Hang out in Central Park: Smack bang in the middle of a concrete jungle, strolling through the big city’s back garden’s a bit like walking into an episode of Friends. Play Chandler (or Monica) as you join joggers, lovers and dog-walkers in the world’s most happening sky-scraper lined green space. The audience can’t wait. Can you?
Breeze over Brooklyn Bridge: Think you know the New York skyline? Ditch that cheap print and think again. From Brooklyn Bridge, you’ll enjoy the kind of panoramic views that’ll make you feel less zero, more De Niro. Bike it, drive it or just admire it. You’ll be a wiser guy for it.
Strut through SoHo: Add the Jay-Z factor to your trip with a tour of SoHo, Manhattan’s labyrinth of shops, bars and all things A-list friendly. With the world’s most exclusive boutiques and restaurants on your doorstep, it won’t hurt to flex that plastic. Just try your best not to get papped.
Conquer the Empire State: Soaring into the sky like a concrete-clad testimonial to all things epic, a trip to the top of Empire State Building’s guaranteed to enhance your bragging rights by 500%. Rise up the world’s most ridiculously long lift shaft. Then suck in the view. Life’s tough at the top. Don’t let it go to your head.
Check out the most famous sites, like the Empire State Building, Ground Zero and the 9/11 Memorial, the Statue of Liberty and Times Square, just to name a few. Obviously, you’ll want to leave plenty of time for some serious shopping at one (or more!) of New York’s famed retail landmarks: Fifth Avenue, Madison Avenue, Canal Street, Bleecker Street, Herald Square, the Historic Orchard Street Shopping District, Union Square and the Diamond District. Catch a Broadway show or spend an afternoon browsing the collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Make plans if you must, but be prepared to let the City take you where it will.
The fastest and most convenient way to get around whilst on holiday in New York is by subway. You’ll find a station around - under? - every corner, and the city’s grid layout makes navigating the subway system quite straightforward. You can also take a taxi for short trips if you know exactly where you want to go, but to get a real feel for the city, nothing beats walking!
If you’ve ever wondered what “spoilt for choice” really means, spend a few days in New York and you’ll understand. When it comes to things to do, the city is jam packed with something for everyone. From museums and galleries to theatre and live music, great restaurants and clubs to world-class street food, stately historic landmarks to stunning modern architecture...there’s no doubt that a New York city break will keep you busy!
