New York is energy and attitude, pure and unrestrainable. Everything about it is larger than life, from the bright lights and bustling streets of Times Square, to the over-the-top magnificence of Broadway, to the imposing symbol of freedom and American ideals that is the Statue of Liberty. A centre of finance and business, of fashion and design, of art, music, entertainment and gastronomy, the city never sleeps. Not for nothing is it called the Capital of the World. New York is hugely international, seemingly having its long arms reach across the globe as it pulls the whole world, with its people and ideas, towards itself, making it a unique and unbearably exciting city, irresistibly alluring and impossible to take your eyes off of.

Do and see
Some people live in New York from the day they are born to the day they die without ever leaving the city. Even these people don't have enough time to see and do everything this metropolis has to offer. World-class museums, famous monuments, huge, lush parks, top art and entertainment, from Broadway musicals to daring street performances... the list could go on forever. It is a dynamic city, besides, one that changes and transforms on a daily basis, spawning all kinds of new, exciting, cutting-edge events and activities. The following are some of the most famous and beloved sights and attractions, but be always on the lookout. Blink and you might miss something unrepeatable. And be sure to pay attention to operating hours, as many museums have certain hours of free admission once a week.
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.
Pier 83 West 42nd Street
What's New York famous for? Among other things, the traffic. Well, if you want to get a distinctive view of the sites and not be stuck in a motorized crawl, you may have the spirit of adventure calling you to sea. If that's the case, take a page from the book of nautical adventures, say goodbye to the landlubbers, and hop aboard this 90-minute cruise through the waters around New York. Taking in all the major landmarks - including of course the Statue of Liberty - you'll see all the parts of New York you've been picturing since you first saw a Woody Allen movie. Or Wall Street. Or Ghostbusters, Taxi Driver, Do the Right Thing - or any one of the hundreds of iconic films set in New York. In the company of a fun, funny and knowledgeable guide, this cruise will take you from the Hudson River through the Upper Bay, into the East River, and back again. All you need to do is relax, take a hundred thousand pictures - if that's your thing, and soak it up.
12th Ave
Grab your camera and hail this unique water taxi. Running rings around New York, this checkered yellow cab/boat hybrid will whisk you around the Big Apple. On nice days grab a seat on the upper deck and set to snapping pics of the iconic New York skyline. If the weather isn't cooperating, you can cozy up in the climate-controlled interior, as the 90-minute full loop scoots to six different piers. Along the way you'll see the city’s most popular neighborhoods, waterfront attractions and bridges. Highlights include the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, One World Trade, the 9/11 Memorial and many more. The taxi departs from midtown’s Pier 79 at 44th street and the Hudson River. It then proceeds to Battery Park, with the option to visit the World Trade Center site, including the 9/11 Memorial and the 9/11 Tribute Center. Additionally, you’ll also be able to get up­-close views of the Statue of Liberty — one of America’s greatest national treasures.
Whitney Museum of American Art
Still devoted to American art, the Whitney houses 21,000 works by 3,000 artists across many media. You’ll find paintings, sculptures, drawings, videos, photography and new media. We’re not saying you’ll get to feast your eyes on each and every piece, but you will get an insight into how American creative genius has manifested itself from 1900 to today. Andy Warhol might be the most iconic name among the artists featured, but you’ll also get to meet other 20th century titans such as Jasper Johns, Georgia O’Keefe and Edward Hopper. In addition to the visionaries of the recent past, the Whitney is still very much dedicated to championing the new. Every two years the Whitney Biennial features the work of young up-and-coming American artists. Like most New Yorkers, the Whitney has moved around the city, a lot. Its most recent move was in 2015 to a new Downtown building designed by famed architect Renzo Piano. The new building gives the Whitney more space than ever to showcase its massive collection of modern and contemporary American art. Located on the West side of Manhattan in the Meatpacking district, the Whitney Museum of American Art right off the High Line is the place you’ll meet American genius of the now.
Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
This particular museum is housed on the aircraft carrier (and national historic monument) the USS Intrepid. As if that's not awesome enough, the Intrepid actually served in World War II and Vietnam and helped out NASA in recovery missions. Now like a retired old sea dog the Intrepid sits on the docks telling amazing tales of its many adventures and giving guided tours to some of the very impressive crafts on its deck. A few of the cool aircrafts you can see here are the Lockheed A­12 Blackbird known as the world’s fastest jet and spy plane (how cool is that?) The British Airways Concord (the fastest commercial airplane). Also housed on the Intrepid is the famous space shuttle Enterprise...yes, the real Enterprise that actually went into space! Please note: if you want to include the Enterprise in your visit, make sure to choose the Space Shuttle Pavilion option. Below decks you can enter submarine the USS Growler, and there’s an interactive hall with flight simulators and other activities that are guaranteed to not just be fun but also educational. Docked right on the Hudson River next to many arriving and departing cruise ships, you can catch a view of the George Washington Bridge, The Statue of Liberty, the NYC skyline and...New Jersey?
9/11 Tribute Center
The 9/11 Tribute Center provides a space for survivors, family members, first-responders, civilian volunteers, and community residents to share accounts of 9/11 with the general public. This self-guided tour takes you through galleries on a visceral journey through the events and aftermath of 9/11. Volunteer curators — including retired firefighters, police officers, and surviving family members — give their personal accounts of the attack. See artifacts from Ground Zero up close, juxtaposed with emotional recollections and testimonies from survivors of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Listen as your guide narrates the events and aftermath of the day. Opt for a volunteer-guided tour for an additional fee. A project of the September 11th Families Association, the 9/11 Tribute Center brings together those who want to learn about 9/11 with those who experienced it. The healing process demonstrated by the 9/11 community in the face of unimaginable horror speaks volumes of the tremendous depth of our humanity.
Body Worlds
A museum of human body parts is more horror movie trope than an idea of a good day out. Thankfully, BODY WORLDS downplays the ick and shows off the wow. This exhibition, dedicated to the wide range of experience in human life, shows skinless human bodies engaged in activities from horse riding to chain smoking. BODY WORLDS: PULSE is a real eye-opener - in that it peels back the layers of outward appearance to show the true humanity that exists underneath - and also because it shows dissected eyeballs. Spend some time inside and you'll be grateful for the splendid mechanics of the human body, and for the layer of skin that covers it all so nicely.
Star Wars And Costumes
This exhibition shows the actual costumes worn in the Star Wars films and the curators have more than done their homework to make this fun for everybody. Storm troopers jostle with droids, Naboo delegations parade beside officers from the original Evil Empire. There is a moving simplicity to seeing costumes stripped of people and the exhibition shows how our impressions of the film have been shaped by costume as much as actor. The exhibition designers have made it refreshingly simple to enjoy. Movie quotes swirl around the display cases, and touch screens show early sketches. So you can see how Elizabethan gowns fused with African headdresses create the ceremonial costumes of the Naboo. You also see how the Rebel Alliance were dressed in orange to mimic 1950s astronauts, and Imperial officers - of course - were dressed like Nazis. In fact, every aspect of the Star Wars universe has been thoroughly thought through and designed. With epic storytelling, iconic characters and cool flourishes it has captivated the popular imagination. This exhibition will prove that costumes have had an important role in that.
Information
JFK International Airport
New York is served by three major airports and JFK is maybe the most well-known one of them all. You can take public transportation or taxis to Manhattan from all airports. There is a flat-rate taxi fare from JFK to Manhattan, but there are also subway and public transport options. To reach the stops for public transport, you need to use the AirTrain in most cases. The metro from JFK to Midtown Manhattan takes approximately 60-75 minutes. There are also different bus services. The local transport company MTA operates three different lines going to nearby neighborhoods. The fare is the same as for the metro. The NYC Airporter is a direct bus line from JFK to Grand Central Station and Penn Station. The journey takes approx. 60 minutes depending on traffic. You can buy tickets online or at the NYC Airporter counter inside the airport.
LaGuardia Airport
This is the airport located closest to Manhattan and therefore you can choose from many different means of transportation to get to the city. There are public buses as well as the shuttle, NYC Airporter, that goes directly between the airport and Port Authority Bus Terminal, Grand Central Station and Penn Station. Taxis and vans are also available at the taxi rank outside the terminal building.
Newark International Airport
Newark International Airport is located in New Jersey and from here you can choose to take a taxi, train or bus to go to the city. If taxi is your choice of transport, you will find cars waiting outside the arrival hall. It takes approximately 35 minutes to New York City. There is an AirTrain, transporting passengers from the arrival hall to the trains (NJ TRANSIT or Amtrak train). It takes approximately 45 minutes from the airport to Penn station. The Newark Airport Express bus takes about 50 minutes and it stops at Grand Central Station, Bryant Park and the Port Authority Bus Terminal.
Metro
If you’re going somewhere too far to walk, the subway is the way to go. Most subway lines travel up and down Manhattan, while buses travel across. Subways run 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. You can buy a one week unlimited Metrocard if you know you will travel a lot. Ticket machines in subway stations accept cash, credit and debit cards. Subway maps are free from all ticket or information booths.
Buses
Most buses in Manhattan follow the north-south or east-west grid of the city, primarily on the larger avenues. Bus stops are marked by a light-blue sign on a green post (and include a list of bus numbers and routes), and the $2.75 fare can be paid either in exact change or with the MetroCard, with which you can transfer for free between metro and bus services. If transferring without a card, the driver can give passengers a free transfer coupon. Buses run frequently and, for the most part, all night, but traffic can make a long ride out of a short distance.
Taxi
You can hail a yellow cab on almost any street corner. Taxis are inexpensive and an easy way to travel. There are nighttime and rush hour surcharges. Remember to leave a tip. Manhattan has very long streets and avenues and it’s important to know both the address and the cross street of your destination. A taxi is vacant if the yellow light on top of the car is completely lit.
Post
You can buy stamps at many newsagents or at the post office. Official United States Postal Services (USPS) mailboxes are usually blue steel containers on city sidewalks. Many post offices or private mail companies like UPS or FedEx are open 8am-5pm. You find the main post office, known as the James Farley Post Office, close to Penn Station.
Pharmacy
Pharmacies are housed in “drug stores” which can be found every few blocks. Many stores are open 24-hours, but the pharmacies inside tend to close at around 8pm. One of the biggest chains is Duane Reade by Walgreens. You'll find their shops at over 250 locations.
