I’m a lifelong New Yorker and this is my ultimate travel guide to NYC, including my favorite hotels, restaurants, things to do, and more
Cultural riches, an ever-evolving skyline, and relentless energy define New York City. Ask anyone who lives here and they’ll proudly tell you, it’s the greatest city in the world.
Its museums and restaurants alone are worth planning a trip, and there’s a wealth of fresh-air diversions at the city’s many parks, gardens, and sandy beaches. Blue-chip performing arts, including Broadway, world-class dance, and top-caliber music, all hit the stage nightly, but don’t forget to take a chance and head to that dive bar where the next Miles Davis may be performing a set.
While Manhattan buzzes as the city’s electric core, don’t miss the chance to experience the vibrant character of New York’s other boroughs, which all merit attention. From street food to an impromptu ride on a breezy ferry, or a game of pickup basketball at courts sprinkled throughout the city, New York dazzles at every chance.
