Travel to New York
DMC New York - for meetings, events and incentives
There is a reason why Frank Sinatra sang about New York, because there is no other city in this world like it. Top of the Heap, it is a city that never sleeps. Vibrant, Sex-and-the-City glamorous, with famously rich people and colorful areas, like China Town, the Bronx, Central Park, and Greenwich Village. New York has also more fascinating department stores and shops than anywhere else. Think Empire State Building - imposing buildings, beautifully dressed people (if you like people watching), hot restaurants, trendy bars. We keep up with the latest and the greatest in our city. We are here to help you and your clients make the most of their stay in our beautiful city.

Travel Highlights New York
The New York Botanical Garden is one of the oldest botanical gardens in America - it is also one of the largest and features 50 gardens and collections, horticultural displays in several pavilions, including approximately 50 acres of New York's original Forest.
The largest metropolitan zoo in the United States, the Bronx Zoo comprises 265 acres of parklands and naturalistic habitats -- home to over 4,000 animals, many of which are endangered or threatened species. The Zoo contains a number of unique habitats -- areas designed to replicate the homes of their inhabitants as closely as possible. Jungle World, for instance, is an indoor rain forest where Asian gibbons, hornbills, tapirs, and many other rare species live among equally rare and beautiful plants and trees. Himalayan Highland Habitat is the home of the red panda, snow leopard and white-naped crane.
Central Park is one of the urban wonders of the world, a green oasis in the great concrete, high-rise landscape of New York City. It is so naturally part of the Manhattan environment that many people may not realize it is entirely man-made. Surprisingly, you can drive through Central Park, as Sixth Ave. ends there, and if you drive through the center of the Park, you will end up in Harlem.
Chinatown New York City, the largest Chinatown in the United States, is located in one of the oldest neighborhoods in Manhattan. Founded in the late 1870's by Chinese immigrants, Chinatown offers a unique historical and cultural experience not found anywhere else in the world.
Downtown and Wall Street
This part of New York has a little something for everyone. it's at the very heart of international finances. Home to Wall Street, see the frenzied New York Stock Exchange and Mercantile Exchange, The World Financial Center with its beautiful Winter Garden, and Federal Reserve Bank. In Bowling Green Park, where Peter Minuit traded $24 worth of goods for Manhattan Island.
Empire State Building
The Empire State Building is a 102-story Art Deco skyscraper. Its name is derived from the nickname for the state of New York. It stood as the world's tallest building for more than forty years, from its completion in 1931 until construction of the World Trade Center's North Tower was completed in 1972.Following the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001, the Empire State Building again became the tallest building in New York City.
For over 100 years, this small area below 14th Street and west of Broadway has been a Mecca to the creative, rebellious and Bohemian. Although today no starving artists could afford to live here, the vibe still lingers and the beat goes on... Downtown charm is personified in lots of low-rise townhouses, thumbnail-size gardens, secret courtyards and a serpentine layout of streets.
Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty has been the symbol of New York and of America's promise for over 100 years. Now handsomely restored, the statue still offers a "climb to the crown" along a narrow interior staircase. Nearby, Ellis Island and its Immigration Museum represent an even more ambitious restoration effort. The island's main building, where 12 million immigrants arrived and were processed from 1892 to 1954, now tells their fascinating story. Both the statue and the island are accessible only by ferry from Manhattan's Battery Park or from Liberty State Park in Jersey City.
You've seen it in hundreds of movies and it is the most famous square on planet earth - no trip to New York would be complete without a visit to spectacular Times Square. Times Square has achieved the status of an iconic world landmark and has become a symbol of its city. Times Square is packed with popular New York restaurants such as Frankie and Johnnie's and Zanzibar as well as Broadway theaters, hundreds of places to shop, concert venues, festivals, street performers, and more.
Guests can sit back and relax on this elegantly crafted boat as they cruise down the New York Harbor to the Brooklyn Bridge, a legend which connected Manhattan with the outer boroughs.
As they cruise by, they will notice the post 9/11 architectural renaissance of New York's downtown skyline. One World Trade towers over the tip of the island, where Battery Park City sprawls out, waiting to be explored. Collectively known as the booming new World Financial Center, the area is decked out in glass and style. In the distance, guests may notice a new perspective of the classic New York skyline, Empire State building included.
Right after enjoying a beautiful entree, guests will be reminded to get their cameras ready as the boat glides past Lady Liberty! She's breathtakingly majestic fromt he boat's vintage point. Guests can keep enjoying the views al fresco, or retreat back to the main dining area, where live music will be serenading them for the rest of the evening.
