The amazing city of New York





Visiting New York is a bit like stepping into a movie set. It's impossible not to let out a "Whouahhh!" at Times Square, teeming with people, with its yellow cabs and its advertising signs flashing with a thousand lights. New York is also home to skyscrapers that reflect the light, brick buildings with their fire escapes, and the beautiful tree-shaded houses of Greenwich Village. Of course, you have to get out of Manhattan to explore the emerging neighborhoods of Brooklyn, Harlem, and the Bronx, which are in the process of being rehabilitated. In any case, the best way to discover the Big Apple is to live like a New Yorker by staying in a flat. You can then walk to the Moma or the Guggenheim with a coffee in hand, then head to Central Park for a yoga class, a bike ride, and, in the evening, a cocktail on a rooftop while admiring the illuminated skyline. Through the visit to its different districts, the city offers completely different places. You can go from the iconic business district of Manhattan to the quiet life of Staten Island passing by the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge.

What you shouldn't miss





As a tourist, you should book a visit to the top of one of the city's tallest skyscrapers, such as the Empire State Building, which offers an unobstructed view of Central Park, the Rockefeller Center with its skating rink, or the new One World Trade Center, which replaces the Twin Towers. You can also visit the memorial of the Twin Towers which will take you into the catastrophe of the greatest tragedy of the United States, the attacks of September 11, 2001. 
Also, be sure to visit the city at night as it is also known as the city that never sleeps
And also known for its gastronomy in New York City you will find its emblematic food trucks of hot dogs or its fast food of American burgers.
