Travel Guide to Flight to New York City

When in New York City, don’t forget to...

Purchase the New York CityPass for 42 per cent off combined prices (adults, US$106; youths six to 17 years, US$79) to six iconic attractions including the Empire State Building Observatory and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and even get to skip the queue at some. Get it online or at any of the CityPass attractions.

Ride the subway and buses to get around like a local. If you’re going to be in town for any length of time, get the Unlimited Ride seven-day (US$30) or 30-day (US$112) MetroCard for easy access.

Watch a Broadway musical or two at up to 50 per cent off. Get in line for discounted day-of-performance tickets at the TKTS Discount Booths in Times Square and downtown Brooklyn.
Explore the city’s four other boroughs – Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island – because there is more to NYC than Manhattan’s skyscrapers.
Visit the parks. Catch a free concert at Prospect Park in the heart of Brooklyn, go for a jog in Manhattan’s iconic Central Park, and check out the High Line, a park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side.

Explore GreenFlea Market on Columbus Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Finds run the gamut from custom-made jewellery and furniture to gourmet Greek specialities, with an additional Greenmarket farmer’s market section on Sundays.

Admire the classic American Gothic Revival architecture of St Patrick’s Cathedral. Marvel at its stained glass windows, vaulted ceilings and impressive collection of artworks. Entry is free.
