The city that never sleeps, New York deserves its reputation as one of the most exciting places in the world. Manhattan is brimming with vibrancy and excitement as cosmopolitan crowds of office workers and tourists mingle under the shadow of imposing skyscrapers.
The iconic Times Square is beating heart of theatre land where you can enjoy glittering Broadway musicals featuring some of the world’s most famous and talented actors. The Empire State Building and the Rockefeller Centre offer awe-inspiring architecture and spectacular summit views, whilst the gorgeous art deco Chrysler Building may no longer be the world’s tallest building, but remains one of the most attractive. The spectacular Manhattan skyline is perhaps best observed from the Statue of Liberty and Staten Island ferries off the southern tip of the island, whilst further north, the gargantuan Central Park is the perfect place to bike, run or walk away from the traffic. You can also shop ‘til you drop on Fifth Avenue, party hard in Hell’s Kitchen or devour tasty bagels, pizza and international cuisine at one of New York’s famous eateries. Outside of Manhattan, Brooklyn has a trendy hipster vibe which contrasts to the glamour of its more famous neighbour.
Whether you ride yellow cabs, subway trains or explore by foot, New York is easy to navigate thanks to its grid system and is an unmissable destination on your holiday to the USA.
