However, due to a chaotic morning, Kevin accidentally boards a wrong flight to New York City while his family flies to Miami. Once in New York, Kevin discovers that he has no money or credit cards and must survive on his own on the streets of New York City.
Kevin decides to stay at The Plaza, a luxurious Manhattan hotel where he manages to trick the staff into thinking he's a guest. However, he's not the only person in New York City that's given the hotel a headache. Kevin's nemesis from the first movie, the Wet Bandits, Harry (Pesci) and Marv (Stern), who have escaped from prison, are also in New York and have set their sights on robbing the toy store that Kevin plans to go to the next day.

Kevin also explores New York City's famous landmarks like the Empire State Building, the World Trade Center, and Central Park. He even gets to visit Duncan's Toy Chest, where he meets Mr. Duncan and helps him save his store from being taken over by a greedy toy corporation.
Meanwhile, Harry and Marv are hot on Kevin's heels, trying to catch him and get their hands on the toy store's loot. They follow Kevin all around New York, and the two of them have their share of funny mishaps along the way.

As the story progresses, Kevin begins to miss his family and regrets his initial excitement about being alone in New York City.
