Visiting New York City

NYC is the busiest city in the United States, with a population surpassing 8 million. New York is also the most diverse U.S. city, with residents hailing from every corner of the globe.

New York City is a city of many names, including "The Big Apple," "The City That Never Sleeps" and even "Gotham City." Perhaps the most culturally rich city in America, NYC has inspired hundreds of classic songs - most notably Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York," and "Empire State of Mind" by Jay-Z. Many celebrities also live in New York City. Broadway theaters in Manhattan attract some of the most high-profile actors from Hollywood.

More than 40 million people visit NYC each year to see the beautiful Art Deco buildings - including The Empire State Building & The Chrysler Building- as well as the many great NY museums and art galleries.

NYC tourists can enjoy breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline from the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center and Times Square in Midtown Manhattan is the most popular tourist attraction in the United States. NYC tourists hoping for a break from the concrete jungle can enjoy the natural beauty of Central Park in Upper Manhattan.

There is just so much happening in NYC that it is a must experience.
