New York is arguably the world’s most renowned travel destination of the USA and a city like no other.  To some people it’s known as ‘The City of Dreams,’ ‘The Big Apple,’ or ‘The City That Never Sleeps.’

The diversity and vibrancy of this metropolitan city is extraordinary.  You can find an eclectic choice of culture, fashion, music, food, art and people roaming the streets of central Manhattan and its surrounding boroughs. 

One of the many iconic landmarks and attractions New York boasts can be commonly found in the likes of films, music videos and artwork particularly the Manhattan skyline.  Towering skyscrapers, gigantic bridges and scenic parks are a common sight around the metropolis. 

Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, the Rockefeller Center and Empire State Building are the most well-known amongst the large list of tourist attractions that New York has to offer. 

You may wish to pay an emotional visit to Ground Zero, the place where the extremely tall twin towers once stood.  Without question there is still an ambience of grief that remains with a mixture of surrealism at the thought of this area in ruins following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.    

In NYC you have an extensive range of cuisines available at your convenience from sophisticated restaurants to cheap and cheerful eateries you can find yourself tasting any world delicacies. 

One restaurant worth eating in is The View.  The name compliments the fact it’s a revolving rooftop restaurant that overlook breath-taking sights of the city and is best seen at night-time when the spectacular skyline lights up to reveal a new found beauty.

The Subway is an experience in itself but if you’re used to the everyday manic of the London Underground then this will all too familiar and you’ll soon find yourself easily getting around the city.

Regardless of whether you’re an avid traveller or enjoy experiencing and discovering new places, everyone should take a trip to New York City at least once in their life.
