Considered the most famous and iconic city in the world, New York is as bright, bold and beautiful as you’d expect. Boasting the most famous skyline on the planet, this slick, sophisticated metropolis gleams from corner to corner, amid a showcase of glossy skyscrapers, you’ll be mesmerised throughout New York holidays any time of the year.

Scattered across five very different boroughs, the city of New York shines with international culture, offering new experiences across every street. Whether you want to head off on a museum trail, tread the arty path of the galleries, take in some American sports at the arenas, or shop, drink and dine until your heart’s content – when on holidays to New York the possibilities are endless. In addition to the city’s endless range of attractions, New York can also serve as a fantastic base for exploring some more of the USA’s fascinating cities, such as Boston to the north and Washington to the south.

Style and sophistication in NYC

You’ll have countless neighbourhoods and areas to choose from when it comes to staying in and exploring the most engrossing city in the USA. Each and every neighbourhood possesses its own unique identity and original set of attractions, ensuring your time in New York is met with a diverse and memorable experience. The sophisticated area of Manhattan, which many believe to be the heart of the city, is filled with soaring towers that are home to a fantastic portfolio of hotels offering nothing but class. Then there is laid-back Long Island and homely Staten Island ensuring your holidays in New York will allow for some rest and relaxation. Having now firmly sealed itself as Manhattan’s chic younger counterpart, Brooklyn is home to the ‘it’ crowd, brimming with new and unique attractions and venues, proving the place to go when you fancy immersing yourself in the latest trends. Its streets are lined with traditional brownstone townhouses, which provide cosy retreats for restful stays after days spent sightseeing the USA’s most exciting destination.

There are so many classic city icons to enjoy on New York holidays. Central Park offers some peace in the bustling heart of the city, while Times Square is gleaming with bright lights, international restaurants and shops galore. The streets of the city are lined with performers, vendors and food sellers, so you can find even the slightest bit of culture with every footstep you take. Across the Hudson River you will find Ellis Island and the iconic Statue of Liberty, which can be reached via ferry as you watch the Manhattan skyline retreat into the distance.

New York state of mind

By day you can lap up endless culture through its world class galleries and museums, enjoy strolls through Central Park and window-shopping across the designer boutiques of Fifth Avenue that outdo even Paris or Milan or head or take to the sky via observation decks and spy world-famous architectural wonders such as the Chrysler Building, the Rockefeller Centre and the Empire State Building, the latter which affords magical sights from its 86th and 102nd floor viewing decks. It is often said that no one can visit the city without looking up, and there are plenty of architectural sights to appreciate when you do – many of which you’ll find possible to ascend.

Nicknamed the City that Never Sleeps, New York certainly has a lot to offer when night falls during whirlwind city breaks. You can amuse yourself with a trip Broadway, take a seat at one of the many sports games such as baseball or basketball, or treat yourself to some world class dining, stylish drinking and some late night parties during holidays to New York. Whether you are exploring the East Coast from Boston to Florida, comparing the Big Apple to California, or just settling in for a long weekend of shopping and big city excitement, after a few moments in its streets you can see why so many people refer to New York City as the greatest city on earth.

Sightseeing

Times Square is a must, even if you don’t stay long because of the crowds. Plenty of boat, bus and helicopter tours abound, but some of the best sights are free to see from wandering the streets, such as the Manhattan skyline from Brooklyn Bridge. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is an impressively comprehensive and varied art gallery, with over two million works of art spanning five thousand years.

Day Trips

Coney Island is a must for those intrigued by a bit of downmarket seediness. Children and adults can enjoy the funfair rides, as well as endless varieties of sweet and savoury snacks like ‘Sausage Heros’, sold from traditional stalls. Adults can enjoy a tipple from similar stalls with endless deals on alcoholic beverages or stroll along the beach and promenade. Coney Island also has its very own aquarium, and although it includes a ‘4D’ cinema screen, it is probably more of an educational than entertaining visit.

Musicals

World-renowned Broadway shows are themselves the subject of many songs and films. Broadway itself diagonally crosses Manhattan, and the stretch containing the many of its most famous theatres is close to Times Square. Musical adaptations of books, films and plays are frequently shown, so it’s more than likely you will recognise a few of the shows. At any one time there are upwards of thirty different musicals showing on Broadway, allowing for plenty of well-known classics such as 'The Lion King' and 'The Phantom of the Opera' to sit alongside newer adaptations and original shows, so you can judge for yourself whether something is going to be the next big hit or a total flop.

Celebrity Culture

Travel on a Screentour, which takes you around the locations of shows such as 'Friends', 'Seinfeld' and 'Spiderman'. 'Resting' actors and actresses act as guides. They even offer tips on how to get tickets for the audience of popular TV shows. Other places great for celebrity spotting include sushi restaurant Nobu. Frequented by the likes of Madonna, Jon Bon Jovi and Naomi Campbell, and late night celeb hang outs include the overly glamorous GoldBar, where P Diddy has been known to hold parties, and The Boom Boom Room on Washington Street, with a glass-floored outdoor terrace and hot tub in the middle of the bar.
