About New York
The epicentre of New York life is Manhattan Island, an absorbing city-within-a-city, full of variety and excitement. Amongst the bedlam Central Park, the Hudson River and Long Island offer a sanctuary from the absorbing 24-hour mayhem.
With over 18,000 restaurants, countless bars, world-class museums and more than 10,000 stores brimming with brand names and bargains, there is nowhere else on earth quite like New York, an extraordinary city which really does offer something for everyone.
Where do you begin in a city, when even having breakfast in a deli is considered an experience. A trip to the potent symbol of New York, and America in general, The Statue of Liberty is a start followed by a blast of icy cold air on top of The Empire State Building.
Burn off some energy or take a horse and carriage ride in Central Park and wander back towards downtown as you window shop along Fifth Avenue. Listen to the shouts of ‘BUY BUY BUY, SELL SELL SELL’ and watch from the public viewing gallery in the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street, as billions of dollars in shares are traded every day in furious action. ‘Hang Out’ in Greenwich Village and track down rarities in the record shops and bookstores. Make your way on to the Brooklyn Bridge for an unforgettable view of the Manhattan skyline or take a ride on the Staten Island ferry for one of New York’s best sight seeing bargains.
Go ice skating at the Rockefeller Center or Central Park or take in a show along broadway. Visit Macy’s, take the subway, catch a cab. Everything in New York seems worth doing, but whatever you decide - the basic Manhattan message is to DO IT NOW!
