Things to do in New york

New York, New York, is famously the city so nice they named it twice. The towering Manhattan skyline is the most easily recognisable cityscape in the world and the city is host to one of the most ethnically diverse populations. The energy these different cultures bring to the city is the reason it has been dubbed The City That Never Sleeps.

Spending a weekend in New York makes you feel like you’re in a sped-up silent movie. Trying to cram in trips to all the major sites barely gives you any time to catch your breath. For a city that’s still relatively young, there’s a vast range of things to do in New York; it’s just a matter of knowing where to start and how to fit it all in.

Some must-see attractions include the Frick Collection and the impressive Metropolitan Museum of Art. Don't miss the opportunity to experience the excitement of a live theatre production on Broadway and be sure to take the chance to ride a horse and carriage around the expansive Central Park. If you’ve got a head for heights, you should also go to Top of the Rock Observation Deck to enjoy the dizzying view of the entire city. After checking out all of these sites, you'll find it easy to see why the locals call it the greatest city in the world.
