New York City has lots to offer, and fitting everything into one trip would be nearly impossible. Feel the buzz of Times Square, admire the Statue of Liberty, or marvel at masterpieces at renowned art museums like the MET, MoMA or Guggenheim. Luxury holidays in New York are an experience you will never forget - and one you’ll certainly want to repeat.
As the heart of the Big Apple, Manhattan is a natural starting point for holidays in New York City. Amongst the towering skyscrapers are some of the world's most visited attractions. Head to the thriving, neon-lit Times Square, take a timeout in Central Park, tour the iconic Grand Central Terminal, or admire the view from the top of the Empire State Building.
Manhattan has also played an important role in America’s past. You can visit historically important sites like the 9/11 Memorial, the Stonewall Inn, where the modern gay rights movement began, or even Theodore Roosevelt’s birthplace. Or, give your wallet a workout and head down to 5th Avenue - one of the most famous shopping streets in the world. End your day by grabbing dinner in Chinatown or Little Italy, and then head to the Theatre District to see a Broadway show.
While you could easily spend your whole trip in Manhattan, New York’s other boroughs are well worth a visit. Just across the bridge from Manhattan lies Brooklyn, renowned for its artsy vibe and hip neighbourhoods. Explore the fusion-dining scene and the boutique shopping across the district, and then meet the animals at the New York Aquarium or Prospect Park Zoo. Whether you choose to ride old-fashioned roller coasters at Coney Island or snap a pic of New York's remarkable skyline from the Brooklyn Promenade, holidays to New York have plenty to offer.
