Miss America group shot

All 52 contestants for this year's Miss America competition are making their ways to Atlantic City for the pageant. 

Though the 52 contestants for the Miss America competition will spend their lion's share of time in Atlantic City, they're spending the first part of Tuesday in New York City. 

As temporary New Yorkers, they'll be featured in today's broadcast of Good Morning America on ABC from 7 to 9 a.m. The current titleholder, Kira Kazantsev, will join them. 

Don't worry, they'll be back in Atlantic City soon enough -- the contestants are planned to be at the official Miss America welcome ceremony at Kennedy Plaza in Atlantic City this evening.

Eventually, they'll compete in preliminary competitions from Sept. 8 through Sept. 10, with a Miss America 2016 crowned on Sept. 13. 

Social media posts from the young women showed them in New York City Monday night, and they'll continue their Big Apple tour later Tuesday to Carmine's Italian restaurant, Junior's Restaurant famous for its cheesecake, and Baked By Melissa cupcakes.
