New York

New York, the city that never sleeps. If you are into city-life, flashing lights, noise, activity and the metropolis feeling: New York is the place to be. If you fly with Austrian Airlines to New York you can enjoy a show on Broadway, ride in a horse-and-carriage in Central Park, visit the Statue of Liberty, enjoy the outstanding view at the top of the 102-storey Empire State Building or simply grab a coffee and stroll downtown. Don't forget to have a bagel and some cheesecake, something that the city is famous for! New York, the most populated US city, boasts not only touristy activities which are all too familiar and famous to the world, but can show you that city life is not just like in the movies. A cruise around Manhattan island or even a day trip to Long Island are also highlights that New York offers.

Long haul

Why not fly to some faraway place? Austrian Airlines offers direct flights from Vienna to some of the world's most popular long-haul destinations, including Bangkok, New York, Beijing, Shanghai, Toronto, Male, Colombo, Mauritius and Washington.

Sights

Sights in New York
Central Park
In the middle of New York, a green heart is beating - the Central Park. It's as important to the New Yorkers as the green Prater is to the Viennese: a green oasis amidst the city, space for recreation and fun.   Central Park stretches on 3,4 square kilometres from 59th to 110th street. The area comprises lakes, forests, hills, sculptures, sporting fields and playgrounds. And of course there are restaurants. One of them is the Loeb Boathouse at the lake. Since 1954 the guests rent rowboats and Venetian gondolas for a ride on the lake in order to watch birds on their way southwards or sit on the terrace and have a lobster roll and a jumbo crab cake.   Visitors who'd consider a rowing trip too sedative can try out one of the intertwined running routes, baseball fields or attend one of the rock concerts. There are also sculptures of America's explorer Christopher Columbus, the Danish poet Hans Christian Andersen and buildings like the Belvedere Palace at the Vista Rock.

Hotel Rivington
Turning around your own axis - New York wherever you look. The hotel rooms on Rivington in the Lower East Side are furnished with ceiling-high glass windows and on the upper floors provide an almost continuous panorama view on the city. The Owners Suite of hotel owner Paul Stallings in the 17th floor is open to three sides. When the Stalling clan happens to be out of town, the suite is rented. Two-thirds of the rooms also have a balcony.   When the hotel guests are tired of looking at the urban environment, they change their location and catch sight of celebrities like Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, Edwart Norton and Lucy DeVito - on the roof-top terrace or in the restaurant LevantEast.   The soaring hotel on Rivington is 21-floors tall and in close vicinity to the Lower East Side Tenement Museum and Katz's delicatessen shop. The minimalistic interior was designed by India Mahdavi.   Rooms starting from 225 dollars, breakfast for five dollars.

Spice Market
Paul Bocuse ranges among his teachers. Bangkok, Sinapore and Hong Kong range among his stations. Jean-Georges Vongerichten is the name of the Alsation celebrity cook who's been busy in New York as well. His restaurant: the Spice Market in the Meatpacking district. Since 2004 he serves South East Asian street dishes in the style of Thai and Vietnamese cookshops. The guests dine on two floors, surrounded by a wild mixture of artefacts from India, Burma, Malaysia, China and Thailand and tasty morsels continuously arrive at the table.   Jacques Garcia was responsible for the design of this huge restaurant (comparable to a bus station). The French architect transports the guests with pagodas and colonial bespoke furniture into a distant world. A strong contrast to the New York peachiness of the Meatpacking District where hipsters shop at Stella McCartney or jog in the High Line Park.

Haute Hippie
When hippie fashion pairs with haute couture you get Haute Hippie. But apart from a symbiosis of fashion trends Haute Hippie is also the name of a fashion label in New York.   Everything began in 2008 in a private apartment in Manhattan. The fashion label Haute Hippie was born. The team: five colleagues, an eight-year-old girl and a little dog. Later the small company rose to world fame. By now the number of employees has increased significantly, two more dogs have joined the family and the girl became a teenager. Just for your information.   The fashion is rock 'n' roll and urban, yet glamorous - in accordance with the hippies who were known for loving music festivals. Thus with fashion by Haute Hippie you rock at every concert. No matter if it's with a fur vest and hot pants or with marabou feathers and a mini dress. Next to wearable outfits for daily use you also find long, flowing evening gowns for exclusive happenings.
