Endless possibilities in the iconic city that never sleeps.
Iconic. It’s perhaps the only truly fitting word to describe the Big Apple. New York City is such stuff as dreams are made on, to borrow from Shakespeare. This is where actors and designers, entrepreneurs and dancers, real estate developers and chefs come to live those lives they dream of, and you can feel the electric energy of those dreams in the air.
New York City is one of the world’s most dynamic cities, made up of a collection of cool, chic, elegant, and trendy neighborhoods. From the world-class art galleries and thriving entertainment scene in Chelsea to the foodies and vintage hunters of the East Village, the industrial chic of Tribeca to the bookstores and beatnik culture of the Village (Greenwich, that is), and the sophisticated art scene and tranquility of the Upper East Side to the jazz and literary influences of Harlem – New York City is simply unparalleled in its cultural, culinary, and creative offerings.
Homes here are perhaps the most varied of anywhere in the country and range from elegant pre-war buildings and modest walk-ups to stately brownstones and luxury high-rises. Central Park views are coveted, as are those ultraluxe penthouses with rooftop gardens and wine cellars. Just like everything else in this city, whatever you can possibly dream of, you can find on this dreamy, iconic island.

The people of New York City are as different as the neighborhoods. Everyone has a place here, from Broadway dancers, young designers, and newly arrived actors looking for their big break to the city’s founding families in their elegant penthouses. Residents may be students at NYU or chefs at that hot, of-the-moment bistro. Families raise kids here and play in Central Park, and celebrities walk their dogs on the tree-lined paths. Life in New York City is whatever you make it, but it always includes the best food, fashion, and the freedom to live as you please.
American Bar offers a menu of classic American bistro dishes and cocktails. This traditional dining room pays homage to the country's culinary classics, elevating them through careful sourcing of the highest quality ingredients, to create dishes like spicy lobster pasta and miso black cod. Posh retail favorites like Bergdorf Goodman and Saks are landmark department stores known for high-end designer clothes, housewares, and exceptional service. The hip Dover Street Market features a sprawling showcase of high-end clothing and fashion-forward displays, plus a gourmet cafe, while Sant Ambroeus takes Italian hospitality to new heights with sophisticated restaurants, coffee bars, and a gelateria.
New York City has some of the most famous and sought-after events in the world. Fashion Week, held every February and September, is considered the Super Bowl of fashion. This exclusive sartorial affair is by invitation only and brings in the hottest stars from music, film, and fashion, as well as established designers and up-and-comers. The star-studded Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic is one of the social calendar’s major moments. Watch the ponies race the field as the Statue of Liberty watches in the background. If horses aren’t your cup of tea, you may prefer the head-turning excitement of the US Open Tennis Championships.
A city of inclusion, New York honors its LGBTQIA+ community every June during the famed NYC Pride Week. One of the largest annual Pride marches in the world, Pride Week attracts tens of thousands of participants and millions of sidewalk spectators to watch the parade, join the rally, march the streets, attend a unique cinematic event celebrating LGBTQIA+ film, enjoy family movie night, explore the street fair, and celebrate inclusion and diversity.
