The Greatest City in the World !11 January 2015
There is no place like New York City! Whether you’re looking for amazing sightseeing, high class museums, fine dining, fabulous shopping, hip neighborhoods, renowned architecture, or the best clubs and bars – this city has it all!
Most people, when visiting New York, head straight for Manhattan, which is actually only one of New York’s five boroughs. With an abundance of famous landmarks such as the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square and the Rockefeller Center with the Top of the Rock, Manhattan is the obvious choice for first time visitors. This part of New York is made up of many individual neighborhoods that all have their own character and attractions. TriBeCa, Upper West Side, East Village, Harlem, Greenwich Village, Bowery, and NoHo are all worth devoting a few hours of your time to – if not more.
Interested in art and culture? Check out Museum Mile! The renowned MoMA and Metropolitan museums should definitely be on your to-do list, but a visit to Chelsea, known for its many art galleries and the unique High Line park is recommended too.

This bridge connects Manhattan to Brooklyn, another New York borough with up and coming areas such as Williamsburg where you can find great shops, stylish bars and fantastic food.
