New York

The most exciting city in the world has the liveliest gay community and the best gay nightlife than virtually any other big city in the world. Safe, welcoming and gay-friendly, New York City will make you feel as you belong.

There are so many gay and gay-friendly establishments in New York City that it can get a bit overwhelming. From relaxed bars to high-energy dance clubs, from hip lounges to cabaret piano bars, there’s literally something for every want here. There’s a reason they say “if you can’t find it in the Big Apple then it simply can’t be found”. If you seek the most obscure themed gay bar or the rarest of foods, chances are you will find them in New York.

Gay life is everywhere in New York. Once limited to Chelsea, Hell’s Kitchen and the Village, gay culture has now spread its wings to other areas of the city, as well. You can find a handful of gay and gay-friendly spots in Brooklyn, Queens, Upper West Side, or Park Slope.

The city that never sleeps greets its travelers with a plethora of landmarks and sightseeing. You can never run out of things to do, see, and experience here. Home to the world’s most recognizable landmarks and attractions, New York can satisfy even the pickiest traveler. From Times Square and Central Park to the Empire State Building and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Manhattan alone packs more famous icons than any other big city in the world.

Gay New York is on twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, and you will always find something to do.
