An iconic city and one that is constantly reinventing itself, New York is amongst the most famed and visited places on the planet. The Big Apple offers something for all, from the bright lights of Broadway and the skyscrapers of Manhattan to the serenity of Central Park.
48 Hours in New York
What would you do if you only had two days to spend in New York? Begin at Central Park: a hive of activity, from boating to rock climbing, ice skating to open-air theatres - it’s a top New Yorker hangout for a reason, and exploring the 843 acre park is a must. Indulge in a spot of window shopping: New York attracts millions of shoppers each year and boasts an incredible selection of department giants, boutiques, and speciality shops. Take in the Statue of Liberty: catch the free ferry between Staten Island and Manhattan. The commuter ferry provides a fantastic opportunity to get a view of the bay and, more importantly, a close-up look at the Statue of Liberty. Enjoy some arts and culture: Public museums such as the Metropolitan Museum accept donations as an entrance fee, great if you’re visiting on a budget.
