NEW YORK OVERVIEW

New York is undeniably the stuff that movies are made of. Iconic landmarks, thrilling theatre, rooftop bars, live music, world-class dining, art galleries, museums, beautiful gardens, dancing, shopping… what more could you possibly ask for? Boasting one of the most instantly recognisable skylines in the world, the ‘Big Apple’ promises an intoxicating atmosphere that will leave you wanting more. Times Square, Broadway, The Empire State Building, Fifth Avenue… they’re all found here on the ‘the island’. The Upper West Side, bordered by Central Park, is the home to Lincoln Center and the centre of performing arts and culture with a trip to the opera, ballet and the American Museum of Natural History. Whilst the Upper East Side is home to world-class cultural institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Lower Manhattan, where New York began, is now a blend of old colonial churches and gleaming skyscrapers with the 9/11 memorial, South Street Seaport and Stone Street for great restaurants. Finally, in bohemian Greenwich Village you’ll discover a community of late-night coffee houses, cafes, bars, restaurants, experimental theatres and music clubs.
