New York, NY
The name New York is almost synonymous with entertainment, because 365 days a year there’s just so much of it taking place. New York is home to a wealth of local professional sports teams, including the New York Giants and New York Jets at the Meadowlands Sports Complex, the Yankees and the Mets, the New York Knicks and the Brooklyn Nets, and the New York Rangers and New York Islanders. If culture is your thing, you’ve come to the right town. Take in a ballet at Lincoln Center or explore the glorious American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Here during the holidays? Do not miss the tree at Rock Center or the world-famous Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall. Oh, and have we mentioned a little thoroughfare called Broadway yet? If you haven’t been to a show on the “Great White Way,” ask our concierge about getting tickets.
Of course, if nightlife is more your idea of a sport, the Big Apple has plenty to offer in that arena, too. From dancing to nightclubs to music—we've got it all. But in a city as fast-paced as New York, the nightlife scene is constantly changing. So don’t hesitate to contact our concierge for help with planning an evening out with friends or clients. We’re happy to make recommendations. In addition, if you are interested in checking out some of New York City’s other exciting neighborhoods like Greenwich Village, SoHo, or Tribeca, our concierge will also be happy to oblige with suggestions for things to see and places to dine.
