There are few cities on the planet that evoke the same feelings as New York. The original great metropolis, it's home to the soaring Art Deco spires of the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings, the bright lights of Broadway, bustling Wall Street and the green spaces of Central Park. Long Island and its powdery beaches extend out to the east, anchored by the multicultural neighbourhoods of Queens and Brooklyn. Glimmering skyscrapers herald Manhattan, and loom over the Hudson and the stalwart Statue of Liberty. Meanwhile, the delights range from the high and mighty - American monuments, modern art – to the lowly and cool, from mustard-topped hotdogs to cosy Irish bars. New York holiday rentals are your ticket to the whole show.
Perhaps you want to feel the local vibes of bohemian Greenwich Village? Maybe you've cast yourself as a jet setter in the high-perched condos of Midtown Manhattan, or is it a seaside mansion along the dunes of Long Island you've got your eye on? All these are possibilities if you shun the usual hotel stay in favour of New York holiday rentals. Often packed with plenty more space than a single room, New York holiday apartments let you feel exactly what it's like to live in the Big Apple as a local. What's more, additions like kitchens and family lounges add a whole other dimension to your accommodation, meaning there are holiday rentals in New York to suit all types of trip.
There's nothing quite like taking a bite out of the Big Apple. As you wander the streets of famous Manhattan, down Broadway and along the sidewalks of neon-lit Times Square, you'll be able to detour to the soaring lookout points of the Empire State Building, or munch a hotdog along the paths of Central Park. New York is also one of America's most generously bedecked museum destinations. Don't miss the acclaimed Metropolitan Museum, where the Dutch Masters are showcased alongside Egyptian mummies. The curious Guggenheim beckons too, backed up by MoMa and the dinosaur-dotted halls of the American Museum of Natural History. Other top things to do include hops to Ellis Island and boating tours into the handsome Hudson Valley.
Whether you're rumbling on the tracks of the light rail network over ground, or whizzing through the tunnels of the famous subway, you're bound to discover one of the world's most efficient and comprehensive urban transport networks in the Big Apple. For ease of use, it's almost certainly worth getting a MetroCard as soon as you arrive in town – that allows access to the buses, trains and subways, and can be topped up with fare money whenever you run out. When it comes to driving, the trademark NY yellow cabs typically take the place of rental cars – just be ready to wait in some traffic jams if you're travelling during rush hour.
