New York Week


New York – The Birth Place of the American Dream

The American metropolis New York truly is an incredible place. There are many reasons why there are so many songs praising the Big Apple and Frank Sinatra probably described it best: New York, New York – it’s a hell of town …and I totally agree with him. As soon as you arrive in the city you’ll find yourself in a maze of streets full of cars, people and of course one highlight after the other. Honking cars, crowds of pedestrians on the sidewalk, shoppers with huge oversized bags, tourists gazing up at skyscrapers which promise amazing views across the city. If you’ve found yourself counting the seconds that go by without anyone honking, you’ll soon discover you won’t ever make it past 3 seconds until the noise starts again.

Everyone who travels to New York has the feeling of already knowing the city from the numerous films. One example is ‘When Harry Met Sally‘: A sign at the Cafe Katz’s indicates the shooting place of the famous scene between Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal and still fans are coming here to enjoy their very own Pastrami sandwich. Another one is the Flat Iron building on 5th Ave, where action movies like Spiderman, Godzilla, or Armageddon were shot. For fans of the show Sex and the City Greenwich Village will seem familiar, with its pretty federal styled town houses and their narrow steps, plenty of cafes and artsy places. New York is a place full of variety and the melting pot of many cultures and suburbs who are waiting for you to discover them…


How to win a week in New York

Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, 9/11 Memorial, the Museum of Modern Arts, Fifth Avenue, Times Square, the list is never-ending of all the sights you can see in New York. You probably need at least a week to see all the hotspots of the metropolis. It’s no longer only Manhattan that attracts the tourists, but also the hipster suburb of Williamsburg and Brooklyn is gaining popularity. Here you find the best farmers markets in the city. If you are interested in the historical side of NY, I would advise you to  tour through Harlem and maybe listen to the gospel choirs that you can hear on many corners. Variety is what counts: Chinatown, Little Italy, SoHo, die Upper West Side and Broadway invite you to wandering about and relaxed strolls up and down…

I have the perfect competition for you: The winner and his or her’s +1 will  fly to New York for one week. Lufthansa takes you to the metropolis and you are going to stay in a Hilton Hotel in Manhattan. Every morning you can look forward to a lovely breakfast before you hit the urban jungle. With an extra of €1000 you have the chance to do some serious shopping :)

All of my New York Deals

City breaks are always popular, no matter what season. Getting cheap flights can therefore be difficult, since they are booked out quickly. Also, hotels in Manhattan are either way overpriced or simply not available, because everybody wants to stay in the best area having all sights within walking distance. Booking a central hotel means you can stroll to Central Park, head to Time Square or go by Madison Square Garden, where you can book events like an exciting basketball game from the NY Knicks or a wonderful concert.

Throughout my New York Week, I will present you every day with a new deal. No matter what you’re looking for, cheap flights, Flight + Hotel combos, or a trip for a special occasion like New Year’s and bank holidays… Take a look here at the deals and you will stay up-to-date with the latest NY-travel-bargains. You’ve already been there in Summer? Then you should definitely make sure to visit New York during Autumn and take in this special and cosy atmosphere.
