New York City Information

With a nickname like “The City That Never Sleeps,” it’s no wonder there’s almost always something to do in the Big Apple 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This larger-than-life city is brimming with the world’s greatest restaurants, art galleries, fashion empires, plays, cultural attractions and so much more.
 
“The best,” “ the most exhausting,” and “the priciest” are also phrases the locals use when describing their beloved city. New York encompasses outrageous real estate prices (the average cost of a Manhattan apartment is $1.28 million), entrees that are easily $40 and $11 movie tickets — so the locals work late, late hours to finance their over-the-top lifestyles.
 
Why? Simply put, New York is arguably the most energetic and exciting city on the globe. Step into Times Square and the flashing lights, honking horns and masses of people exude a frenetic vibe. Bask in the glory of a Greek marble sculpture at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. View the city from the Empire State Building’s 86th-floor observatory. Taste the thrill millions of immigrants must have felt as you approach the Statue of Liberty. Take in a Monet masterpiece at the Museum of Modern Art. Observe Manhattan’s financial district from the Brooklyn Bridge. Picnic at Central Park. Bite into the best burger ever at JG Mellon. Shop at Saks Fifth Avenue. Sit in on the Martha Stewart Show or a taping of the Late Show with David Letterman. Boogie to Madonna at Madison Square Garden. The possibilities are endless!

Winter in New York

The weather in New York is much like its inhabitants: extreme. Winter brings bone-chilling winds (temperatures in the 10s and 20s are common) and summers are stiflingly hot and humid.

Subway

Getting around is easy. While walking is the best way to explore New York, its subway system is the most efficient means to get around. A meager $2 gets you to almost any neighborhood in Manhattan.
