Flights to New York – New York State and NYC
You probably already know that New York’s State as well as a city. Flights to New York give you access to so much exciting stuff that you probably won’t know where to start. You could easily spend two weeks shopping in Manhattan but if you’re there for more than retail therapy, you’ll have great fun too.
More than six million people visit Niagara Falls every year so it’s a bit of a crush. But spectacular. If you like curiosities, you’ll appreciate the Genesee River, one of only a handful worldwide that flows south to north. Why do they usually go the other way then? Something to Google in an idle moment… Flights to New York State also deposit you in the home of the US’s oldest cattle ranch, started in 1747. We wonder what cowboys wore in those days. Tights, perhaps?
Flying to New York – Named after jazz musicians’ slang
New York has three main airports handling tens of millions of visitors a year. JFK (John F Kennedy) Airport is in the Queens are of New York City on the Van Wyck Expressway. JFK mostly handles international traffic so there’s a good chance your flights to New York will land you here.
LaGuardia airport is in Queens too, but on the Grand Central Parkway. It deals mostly with internal flights. Newark airport in New Jersey has domestic and international flights covered and, because it is further out of New York City, it isn’t nearly as manic. We’ve always wondered why NY is called The Big Apple. Apparently ‘Apple’ was jazz musician slang for a city in the ‘30s, and flights to New York still provide loads of opportunities to hear excellent quality jazz.
Loo roll was invented here - another reason to visit New York!
Not many people know that Joseph Gayetty, a New Yorker, invented loo paper way back in 1857. What on earth did people do before that? Actually, we don’t really want to know. Morbid by nature? Choose fights to New York and visit Hartsdale Pet Cemetery, a vast place with room for 12000 furry friends.
Or cram yourself bodily into the world’s smallest church if you’re so inclined… three and a half by six feet of Christian silliness in Oneida. Useful tip: There have been taxi scams at JFK airport so if your flights to New York are heading there, book your cab at the airport desk and ignore the touts.
