A star of the silver screen, you’ll recognise the streets, sights and sounds of New York City even if you’ve never visited. From art and theatre to shopping and sport, the Big Apple is top of its game.
New York city breaks can be as diverse as they are iconic. Stroll around the neighbourhoods to take it all in, looking up as much as ahead to admire the vertigo-inducing buildings. In the Financial District, for example, you’ll find America’s tallest building, the One World Trade Center, with a poignant 9/11 Memorial. Or, explore Chinatown’s narrow streets, stopping for dumplings or noodles before continuing to arty SoHo. Other exciting neighbourhoods include the East and West Villages, Tribeca and Brooklyn.
Galleries big and small are dotted around the city’s streets and you’ll barely scratch the surface of what’s available on a short break in New York. Must-visits include the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the neighbourhood of Chelsea, which is known for its numerous galleries.
Prefer to shop ‘til you drop? You could easily spend your whole New York city break racking up some charges on your credit card, if you so wished. Big-name department stores such as Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s and Saks are packed to the rafters with clothes, accessories and cosmetics, while SoHo is home to designer boutiques. If you’re looking for hip boutiques, vintage shops and flea markets, Williamsburg is the place to go.
It’s not surprising that the city that never sleeps has a pumping nightlife scene that caters to every whim, too. Choose between expertly mixed cocktails in a classy bar, the latest Broadway hit, opera or cinema performances, cool jazz clubs, clubbing until the early hours under a disco ball, and much more. Then go to bed looking forward to a New York tradition the following morning: a hearty brunch.
