New York is a shopper’s paradise. Where else can you find the upscale glamour of the Bergdorf Goodman department store, the old world charm of Macy’s, and the sheer scale and variety of the diamond district? It’s a great place to come before Christmas. Enjoy the animated window decorations, and maybe go skating later at the Rockefeller Plaza ice rink.
From pastrami sandwiches to cheesecake, New York is known for its tasty and diverse cuisine. Walk along the High Line – an elevated railway has been converted into a park and walkway. It takes you to The Meatpacking District, a sophisticated area of restaurants, bars and cafés that includes Chelsea Market.
