Manhattan is instantly familiar, welcoming even first time visitors like an old friend. The backdrop of many a film, its yellow-taxi choked streets and soaring skyscrapers are iconic, its buzz and 24-hour living, legendary. This is a city to dive into headfirst, it’s fast-paced and loud but when the bright lights and horn-honking become too much, the oasis of Central Park is a welcome retreat.
From the Empire State Building to the Statue of Liberty, 5th Avenue’s stylish stores to the independent boutiques of Greenwich Village, Manhattan has something for everyone. Dine on the finest lobster at The Plaza or grab a bagel at a lively deli, check out the view from the Rockefeller or take your pick of world-class art galleries. However you spend your time, Manhattan’s energy is infectious and will have you coming back for more.
