New York…New York…the city that never sleeps! There is nothing like experiencing the New York City first hand and there is no time more exciting to be in New York than on New Years Eve! Thousands flock to Times Square for the world’s most famous celebration: the Times Square Ball Drop. Others celebrate in New York’s iconic rooftop bars, or for something a little different head to the Brooklyn Bridge and walk into Manhattan as the fireworks light up the New York Sky.
New York City in winter has so much to offer visitors, there is always something to see or do. Spend the day marvelling at artistic masterpieces at The Met and Guggenheim Museums. Visit Ellis Island and discover the history of America’s immigrants who flocked from the four corners of the globe to make a fresh start in the new world. Take the elevator to the top of the Empire State Building for breath-taking views over the city, alternatively visit the Observatory at the top of the One World Centre downtown in the financial district for a different perspective on the city’s skyline.
Many of New York’s most famous visitor attractions are very familiar to us but nothing compares to seeing them first hand. Take the Staten Island Ferry and sail past Liberty Island. Seeing the Statue of Liberty up close is a very different experience to seeing it on TV. Stroll through the cobbled streets of the West Village, where the NYC street grid is suspended and bohemian culture, art, music and funky restaurants thrive. Take in as much of the Big Apple as you can!
