Flights to New York
Direct Flights to New York from Johannesburg
Renowned for its frenetic pace, ever on the edge of invention, New York City's creativity includes venerated restaurants, chic nightspots, cutting-edge theatre and architectural masterpieces. Combine this, with the fact that New York City is also a global financial capital, and it's arguable that New York City is the greatest metropolis in America.
The epicentre of New York City life always has been the island of Manhattan, which is surrounded by four other distinct city boroughs - the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island - all of which have their own character and attractions. Although New York City still grapples with the events of 11 September 2001, it has regained its vitality, and now marches forward to confront the challenges of the future.
Symbolic of this is the reopening of the former World Trade Center site later this year. The National September 11 Memorial will be a tree-filled plaza consisting of two giant pools, intended to represent the footprints of the former twin towers, featuring cascading waterfalls and inscribed with the names of the 3,000 victims of 9/11.
The memorial is sure to resonate with New Yorkers and visitors alike. Coney Island is also due to get a multi-million dollar make-over this summer, which will include new high-rise hotels, shops, cinemas, an indoor water park and the city’s first rollercoaster in 80 years.
