Quick Guide to New York City
Ah, the city the never sleeps.
NYC is as versatile a city as they come. It can be quiet if you visit one of its many parks, busy if you find yourself in Times Square, a gastronomical delight if you dine in one of its many restaurants, an artist?s paradise in any of its museums. It has hiking trails, zoos, observational decks, large green spaces, and of course, a beautiful skyline. You could go up the Empire State Building, visit the Statue of Liberty, spend the day at Central Park, watch a musical on Broadway, walk the Brooklyn Bridge, hang out at the MoMA, or pick from a variety of things the city has on offer.
Walking the streets of NYC, you feel like a true star - whether it's a performance at Radio City, or a brand new musical near Times Square, NYC is something you can't replicate anywhere else in the world. When you arrive, there's a wide array of hotels and restaurants to satisfy your needs, which will make you feel like you never want to leave.
Points of Interest
- Brooklyn Academy of Music(BAM), 30 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn. Home to the impressive Brooklyn Philharmonic, BAM is one of the best places in the country to attend cutting-edge new musical and dance performances. The Next Wave Festival every autumn is a much-anticipated event of the New York performance scene.
- New York Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall in Lincoln Center, 155 W 65th St (at Broadway). One of the premier orchestras in the United States, playing a wide variety of concerts (more than 100) every year to sold-out crowds, the Philharmonic is well-known for its standard-setting performances of the classical canon. The season runs from September to June, and in the summer they play free concerts in parks around the city
- MoMA 11 West 53rd Street. In addition to being the crown jewel of modern art museums, MoMA puts on a terrific repertory program in a nicely renovated theater below the museum. And compared to other New York movie theaters, tickets to films at MoMA are a steal.
- The New York Bagel. There is no bagel like the New York Bagel anywhere else in the world. Bagels, which are a doughnut-shaped round of boiled dough with a distinctive, chewy, sweet interior and a leathery outer crust, arrived from the old world with Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe and have become utterly New York in character. You can get bagels anywhere in the city but, for the best bagels you may have to trek away from the main tourist sites. Many bagel connoisseurs consider Absolute Bagels at Broadway and 107th street to be the most traditional and best. Ess-a-Bagel on 21st and 1st Av. and 3rd Av. between 51st and 52nd Sts. also has a strong following. Many of the better bagel bakeries can be found in Brooklyn: one good spot is the Bagel Hole (7th Avenue of the F or G) or try looking in Midwood (Avenue J on the Q subway line). For the best bagels, go early when they are warm and straight from the oven.
