New York

With a globally recognizable skyline and 8.4 million people who call it home, New York City is bursting with diversity and excitement – from the iconic attractions you've seen on TV and in the movies to hidden gems waiting to be uncovered. Each of the five boroughs – The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island – has a distinctive flavor, while individual neighborhoods maintain identities all their own.

Central Park

This iconic 843-acre park was planned to give New Yorkers a respite from the hustle and bustle of the big city, and the designers did such a good job that when relaxing on one of the huge lawns, or picnicking by a lake, or strolling along its miles of biking and walking paths, it's often hard to believe you're right in the middle of Manhattan. The park also contains world-class museums and hosts countless activities and concerts, especially in the summer months.

Whitney Museum of American Art

Known informally as the "Whitney", this outstanding institution is devoted to the art of the United States. A full range of twentieth-century and contemporary American art is presented here, and with 21,000 works by 3,000 artists (such as Andy Warhol), you can easily spend a few hours inside. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, videos, photography and new media are all here to be enjoyed.
