New York City. The “Big Apple.” This metropolis of more than 8.2 million residents is the most populous city in the United States. It is also the most diverse of our cities, as immigrants from many nations began life in America after passing through Ellis Island and past the Statue of Liberty.
The center of finance, fashion, business, entertainment, media and diplomacy, New York City has an endless amount of options for visitors. World-class museums, art galleries, restaurants, sports events and one-of-a-kind experiences are waiting to be enjoyed, numbering so many that a return trip is a must just to even get a small taste of what the former “New Amsterdam” has to offer.
Hit Broadway for a show, Fifth Avenue or the Garment District for some shopping. Take in unparalleled art exhibits at the Museum of Modern Art or the Guggenheim. View rare and priceless collections at the Museum of Natural History. Take the ferry out to tour the Statue of Liberty or take the elevator to the top of the Empire State building.
New York City is the city that never sleeps and the city of never-ending possibilities.
