New York, New York. The epicentre of the arts. The culinary capital of the world. The architectural icon of North America.
Whether for work or play, travelling by bus from Montreal to New York City is a fast, reliable, and affordable way to soak up the sights and sounds of the city that never sleeps. So, forget the traffic headache and leave the hard work to our friendly, professional drivers. All that’s left for you to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the journey.
A thriving art scene
New York City has a long and vibrant history as one of the world’s art leaders and trend-setters. Today, all five boroughs offer some of the most spectacular contemporary, classic, and performance art in the world.
The must-visit MoMA (Museum of Modern Art), MET, and iconic Guggenheim are just the beginning. Conduct a little research, and you’ll find no shortage of niche galleries and museums offering everything from Himalayan textiles to post-modern American artworks. Take a stroll through Chelsea and the Lower East Side, and you’ll discover a variety of open studio spaces inhabited by cutting-edge working artists.
A melting pot of cultures
Calling New York City diverse is an understatement.
The bustling mecca is home to over 200 nationalities. You’ll find a traditional, steaming noodle shop just a few blocks away from an authentic Italian eatery and a 100-year-old Jewish deli neighbouring an up-market boutique and fashion house. Strolling down the city’s streets and winding your way through its character-filled neighbourhoods is truly the best way to experience New York.
