Affectionately referred to as the centre of the universe, New York City boasts a cosmic array of life, prospects and opportunity.
Delve into the neon night of Times Square or experience the bustle of Grand Central Terminal at the beating heart of this truly immortal city. Freewheel at Coney Island amusement park or visit the earthy artistic neighbourhoods in Brooklyn and the surrounding harbour area. The infamous Statue of Liberty still stands proud along this frivolous harbour side as a beacon of prosperity for the millions of immigrants who have come and gone over the centuries. Further along is a sobering reminder of New York’s serious side at the 9/11 Memorial and World Trade Center Ground Zero. New York City is as much the epicentre of culture and creativity as it is the pinnacle of hope, freedom and ambition for millions of dreamers who come to take a bite from The Big Apple.
With its five boroughs — Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx — eight million people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds call New City home. In the cultural hubs of Chinatown and Little Italy, you will find a slice of authentic cuisine, ranging from the Far East to the southern shores of Europe. New York is a city with its arms wide open — a city where all areas of diversity are actively celebrated, from African American music in Harlem to one of the largest Orthodox Jewish communities outside of Israel in Brooklyn.
The vast and intricate subway network that makes New York famous ensures that visitors need not worry about getting around, both above and below ground. Purchase your Metrocard and refill as and when necessary or simply take a stroll through the diverse neighbourhoods on foot to soak up the east coast sunshine during the day.
Due to the simple grid system, visitors can easily find their way to major attractions such as the Rockefeller Center, Chrysler Building, Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library in Midtown East. The welcoming nature of local New Yorkers ensures that assistance is always at hand should you lose your way.
New York is a city of many talents, boasting a rich cultural and social scene. For the culture buffs the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Opera are a must see. Whether you have come to peruse the many galleries or experience the unique New York nightlife in the many bars and clubs, you won’t be disappointed in the city that never sleeps.
