Pick up a bagel and some salami from a deli or buy an authentic American hot dog from a street stand.

Use your free time to explore New York’s vibrant and diverse neighbourhoods up close. Soak up the bohemian feel of the former centre point of the folk movement, Greenwich village. This hub of alternative culture still has a buzzing street life and cute, sidewalk cafes. Take a walk through stylish Soho and check out its hip, funky boutiques, the warehouse district and its trademark iron architecture.

Shopping-wise, New York is one of the world’s hottest cities and a leading trend-setter, so get some tips from your Tour Manager on where to go for the latest fashions.
