Discover the city that never sleeps with a New York apartment
New York is a city that needs no introduction. This is the world’s most iconic city, where bright lights, history and culture blend together to create an atmosphere that no other city can match. From the Empire State Building to the Statue of Liberty, Central Park to the One World Trade Centre, New York holiday lettings give visitors an opportunity to explore the revitalising and breathtaking spectacle that is America’s premier city.
Getting to New York
The best way to get to your New York holiday letting is by arriving at one of its airports: JFK, LaGuardia, or Newark. While Newark is technically in New Jersey, it can be easily reached via train or taxi. From JFK, a taxi or airport shuttle may be the best way to reach the city, although the subway can be a good alternative during rush hour traffic. The city can also be reached from other parts of America by arriving on a train at Penn Station or Grand Central Terminal.
New York: Varied weather
Those with New York holiday homes will need to pack accordingly. Late autumn and winter can be damp and rainy, and it’s not uncommon for there to be snow on the ground between December and February. The temperature during the summer may not seem excessively hot, but don’t let it fool you - high humidity levels can make it seem much hotter and you'll be grateful for your shower in your New York holiday letting .
Iconic attractions in the Big Apple
New York has countless attractions, far too many to list here. You could quite feasibly spend months trying to see all the sights and still come up short. This is a city that leads the world in many fields, including arts and culture, and as such there are dozens of interesting sights across the city.
The absolute highlights are generally focused on the iconic buildings and neighbourhoods that made New York what it is today. Start your trip with a visit to the Top of the Rock, the observation deck located on the roof of the Rockefeller Centre. While some may prefer to visit the top of the Empire State Building, remember that from the Top of the Rock you get to see the Empire State Building in all its glory.
Central Park is to many people, the city’s best attribute. This 800-acre park is an oasis from the madness of the city and is a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Featured in many films and television shows over the years, it has lakes, bridges, ponds, and much more to make it an essential New York experience.
From Central Park, head downtown to see the magnificent Grand Central Terminal, New York Public Library, and the adjacent Bryant Park. Head even further downtown and stroll the mazy bright streets of Chinatown. From there, head west to Washington Square Park, which is probably the best and most interesting in the city, before exploring the stores, bars, and tree-lined streets of Greenwich Village.
The Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, and Wall Street are close to one another and must be visited, as must the Natural History Museum and two of the world’s best art galleries — the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).
No city does events like New York. There are dozens upon dozens of annual events that are internationally recognized as some of the world’s best, including film festivals, fashion weeks, and parades. Whenever you stay in your New York holiday letting , there'll be an event taking place somewhere in the city.
Shakespeare in the Park is a highlight of summer. This event takes place at a theatre in Central Park and features performances of the playwright’s plays, all in a magical setting. Even better? Tickets are free. The New York International Fringe Festival, which takes place in August, is the place to catch the best modern theatre around. Book a New York holiday letting ahead of time and take in as many performance as you can over the two-week long event.
On July 4th, head to the river to see the spectacular Fourth of July Fireworks. In November, the Thanksgiving Day Parade brings colour, celebrities, and a whole load of giant balloons to the streets to give New York one of its most special occasions. On New Year’s Eve, join the thousands of others in Times Square to watch the ball drop to ring in the new year.
