NYC is one of the most visited cities in the United States of America, frequently attracting tourists due to its fame and amazing city skylines. It is one of the largest economic hubs in the world, powered by the world-famous Wall Street. It is surprisingly racially and culturally diverse, and can be a cornucopia of experiences for even the most seasoned traveller or tourist. The city does not seem to run out of sightseeing sights; from the Statue of Liberty to Times Square to the Empire State Building, the city has numerous icons that are known to almost any tourist in the world. The city also serves as a good base for visiting nearby destinations such as Toronto, Philadelphia or Connecticut. Driving can be a nightmare in the city so taking public transport is advisable. The buses and subway trains require you to use a "MetroCard", which you can purchase at subway stations or even online. The subway is perhaps the quickest way to get around the city as it is well connected and will most definitely bring you to all sightseeing destinations. With flights to New York at a low rate, there is no reason not to visit. The city is iconic and the people are wildly diverse. You will experience nothing but wonder as you walk the streets of the Big Apple and marvel at how far the most famous city on Earth has come. With its upbeat life and constant vibe, this city is like no other. Visit today.


Shopping

Shopping in New York
Abc Carpet & Home
In the six-storied furniture store on Broadway 888 the carpets pile up on the wooden floor, the glasses are densely packed in metal racks - everything in high rooms and under large chandeliers. In between: couples strolling around with their personal shopper searching for the perfect mirror for the loft or the organic bed linen for the bedroom. Yuppies on the hunt for a new couch or moneyed grey-haired ladies on a stroll through the tableware-department.   In the branch on the opposite side of the street on Broadway 881: carpets of every kind and size on three floors. Old or new, design or antique. The deeper the buyer probes into the store, the more favourable the carpet gets. In the basement there's a constant clearance sale.   Abc Carpet & Home has devoted itself with its products to sustainability. Special icons make the buyer aware of the source of the material and the way of manufacturing. Not to be neglected: the Abc Kitchen, Jean-Georges Vongerichten's new restaurant in the mega furniture store.

Mandarin Oriental
The Mandarin Oriental New York at the Columbus Circle really deserves its five stars. There are 202 rooms and 46 suites with ceiling-high windows with view on the Central Park, the Hudson River or the Manhattan skyline as well as a 1,350-square-metre large spa.

Harlow
Some of the most sough-after tables are to be found in New York. And since the beginning of 2013 the city got even hotter: Richie Notar and Jim Pallotta have opened the Harlow on East 56th Street.   Richie - who was born in Queens - knows what the New Yorkers want. He began his career as a busboy in Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell's Studio 54 where he skinned potatoes and chopped onions on a daily basis. This changed when he became chef and from that point on worked in the city's top restaurants. At Nobu he was appointed General Manager. Eventually he became Managing Partner. In 2011 he founded his own gastro group and hired Meyer Davis Studio for his first own business, the restaurant/salon/café project named Harlow in Midtown Manhattan.   His designers created an oyster-shaped marble bar and an ivy wall in the winter garden. In the reception area you'll spot an original Andy Warhol and the dining tables are lighted by chandeliers from the 30s. What a hot spot!
