Destination Guide - New York
Two words: sensory overload. From the height of the tallest skyscrapers to the depths of the subway – life is on overdrive in NYC. Manhattan is like a pizza with the lot: shopping, galleries, dining, nightlife, theatre and architecture; topped with millions of people. A moment of solitude may be asking a bit much, although Central Park is so expansive that it is possible to find a quiet spot and a moment of respite from the pace. But you won’t want to pause for long – Barney’s, MoMA, and Broadway are calling…
Temperatures in NYC go from one extreme to another. In winter (December to February) it dips below 0°C while in summer averages are around 30°C and extremely humid.
Getting there and around
The subway is cheap, efficient and reasonably simple to navigate. Taxis can be a good option. Car hire is not recommended as it’s expensive and difficult to drive around the city.
