Searching for cheap flights to New York from Canada? Globehunters can help you find exactly what you need.
The city that never sleeps, New York City is romantic, enchanting, gritty and enthralling all in equal measures. The streets are alive with theatre-goers, locals and tourists 24/7, 365 days of the year and you’re sure to spot many of the iconic landmarks from films and TV programmes you’ve seen over the years at home. The city is focused around the neon lights of Times Square with its huge variety of restaurants, bars, hotels and shops. Just a few blocks away you’ll find the Rockefeller Center and Empire State Building, while a stroll around Central Park is the perfect antidote to the buzzing crowds.
New York City itself is made up of the central island of Manhattan as well as four outer boroughs – Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. Manhattan is the main borough, that contains the majority of the attractions. Large and diverse, there’s plenty here you may not have thought of to visit, like Chinatown and the more artsy areas of Soho and the East and West villages. In between sightseeing, there’s just about every type of food and drink available you can think of, available at any time of day. And don’t forget to try the delicious supersized New York pizzas!
When you’re done with Manhattan, Brooklyn is also well worth a visit. Ride the rollercoasters and dip your feet in the sea at Coney Island before enjoying the trendy nightlife of Williamsburg. If you’re travelling with kids, the Bronx Zoo and botanical gardens also make for a brilliant day out, all finished off with a trip on water on the free Staten Island Ferry.
