Exploring New York

New York is one of only two true Alpha cities (London is the other one) and it earns that accolade through its unswerving vitality and sheer number of attractions, restaurants and hotels. Though fully recovered post-911, the Big Apple never forgets and today sits a fitting memorial to the Twin Towers at the existing World Trade Center site. In all areas are a variety of lodging options ranging from the affordable to the height of luxury with all amenities.

Manhattan Island is where it’s at in New York City. It is home to the bulk of the action and features the best hotels with the best amenities. This famous borough is one of iconic sights and wide boulevards—think Fifth Avenue—and the area is always abuzz. Manhattan is a collection of funky neighbourhoods, while the other four boroughs that make up the city—the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island—each have their own flavour and districts.

Sights nearby

The Big Apple is loaded with highlights, from the world renowned Empire State Building and famous art museums, to the massive Central Park. Sights can be found in all boroughs, though Manhattan Island has the pick of them.

Central Park
New York’s iconic park is a major go-to point for visitors and residents. Set in the middle of Manhattan Island along Fifth Avenue, it covers many city blocks and is overlooked by big hotels, including the highly rated four-star Park Central New York. It is ideal for strolling, jogging, rollerblading, cycling, or picnicking (during the day) and has a host of attractions. Chief among these are the Belvedere Castle, the zoo and Shakespeare Garden.

Empire State Building
From iconic park to iconic building, the Empire State was at one time the highest skyscraper in the country, at 102 storeys. With its distinct art deco architecture (it hails from the 1930s) and many onsite attractions, it is a big hit with tourists, especially the observation floors which give unrivalled city views. There is also a fun ride on the second floor, the New York Skyride, and the tower is well lit at night. The three-star Hotel Stanford is one of the better priced accommodation options near the Empire State Building.

Museum of Modern Art
Situated between the Empire State Building and Central Park is the world famous MoMA art gallery. This classy museum features the USA’s most prominent modern art collection and was set up by one Abby Rockefeller. Material covers the last two centuries and touring exhibitions are frequent and popular. The building itself is eye-catching, with its soaring atrium, glass walls and sculpture garden.

Eating and drinking and shopping nearby

You can buy everything here, from cheap rubbish at flea markets in the lesser boroughs, to the latest designer wear in downtown boutiques on Madison Avenue. Fifth Avenue and Soho are also shopping magnets, the latter also popular for its chic bars. Restaurants also run the gamut, from your ever-present hotdog stand to unending fast food options and restaurants that require months of reservation time. Nightlife is equally impressive; the city never sleeps! Head along Broadway for theatre, where the Hotel Belleclaire resides.

Public transport

The public transport system in New York is excellent. It’s straightforward to get about most of it, as the city is on a grid system of blocks, streets and avenues. The subway covers the entire city and while a little cranky in places, you never have to wait long for the next train. Buses also go out to the boroughs, while the classic Yellow cabs are always around. Ferries serve Staten Island, Ellis Island, Liberty Park and other points of interest in the harbour.
