New York Insider Tips

Authentic pizza pie
Most visits to New York City usually involve some kind of foodie activity with shovel like portions of cheesecake, apple pie and cherry drizzled pancakes providing plenty of sightseeing sustenance. Thanks to the rich variety of cultural influences, you'll be able to get your hands on practically any food to suit your mood and let it be said that if it's Italian that gets your vote then Grimaldi's Pizzeria has pretty much got things sewn up. With two outlets, situated in Manhattan and just over the bridge in Brooklyn, if you're hoping for an authentic slice of pizza pie in New York City then be prepared to wait in line as Grimaldi's is an absolute neighbourhood institution.
When to go
New York City from June to August certainly turns up the heat. However, help is at hand as you'll find some wonderful green spaces to enjoy the warmer days with Central Park always providing shade or sun depending on your preference. The autumn is probably one of the most pleasant seasons, for both temperature and things to do, with everything from Halloween to Columbus Day celebrations with some parade or another. The colder the air then the more inviting the coffee shops, theatres and art galleries become and with plenty of opportunities to shop 'til you drop pre-Christmas and during the New Year sales, you'll never be bored.
Highlights & Activities

New York City Tour Highlights

Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island
Views from the Brooklyn Bridge are impressive from a distance and a ferry ride gets you close to Lady Liberty. If you're keen to learn more about the early settlers, a trip to the Ellis Island's musuem is definitely worth your time.
Brooklyn Bridge
Anyone who's attended the play 'A View from the Bridge' will be unable to resist the temptation to walk the almost 6,000 feet of suspended pathway that takes you from Manhattan to Brooklyn. This is a great opportunity to see parts of the city from a new perspective.
Central Park
If you're seeking solace from the city streets and fancy strolling through beautiful green spaces and under cobbled bridges whilst the smells of freshly cooked hot dogs and pretzels waft over the breeze, then Central Park certainly won't leave you wanting.
Empire State Building
The Empire State Building is as synonymous with New York as the autumn leaves are to New England. If you fancy taking in the views then there are a couple of 360 degree observation decks on the 86th and the 102nd floors.
