Eight million residents and a five-borough spread make New York one of the most kaleidoscopic cities in America. The food and drink cultures are no less vibrant, with innumerable options, from multiethnic street food to Michelin-starred restaurants, diners, craft cocktail joints, infamous dive bars—and more. You can kayak in the East River or bicycle through verdant city parks and streets with bike lanes. A dynamic arts environment, anchored by Broadway and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, provides ample entertainment for the culturally curious traveler, and shoppers will find everything they desire from the highest of high-end boutiques to handcrafted goods sold at flea markets in every borough.
