NEW YORK CITY

ew York City is one of the world’s most dynamic destinations—home to Broadway theater, renowned museums like the Met Fifth Avenue, legendary venues like Lincoln Center, landmark retailers like Century 21, several professional sports teams, hundreds of parks, thousands of restaurants and a nonstop calendar of events. The City comprises five unique boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each has its claims to fame- like Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens and Yankees baseball in the Bronx - and every neighborhood offers a particular local flavor. From ubiquitous taxis and 24-hour public transportation to breathtaking harbor cruises, NYC provides no shortage of ways to get around. But some of the best exploring is done on foot, where the energy of the street life can be exhilarating.
