About New York

As the city’s nickname would suggest, the Big Apple tempts you to take a bite of its vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere. Experience the diverse cultures of this city and its overpowering energy. You will want to explore every avenue.

Food and drink

The home of the bagel, you are spoilt for choice in the Big Apple. From burgers, pizzas, hot dogs and pastrami sandwich, to dining in one of the top restaurants. New York can deliver any cuisine from around the world. When the sun starts to go down most of the locals love to take a cocktail and the Cosmopolitan is first choice!

Shopping

Shops on Madison and Fifth Avenues attract the label-conscious, while Lower East Side and Greenwich Village are great for bargains. New York is a shopping haven and you can buy anything from designer clothes to costume jewellery.

Cosmopolis

Don DeLillo

Follows an eventful day in the life of Eric, a self-made billionaire who gets stuck in traffic in the back of his limo on a journey across New York to get a haircut. He conducts his business and his life from the confined space, his bodyguards worried that he may be a target. Complex but uniquely matter-of-fact, this book will challenge you and make you think.

The Godfather

Mario Puzo

The classic novel about Don Corleone and his crime family set in New York's criminal underworld.

A Little Life

Hanya Yanagihara

Today, Stefan and I should’ve been visiting Disneyland in California but instead, we’re in lockdown in separate houses. It’s hard to know what to post about in this crisis but I’ve decided to talk about my Multi-Centre trip to the USA as something to look forward to. As you may know, we were supposed to be in the US for three weeks now but we had to cancel. Thankfully, we managed to get about...
