Your flight to New York: fun in the big city
Take a generous nap on your Lufthansa flight to the city that famously never sleeps, so you will come prepared for all the things to see, do and taste. To get around the city you can use the famous subway, the oldest in the United States. Start in the very middle, in Manhattan, and see all the iconic sights for yourself: the Empire State Building, but also the new One World Trade Center with the highest visitor platform in town.
The many flavours of the Big AppleGet a good overview of the enormous urban area, then proceed to Wall Street and the stock exchange, Central Park with famous zoo and Times Square with its dazzling lights. Have a walk high above the streets on the HighLine Park, a former elevated railroad track redesigned as a park. Outside of Manhattan, there is Lady Liberty on Liberty Island, the historic amusement parks on Coney Island and Ellis Island with the Immigration Museum. Get a taste for the New York specialties like the legendary Hot Dogs, bagels and pastrami, the New York Strip Steak or the New York Cheesecake. The new wave of Street Food Trucks are also helping to get all the energy you need for the city trip through New York.
Arts, culture and legendary clubsYou love the art? You are in for a world class treat: The Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum will take days to explore, and even then you may have just scratched the surface. Friends of classical music will want to have an evening in the Metropolitan Opera, The Met in short for the fans. The New York Philharmonic Orchestra may give a concert in Carnegy Hall if you’re lucky. You are also in the middle of a Musical paradise, so you will surely find your favourite Show on or off Broadway. Enjoy live Jazz bands in legendary clubs like the Blue Note or the Village Vanguard and discover old legends and new talent. Visit the countless bars and dancehalls and enjoy the sleepless city until you have to catch your Lufthansa flight back home.
