New York: The City that Never Sleeps
New York City is made up of five boroughs: Manhattan, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx. They’re linked by numerous bridges and tunnels and each has its own personality.
Manhattan is home to most of the things you probably think of when you think of New York City: Central Park, the Empire State Building, Broadway, and Rockefeller Center, just to name a few. It’s also the place to go for hundreds of world class restaurants and museums.
Manhattan itself is divided into several distinct neighborhoods, and you’re sure to find one that suits you. Greenwich Village for a taste of Bohemia, Little Italy for some delectable eats, Washington Heights for the views, plus Chelsea and the Upper and Lower East Sides.
Cross the Brooklyn Bridge and see why Brooklyn has become one of the most popular neighborhoods around. From unique art galleries to hipster restaurants to beautiful brownstones, Brooklyn provides and eclectic mix of nostalgia and modern-day cool.
Staten Island is the place to go for some fresh air and open spaces you might not find in other parts of the city. Hop in the Staten Island Ferry and spend the day hiking among the beautiful fall foliage, go to the Staten Island Zoo, or take in some sun at South Beach.
Head to Queens, New York City’s largest borough. Head to Sunnyside for some hip and trendy bars and restaurants or spend the day in the sun at Rockaway Beach. Queens is also home to the city’s second largest park, Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. Add the neighborhoods of Astoria and Ridgewood to your itinerary to see how much variety Queens has to offer.
Finally, plan to stop in the Bronx where the kids will love the Bronx Zoo and the sports fan can take in Yankee Stadium. Add the New York Botanical Garden, some cool places to shop, and plenty of delicious restaurant options and enjoy a whole day here.
