New York is a metropolis located in the northeast of the United States of America, and widely considered among the most important and influential cities in the world. So much so that it inspired John Lennon's famous quote about the city: "If I'd lived in Roman times, I'd have lived in Rome. Today, America is the Roman Empire, and New York is Rome itself. New York is the centre of the earth." The city has a world-famous skyline, plenty of tourist attractions and historical landmarks, on top of an incredibly vibrant artistic and musical scene. If you still need convincing to look into a flight to New York then remember that some of the world's most important museums are in this city: the Natural History Museum and the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) are two of many. Other great landmarks of the city are the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and Times Square. The city has three airports: Newark, La Guarda and JFK, and most flights from London land at JFK. However, these airports connect the city to, virtually, any city in the United States and the world.

All airports in New York are connected to the city centre by bus, taxi, subway and train, with travel times varying between 20 and 90 minutes, depending on the airport and the transport mode. Once in the city, you can purchase the New York Pass, which gives you free entry to over 80 attractions, alongside a guidebook, with maps and information on the attractions, and fast track entry at many busy sights. On top of sightseeing, you can see a musical or a play on Broadway, whose theatres are considered the best in the world, together with London's West End. If you want to explore the United States further, the city's airports connect it to practically every other city in the country (i.e. Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Houston). New York is a year-round destination. In October it plays host to an array of magnificent Halloween decorations and a few weeks later the city comes alive with Christmas spirit. Although February and March may be cold, the New York skyline under snowfall is a sight to behold. Our only advice would be to avoid the summertime period since this is when flight prices are at their highest.
