You know what they say about a New York minute? Let’s hope it holds, because you’ve got a lot to do. To help you navigate your New York holiday, check out our cool NYC car hire options or go underground with one of the best subway systems in the country. The borough of Manhattan is anchored around Central Park. In this famous green space, get in touch with your inner artisan at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, or go full space geek at the American Museum of Natural History. For the more experimental stuff, check out MoMA PS1, the Museum of Modern Art’s edgier little sister, located in Long Island City, Queens. Speaking of edgier, we know Broadway is the place to see award-grabbing shows, but never underestimate off-Broadway ensembles. Top off your trip at the High Line, a railroad track-turned park that “runs” from Hell’s Kitchen through Chelsea in Manhattan. From there, you’ll have the best views of some old buildings, like Rockefeller Center and The Empire State Building.
SoHo, Tribeca and Nolita in Lower Manhattan have a corner on the NYC shopping scene, but here’s a secret: Cross the East River to Brooklyn and shop your way from Williamsburg to Bushwick, where you can sift through up-and-coming designer boutiques and vintage shops. Take home a bit of the five boroughs. Now, that’s our kind of New York packages.
On any street corner, you’ll find someone’s favourite café. If you wanna get some dim sum, you’ve got to go to Flushing, Queens, and forget about low-carb diets. New Yorkers think they make the best pizza, doughnuts and beer in the world, and there’s really only one way to find out. Grab a hot slice and a cold brewskie. For science!
When it comes to the nightlife, you’ll want to be in the outer boroughs, like Astoria, Queens, or Bushwick, Brooklyn. Beyond Manhattan, you’ll find a more house shows, bars with a dash of sass, and artsy-arse dance clubs.
