Experience New York

As the largest city in the United States, and often described as the cultural and fashion capital of the world, NYC is ever-changing – a diverse and dynamic city offering a vibrant mix of world influences and culture through its cuisine, activities, and shops. NYC is also home to a vibrant visual and performing arts scene, including the Metropolitan Opera House, the New York Philharmonic, the New York City Ballet, and the Public Theater. NYC earned one of its many nicknames – the “Empire State” – for its wealth and resources, and there’s no shortage of ways to explore this gem-filled mecca. Visitors can travel by taxi, subway, bus, Uber, Lyft, bike, or on foot.

In downtown Manhattan, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum provides a humbling experience that most visitors find impressive. Beneath the World Trade Center site is a glass and steel structure called the Oculus. A train station and transportation hub, the Oculus was designed by famed Spanish architect and structural engineer Santiago Calatrava and serves as home to more than 50 retail shops and stores. A walk through the Financial District takes visitors to the ferry to see the Statue of Liberty. Visitors also won’t want to pass up the chance to enjoy a bite to eat at one of the many eateries in Hell’s Kitchen. Whether it’s Ramen at Ippudo Westside, Brazilian at Samba Kitchen, or ice cream at Amorino, the Hell’s Kitchen area provides a wide array of palate pleasers for foodies.

Take in unrivaled views from vantages throughout the city, including the One World Observatory, the Brooklyn Bridge, and Old Pier 1 on the waterfront. Relax on the Roosevelt Island tram for beautiful views of the Manhattan skyline and the East River, and enjoy the uniqueness of a cable car ride. Cruise around on one of the many ferries, or venture out for a walk to the many other outdoor activities NYC offers. No matter how you spend your leisure time exploring the Big Apple, you are certain to be in awe.

Traveling to NYC

Affordable airfares are available. LaGuardia Airport is 30 minutes from ACCP’s host hotel, the Hilton Midtown; and John F. Kennedy International Airport is a 45-minute drive away, as is Newark Liberty International Airport. Attendees can get to the hotel using Uber, Lyft, bus/subway, auto, or taxicab.
