Architectural brilliance in the city that doesn't sleep
As one of the most popular cities in the U.S., New York has a significant impact upon global commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, technology, and entertainment. The city has architecturally significant buildings in a wide range of styles spanning distinct historical and cultural periods.
Located on one of the world's largest natural harbors, New York City consists of five boroughs. Visitors to the Big Apple will never run out of things to experience: The Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Wall Street, Chinatown, Little Italy, Broadway Shows, Times Square, and Central Park to name a few.
SoHo, the neighborhood in Lower Manhattan, is notable for being the location of many artists' lofts and art galleries, and also, more recently, for the wide variety of stores and trendy boutiques. The Chelsea neighborhood has also become a center of the New York art world, with many art galleries located in both new buildings and rehabilitated warehouses.
Manhattan is the epicenter of fashion in the United States. Fashion Week is held in the city twice a year, and is one of the main shows held around the world. In the Meatpacking District, near the Hudson River, are a number of high-end boutiques including Diane von Furstenberg, Christian Louboutin, Alexander McQueen, and Stella McCartney. New York magazine called the Meatpacking District "New York's most fashionable neighborhood." Luxury shopping may be found along Fifth Avenue and also Madison Avenue.
Dining & Nightlife
With a melting pot of cultures, the cuisine is sure to please a variety of palettes. Nightclubs may be found throughout the city, and Broadway is always a place to be in the evenings.
