WELCOME!

New York is a vibrant city. You probably have heard, it never sleeps. And as Frank said again and again: "If you can make it here you can make it anywhere."

It's a concrete jungle where dreams are made. More than 8.5 million people from all over the world call the Big Apple home, and another 60 million or so visit it every year.

That happens for a good reason: no matter what you love or which are your interests – art, food, architecture, photography, shopping, sightseeing, theater, music, romance, adventure, exploration – New York is the place where you can find it all and much more.

It's a new surprise on every corner, every day. It's a dream in every heart. Just have your eyes and sensibility open. In New York you can learn a new thing every single day. In New York you can make your dream come true. So, why not give it a try?

NAVIGATING MANHATTAN ON FOOT

Most of Manhattan is designed in a grid pattern. Fifth Avenue divides the borough, and the streets into East and West. Avenues run north (uptown) and south (downtown) and the Streets run east-west across the island. The NYC Street Finder can help determine the nearest cross streets for addresses on Manhattan's avenues. Click here for a printable version of the street finder.

When you get a bit tired, take the subway. You could also download the MTA app, with a complete schedule of all lines
