Once you have travelled to New York City you will appreciate why Frank Sinatra sang of yearning to “wake up in that city that doesn’t sleep.”
Depending on your favourite pastime, there are numerous wonderful ways to enjoy your New York holiday. The theatre scene is world-renowned. There are the lively Broadway musicals or the smaller offerings of off-Broadway to take in.
For more entertainment, enjoy a concert or sporting event at Madison Square Gardens. Pencil in a New York Yankees, Knicks or Giants game into your itinerary and remember that the US Tennis Open is held at Queens.
New York boasts an unparalleled range of department stores and boutiques, especially in Manhattan, making holidays to New York, a shopaholic's paradise. Central Park occupies 843 acres of the heart of New York and acts as the place for locals and visitors to take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life.
The city is home to many of the most recognised and admired landmarks and attractions in the world. Some of the must-see attractions include seeing the towering Statue of Liberty and touring historical Ellis Island. Outstanding views of the city can be found from Brooklyn Bridge, or climb 1,500 feet above street level to the 86th floor of the art deco Empire State Building.
The New York Public Library is idyllic, with its majestic reading rooms, and the fine collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art are internationally celebrated. The prestigious Guggenheim Museum and the American Museum of Natural History are equally unmissable.
Rockefeller Centre is the place to head to for sights of the famous ornate Christmas tree and skating rink, which are part of the lavish Christmas decorations when New York truly becomes a winter wonderland. All year round, Times Square, or as it is aptly known, ‘the crossroads of the world,’ is a hub of bright flashing lights and video screens that run 24/7.
New York’s history as a base for immigrants has diversified the city’s cuisine. The city is famous for its bagels, New-York style pizza and cheesecake.
In one day you could experience the real New York with a pretzel or a hot dog from one of the thousands of street vendors before trying haute cuisine in one of the most diverse selections of fine dining options in the country.
