New York City is the most visited and talked about city in the world for its fast-paced city life, exuberant night life, and popular sites such as the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building, and Times Square. People travel to New York City for business or leisure and get immersed in its dynamic, entertaining, and bustling feel. Rightly described as the “The City that Never Sleeps,” New York City gets even better after it gets dark. It is addictive, and it proves this “addictive” title when you experience everything from night tours of popular attractions to foot tapping numbers at nightclubs to gastronomic delights served at the city’s many restaurants and eateries.
