About New York

As Alicia Keys famously sang, “New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of", this city has countless dreams, songs, and movies devoted to its greatness. More than 26,000 people populate every square mile in the city that never sleeps, making it impossible to feel alone. New York is home to celebrities such as Robert De Niro and Denzel Washington and is a pioneer in fashion and cinema. Its iconic landmarks such as Times Square, Radio City hall, Central Park and the statue of liberty have always been a source of inspiration for movies, musicians and thinkers. Anything is possible here: from the wealthy skyscrapers of Manhattan to the neighbouring boroughs where struggling artists and diverse communities live, to a lush park right in the centre of this madness, they all make up life in the Big Apple.
