NEW YORK IS THE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, EVERYONE WANTS TO BE THERE.

UpTown, Down Town. What is the Next Town?

Each year, a Manhattan neighborhood enters the city's “trendy” scene, while others stay on the reservation.

Soho was once a forgotten neighborhood. Today it is more expensive than the Upper East Side ...

Meatpacking everyone already knows. West Village is the new point.

But only those who have their finger in the most pulsating city of all, know that TriBeca is the “the place to be”, that Central Park West is where everything happens and that the East Village and Two Bridges are the places that will most value in Manhattan. For those who want to have their place in NYC, the question is not just understanding the difference between a condo and a co-op, or deciding between an apartment and a beautiful townhouse ...

FEATURES:

Manhattan is on an island between the Hudson River and the East River. It is served by several airports, with John F. Kennedy Airport (in Queens) receiving most international flights, followed by Newark (in New Jersey), while La Guardia mainly serves domestic flights. The travel time between JFK and Manhattan varies between 50 minutes and 1h15, depending on the point on the island where you want to go and the traffic. Manhattan's urban planning is very easy to understand because it is made (almost all) of parallel streets and perpendicular avenues. With Fifth Avenue and Central Park as a perpendicular divider, on one end is West Side, on the other end East Side. Downtown is in the south of the island, in the center is Midtown, and above the Upper Side. Like few cities, Manhattan has everything that residents need close to home: pharmacy, market, stationery, bank, ATM, etc. and their neighborhoods are highly valued for that.

  • Malls: Manhattan was not a city of malls, but of large department stores, such as Bloomings Dales, Macy's, Saks, Neyman Marcus and Barneys, which just closed. One of the most frequented malls is The Shops at Columbus Circle. Recently, the opening of Brookfield Place and the extraordinary project of The Oculus. Next to Ground Zero, in Downtown, where the new World Trade Center is located, this has changed; mainly with the inauguration of the chic Hudson Yards, with its already acclaimed staircase sculpture building.

ACTIVITIES:

The park also hosts places like the Zoo, The Loeb Boathouse, where it is possible to rent a boat and paddle across the lake; discover the sculptures scattered around the place like Alice in Wonderland; visit Belvedere Castle; watching a Sheakespeare play at the Delacorte Theater; meditate beside The Loch, to the sound of the waterfall; and visit the Conservatory Garden.
