

Lincoln Center

If you want to experience some of the best theater that New York has to offer, Lincoln Center is a sure bet. Explore the programming at Lincoln Center Theater, the Metropolitan Opera House or the David H. Koch Theater and get ready to be wowed by an awe-inspiring performance.
