Welcome to New York
New York is pure energy. You’ve seen the towering skyscrapers, the bustling traffic and bright lights in the movies. The Big Apple is home to the world’s finest museums, most diverse restaurants, and top-rated music and entertainment. Infinite sidewalks lead to infinite options: café-lined streets, humbling architecture, unique designer stores, and the green grass hills of Central Park. That spring you feel in your step is just one reason why this is the world’s favorite city.
