New York City, USA Plan a trip

If you’ve never visited America’s most famous city, it’s time to make your NYC dream a reality.

New York City is ingrained in popular culture, so many first-time visitors think they know exactly what to expect. But there’s just nothing like being there, soaking up the incredible atmosphere and thrumming energy of this multicultural metropolis.

There are iconic landmarks and architectural treasures scattered throughout the city, from the Empire State Building to Grand Central Station, the Statue of Liberty to Times Square.

But once you’ve ticked these off your must-see list, it’s time to uncover the real New York. This means diving into its characterful neighbourhoods, including Greenwich Village, Manhattan SoHo, Chelsea, Little Italy, Harlem and the Lower East Side.

Tuck into street food at the monthly Bronx Night Market, take the aerial tram to Roosevelt Island or explore the abandoned Ellis Island Hospital. And of course, there’s the surprisingly vast Central Park for picnics, strolls and a welcome burst of greenery.

And if you’re interested in architecture, you’ll be fascinated by the diversity of styles on offer everywhere – from Greek and Gothic Revival to Italianate and Tudor.

The best way to see New York is street-level, by pounding its sidewalks. But if you want a snap of that iconic skyline, head to the One World Observatory or the Brooklyn Bridge.

A trip to New York is a riot of eye-opening cultural and sensory treats. This city offers up world-class art and performance, at the New York City Opera, New York Philharmonic, Lincoln Center, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and many, many other venues. Plus, exceptional nightlife, shopping and a deliciously diverse food scene with influences from all over the world.

There’s simply no time to experience it all in one trip, but once you’ve been to NYC – you won’t be able to wait to go back.
