Known as the Big Apple to some and the city that never sleeps to others; way we recommend that you spend at least a couple of days taking in this unforgettable concrete jungle. No matter what way you do it, on a budget or splashing out, New York will leave you inspired. With breath taking views to be seen around every corner, a trip to New York is a must-do to top of any J1 trip to America. Feast your eyes on the breathtaking skyline from the top of the Empire State Building; we especially love doing this at midnight when the crowds have dwindled and the city lights are twinkling! Ride the subway downtown, hop on a ferry and wave hello to Lady Liberty. While you're there, visit the beautiful 9/11 memorial and gaze at the Freedom Tower. If you want to truly immerse yourself in the New York culture visit the dazzling Times Square before heading to dinner in the infamous Hard Rock Cafe. If you're a TV & film lover, NY is the perfect backdrop to recreate some of your favorite onscreen moments! Grab a Danish and shop till you drop at Tiffany's. Satisfy your sugar cravings with a Fro-Yo on The Met Steps while doing your best Gossip Girl Impression or start a flash mob in Grand Central Station like every Rom-Com ever! With something for everyone; New York is one our favourite J1 destinations!
