New York is a city of superlatives. Besides being a world financial centre, the urban island of Manhattan teems with world-renowned restaurants, architectural masterpieces and venerable art institutions that make it one of the world’s greatest cultural cities.
New York has always been a city of the world and its multinational, multicultural inhabitants – who speak over 80 languages – infuse its concrete canyons with a buzz that is every bit as energising and electrifying as that depicted in countless films and TV programmes.
With over 20,000 restaurants, 150 world-class museums and more than 10,000 stores brimming with brand names and bargains from across the globe, New York really does have something for everyone. New York also boasts the calm and charm of Central Park, the breezy park-lined Hudson River and acts as jumping off point for the ritzy beach towns of Long Island. However, the epicentre of New York life always has been and still very much is the island of Manhattan, which is surrounded by four other distinct city boroughs – the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island – all of which have their own character and attractions.
The cultural diversity stemming from the city’s rich history contributes to its importance as a multicultural capital.
New York is an excellent place to visit at any time of year, although it is particularly pleasant during the spring and fall (autumn), when temperatures hover around 21ºC (70ºF). New York winters tend to be unpredictable, although cold temperatures bring less snow here than to other nearby cities, while summers are hot and muggy, often lasting until September.
