How to Get to New York City
The city is primarily served by John F. Kennedy International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport (New Jersey). Most domestic travelers land at the La Guardia Airport. From JFK airport, shuttles such as the Super Shuttle and NY Airport Service will get you to Manhattan on a budget. Taxis are the quickest & most convenient way to reach your New York vacation rental.
What to Eat in New York City
Whether it's the ubiquitous hot dog vendor, the Middle Eastern food stands, Chinese takeaway to eat at your New York apartment rental, or a swanky meal in a Michelin-star restaurant, the Big Apple doesn't disappoint.
Absolute musts are the New York-style bagels, hot dogs, pizzas, sandwiches, and cheesecakes. They might sound cliche but they are favorites for a reason. Vegetarians and vegans are well-catered for with many options readily available across the city. For drinks, Greenwich Village is the perfect choice with its Latin Quarter vibes and suave clientele. Brooklyn also makes a great base as an up-and-coming destination for bars, restaurants, and nightlife venues that shouldn't be missed.
The Best Time to Visit New York
Arguably, the best times to book a rental in NYC are during fall and spring when the weather is pleasant and the city full of atmosphere. Winters get chilly but in the run-up to Christmas, the city offers magical, festive vibes. Summer's soaring temperatures are perfect for those who like it warm and it's a perfect time for outdoor activities like strolling through Central Park and Coney Island.
What to do in New York City
New York's greatest icon is the Statue of Liberty, which certainly merits a visit. The nearby Ellis Island is an informative site on the history of America's immigrants. Wall Street is home to the New York Stock Exchange as well as Federal Hall, where George Washington was sworn in as America's first president.
While in NYC, it will be hard to miss the Empire State Building and the nearby Chrysler Building that dominate the city's skyline. Times Square beckons with its 24/7 flashing billboards and neon screens while Central Park holds the promise of a wonderful afternoon snooze, an outdoor performance, or horse and carriage ride by night.
Art and Culture
NYC is home to world-class museums, galleries, and performing arts spaces. The Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts works by Rembrandt and Vermeer, as well as Islamic, European, and American oeuvres. The Guggenheim Museum stuns visitors with its architecture and swirling staircases. For contemporary American art, the Whitney Museum of American Art and MoMA are fine options — the latter houses Van Gogh's Starry Night and Picasso's Les Demoiselles d’Avignon.
No one should leave New York without experiencing its Broadway culture. As well as the hit plays and musicals on Broadway, catch a show at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Carnegie Hall, or Metropolitan Opera.
Best Day Trips From New York City
From NYC, it's easy to plan a day trip to the casino town of Atlantic City in New Jersey, where intriguing public art installations await. Less than 100 miles from NYC is Philadelphia, known for its historic sites, cheese steaks, and famed beer halls. Anglers should definitely fish at Freeport in Long Island, known for its fluke, bluefish, and flounder. A ferry ride will get you to Governors Island, a great spot for alfresco picnics.
