Whether you’re a true novice or already New York experienced, New York is always worth a trip because the city has so much to offer, so you will never get bored.
The program of this year’s incentive trip was correspondingly varied – the group had only 4 days/3 nights at their disposal.
The theme of the trip was “Rooftop” – on the first evening we headed by night (and during a blizzard) to the Empire State Building, the next day we visited the One World Observatory and the Top of the Rock at the Rockefeller Center. No matter from which angle – the view over Manhattan is simply breathtaking!
According to the motto, a rooftop bar was also a must: dancing on the roof terrace to “Empire State of Mind”, with a direct view to the Empire State Building and a cool drink in the hand – that’s what a New York party night must be like.
Visiting an NBA game in the famous Madison Square Garden was also a highlight – not only for the basketball enthusiasts: 20,000 excited fans, cheerleaders, hot dogs, craft beers and of course the basketball stars turned the evening into an unforgettable experience for everyone.
On day 3 we crossed the East River towards Brooklyn – and a multifaceted program followed:
Urban Art in Bushwick – in the very industrial quarter countless artistic graffities are waiting to be discovered and admired.
Brooklyn food tour – fresh cream cheese bagels with salmon from Rosenberg’s, pastrami sandwiches from Katz’s, original giant donuts, beers in New York’s oldest pub, pizza at Roberta’s, a burger from Shake Shak, ….no wish is left unfulfilled
Visiting New York’s most famous boxing club and watching locals and multiple world champions exercise
In Williamsburg, diving into a whole different New York and being caught in another world, the almost medieval world of the Satmar Jews.
As colorful and varied as the journey was, so colorful and varied was the end of the journey: a classic breakfast with pancakes and scrambled eggs in the American Diner directly on the Broadway – with singing waiters who perform Tom Jones or the most famous musical hits.
