Take a Stylish New York Break

By: Andrew Regan

New York is one of the world's most exciting and busy cities to visit. With so much choice when it comes to hotels, dining, entertainment and shopping, you can opt to visit the city on a budget or splash the cash and go for a stylish New York break!

Getting around New York is easy. Walking is the preferred method for short journeys; for longer distances, opt for the Subway (or taxis if on a budget), but for a sample of the high-life book a stretch limo. Limousine hire is very competitive in New York, so if you really want to do it in style, book a three or four hour tour and let your driver do the work. He'll pick you up from your hotel and drop you back there once your ride is complete.

Or, see the city from the air with a spectacular helicopter ride, taking in all the fabulous landmarks and experiencing vistas only available from an aerial perspective. Take off from lower Manhattan and head out south down the Hudson, round the iconic Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, before turning 180 degrees to fly back up the river and witness the city of New York from the air. It's a great way to get a true feeling for and the sheer amount, size and the density of the buildings on Manhattan. For a more sedate experience, take a horse-drawn carriage ride under the leafy boughs of Central Park and watch the rest of the city race by in their cars, taxis and even on their cycles!

While travelling around New York, make sure you stop off at some of the more stylish buildings. Check out the magnificent art deco marble lobby and ornate carved lift doors at the Chrysler Building, and marvel at the sheer magnificence of the Rockefeller Center. The Empire State Building is one of the best examples of stylish art deco skyscrapers in the world and no trip to New York would be complete without a visit to the city's tallest building and a trip to its famous observation deck.

If you want to experience a luxury stay in the city you'll find the most stylish hotels in New York are to be found around Fifth and Madison Avenues, as well as in hotels bordering the south side of Central Park. From any of these locations you will be ideally placed to explore the best this city has to offer!
