With a skyline that's recognizable worldwide and more than 8.3 million people from all corners of the globe who call it home, New York City is a one-of-a-kind destination. Each of the five boroughs has its own distinctive flavor, while individual neighborhoods, streets and even single blocks maintain identities all their own. Whether it's your first visit or your hundredth, there's always something new to see and do. From world-class dining to shopping to nightlife to culture, New York City's streets pulsate with an unmistakable rhythm that attracts more than 50 million visitors annually.
Spring brings fresh energy and events to New York City. As temperatures rise and days get longer, NYC’s streets are dotted with brilliant pink cherry and white pear blossoms, sidewalk cafes and families enjoying leisurely strolls outdoors. Ride the Staten Island Ferry for free harbor views of the Statue of Liberty, see the Mets and Yankees take the field in April for new baseball seasons, wiggle your toes in soft white sand at citywide beaches starting in late May, and throughout the warmer months, hear live music for free in NYC parks. You can spend a lifetime here and still not experience it all. To learn more about each of the five boroughs and their neighborhoods, click the links below.
