When are the best times to travel to Manhattan?

The Big Apple is worth visiting at any time of year. Even in the depths of winter, the frost-encrusted city has a picturesque appeal – little wonder that so many come here to soak up the festive atmosphere and go shopping in the iconic department stores in the run up to Christmas. Autumn, meanwhile, brings a ravishing golden glow to the leaf-strewn streets, while the summer has its own pleasures, like open-air concerts and languid days in Central Park, if you can take the heat.

What are the top must-see attractions in Manhattan?

If there’s one thing that defines Manhattan, it’s the skyline. Seeing it for yourself is exhilarating, and the 2 must-see landmarks are the Empire State Building, arguably New York’s most famous building, and the Chrysler Building, with its Art Deco curves. Then there’s Times Square, an energetic intersection emblazoned with billboards, often dubbed the centre of the universe. Another unforgettable sight is the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Never mind the art inside – the building itself, created by the legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright, is a swirling, cylindrical marvel.

What are the best types of food and restaurants in Manhattan?

As you might expect from staying in this fabled part of New York, your hotel in Manhattan will be close to every kind of eatery. Delicate dishes, as artistic as anything in the Guggenheim, are served up in Manhattan’s Michelin-starred restaurants, while traditional Italian joints, burger bars and sushi restaurants are also on offer. Be sure to head for Chinatown, which has the largest Chinese population in the United States, and more restaurants than you can shake a chopstick at.

What are the top things to do in Manhattan?

Manhattan is one of the great cultural bastions of the world, and you can’t come here without visiting the Museum of Modern Art. Known as MoMA, it’s a hugely influential exhibition space which displays works by a who’s who of game-changing artists, from Matisse to Malevich. See things from a different angle by taking a walk on the High Line, a zig-zagging public park conjured from an old freight railway line, or enter the vast realm of Central Park, with its fields, ponds and unexpected architectural gems like Belvedere Castle.

What are some fun facts about Manhattan?

Manhattan goes well beyond Manhattan Island. It includes several other islands, as well as a district on the US mainland, Marble Hill. One colourful episode in Manhattan’s history occurred in 1956, when a certain Thomas Fitzpatrick stole a small plane and landed it in front of a bar for a bet. He repeated the feat years later, because a drinking buddy didn’t believe his story. If you like hot dogs, spare a thought for Manhattan’s vendors – they have to pay anything up to $300,000 to operate their hot dog carts in popular areas.

What kinds of public transport are there in Manhattan?

To travel in Manhattan, you will inevitably enter the realm of the New York City Subway – that sprawling underground network which makes it a relative breeze to get around one of the busiest cities on Earth. If you’d prefer to stay above ground, the iconic yellow cabs of the Big Apple are always ready to get you from A to B like a true New Yorker.
