New York, the city that never sleeps

New York is bottomless. It has an infinite number of places to visit and wonderful sights that make it a unique city. The majority of its attractions are located in Manhattan, like Central Park, one of the largest urban parks in the world; Times Square, the square famous for its enormous illuminated signs; the Empire State Building, a skyscraper that affords incredible panoramic views of the city; Broadway, the famous theatre district where you can see shows; Rockefeller Center, where you'll find its celebrated observation deck, the 'Top of the Rock'.

Another very interesting place in New York is the Statue of Liberty, which you can reach by taking a free ferry ride directly to Staten Island, or by signing up for a tour that takes you to Liberty Island, the site of the famous monument. Brooklyn Bridge is another famous place in the city you can't miss. It's almost obligatory to go there at sundown to witness the spectacle of the skyscrapers turning on their lights.

A city with art

If you like art, the museums you'll find in New York will fascinate you. At MOMA (the Museum of Modern Art) you'll find some of the best galleries for seeing paintings by Van Gogh, Picasso, Dalí, Andy Warhol and Edward Hopper, amongst others. If you visit the Guggenheim Museum, you'll be able to enjoy works by painters like Manet, Mondrian and Kandinsky. And if you're looking for a natural history museum, at the American Museum of Natural History you'll find the largest collection dedicated to the natural sciences. New York is immense, and many travellers choose to visit it more than once to get to know all the districts of the city in depth. But no matter how many times you visit, you'll always be left with the incredible sensation that you've just spent several days living in a spectacular setting.
