Delve straight into the New York City lifestyle and completely immerse yourself in the city’s one-of-a-kind culture. Catch a basketball game at Madison Square Garden as you root for the home team, try the city’s famous pretzels, stand still and look up from Times Square as the world moves all around you, encompassed by the blur of yellow taxis as they honk their way through town, and take on the shops of Fifth Avenue with that steely New Yorker conviction. New Yorkers are said to be a breed unto themselves, with an attitude and style that is intrinsic to the city’s history and culture – you can’t help but love them. New York is renowned as a hub for the arts and houses some of the world’s greatest collections, which are so worth planning into your city break. The MoMa in particular is an extraordinary gallery to amble and peruse, and for serious art-lovers, we arrange private art gallery immersion experiences and meetings with artists, so that you can learn about their works and influences and get really under the skin of New York’s art world. Foodies will also love New York’s thriving foodie scene, whether you want to sample culinary delicacies at one of the city’s exquisite Michelin star restaurants for a special occasion, or taste the flavours from some of the best street food carts around, you won’t be disappointed. We love New York year round; it’s perfect for a wintery escape when the city is blanketed in white and you can ice skate in central park, wrapped up in the Christmas spirit, but it’s also completely dreamy in the summer as the city buzzes and every rooftop is miraculously turned into a popup bar with everyone out and about, soaking up the sunshine. You’ll be spoilt for choice on where to stay in New York City and our experts can recommend the perfect place for your city break, whether you’re looking for a boutique bolthole in a quiet district, a luxurious hotel in the heart of the city or a relaxed family base close to the most exciting sites, New York will make you feel very welcome indeed.
