New York City comprises 5 boroughs sitting where the Hudson River meets the Atlantic Ocean. At its core is Manhattan, a densely populated borough that’s among the world’s major commercial, financial and cultural centers. Its iconic sites include skyscrapers such as the Empire State Building and sprawling Central Park. Broadway theater is staged in neon-lit Times Square.

The Brooklyn Bridge connects Manhattan to the borough of Brooklyn, where varied neighborhoods range from Williamsburg – a hotbed of indie music, art and nightlife – to beachfront Coney Island and its amusement parks. The borough of Queens has Flushing Meadows Corona Park, with its 12-story 1964 World’s Fair globe sculpture, the Unisphere. 

The Bronx, NYC’s northernmost borough, is home to the landmark New York Botanical Garden and renowned Bronx Zoo. The Staten Island Ferry links Manhattan to NYC’s southernmost borough with views of the city skyline and Statue of Liberty.

 
When to visit
NYC is a year-round destination, with iconic events like,
 
  • U.S. Open tennis (Aug–Sep),
  • Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (Nov).
  • Spring and fall have mild weather and strong performing-arts seasons. In summer, there’s free, outdoor cultural events. On summer weekends, many New Yorkers leave town, making it a good time to score reservations at popular restaurants.
  • Dec brings the Rockefeller Center tree lighting (varies, Nov/Dec),
  • Times Square’s New Year’s Eve party (Dec 31).
  • Jan–Mar is cold, with an easier chance of getting Broadway tickets.
