Ordinarily, a long layover can feel like a pain, but not when you’re in New York City. Even with just 24 hours in New York, you have the opportunity to take a bite out of the Big Apple. There’s no time to waste, so hail a taxi and explore the concrete jungle before your next flight.
One day in New York means sampling a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Venturing around the five boroughs will give you a taste of each pocket, from the hip-hop roots of the Bronx to the ethnic cuisine in Queens. Brooklyn is home to the carnival rides at Coney Island, while Manhattan boasts the bright lights of Times Square. It’s not all hustle and bustle in the city though. Indulge in some peace and quiet in Central Park, mosey around the masterpieces at the Museum of Modern Art, or take the ferry to see the Statue of Liberty up close and personal.
When it comes to getting know New York in a day, squeeze in a trip to the Empire State Building and chow down on the city’s famous pizza, bagels, and cheesecake. While it’s nearly impossible to soak up all the city has to offer in so little time, it’s certainly worth a shot.
