New York: Introduction
We love NYC!
New York is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week of pure metropolitan life. As the “City that Never Sleeps”, taxi cabs crisscross the bustling streets, trek over vast bridges, and zip in & out of busy tunnels into dozens of different neighbourhoods and boroughs – each with their own unique personality.
The city has something for everyone and no matter what you seek, New York is sure to have it. Almost a permanent fixture as the backdrop for so many popular films and television programs, it’s no wonder New York is overflowing with iconic sights recognizable around the world. Take the Staten Island ferry for a ride in New York Harbor where you’ll marvel at the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the incomparable New York skyline. Head on over to Brooklyn and have a perfect summer day at Coney Island where you can enjoy the amusement rides, boardwalk games, sunny beach, and yummy “Coney” hot dogs. During baseball season, catch a Mets game over at the new CitiField in Queens or a classic Yankee’s game at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. Families will enjoy a day out at the ever popular Bronx Zoo – one of the best city zoos in the country.
In Manhattan, often times referred to as just “The City,” sights and sounds and flavours will astound even the most seasoned traveller. Take in a summer concert or play in Central Park. Shop until your heart’s content up and down Madison Avenue. You can refuel at either famous New York eateries, quaint local cafes, or grab a slice of pizza or a hotdog off a street vendor. Take in the city view from high atop the Empire State Building. And end your evening with the lights and shows on Broadway. New York will still have more for you to see and do tomorrow!
