New York Flights GuideNew York City, more affectionately called the "Big Apple" or the "City that never sleeps", is the metropolitan giant of America. Manhattan and Brooklyn are within or nearby NYC, but New York as a state is bigger - it encompasses Long Island, the coast, and smaller 'country' cities like Albany, Rochester, and Ithaca.
It's home to some of the greatest shopping avenues, restaurants, bars, and rooftops of the United States. There is much to discover, see, or do - all by yellow taxi, just like in the movies. The Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, the 9/11 Memorial, and the luxurious Hamptons beaches are the three biggest draws of New York. John F. Kennedy International Airport and the LaGuardia Airport are the two most popular airports. Expect the climate to be warm June through August but very cold and snowy in November through March.
