Described as the "Capital of the World," no place on earth blends the dynamism, creativity, energy and diversity of New York City. This beacon of culture and capitalism has long drawn the dreamers and the doers–the best of the best–to hone their talents and live their dreams out loud, whether on a Broadway stage, a fashion runway, a Wall Street corner office, a Madison Avenue ad agency, or a million other professions. It's a city of towering monuments to man's engineering prowess and the desire to achieve, from the Art Deco Empire State Building to the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, and from the Lincoln Tunnel to the shiny new Freedom Tower that rose from the ashes of tragedy.
There's so much to see and do on this densely-populated island that measures only 13.4 miles long and 2.3 miles wide and is home to 1.7 million people. You can't possibly see everything there is to see and experience in a city as great as New York in just one visit, but you can sure try! From hit Broadway musicals to world-class museums, Carnegie Hall concerts to Lincoln Center symphonies, Times Square sightseeing to Central Park carriage rides, and Statue of Liberty tours to Greenwich Village walking tours, New York truly offers something for everyone. And we haven't even talked about food...yes, you'll definitely need to plan on a return visit to NYC just for the food!
