Sensational sightseeing, shopping, skylines, shows, sports – the city that literally never sleeps is a frenetic hub of exciting activity that beguiles and intrigues all who visit. World famous attractions like the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building – the tallest with an observation deck on its 86th floor offering panoramic views across the city – are a must and don’t disappoint.
Other quintessential New York experiences include a spectacular Broadway show and an adrenaline-filled game of American Football (Giants), basketball (Knicks), baseball (Yankees) or ice hockey (Rangers) and whilst the iconic yellow cabs are everywhere, a water taxi along the Hudson River or the Staten Island Ferry offer far more relaxing and rewarding vistas and conversations to strike up.
Live the dream...
If you’re an art lover, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim are all exceptional, while top of the list for most shopping aficionados is New York’s 5th Avenue and high-end boutiques such as Prada, Versace and Tiffany & Co – or Madison Avenue for Jimmy Choo, Christian Laboutin, DKNY. Their iconic department stores like Macy’s are superb too.
Times Square is hailed as ‘The Crossroads of the World’ and is a truly unique symbol of bustling New York, but if you need a breather take in Central Park and its beautiful gardens, lakes and zoo or enjoy a delightful carriage ride along its paths. This city is famed for its cuisine and nowhere more so than Little Italy and Chinatown, plus a fine array of gourmet restaurants as well as quirky delis and cafes.
