New York City
Welcome to New York
Home to one of the most famous skylines in the world, New York has so much to offer : unmissable architecture, stunning skyscrapers, many of the world’s finest collections of arts and antiquities, seventy-five Michelin-starred restaurants, the legendary theatres of Broadway, the biggest names in shopping, and it’s vast, majestic parks. The city that never sleeps is truly one of the world’s greatest urban delights.
When to visit
January and February can be bitterly cold but they are the less busy months for theatre visits. Broadway Week in January and September offers 2-4-1 tickets. Between April and June, there are few crowds, it’s warm and the parks are in bloom. June is Pride month with the celebratory march on the last Sunday.
Summer is hot, a good time to explore the islands, visit Coney Island beach and sail around The Statue of Liberty. The trendy High Line, a public park built on an elevated freight rail line above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side, is the place to be seen in the summer. Autumn is good for avoiding queues for the main attractions. It’s busy between Thanksgiving, 22nd of November, and Christmas. Great for bagging bargains, Black Friday is officially the first Christmas shopping day.
