With an iconic skyline, a bounty of museums and galleries and a thriving food scene, New York is arguably the world’s most exciting city. While it’s impossible to see all it has to offer in one weekend, this 48-hour itinerary for first-time visitors packs in the best of the classic sights. Bonus: you don’t even have to take a day off work.
夜幕降临 - 狂欢开始
With frequent flights to New York from London departing every day, the British Airways schedule means you can be flexible. Catch the 18:00 flight from London Heathrow to JFK. You'll land just after 21:00, meaning you can be in the city centre around an hour later – in time for a nightcap, or a good night’s sleep – it’s up to you.
The panoramic views from Top of the Rock mean that you’ll see both Central Park and the Empire State Building
As it’s your first time in the city, base yourself in Midtown Manhattan for easy access to the iconic sights. The InterContinental New York Barclay is synonymous with old fashioned luxury – classic features from its 1920s legacy include art-deco furniture, geometric furnishings and a Gin Parlour.
