Everything They Say About NYC ... Is True!
The stuff of dreams? New York holidays have featured on everyone's bucket list forever because, quite simply, holidays to New York make you the absolute envy of your peers. Besides, there's just so much to see and do - for the party animal, the culture vulture, the music aficionado, the foodie, the gallery savant and the tourist hotspot list ticker.
Where would you go if you were on a cheap holiday to New York? Here are a few of our favourite things to do.
First up; tick off the 'must sees'; catch a ferry from Downtown (the terminal is at Battery Park) to Staten Island. This is not only a brilliant way to see Manhattan from a distance, but you'll go past the Statue of Liberty. Cameras out, click, good, job done. While you're on Staten Island take a look around until the next ferry back. There's a rather quaint doll museum close by if you're interested and the little cafes and restaurants are cheaper than back in Manhattan.
Back on the island, just walk for the rest of the afternoon. Strolling Manhattan is like a tour past the sights and sounds of all your favourite movies. Cruise Fifth Avenue, window shop at Saks, go past all the theatres on Broadway and eventually you'll find yourself in Times Square. Don't dawdle unless it's New Year's Eve!
