New York ticks all the boxes of global city superstardom. It also has a touch of class and sass that’s all its own. From Fifth Avenue flair to Greenwich Village verve, from Broadway glitter to Central Park play, this distinctive city certainly doesn’t need naming twice. Those looking to book flights to New York will enjoy a friendly, emerald-tinted city too. As the old quip goes, the biggest difference between NYC and Éire is that there are more Irish in New York.
Whatever the season, New York City shines: fresh-faced in spring, boisterous in summer and sprinkled with a magic at Christmas. So the crowds are always there. In April, Central Park’s blooms and buds bring out the lovers and joggers. In summer, it’s the open-air concerts that draw in the crowds. December sees the sidewalks throng with shoppers. That constant footfall can make cheap flights to New York hard to come by. Planning ahead helps to find those cheap tickets to New York. The sweetest spot to book your tickets to New York seems to be five months before you jump on the plane.
Hopping across the pond can take as little as 7 hours from Dublin. US airlines Delta and United both offer non-stop flights from the capital to New York. You can also board a direct flight to NYC at Shannon, courtesy of Delta. But from Cork you’ll generally need to take an Aer Lingus plane to Heathrow before nipping across the Atlantic. That stretches the travel time to 10 hours or more.
JFK is NYC’s main air travel hub. It has cabs, buses and trains on-hand to whisk you to the start of your NY fairy tale. The MTA NYC Bus is the cheapest choice, at just $3, but this also the slowest. A shuttle bus will get you into central districts somewhat faster for $15 to $25. The JFK AirTrain does the job for only $10 in less than an hour, riding either the “A” or the “E”. Or act like a proper New Yorker and hail a yellow cab. Just make sure your wallet’s fat enough first – it’ll cost you up to $60.
Bright lights plus big city equal big crowds. There’s so much to see, and all too little time. But you can dodge the queues with a little New Yorker smarts. The Empire State Building’s views can be even more stunning (and less crowded) at night, as the NYC sparkle switches on. And gliding past the Statue of Liberty on the Staten Island ferry is guaranteed to send more shivers down your spine. Don’t settle for sights only, either. There are cocktails to be sunk in Manhattan bars, Broadway shows to be applauded and hot dogs to be munched. After all, the Big Apple deserves a big bite. So why not book your return flights to New York today?
