Shows, shopping and skyscrapers!
From the moment you fly over the gleaming skyscraper cityscape of Manhattan, you’ll realise you’re in for something special. But New York is about more than just that famous angular skyline. Spread across five bustling boroughs, you can see the world’s best shows and shops in Manhattan, enjoy a retro funfair in Brooklyn, dine at authentic eateries in Queens, visit a huge zoo in the Bronx and wander 18th-century streets in Staten Island.
Stepping out in New York is like stepping onto your very own film set. And it’s the Statue of Liberty that takes the starring role. An iconic emblem of the United States, the famous mint green statue holding a torch with glistening gold flames dominates Upper New York Bay. You can even stand at the very foot of the statue after taking the scenic boat ride to Liberty Island.
Although when you wander the glitzy streets of Manhattan you’ll soon recognise that everything in New York is played out on a grand scale. Look up and admire the Art Deco styling of the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building, both created with clean, straight lines, marble adorned interiors and perfectly symmetrical patterns.
From below, the Empire State Building’s rows of glistening black windows seem endless, but from above, you’ll see the endless tiered towers of the city in all its 3D depth.
