No surprises here; a show of hands would definitely have New York coming out on top as one of the best cities in the world (if not the best).
The city, with its five boroughs – Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island – is a veritable cornucopia of things to see and do; so many things, in fact, that the nominations were very specific.
Try these Tony Award winners: Hedwig and the Angry Inch at the Belasco Theater, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder at the Walter Kerr Theatre and The Book of Mormon at Eugene O’Neill Theatre.
If you are looking for luxury head to Fifth Avenue; for something a bit more hip try SoHo, Chelsea and Greenwich Village; for fresh produce, the Union Square Greenmarket (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 8am to 6pm); and everything vintage can be bought at Brooklyn Flea every weekend (brooklynflea.com).
The annual event is set to be held on 2 November this year, so if you get your shoes on now you could still make the scene.

New York offers myriad experiences, which combine to make one ultimate experience.
“I do New York often, and every time it’s different – such an inspirational urban metropolis.”
– Christine Manfield
