    The pulse-quickening pace of New York City provides gay travelers with an endless feast for the senses. See the endless sights by day—and party all night long. Culture, cuisine, and 24/7 excitement await in this bustling metropolis.

    Where to Stay

    Gay hotels dot the city—but New York's gayest neighborhoods remain Chelsea, the East Village, and the West Village. Hell's Kitchen is a recent addition to that list.

    Things to Do

    • Hit New York's top sights: Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Times Square, Central Park, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. They're considered can't miss for a reason!
    • See a show! The TKTS booth in Times Square sells discounted Broadway tickets. Or, trek to Lincoln Center for opera, ballet, or the symphony.
    • Embark on a 3-hour cruise to see Manhattan's many landmarks—including Lady Liberty—from the water.
    • From funky boutiques to posh superstores, shopping is an art in New York. Try the shops in the East and West Villages. The art galleries in Soho and the Meatpacking District are justifiably famous.
    • Summertime? Escape to Fire Island. LGBT-favorites The Pines and Cherry Grove combine beaches, natural beauty, and late-night clubbing.


    In almost any season, Central Park is a romantic epicenter. Stroll by Belvedere Castle, see Shakespeare in the Park, sunbathe in Sheep's Meadow, go ice skating during winter months, or indulge in a traditional carriage ride.


    There's something happening 7 nights a week! Newly gay Hell's Kitchen has the hottest nightlife in New York. But gay travelers are encouraged to pick a gayborhood and simply do a pub crawl.
