From the top of the Empire State Building to the subterranean bars and bagel shops of the Lower East Side, New York is a city that energises and inspires in equal measure. Spend a day exploring stylish boutiques in Soho, sample Brooklyn’s best pizzas and take a tour through leafy Central Park. See avant-garde contemporary art at MOMA and travel through time in the galleries of the MET. For a bird’s-eye view of the city, walk among the skyscrapers on the New York High Line – the city’s garden in the sky, stretching from Chelsea to the trendy Meatpacking district.
For a taste of seaside kitsch, Coney Island’s colourful carnival atmosphere provides plenty of thrills, from roller coasters to concerts, craft beer to classic Coney hot dogs. And no trip to New York would be complete without trying a few local delicacies. Seek out sticky, sweet doughnuts, authentic Mexican street food, and some of the best coffee this side of the Atlantic.
When the light begins to fade, New Yorkers come out to play. Discover thronging Times Square and join our tour of the bright lights of Broadway, stopping afterwards to catch a show. When the curtain falls, follow the locals to dive bars, speakeasies, and rooftop temples for mixology. After all, this is the city that never sleeps.
