Introducing New York


New York is pretty easy to get around, as its streets and avenues are conveniently numbered on a grid system. You can start your discovery with a short stroll through Central Park, before taking in the Statue of Liberty and then moving on to Ground Zero where the World Trade Center buildings once stood. At dusk, there's nothing quite like watching the sun set over the Empire State Building as it’s wrapped in hues of purple and red. At night, you can catch a Broadway musical or drop in to one of the city's legendary jazz clubs. Of course, this isn't even close to covering all there is to do in New York, but once you catch the rhythm of the city, New York itself will be your guide to where you want to go and what you want to do!
