With a winning combination of iconic sights, world-class art and shopping opportunities galore, it's no wonder so many people book flights to New York…
Central Park is a must-visit on any New York break - whether you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city in Beatles-themed Strawberry Fields, rent a rowing boat or take the family for a ride on the famous vintage carousel.
And, of course, there's the world-famous Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty, which seem familiar as they have featured in so many films and TV shows.
Many visitors fly to New York for a shopping break. If retail therapy is top of your to-do list, head to stores such as Bloomingdales, Macy's and Saks. If you are after some culture, book tickets for a Broadway show and take in an exhibition or two at galleries such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
And then there's the food. As New York is such a multi-cultural city, you can munch your way around the planet’s menu, whether you want a pretzel on the go or plan to take your time over a sumptuous feast in Little Italy.
There's so much to do in New York that one of the toughest decisions you will face on your trip is what to do now and what to save until your next holiday. Never fear, when you search for the cheapest flights to New York on TravelSupermarket, you can start planning the second visit (or third, or fourth, or fifth… hey, who’s counting anyway?).

Cheap flights to New York from London take off frequently, with daily flights also jetting off from Manchester. Learn more…
Direct flights to New York take visitors from the UK to the city in around eight hours. The three main airports are John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK), Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), and La Guardia (LGA). London to New York flights and Manchester to New York flights mostly arrive at JFK airport.
Whichever airport you arrive into in New York, there are plenty of transport links to take you to your destination. Here are some of the options...
JFK Airport is in Queens, just 15 miles from central Manhattan. It is well served by transport links to hotels and central attractions. Options include hopping into a yellow taxi, taking the AirTrain and travelling by bus - both public and private bus companies run services from New York's main airport.
Newark Liberty International Airport is in New Jersey, 14 miles from central Manhattan. Again, transport options include yellow cabs, the AirTrain and public or private bus services.
For both airports, if you are travelling in a group, a taxi is probably the best option as you can split the cost of the trip and, if you are tired after a long flight, the thought of lugging bags on and off public transport might not appeal.
Alternatively, if you plan to explore the areas outside New York City, car hire could be a good option. Pre-book car hire with TravelSupermarket, pick up your vehicle at the airport and set off on your American adventure.
New York is home to a number of neighbourhoods, all with their own character. Discover your ideal spot with our guide on where to stay…
It's important to decide what you want from your stay before you book your accommodation in New York. Remember that the city is big and sprawling so being near to a subway station will give you the flexibility to travel.
Staying in Midtown Manhattan is a good option for first-timers who want to cram a lot of sightseeing into their trip and be within walking distance of landmarks such as the Empire State Building and Central Park. If you want to be right in the middle of the action, Times Square will reward you with the sparkling lights for which New York is famous. However, tourists flock here so it can be crowded and noisy.
If you have children or just want to get more of a taste for how New Yorkers live, you might want to consider a neighbourhood such as Greenwich Village or Soho, while those into art and fashion could look at Chelsea and the Meatpacking District. Another contender for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of central Manhattan is Brooklyn, which also has cheaper accommodation options (bear in mind you’ll have to travel to reach the main tourist spots).
