Travel Guide
New York
One of the world’s most exciting cities positively shines with shopping, shows, museums, sports, and the beautiful and spacious Central Park.

Come to New York City, famous worldwide as a sophisticated center of arts, entertainment and much, much more.

Stroll, skate or jog on the 58 miles (93 kilometers) of Central Park, with a lake, skating rinks, a zoo, statues and numerous playgrounds. Visit the American Museum of Natural History on its western border and Metropolitan Museum of Art on the eastern side.

Walk south to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and Radio City Music Hall, where the Rockettes put on high-kicking dance performances. In winter, skate beneath the statue of Atlas in front of Rockefeller Center. Take a fast elevator to the top of the Empire State Building for city views. Shop or window-shop at Fifth Avenue boutiques and major luxury stores.

See a new or long-running musical or play on Broadway, which is not just an avenue, but the entire Theater District of more than 40 theaters. Entertainment continues in Off-Broadway and Off-Off-Broadway theaters as well as comedy clubs and jazz and piano bars. Walk around Times Square, glowing with neon lights and filled with visitors day and night.

If you’re more interested in sports, catch the Yankees or Mets playing baseball, the Giants or Jets playing football or the Islanders or Rangers playing hockey. Yankee Stadium, Madison Square Garden and other venues also host concerts and other events.

In the Meatpacking District, climb to the High Line Park, an elevated former train track lined with statues and plants. Farther south, visit the National September 11 Memorial, honoring heroes and victims of the 2001 terrorist attack. The One World Observatory tops the 1,776-foot (541-meter) tall One World Trade Center, built where the twin towers of the World Trade Center complex formerly stood.

Take a harbor tour on the Hudson River to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, where over 12 million immigrants were welcomed to New York City to start new lives in the United States.

"It’s quite wonderful and very centric. I only wish watching tv was less complicated and that they offered more towels for drying hands or a dish. It was very clean, the bathroom is nice and the beds and pillows are comfortable. I’d stay again."
