Manhattan

neighborhood highlights

Manhattan’s famous skyline is more than a visual experience; its cityscape bursts with energy and excitement 24/7. While there are endless things to see and do year-round, the City’s lively atmosphere kicks up a notch each summer with the arrival of weekly street fairs, parades, festivals and other happenings. Warmer months also bring outdoor entertainment like free Shakespeare in the Park, outdoor dance lessons at Damrosch Park in Lincoln Center and free movie showings under the stars in Bryant Park. Uptown, Harlem Week spans an entire month with performances, festivals and events honoring the neighbor-hood’s rich culture and history. And after a day of exploring, cool down at a Broadway or Off-Broadway show or refuel with a global selection of dining options. If it’s your first time in NYC, sights like Times Square, the Empire State Building or Top of the Rock shouldn’t be missed.
