As soon as you get into the taxi, from John Fitzgerald Kennedy Airport, the journey to New York begins. Sitting in the back seat, you can see Manhattan and the skyscrapers of its skyline in the distance. All the known images of the city mix. Times Square, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge are amazing again and again. And these memorable places are only the visible part of a city with a thousand facets. New York is also the narrow streets of Greenwich Village, the liveliness and smells of Bleecker Street, the Victorian homes of Ditmas Park, the cafés of Williamsburg, the shops on Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue, the concerts at Carnegie Hall and the Broadway shows... Visiting New York means getting lost in its streets. And we get to know the natives. They are Americans, Mexicans, Chinese, Puerto Ricans, Filipinos, Italians, but above all New Yorkers. And they like it when we discover their city. They'll tell you that Big Apple makes them want to excel. A world city where the melting pot is a golden rule, New York brings together more than 8 million souls living at a frenetic pace. All you have to do is see the dinners, which offer the most classic American dishes, fill the room after midnight. With its five boroughs, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Staten Island, all different from each other, New York will not disappoint anyone. If it is impossible to tame the city, a tour guide to New York will help you make the most of the daily show.
When to go to New York?
There is no real high or low season in New York, the city is operating at full capacity, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. However, here are some tips on when to go to New York.
High tourist season: the peaks of attendance take place at Easter (with many French tourists at that time), in July-August and at Christmas. June is an ideal time for its mild climate, with many festivals and activities taking place in the open air. Finally, during the Christmas season, the city's bright and festive streets are often covered with layers of snow. The white coat that covers Big Apple (very beautiful walks in Central Park in perspective, where you have every chance to meet a ski area in the valleys of the park) offers an even more cinematic landscape. As Americans have a sense of celebration and celebration, you will discover a city entirely decorated with Christmas colours and gigantic festivities.
Medium tourist season: September and October are also recommended: the crowd of summer visitors has left the city, and the Indian summer, delicious, is replaced by a red yellow light that suits New York perfectly
