New York, New York – so good they named it twice
This is a city of abundance, of celebration, of life. With its unmistakable skyline piercing the clouds, this epicentre of superlatives is where you want to head to in order to make your dreams come true. You can see dreams big and small, incarnate in every street, whether it’s the Broadway dancer running late for his audition, the Wall Street trader shouting instructions down the phone, the self-made man who runs a shop, a restaurant, a dry cleaning business or just a food truck on a corner, or the immigrant from a far-away culture, who has packed up all her belongings to seek out a better life.
This dream factory welcomes every last traveller in signature hearty style, where each New York minute is packed full of impressions, and every newcomer is overwhelmed like a settler still arriving on the boat at Ellis Island with nothing but a bag-full of hope. New York is truly a city of hope. The undying torch above the Statue of Liberty burns bright for every one of the millions of souls pounding the pavement of Manhattan’s street each day trying to beat the pace of the city while racing to the top.If you start with Breakfast at Tiffany’s you’re already running late: nothing beats the mystery of the city in the twilight, when a cup of Joe and a stale bagel are all the company you need, as you roam through Washington Square or listen to the Upper West Side wake up, one household at a time.
