OVERVIEW

The Big Apple, with its sky-high buildings and bohemian heart, boasts first-class dining and shopping options, and lots of them. Almost entirely walkable, Manhattan alone is a place of contrasts; there’s the buzz of Chinatown; the suits of Wall Street; the hordes of shoppers on Fifth Avenue and the boho vibes of Greenwich Village.

It’s been the backdrop for many films and TV series, so even a short wander could lead you to the setting of a Ghostbusters movie, Gossip Girl episode or Home Alone scene. Venture further out, to Brooklyn for hipster hangouts and stellar pizza, or Staten Island for family fun. It’s known as The City That Never Sleeps for a reason.
