Welcome to the Big Apple - home to the New York Yankees and New York Mets, Carrie Bradshaw's ‘Sex and the City,’ gourmet Michelin starred restaurants and home to the very popular Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. First-timers – be prepared to be floored. For those who’ve already been here, you know exactly what we’re talking about!
If you’ve found a New York apartment rental in Manhattan, you’re most likely starting off in the Financial District. Begin by visiting the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island on the Hudson River and soon find yourself in Battery Park’s beer garden on a hot summer day. Next, head to Wall Street to see the world’s largest stock exchange – the NYSE. Take the New York City Subway and make your way upwards, through New York’s famous Chinatown and the East Village, home to many of the city’s famous restaurants. Once you reach Midtown, you land in the country’s most visited tourist attraction – Times Square. You will not miss it! And now if you’re ready for your first break, catch a Broadway show or two in the ever popular New York City theaters. Other options include the New York City Opera, New York City Ballet or a performance by the famous Juilliard School.
If you’re in New York, you cannot leave without seeing the city’s two most popular skyscrapers – the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building – the view from top is simply breathtaking. The Manhattan skyline is also a thing-in-itself – and to get the best view at night, take the short ferry ride to Jersey City, New Jersey - you will not be disappointed. Once you make your way to Uptown Manhattan, start with circling Central Park, host to many free shows and performances each Summer – make sure you arrive there early to get front row seats! Central Park is flanked on either side by the Upper West Side and the Upper East Side – one of the country’s wealthiest zip codes. If you’re looking for a condo rental or a luxury apartment in New York City, this would be an ideal neighborhood.
New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art and the famous Guggenheim Museum are an art lover’s haven. You should plan to spend a significant portion of your time for these visits. A great way to cover Manhattan is to walk the High Line Park starting off in the Meat Packing District and making its way north up to 30th street. Catch a summer movie in Bryant Park. Go shopping on Fifth Avenue and be sure to get some famous New York-style pizza. During the winter months, Rockefeller Center is famous for its ice-skating. If you’re feeling adventurous, venture out beyond Manhattan to New York’s remaining 4 boroughs – Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and The Bronx, each fraught with its own character and history. On a warm gorgeous day, walk the Brooklyn Bridge and enjoy the famous Brooklyn Bridge Park Ice Cream! The Bronx Zoo is the world's largest metropolitan zoo. The free Staten Island Ferry offers fantastic views of Lower Manhattan.
What are you waiting for? Fly into the John F. Kennedy or La Guardia Airports in Queens – once you land, you should head straight to your New York City apartment rental. Don’t bother with those pricey New York hotels. Instead save up for the million activities the city has in store for you. New York is one of the easiest cities to travel on foot and by train. The New York City Subway forms a wide web, allowing you 24-hour access to different parts of the city, all connected through the iconic Grand Central Station that you’ve seen only too often in movies. With everything to see and do, where should you look for your New City rental? If you don’t need big spaces, but would like something stylish or with views, Manhattan Rentals are a good option since all your destinations are just a Subway ride away. Vacation homes are also available in the other boroughs of Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island if you’re looking for cheaper options.
