Notorious for its non-stop lifestyle and sleepless nights, the original concrete jungle is anything but stone-cold walls.
New York City, The City of Dreams, The Big Apple, and so on, is said to be the most photographed city in the world with an intricate culture of 8.4 million across five boroughs and home to some of the greatest monuments in the world. From edgy fashion shows in West Manhattan to uptown speakeasies that never seem to close, the world’s most well-known finance hub on Wall Street to the indie artist communities born in Brooklyn and saturated boardwalks of Coney Island, NYC has it all and so much more.
From open-door helicopter rides over Manhattan to the highest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere known as The Edge, there is no shortage of ways to enjoy New York City’s thriving skyline. But for what might be the most iconic view with the Empire State Building front and center, head 67-stories up to the Top of the Rock for an astonishing 360-degree spectacle.
A visit to the city isn't complete without paying respects at the 9/11 Memorial in lower Manhattan. In the one-acre footprints of what were once the tallest buildings in the world sit two reflecting pools, each lined by parapets inscribed with the 2,983 names of those lost. These 8-acres of the original World Trade Center are preserved and maintained in remembrance, along with a dedicated Museum located in the bedrock seven stories below.
The Museum of Modern Art in New York is one of the most cutting-edge galleries in the world, devoted to expanding the definition and experience of modern art. The MoMA reopened from its refresh in October 2019 with 30% more space featuring exhibits with deeper global engagement and new platforms for conversation, creation, and live and experimental programming.
