The City that Never Sleeps

New York is an iconic city that many of us already ‘know’ even if we’ve never been there.  Used as a back drop for countless TV programmes and films, the sights and sounds of New York are already familiar to us.

The possibilities for sight seeing in New York City are endless. It is made up of the five boroughs of Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, Staten Island and Manhattan – each one completely different in atmosphere and look.

The city is home to some 7.2 million people, including significant populations of Spanish, Irish, Italian, Chinese, Russians and Jewish. This eclectic mix of the world's cultures and nationalities means you can get absolutely anything you want, anytime. Dubbed as the city that never sleeps, you can literally eat anytime and even when you’ve given up and turned in for the night, the city below will still be buzzing.

You can choose to explore on foot, by famous yellow cab or by jumping on and off the subway. But whichever you choose you’ll be blown away by this incredible city. One minute you can be in a museum, the next marvelling at the Statue of Liberty from the Staten Island Ferry, or relaxing on a bench in the leafy oasis that is Central Park. New York is an exciting mix that will keep you enthralled – where else can you see Broadway and baseball in the same day?

Most people can only take so much and if after a few days of museums, bars, galleries and clubs you could do with a break, then guess what? New York can provide that for you too. There are the National Parks of Upstate New York or the beaches of Long Island. Whatever you are searching for, you’ll find it in New York. More info
