New York City packs more wow moments into a day—or night—than any other, guaranteeing that traveling here is always a good idea. And there’s no better time than right now to take a bite out of The Big Apple (or two or three) with discounted stays at Park Terrace Hotel, right in the heart of Midtown Manhattan.

Here are our top reasons why a trip to New York is always a good idea:

There is simply nowhere else in the world that compares.

Everything in NYC is—or competing to be—higher, bigger, and better. Come ready to open yourself up to the iconic, the sensational, the latest thing.

A quick tally of New York’s singular landmarks and architectural treasures range from Art Deco landmarks such as the Chrysler Building and Rockefeller Center, to magnificent architectural statements such as One World Trade Center where you can rocket straight to the 102nd-floor Observatory in less than 60 seconds.

Where else but NYC could you shop at Tiffany & Co. in the morning, ferry across the Hudson River to the Statue of Liberty in the afternoon, and attend a legendary show on Broadway or follow the buzz to an edgy off-Broadway play after dark?

You can bet the next days will be just as full. Window shop along Fifth Avenue and then duck into world-famous Bryant Park – an urban oasis in Midtown Manhattan – located in Park Terrace’s front yard. Dip into boutiques and galleries in neighborhoods like the East Village and Chelsea. Marvel at a 94-foot-long, 21,000-pound model of a blue whale suspended from the ceiling at American Museum of Natural History or try out your 007 aptitude on interactive exhibits at The International Spy Museum.

There is something for every interest and no end to the possibilities. You’ll definitely need a few trips to discover it all.

It’s not just a city, it’s a state of mind.

Like Tony Bennett croons in the classic song, “New York State of Mind”, NYC is more than a place, it’s a heady cocktail of experiences with an undeniable energy. A singular state of mind.

Being at the defining edge of fashion, film, and food will spoil you. Rubbing shoulders with celebrity chefs, legendary industry movers and shakers, and people from so many diverse cultures will change you in ways you never expected.

Eat

Why board a plane when you can embark on a cultural odyssey via more than 60 international cuisines? If you’re not a foodie already, you’ll quickly earn your stripes sampling an unmatched diversity of ethnic specialties and cutting-edge fusions. Here, everything is on the menu or in a specialty venue like Chelsea Market and Eataly, where you can dine, purchase, and learn cook all things Italian.

Shop

From the world’s most famous names on legendary Fifth Avenue to vintage vinyl and rock memorabilia in the East Village, you will find everything you’re looking for (and many more surprises!) on the streets of NYC. Try on high-quality, fashion-forward clothing in the best boutiques around. Head to Chinatown for Asian silk goods, tea, and spices. Get deals on precious gems in New York’s famous Diamond District near all your favorite brands in Times Square.

This city ‘never sleeps’— no matter what the season.

NYC is a round-the-clock, year-round destination. You can spend an evening sipping specially curated cocktails surrounded by the twinkling city skyline at a rooftop bar or dance ‘til dawn in a Chelsea nightclub. Winter, spring, summer, or fall, NYC is alive with events and culture.

Winter

When temperatures dip, New York City will warm you with holiday celebrations like the tree-lighting at Rockefeller Center at 8 p.m. November 30. Bring your Christmas shopping list because the European-inspired artisan kiosks of Bryant Park Winter Village are steps from you stay at Park Terrace Hotel. Beginning in October nearly 200 vendors come right to your door with an astounding array of one-of-a-kind treasures, from handcrafted artwork to children’s toys. Shop in the festive Holiday Shops under thousands of twinkling lights. Then, warm up and have a bite to eat in a cozy rented igloo before skating for free on The Rink, a 17,000-square-foot frozen lake. Winter is also the time to update your style during New York Fashion Week, February 9-15, 2023 and sample acclaimed restaurants, including some of NY’s more than 70 Michelin-starred eateries, during New York Restaurant Week. During the weeks between mid-January and mid-February prix-fixe meals begin at $29.

Spring

Spring is busting at Macy’s Herald Square Flower Show, where you can ramble through five gardens of trees and fragrant blooms. As the days warm up, soak up the sun and performance art on the 1.45-mile-long High Line, created on a former railroad spur. Book a local-led walking tour to one of NYC’s fascinating neighborhoods or bike through NYC’s five boroughs.

Summer

On sultry nights relax at a live picnic performance or movie night at Bryant Park. Or root for the Yankees—Park Terrace is one of the best hotels near Yankee Stadium. Get out on the water on the free Staten Island Ferry or in a rowboat in Central Park after brunch at the lakeside Loeb Boathouse or a visit to the zoo.

Fall

Fall is festival season the city! Join us in celebrating life’s good things at the New York Film Festival (September 29 -October 15, 2023), The New York Wine & Food Festival (opening October 12, 2023), The New York Coffee Festival (October), or The New York Comedy Festival (November).
