New York City Guide

The city of New York is located on the Eastern Seaboard of America, approximately 237 miles north of the capital, Washington DC. The city itself covers an area of just over 300 sq miles with 5 main districts the most famous of which is Manhattan. Begin admiring the Manhattan skyline from the Brooklyn Bridge's boardwalk, with the traffic beneath you, the views along the East River and harbor are vast.

Moving onto Manhattan island and to SoHo, the elegant cast-iron buildings, occasional cobblestone street, art galleries, and clothing stores make this a wonderful area in which to shop, drink, and dream of a more glamorous life. Essential to New Yorkers is Washington Square Park. In a city without backyards, residents live their lives publicly, and if people-watching isn't entertainment enough in this Greenwich Village park, there are jugglers, magicians, and guitarists to circle round on the weekend.

At the weekend take in a Yankees Game. Cheer on the winning Bronx Bombers alongside their devoted fans or if you dare, root for the other team. With a population of over 7.5 million, it is no wonder the City is known as "The Big Apple".
