New York forever! Whether it’s your first visit to New York or your hundredth, the magic of the Big Apple is the same. Intense, creative and always at the forefront of the latest trends, the city offers a thousand faces and novelties.
5th Avenue, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park... New York has no shortage of emblematic places to discover or rediscover with enthusiasm. But, always in motion, the city evolves, transforms and reinvents itself. It’s multicultural, offering a world tour to its visitors who pass from the districts of Chinatown, Little Bangladesh or Koreatown to Ridgewood and its Latino atmosphere with residents from the Caribbean, Central and Latin America. Then there are the neighbourhoods of Harlem, Crown Heights, one of the most diverse and dynamic in Brooklyn, or Flatbush where reggae notes float in the air and where the aromas of Caribbean bakeries help you get to the very roots of AfroAmerican history and culture.
For several years, New York has been committed to a greener approach increasing the pleasure of strolling between the High Line Park which offers spectacular views of the city, the Jacob K. Javits convention centre whose huge green roof area is fully accessible with urban plantations, including Eagle Street Rooftop Farm and Brooklyn Grange where yoga classes and weddings are held. Prospect Park, Brooklyn’s main green space, is worth a visit for its natural beauty and also because it has become one of the places to be for New Yorkers.
Families simply can’t resist the temptation of the new Phoenix roller coaster, located on Coney Island, or exploring the first official Harry Potter store opened in the Flatiron District.
