New York City

For high-flying luxury and an amazing holiday, New York City is top of many people’s bucket lists and, for those that have been, is a place that they are eager to return back to.
 
So where do we start with this magical city? Split up into five boroughs, it is a playground of immense buildings and tourist hotspots that will ensure a five-star stay. Manhattan is where the main action is, with many of the iconic landmarks being housed here. The Statue of Liberty, Central Park, the Empire State Building and the shopping havens of Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue are all must-sees for first timers. Oh, and how could we forget the dazzling lights of Times Square and amazing shows on Broadway.
 
SoHo, otherwise known as the cultural district of Manhattan, is home to eclectic and unique hotels as well as amazing museums that the area is known for. Bars and restaurants adorn the cobbled streets making it perfect for sophisticated cocktails in the evening. However, if you want to party hard, the Meatpacking District is the place to go for bass dropping clubs that will have you partying ‘til dawn.
 
The borough of Brooklyn is where the bustling art scene can be found and is one of the most culturally diverse. Coney Island is the main attraction here, comprising a beach and amazing fun fair that’s perfect for families and those wanting some thrills. Need somewhere to take a break for some lunch? Head to the original Nathan’s for a true taste of America. The annual hot dog eating contest held on 4th July’s also a sight to be seen.
 
Staten Island and Queens are definitely the more residential of the five boroughs but if timed right, you can enjoy the annual US Open in Queens and spread the love. Sports enthusiasts will also want to check out Yankee Stadium in The Bronx for the chance to see some amazing American baseball. If you’re a die hard fan, be sure to check out Monument Park with statues honouring Yankee players from the past.
 
New York City is the ideal urban break complete with boutique hotels that exude glamour. Explore the sights and sounds of the grand hustle and bustle whether you’re a solo traveller, couple, family, larger group or visiting on business. You’re sure to enjoy the bright lights as soon as you touch down at John F. Kennedy Airport.

THINGS TO DO IN New York City

New York in a nutshell

Soak Up The Culture
 
  • A trip to New York City wouldn’t be complete without seeing the Statue of Liberty. A short ferry ride from either Battery Park or Liberty State Park will see you climb the 354 steps up to the crown where phenomenal views of the Big Apple are sure to amaze and astound you. You can also hop back on the ferry and go to Ellis Island and learn more about the immigration history that the state is so well-known for.
     
  • Even more picturesque vistas are viewable from the Empire State Building. Just 15-minutes from Times Square, make sure you wrap up a little, as you can expect the observation deck to be very windy!
     
  • Want a bit of a slower pace? Central Park in Manhattan covers 843 acres boasting 25,000 trees, 250 acres of lawns and 58 miles of walking paths. Ideal for an evening stroll or a lunchtime picnic, you’re sure to find a nice, quiet spot to relax in. A zoo and aquarium are also popular haunts making it ideal for animal-enthusiasts too.

     
  • Crowned the ‘World’s Best Restaurant’ in 2017, the Eleven Madison Park restaurant is definitely worth a reservation. Tree arrangements, high ceilings and exuberant furnishings compliment the local menu using New York farm and sea ingredients for dishes of oyster, lobster, duck and beef. Make sure you’re prepared though as there are waiting lists for a table.
     
  • Balthazar is an iconic restaurant found in the heart of SoHo. French and American bistro food is served surrounded by beautiful Parisian murals and mirrored walls. A bakery is on-site for eating pastries on the go and don’t be surprised if celebrities such as Uma Thurman and Gwyneth Paltrow pop by for a slice of the action too.
     
  • Being in New York, you can expect to find secret havens that will soon become your new favourite. Reading and food enthusiasts will love Housing Works Bookstore Café for two floors of fiction, non-fiction and everything in between. A non-profit café is also housed here where all of the proceeds from the eatery go to charities that support homeless people living with HIV/AIDS.

     
After Dark Destinations
 
  • Enjoy sky-high views of New York from 230 Fifth Rooftop Bar. A terrace garden and glamorous interiors makes every drink and cocktail as exuberant as the last. Light dishes are available should you start to feel peckish with the weekends being a blast due to the plethora of 80s, 90s and house music blaring from the speakers.
     
  • The Hard Rock Café in New York is an iconic venue for lovers of music memorabilia, amazing interiors and American cuisine to tantalise your taste buds. An outdoor space is brilliant for seeing the sights of Times Square, with the central restaurant seating more than 700. An on-site shop is also available should you want some souvenirs to remember your time here.
     
  • If you prefer more of a laugh after dark, the Gotham Comedy Club is one of New York’s best venues. Comics such as Larry David, Dave Chappelle and Roseanne Barr have all graced the stage since its opening in 1996, and the iconic site has even played host to shows such as Curb Your Enthusiasm and the Jerry Seinfield 2002 Miramax film Comedian.
