So, you’ve cruised past the Statue of Liberty (smaller than you thought, right?), admired the view from the Empire State, watched a Broadway musical and braved the catherine wheel of capitalism that is Times Square. In this, the ultimate city, the opportunities for iconic (or dare we say clichéd) moments are endless.
But what if you’ve done all that (or don’t give a damn about the top 10 tourist guide lists)? If you’ve only got a weekend in New York, it’s time to experience its other facets – food, drink, art and literature. There’s also time for a smattering of retail, though rest assured, it will be far from the seething hordes invading the vast chain stores on Midtown’s Fifth Avenue. Welcome to New York.
