NEW YORK, THE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD
A trip to New York is always a unique experience. It's impossible not to be fascinated by a city that is a world in itself, with those views made so familiar by the countless films that have immortalized its buildings and streets, as well as minor details such as the famous subway grate which blows Marilyn Monroe dress in The Seven Year Itch: it's still there, between 52nd and 51st street on Lexington. Walking in New York is like being in a movie, and nothing will better spark your imagination than finding yourself strolling through the streets of Manhattan, Central Park and Times Square, or admiring the skyline around Brooklyn Bridge. There is an infinite array of events, places to see and things to do in the Big Apple. With an Alitalia flight to New York, you can discover a city with an atmosphere and style that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Whatever your tastes and desires, here you will find the very best.
WHAT TO SEE IN NEW YORK
Even if you take a longer trip to New York, it's impossible to catch all of the city's attractions, but if it's your first vacation in the city there are a few places that you simply have to see. Starting with Central Park, the green heartland of the Big Apple, framed by skyscrapers and made famous as the location for countless films, and Times Square, named after the building that once hosted the offices of the New York Times, one of the most iconic streets in the world with its neon billboards and the incessant stream of people. And then there are the symbols of the city: the Statue of Liberty, which you can see by taking a ferry for Staten Island or a specially organized tour, and Brooklyn Bridge, which really must be crossed on foot at least once in your life. New York is also famous for its skyscrapers, including the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center and Chrysler Building, as well as the presence of Wall Street and some iconic neighborhoods like China Town, Little Italy, Harlem, the Bronx and, of course, Manhattan. In Manhattan you just have to take a stroll down Fifth Avenue, surrounded by sparkling window displays, historic boutiques and artistic attractions like the MOMA and Guggenheim: genuine institutions and two of the most important museums in New York.
WHEN TO GO TO NEW YORK
Because the North American city is special anytime of the year, there is no best time to book a flight to New York. If you visit in spring or summer then you can visit the best places like Central Park and attend countless open-air events, but fall and winter also have their own charm. Temperatures may plunge, but seeing the city cloaked in snow is priceless, as is enjoying the decorations all over the place for Thanksgiving at the end of November and for Christmas. Both are unmissable celebrations, without even mentioning the events on Halloween or the New Year's Eve fireworks display in Times Square. In the Big Apple, not only every period but every single day is special.
