New York City

The thrill of the Big Apple

Visit New York City

Introduction

New York is city of superlatives. Most of the major sights are to be found within Manhattan, where world-class museums, restaurants and theatres line to busy streets of Midtown and Central Park. The Statue of Liberty is an enduring symbol of American freedom, while the Brooklyn Bridge and the Empire State Building are enough to get even the most camera shy visitor reaching for the selfie stick. Visitors wanting slice of local life shouldn't overlook New York's four other boroughs – the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island, where the headlines give way for a thrilling array of locals-favourite eateries and neighbourhoods alive with the city's vast cultural mix.

Chinatown and Little Italy are both colourful examples of these, while TriBeCa, SoHo, Greenwich Village and East Village are all worthy of exploration. And what trip to the Big Apple would be complete without a visit to Central Park?
