New York has as many personalities as it does nicknames—The City That Never Sleeps, The Big Apple, The City of Dreams, The Capital of the World. It is certainly all of these and more. On a New York luxury holiday visitors can see the world in its 305 square miles, packed with nationalities, religions, and races all coming together in an urban patchwork of steel, glass, and grit.

As the site of the United Nations and the headquarters for a number of global titans of industry, the world knows New York. For centuries New York Harbor has been the gateway to the New World; Ellis Island’s immigration station welcomed more than 12 million refugees and immigrants in its heyday. Presiding over it all is the French-made Statue of Liberty, an enduring icon of hope and perseverance.

A city born of so many cultural collisions has naturally evolved into one of the most innovative places on the planet. New York’s many neighborhoods, districts, and suburbs are an ever-changing kaleidoscope of creativity moving at a frenetic pace. It would take a lifetime to discover all of the hidden art galleries, watch all of the live shows on and off-Broadway, peek into every eclectic boutique, and sample each menu item from the pop-up restaurants.

With so much to see and do it’s easy to let the “where” and the “what” of New York become overwhelming. A New York luxury holiday with Ker & Downey uncovers the hidden gems of the city. Embark on walking tours and subway sojourns to little-known city spots with your Ker & Downey guide. Go behind the scenes of the big museums and Broadway shows, and meet creative pioneers in their workshops and kitchens.

The bright lights of Gotham City are just one part of a New York luxury holiday. Upstate New York stands in contrast to the city with the lull of its natural beauty and chic countryside. Visit the Catskills for bustling farms and wineries, hike the Adirondack Mountains, and see Niagra Falls on the border with Canada. Whatever your aim, contact the experts at Ker & Downey to plan your own New York luxury holiday.
