America's most celebrated metropolis, New York City needs no introduction. Each year, more than 50 million visitors from around the globe arrive to experience its renowned museums and cultural institutions, its incredible range of retail and one of the world's most dynamic dining scenes. In 2014-15 the constantly evolving cityscape gains several important sights, including the National September 11 Museum at the rebuilt World Trade Center and the Renzo Piano-designed Whitney Museum of American Art alongside the High Line; one of the city's most popular attractions, the elevated park-cum-promenade is unveiling a new northern stretch.
Drawing on the formidable expertise of our weekly magazine team, which constantly surveys the arts and entertainment landscape and reviews countless new restaurants, bars and shops, Time Out New York selects the best of what's new in this famously fast-paced destination while reserving space for the essential classics. As the five boroughs of NYC have become more culturally unified, coverage extends to must-visit neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens, which now rival (and, some would say surpass) Manhattan for hot restaurants, bars, arts and nightlife.
