Art lovers will be spoilt for choice in New York City, but two galleries that should be at the top of the list are the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. The former includes works by Van Gogh and Picasso in its collection whilst the latter iconic venue contains works by Jackson Pollock and Francis Bacon. The Museum of Modern Art is another highlight in the city, with works by Matisse, Magritte and Warhol as well as performance art and film screenings.
In the evening, head down to Times Square for the money shot of neon illuminated advertisements and yellow cabs whizzing by. Iconic signs include Coca-Cola and Planet Hollywood. There are plenty of good bars round this neck of the woods too, from cocktails at Lantern’s Keep to enjoying a beer watching the game at The New York Beer Company. Of course no trip to New York would be complete without seeing a show on Broadway, and good seats for the more popular shows can get booked up fast, so make sure you reserve in advance! If you’re not really a musical kind-a-guy then The Book of Mormon, by the creators of South Park, is sure to change that. For something more traditional, Chicago and Jersey Boys are both timeless classics.
New York has somewhat of a reputation as being expensive when it comes to dining out, but like most cities it just has a wide spectrum of budgets and inevitably the fancier restaurants are perhaps more expensive than the top restaurants in your home town. So don’t let the hearsay put you off because there are plenty of affordable options. For the classic American burger experience, head to the Shake Shack stand on Madison Avenue or if you fancy dining in, the burger at The Spotted Pig gastro pub is a must!
We hope you have a fantastic stay in New York City!
