The Empire State's City
The Big Apple is ready to bite
New York City has an Empire State of mind. The City that Never Sleeps’ skyscrapers outline the island of Manhattan, and is just about everyone’s top destination. If you are looking to fly more to NYC, and find a cheap flight, you have a lot of choices. With three nearby airports – John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), LaGuardia International Airport (LGA), and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), finding an inexpensive air ticket is easier than most. The U.S.A.’s largest city is extremely accessible and inexpensive to fly into for a perfect stay.Since Vegas is one of the most popular destinations in the world, finding a cheap flight is easy because of the amount of airlines flying to McCarran International Airport (LAS). To get the best deal, try flying in on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Fly out one of those days, or Saturday or Sunday morning.
Wherever you go in the city, there is a lot to see. Most people love to go to Manhattan and Times Square, where you can see phenomenal architecture, shop, and see the lights and sights people recognize. You can also see the Statue of Liberty, 30 Rock, World Trade Center, and Empire State Building, the architecture for which this city is famous.

What makes New York Unique - Can't-Miss Attractions
SoHo: South of Houston St.: A mix of semi-bohemians, great shopping and a homey-neighborhood that is typical NYC. Visit the original Dean and Deluca on Broadway, walk around that area and find some great big stores and awesome little boutiques. Find a little restaurant to get a few bites
Little Italy and Chinatown: Only in New York can you find yourself at a street intersection and get the best cannoli you ever eat, and fantastic bargains from China. Have lunch or dinner at La Mella, and feel like you are part of the “Famiglia”… don’t order from the menu, just have them bring you food. They know what they are doing. During the day, visit all the stalls along Canal St. to find knick-knacks and a bunch of bargains.
The High Line: From an old train track, a park was born. Imagine gardens, walkways, park benches, places for kids to play and a jogging track. Now put it on an old train track that was built about 100 years ago, and run it along the west side of Manhattan between Hell’s Kitchen and 14th Street.
The Bethesda Terrace Arcade: You may have seen it in a hundred movies or TV shows, but it is not something that is on every tourist stop. The Bethesda Terrace, the pond and the Arcade are the perfect places to take a selfie or to just enjoy the afternoon.
New York should be on everyone’s bucket list. Not as a one-time destination, but somewhere to visit often. Its ever-changing face is always familiar. It is a place you can get a plate of Ramen, a hotdog, spaghetti, dim-sum and the latest fashion pieces within 5 minutes walking. Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall this is a place to go.
New York Weather - Well, it's Better than Upstate
New York has great summers, but the winters can get so cold that the lawyers might just put their hands in their OWN pockets. It’s truly a city that never sleeps – even if you DO have to jump-start your reindeer to get to work sometimes.

New York Restaurants - Food so good you'll have bragging rights
Fell like you are part of the ``Famiglia`` at this Little Italy iconic restaurant. Do not order from the menu, just let them bring it out, and say ``basta`` when you are full.
You have probably had a steak Delmonico's at some other place before, so why not go to the place that literally invented it. And the first place in the US to be called a ``Restaurant.`` Make reservations well ahead, because this place is not only fantastic, but it books up like no other.
True New York.The best cheesecake in NYC and a great old-school diner. You can find one in the dining hall of Grand Central Station, on broadway for a pre or post theater meal, or at the original location on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn.
Well, now that the original Carnegie Deli on 7th Avenue is close, the next closest thing is to either go to an event at Madison Square Garden or during the US Open. Or you can just get some cheesecake or deli meat delivered home. Order online... www.carnegiedeli.com
