New York
New York is one of those places that has the ability to fascinate people from every corner of the world. Big, noisy, polluted and frenetic, but at the same time colorful, dynamic and full of pleasures, whatever you like. New York can be said, is the very synthesis in human nature, with all its contradictions, good things and more living together. It acts with an iman, attracting tourists, artists, intellectuals, adventurers and mainly professionals of any category. To win in New York is to win the world. It is the global showcase, the mecca of fads, the icon of a consumer society that has imposed its standard of living. Not even the 2001 attacks have managed to take the city's brightness, which more than ever, continues to attract millions of new visitors each year. Visitors who, like fluttering butterflies, are irresistibly attracted by their ever-bright lights. It is certainly not a typical American city, but it is definitely a global city, with people from all over the planet and where all languages ​​are heard.

New York is one of the favorite places to stroll, and it would be hard to say anything new about this city, so many are the publications, websites and information available about it.
The largest American megacity has five districts: Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island, but almost all of them every tourist focuses his attention on Manhattan, the central hub of New York. Flanked by the Hudson and East rivers, and connected to the mainland by several bridges and tunnels, it has everything a tourist could wish for.

Weather
The climate can be very rigorous, with high humidity and average temperatures of 25º C in summer (fortunately, virtually all buildings have air conditioning) and snow in winter with temperatures of -15º C. The best time for holidays in New York it's late spring or early autumn, when temperatures are fairly mild.
Health and vaccination
Many wonder if it is necessary to be vaccinated against yellow fever to go to the United States. Relax, there is no need.
Do not forget that it is only required if you actually enter the country, through immigration, which is not the case when only a stopover or connection is made. There are Copa Airlines flights to the US with stops in Panama. Tocumen airport has a "common area" for connections that encompasses all boarding gates, if you do not leave this area, there is no need for the vaccine, you only need the vaccine if you actually leave this area of ​​gates (that is, if pass through Panamanian immigration).

If you are going to be vaccinated, remember that you should take the vaccine ten days before you travel and that people who have been immunized for more than 10 years should take a booster dose because the vaccine is only 10 years old ; and should also carry the International Vaccination Card.
Gastronomy
New York Typical Foods: The Most Desired Dishes
The cuisine of New York is the result of the mixture of different ethnic groups that were in that place. As in other capitals like London, we can find both restaurants specializing in typical dishes of the country, as well as those catering to other nations' cuisines.
Since the beginning of the last century, pizza has been part of the traditional foods of those who live in New York. Others who influenced the way of eating were the Jews. Places like Chinatown have influenced the spread of Chinese gastronomy. Street food is also very popular in today's times.

One of the experts is Gray's Papaya was founded in 1976 and nowadays it is so famous that it has appeared in some North American series, like How I Met Your Mother and Sex and the City, and in some films like Message for you, starring by Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.

Pizza
The tradition of some places in New York is a weighty factor when it comes to getting to know the typical foods. A fine example is Grimaldo's Pizzeria, a renowned pizzeria that is located in Brooklyn, Manhatan, and in Douglaston (Queens). The pizzas are made in a brick oven, giving them a very different flavor from those made in a wood or gas oven.
