The primary international airport serving New York City, John F. Kennedy International Airport, simply known as JFK, was originally known as New York International Airport when it was built in the 1940s to supplement the LaGuardia Airport. Renamed in honour of President Kennedy after his assassination, the airport grew to surpass LaGuardia Airport in capacity.
Located in Queens, the airport is New York’s busiest transportation hub, and offers transfer to the city by an AirTrain system to the Manhattan subway, taxis, buses and car hire.
Manhattan, a highly populated borough, and one of the world’s major financial, commercial and cultural centres, is at the core of the city. Here visitors will find sites such as the Empire State Building, Central Park and Times Square.
These five boroughs, which make up the city, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island and The Bronx, were consolidated in 1898.
This city appeals to people of various tastes, styles and hobbies. From sporting events, to classy meals, concerts and plays, there is a lot to occupy even the most hyperactive of individuals.
Home to some of the best restaurants, boutiques, museums, and bars, the city is constantly evolving and is hardly ever the same. It is a sleepless city, with various hot spots that cannot be explored within a limited time.
So, if you are ready to take a bite out of the Big Apple, be ready, because there is much to see and explore.
A sprawling 693 acres of forests, meadows, rolling hillsides and man-made gardens, Central Park, situated just off 59th street is a haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Featuring such distractions as 21 playgrounds, sculptures, monuments, bridges, a zoo, ice skating rink and even a castle, the park is a must-visit for anyone exploring the city.
New York is not just a place of iconic sights and sounds, but also one of culturally rich and delicious cuisine. Some dishes to try include Knishes, which is a Jewish staple of dumplings stuffed with cheese, potato, or meat. There is also the hot dog, a New York staple since the 1860s, the perfect street food when in a rush and easy to find along streets or city parks.
Don’t forget to try the cheesecake, a rich and creamy pie, which is popular with New York restaurants. You could also try a milkshake, which is more a dessert than a drink, with different flavours of strawberry, chocolate, vanilla or other ice cream or candy flavours.
