Welcome to Manhattan!

Get lost in the brightly-lit concrete jungle that is Manhattan, the most iconic borough in the legendary New York City. Situated on a long, thin island, it requires more than a few words to accurately sum up this diverse area of 1.5 million people. Vibrant is one such word—with attractions like Broadway, Times Square and dozens of eclectic neighborhoods to explore, there's never a shortage of things to do in the Big Apple. Sophisticated is another—places like the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History make it clear why Manhattan is America's cultural hub. Soaring is also a fitting label—celebrated structures like the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building tower over the busy taxi-filled streets and ground-level attractions like the lush and sprawling Central Park. Historic is another term that applies—the modern United States of America was built on many battles carried out here as part of the American Revolution. It's undeniably one of the most exciting cities in the world—as home to some of the best restaurants, bars and shops, visitors rarely run out of things to do in the City that Never Sleeps. Above all else, Manhattan is distinctly patriotic—the Statue of Liberty and the 9/11 Memorial Gardens both stand as a testament to America's unwavering dedication to their country.
