New York Today
New York, New York. The Big Apple. The City that Never Sleeps. Frank Sinatra famously sang “If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.” And as Jay-Z sang, it still rings true today. The city’s intractable spirit, unswayed by the tragedy of 9/11, continues to lure visitors in droves. New York is America’s financial capital and one of the world’s great cultural (and shopping) centers. It is home to 150 world-class museums and more than 20,000 restaurants featuring every cuisine imaginable. When most tourists think of New York City, they are only thinking of Manhattan; but the city has five boroughs: Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Staten Island, and Manhattan. Each of them has something unique to offer and it would be a shame to miss out.
It’s called the “city that never sleeps” for a reason. Don’t expect your visit to be a walk in the park (though a visit to Central Park is a must!), but remember that in New York, anything is possible.
