This section has all the information you need to know about New York. The city has 5 boroughs – Manhattan, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island – that offer a virtual smorgasbord of international culture. It’s called the city that never sleeps, and for good reason, because you can find something to do at any time of day or night. 

LaGuardia (LGA), John F. Kennedy International (JFK), and Newark Liberty International (EWR) are New York's major airports. New York's streets are mostly organised in a numbered grid pattern, making navigation easy. The subway system is comprehensive and user-friendly, while taxis are plentiful and affordable. New Yorkers are friendly and proud of their city, so don't hesitate to ask a stranger on the street for directions. This is a cultural melting pot where all races, religions, and creeds mix freely, and the marriage equality law has further advanced pre-existing liberal attitudes toward sexuality. While dress varies largely from casual street clothes to conservative office attire, New York is a fashion capital, so New Yorkers are attuned to the latest trends.
