You can also take taxis and buses from various parts of the Loop to the airports. As Chicago is a large city, the ride can be expensive depending on your starting point.

Arriving to New York

New York is one of the most interesting cities in the world, full of curious things to do and interesting people to meet. This city's pulsating heart is located in Manhattan, where you can find a sea of skyscrapers. Start your trip at 14th Street, once considered the most glamorous street in the city. If you are interested in the art and cultural scene, East Village is the place-to-be. Not to be missed Webster Hall or Yiddish Art Theatre either. Before your footsteps lead you exhausted to your hotel room, pay a visit to Tribeca and Greenwich Village for a bite and a drink. They are probably New York's most authentic neighbourhoods.
