Karan Johar was recently in New York to celebrate his 40th birthday. As Karan Johar arrived in ‘aamchi Mumbai’, Deepika Padukone was spotted flying out to New York. Time and again, we have seen tinsel town stars holidaying in NYC. We tell you the reasons why New York City is everyone’s favourite. By Radhika Sikaria



1) Because the City Never Sleeps

The city is always on-the-move. From 24-hour pharmacies to salons, and clubs, the Big Apple is always bustling. The nightlife in the city is vivacious and has something on offer for everyone. A steak dinner at midnight? An early morning manicure? You name it and you can find a shop round the corner.

2) An Amazing Skyline

The Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Grand Central Station, the Chrysler Building, the Freedom Tower, the list goes on. The skyline is dominated by iconic structure reaching out to the sky. Admire the view from one of New York’s largest rooftop bar, 230 Fifth.

3) There’s Always New Corners To Explore

If you take a walk around the five boroughs, you are sure to come across people and spaces that will astonish you. No matter how many times you walk the same area, you will be surprised every time. Even celebrities love walking around the city, so don’t be surprised if you rub elbows with film stars.

4) Plentiful Opportunities To Shop Till You Drop

If you are a self-confessed shopaholic, you’ll love New York. Right from everyday fashion brands like Uniqlo, H&M, Forever21, and Zara, to large designer outlets such as Macy’s, Bloomingdales, and Tiffany & Co., it is the hub for retail therapy. The local designers in New York are worth looking out for, too.
