Visit New York City
New York is city of superlatives. Most of the major sites are to be found with Manhattan, with glittering shops, museums and theatres in Midtown and along Central Park. The Statue of Liberty is an enduring symbol of New York, while the Brooklyn Bridge and the Empire State Building are two other well-known landmarks. Visitors wanting slice of local life shouldn't overlook New York's five distinct boroughs, Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island.
Chinatown and Little Italy are both colourful ethnic neighbourhoods, 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?
