With five boroughs—each with many neighborhoods—comprising the City of New York, there’s so much to do and see year-round.

Before you even get here you may have an image of the City as the setting for numerous movies and books, but once you arrive you see that the fame is rightly due. With five boroughs, each with remarkable landmarks, from the Statue of Liberty to Ellis Island, Coney Island to Times Square, the United Nations to the Empire State Building, it is clear why the City’s sights represent America to the world. You can certainly visit the most famous attractions, but consider wandering a little farther into all five boroughs to discover wonderful surprises in diverse neighborhoods such as Brighton Beach in Brooklyn, Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, Flushing in Queens, St. George on Staten Island and the Upper West Side of Manhattan. With endless places to explore, you’ll have no problem filling your free time and entertaining your family. Plus, getting around NYC is efficient and affordable with its extensive mass transit system, 24/7. Hail a cab, rent a bike, hop a ferry, board a bus or take the subway to everywhere. 
 
 
This is the city of retail, with great discounts, variety and abundance. There’s no city or state sales tax on clothing and footwear under $110, and savings can always be found on photography and electronic gear. Discover artists’ works on the streets of SoHo or in Chelsea art galleries, find that special trove at flea markets in Hell’s Kitchen and at Brooklyn Flea, purchase Asian delicacies in Flushing, Queens, or Italian imports on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. Try on vintage clothes in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, or browse designer boutiques in the Meatpacking District. The City is also home to world-­‐renowned flagship stores like Apple, Tiffany & Co., Saks and Bloomingdale’s. It’s impressive how easy NYC is to shop till you drop—without dropping all of your hard-­‐earned cash. Be sure to come with room in your luggage or an extra bag for all the must-­‐have goodies you’ll want from New York City.
