Things to do in New York

The city that never sleeps is where adventurers, three museums in a day-ers, musical lovers, foodies and shopaholics all meet their match. New York’s history, cuisine, fashion, art and music have all been shaped by decades of immigration. So, we’ve made it easier for you by sharing our top picks. From the skyscrapers to world-renowned art museums and the bright lights of Broadway, the Big Apple offers loads of things to see and do. Top six things to do in New York 1. Explore Times Square The beating heart of Manhattan, Times Square is one of New York’s most emblematic landmarks. See street performers entertain crowds under the fast-flickering neon lights and bright billboards, go shopping, take selfies or simply watch the world go by from the iconic Red Steps. Known as ‘The Crossroads of the World’, Times Square is bang in the middle of the Theater District. From long-running classics to modern musicals, seeing a Broadway show is one of the top things to do in New York. 2. Admire the views from atop the city’s observation decks Admiring New York City from above is a one-of-a-kind experience. Perched atop towering skyscrapers, the views from the city’s observation decks is always breathtaking. Whether you visit the Empire State Building, the Top of the Rock, The One Vanderbilt SUMMIT in Midtown, the One World Observatory in downtown, or The Edge’s 100th floor observation deck in Hudson Yards, you’re guaranteed a sight to behold. If you really want to go all out, then book a helicopter ride for an incomparable vantage point. For something more grounded, head to one of the city’s rooftop bars. 3. Visit one of the many museums New York has so much art and culture on display that it would be impossible to cover everything in one trip. It’s home to two of the world’s top museums. The Metropolitan Museum of Art – known as The Met – is a good place to start, and houses more than two million pieces of art. Another firm favourite is The Museum of Modern Art, known as the MoMA, which houses a world-class collection of paintings, sculptures and designs. The American Museum of Natural History is a great choice for families, and explores the natural wonders of the world. Or, visit the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, which remembers and honours the victims of the attacks on the Twin Towers. 4. Stroll through Central Park A trip to New York City isn’t complete without visiting Central Park. Escape the city to this urban oasis and see how many movie landmarks you can spot – the likes of Home Alone 2, Serendipity and When Harry Met Sally all had scenes here. Wander around its green meadows, gardens, fountains, ponds and bridges. Rent a bike to cruise around on two wheels, visit the Central Park Zoo, admire the view from Belvedere Castle, or join a walking tour to discover John Lennon’s Strawberry Fields, the Bethesda Fountain, Conservatory Garden and much more. 5. See the Statue of Liberty The Statue of Liberty requires a bit of planning to visit, but it’s more than worth it. This gift from France is one of the most famous statues in the world and is undoubtedly among New York’s most iconic sights. Representing the freedom and democracy of the United States, it has been standing on Liberty Island since 1886. A 15-minute ferry ride takes you from Lower Manhattan to the island. While you’re there, don’t miss nearby Ellis Island and its impressive Immigration Museum. 6. Discover the diverse food scene The melting pot of New York City boasts one of the world’s most diverse culinary scenes. Explore the different flavours and cuisines by joining a gastronomic tour. If you’re looking for authentic Italian food, then head to Arthur Avenue in the Bronx for all of the Italian delicacies you can think of. A foodie tour of the Lower East Side will have you trying mouth-watering specialities such as lox – a type of salmon bagel – pastrami, pickles and knishes – a baked dough with tasty fillings. They’re all on offer in authentic Jewish delis and bakeries. Take a pizza tour to discover your favourite NY slice or head to Chinatown for spicy Asian fare.
