The Lexington Hotel, New York - Destination Info
New York is home to Grand Central Station, the world’s sixth most visited tourist attraction. The largest train station in the world (by number of platforms) includes the famous Oyster Bar on the dining concourse.
The Art Deco masterpiece, the Chrysler Building, was once the world’s tallest building, and is still the highest brick skyscraper in the world. You can visit the lobby during business hours to see the stunning art deco design and ceiling murals by Edward Thrumball.
Join the million or so visitors a year that visit the New York icon that is the United Nations. Look for the temporarily re-located Visitor Centre, now at the Dag Hammarskjold Library Building (42nd St/1st Ave).
Since 1924, Saks 5th Avenue has been drawing up-market shoppers for all the top brands and designer names. The shoe department even has its own postcode!
Art lovers will head straight to MoMA for ‘the best modern art anywhere on earth’. The Museum of Modern Art also has an affiliate called MoMA PS1, a short train ride away in Long Island, Queens. No visit to New York is complete without a tour through Central Park by horse and carriage, bicycle, Vespa scooter, pedicab roller-blade, or even just walking. Picnics are great here too.
