New York, the city of endless possibilities
New York is the most exciting city in the world, there is always something new to discover!
Even if it is the first time you are coming to New York, you will feel as if you somewhat already knew the city as you walk through the streets. A dream come true for men and women from all over the world, this melting pot of more than eight million inhabitants unfolds before your eyes: bike messengers and yellow taxis, residential streets lined with brownstones and their splendid staircases…
Really visiting New York is enjoying a bagel & lox, wandering the streets with a coffee in hand or with a slice of pizza from Joe's. Another part of the experience is jumping in a taxi towards Chelsea and mingling with New Yorkers in an art gallery or heading to one of the many speakeasies – trendy bars that bring you back to the time of the Prohibition – on the Lower East Side for a memorable happy hour. Hungry for a midnight snack? Mobile apps like Seamless allow you to order food at any hour.
Shopping addresses are plentiful, from 5th Avenue's luxury stores to SoHo's young designer boutiques. Take advantage of the pop-up sample sales (often at Chelsea Market) where New Yorkers come to supplement their wardrobes with designer pieces often at 75% off.
Every neighborhood offers a unique experience: walk along the highline in the Meatpacking district, snack on a Sicilian cannolo at the historic Caffe Reggio in the West Village, try a burger at Shake Shack in Hell's Kitchen – where all types of cuisines from around the world meet –, recharge your batteries in nature at Central Park or cross the Hudson to sip on a delicious coffee at Brooklyn Roasting Company.
During the summer weekends, do not miss Smorgasburg, an open-air food market in Brooklyn that attracts fans of homemade cuisine, featuring up to 100 restaurants with a stunning view of the Manhattan skyline. In the winter, visit museums – from the most popular, like the Met (Metropolitan Museum of Art), to the less well-known, such as the Museum of the American Gangster, that tells the story of organized crime in a historic building and speakeasy.
On Broadway, there is no shortage of options to catch a play, a show, a jazz or blues concert, or spend a delightful evening on a trendy rooftop. For sporting events fans, seeing a basketball game at Madison Square Garden or baseball game at Yankee Stadium is a must.
The possibilities are unlimited… Welcome to New York!
