About New York

Travel to New York to explore the city that is the epicenter of the arts, the capital of dining and shopping, and the city that never sleeps. New York City is an urban wanderer’s delight. New York is a city in constant flux and every district offers a different version of the concrete jungle. If possible, we encourage travelers to experience and explore The Big Apple on foot; it’s the best way to understand the locals as well as the layout of the city. Be sure to hit the must-sees (the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Times Square, etc.) and explore off the beaten path.
