New York City


Whether it’s your first visit or you’ve been here a hundred times, you’ll feel the excitement as soon as you arrive.

 

 

With its famous skyline and more than 8 million people from every corner of the world, New York City has an unmistakable energy that attracts millions of visitors each year. Each of the five boroughs has a distinctive flavor, and 300 neighborhoods have unique identities. From world-class dining to shopping, nightlife, and fine and performing arts, there’s always something new to see and do. You may stay in New York City for only a few days, but New York City will stay with you forever.


Iconic attractions range from the Empire State Building to the Bronx Zoo. Take in a Broadway show, a concert at Lincoln Center, or the view from Rockefeller Center’s Top of the Rock. For a photo op with the Statue of Liberty, take a Circle Line scenic cruise. You can also get a great view of the skyline with a free ride on the Staten Island Ferry.


Bring the kids and ferry over to two new parks—Governors Island and Brooklyn Bridge Park—for bike riding, free concerts and picnicking. Catch a Yankees or Mets game at their new stadiums. Or enjoy a minor-league game—the Brooklyn Cyclones (Mets’ affiliates) play near Coney Island, while the Staten Island Yankees play near the St. George Ferry Terminal. Both stadiums feature cheap seats and waterfront views.


Explore world-famous art museums like the Met and the Guggenheim, or galleries in neighborhoods from Chelsea to Williamsburg. Shopping options range from Fifth Avenue to Brooklyn’s Park Slope and DUMBO. Find surprising market buys in Chinatown, Union Square West, and West 30th and 39th Street Fleas. Head to Century 21 for discounts on fashions by top designers or WIRED for tech-savvy gadgets.


Hungry? With 20,000 restaurants, NYC offers endless options. Follow fashionable chefs to hotspots like RedFarm, or get a slice of real New York pizza. Indulge in the perfect slice of cheesecake at Junior’s or try the pastrami at Katz’s, the City’s oldest deli
