Guided Walking Holidays - Five Faces of New York
The 5 Boroughs of New York
New York City is a melting pot of neighbourhoods and its energetic personality comes from the numerous nationalities who inhabit the five boroughs, all bringing the sights, sounds and tastes of their homelands. From the Bronx, Manhattan to Staten Island and over the East River to Brooklyn and Queens, this city never disappoints!
Come fly with us to New York, the most energy-charged city in the world and create memories of a lifetime in the city that never sleeps. From glittering Times Square and 42nd Street to glamorous Fifth Avenue you’ll experience the glitzy side of New York. Add in Downtown, Central Park, The Statue of Liberty, the art deco Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, spectacular bridges, museums, theatres and concert halls, ethnic neighbourhoods, fabulous shopping and some great ‘deli’ lunches and you’ll certainly have an action-packed and exciting week!
This is a city to explore on foot; we cover all the ‘must-see’ attractions, including the quirky and the unusual such as a visit to the often overlooked Smithsonian Museum of The Native American. We’ll ride the subway, take a bus and sail on the Staten Island Ferry. We also include a rail trip up the Hudson River Valley to explore the beautiful countryside north of New York City with its historic sites and pretty colonial villages such as Cold Spring and Irvington-on-Hudson.
From our comfortable and conveniently situated hotel on the Upper West Side of Manhattan Island, just two minutes from the subway, we can easily access the Downtown area where layers of history converge at Battery Park. You may wish to take an early dinner before sampling the numerous theatre and concert venues for which New York and Broadway are famous.
