New York

Overview

New York City, you know it well: yellow cabs gridlocked on neat gridiron streets; neon-lit Times Square, Fifth Avenue, the Rockefeller Center; experimental fashion; Wall Street; never sleeping; vibrant neighbourhoods that showcase centuries of immigrant influence; museums that showcase decades of trailblazing art, hip Greenwich Village, the best pizzas outside of Naples – this is the most famous and diverse city in the world.

New York is a wonderfully multifaceted metropolis – somewhere where every language, culture and cuisine is represented – divided into five boroughs, each with their own distinct personality. The smallest and most famous of which is Manhattan Island, where understandably visitors spend most of their time.

Even after you’ve stood in awe of the peerless glass-and-steel skyline, climbed the Empire State and Art Deco Chrysler Building to look out over Hudson River, Manhattan has an exhaustive range of things to do. Pay a visit to Lady Liberty, hit the shops on Fifth Avenue or browse the home of luxury, Bergdorf Goodman, visit the Museum of Modern Art take in a show on Broadway or a film festival in fashionable TriBeCa.

In a city that, at least, rarely sleeps, the nightlife choices are vast – everything from pulsing warehouse clubs in the Meatpacking District to historic pubs, where Washington washed down victory over the British with a few pints.

Surrounding the city is a startlingly verdant and rural state, known for vineyards, beaches, mountains, waterfalls and charming colonial towns. Green, suburban Long Island is a popular New Yorker vacation spot, with the golden beaches of the Hamptons becoming a summertime playground for America’s rich and famous. The area attracts weekend golfers to its championship courses and wine connoisseurs to its celebrated and scenic vineyards at Finger Lakes. On the northwest fringes of the state lies the thundering Niagara Falls.
