Flights to New York USA

Why visit New York?

Because they call it “The City That Never Sleeps” for a reason. Minute to minute, New York is the most exciting city in America, if not the world.

Local hotspot

Beatles fans flock to Strawberry Fields, a 2.5-acre preserve in Central Park at 72nd Street and Central Park West, across the street from the Dakota, where John Lennon lived (and was shot in 1980). There are always big sing-along parties on Lennon’s birthday (October 9) and the anniversary of his death (December 8).

You probably didn’t know

If each New York City borough were an independent city, Brooklyn would be the third-largest city in America. Queens would be fourth. Manhattan would be sixth.

Things to do in New York


Asian fusion cuisine is a huge trend in new York – isn’t it everywhere? – and the foremost practitioner of the art in New York is Michelin-starred chef David Chang. He owns four restaurants, a bar and a bakery in the East Village alone. His latest venture is Fuku, a lunch-only fried chicken sandwich shop that has locals lining up for blocks.

The Spotted Pig

There are many contenders for best hamburger in the country, but the thick, chargrilled patty served at The Spotted Pig has to be near the top of the list. When you fly to New York, try Michelin-starred chef April Bloomfield’s burger, which is topped with Roquefort cheese and comes with a huge pile of shoestring fries, will cost you $22, but you’ll forget all about counting your pennies after you bite in.

Russ & Daughters Cafe

If you’ve ever looked at a plate of scrambled eggs and thought, “You know what this could use? Some caviar,” then Russ & Daughters Cafe placed in New York is the place for you. The Lower East Side brunch spot is a spin-off of the famed appetizer store that’s been plying salmon and bagels on Houston Street since 1914.

Di Fara Pizza

New York is justifiably famous for its pizza, and there are all sorts of takes on the dish, ranging from gourmet pies to dollar slices. Perhaps the finest example of the classic New York pie is found deep in Brooklyn, at a humble corner pizzeria called Di Fara Pizza. It has been owned and run by Domenico DeMarco for more than 50 years.

The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog

Few cities are as serious about cocktails as New York. One of the city’s – nay, the world’s – best cocktail bars is the Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog. The upstairs parlour menu at this Financial District bar features 72 historic cocktails, organized by season.

Booker & Dax

Another stand-out spot for cocktails in New York is Booker & Dax. Part of the Momofuku empire, this bar is known for “molecular” mixology. Owner–bartender Dave Arnold chills some drinks, such as his Thai basil daiquiri, using liquid nitrogen.

Le Bain

If the club scene is your thing, one of the hippest spots in New York is Le Bain. Found on the roof of the Standard Hotel, this swank New York nightclub has a plunge pool in the middle of the dance floor, a “grass”-covered rooftop with a creperie and some of the best views in the city.

Sunny’s Bar

Or, for an entirely different kind of experience, take a trip to the far reaches of Red Hook, Brooklyn, right at the edge of New York Harbor. Here you’ll find Sunny’s Bar, New York’s finest dive, which teems with nautical knickknacks and offers free music on many nights.

John Varvatos in New York

The Lower Manhattan neighborhood of Soho (which stands for South of Houston Street) is one of the busiest retail destinations in the world, with more big name fashion brands than a Kanye West song (think DKNY, Versace, etc.). Fun fact: The John Varvatos store on the Bowery was once the famed rock club CBGB building.

Prada, Armani, Gucci, Dolce&Gabbana and Tiffany’s

If Soho is somehow not high-end enough for you for shopping in New York, then a trip uptown to Madison Avenue may be in order. Prada, Armani, Gucci, Dolce&Gabbana – it’s like an Italian fashion-house arms race up here. And just one block over, on 5th Avenue, stands Holly Golightly’s favourite place for breakfast: Tiffany’s.

LEGO Store

FAO Schwarz may have closed, taking the giant keyboard from the movie “Big” with it. But if you need to entertain your kids during your staying in new York, the 3,535-square foot flagship LEGO store awaits at 5th Avenue and 23rd Street, near the Flatiron Building.


Of course, no trip to New York is complete without a Broadway show. With all the options – “Wicked,” “Book of Mormon,” “The Lion King” and a million shorter-run shows featuring major actors – it can be tough to choose. If you feel like taking a chance, give the Broadway Roulette service a try. For a flat fee, they pick a show for you.

The Whitney Museum of American Art

When you travel to New York, do not miss The Whitney Museum of American Art opened in May 2015 on the Westside of Manhattan, right above the High Line. The museum offers a stunning collection of modern and contemporary art, including works by Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning. The Renzo Piano–designed building is the talk of the art world.

Comedy Cellar

When it comes to comedy, New York has long been the centre of the universe. On any given night the line-up at the Comedy Cellar, in Greenwich Village, will be chockfull of stand-up comics who have appeared on “The Tonight Show” or Letterman. If you’re lucky, you may catch a drop-in performance from a superstar like Chris Rock or Louis C.K.

Coney Island

For an old-school family day on the beach, there are few places that offer classic Americana like Coney Island. There’s a beach, a boardwalk, and an amusement park – including the Cyclone, the 1927 roller coaster that’s a National Landmark. Snack at the Nathan’s Famous, home of the annual Fourth of July hot-dog eating contest.
