trip and make the most of their time in the Big Apple.

Shopping is high on the agenda for most visitors and New York’s flagship
stores - Macy’s, Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue - are always worth a

latest trends and innovative designer boutiques, which takes in downtown
Soho and is the perfect walking tour for both shoppers and sightseers.

available in the city. Only 50 minutes from Manhattan, this Mecca of
designer outlets has some 220 stores all crammed with cut-price treasures
enabling visitors to wander through the Gap outlet, Nike factory, Versace
and Barney’s factory outlets to bag those bargains.


Additional suggestions available on the site for anyone looking for a bit
of peace after a hectic day include heading to the Top of the Rock
observation deck and quietly soak up the sights of the city. 70 stories
high, the panoramic views are unobstructed for 360 degrees through the
glass panels and give a serene bird’s eye view of Northern Manhattan’s
landmarks; even the Statue of Liberty can be seen in the distance.


New York is known for good food and has over 20,000 eateries to choose
