Why New York is such a great destination

I want to be a part of it, New York, New York, sang Frank Sinatra way back when. And we agree, who does not want to be a part of  New York?

The city of New York

It’s a city that’s vibrant, energetic, moving with a speed which seems to outpace any other city in the world,  incredible, breathtaking, trendy, luxurious, the list can fill four pages easily.

Divided in famous neighborhoods, Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Staten Island and Queens and immortalized in many movies, New York seems to be made of delights and highlights. Manhattan brings Central Park dating back to 1857 – where New Yorkers and tourist hang out and where you can go horse back riding, cycling or jogging, The Empire State Building, Grand Central terminal where they serve 62 different kinds of oysters in the Oyster bar and Times Square & the latest Broadway shows. 

There is also trendy Bronx with its botanical gardens and Brooklyn – by some considered seriously suburbian – but still happening – many possibilities for great events and incentives.

With so many new venues, restaurants, place and activities, you need an excellent partner on the ground. We, at The Shackman Group, would be delighted to be your DMC in New York.

Broadway show

A true New York evening is in the cards for tonight – a night on Broadway!


Everyone knows their 5 senses: sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch; but have you ever explored these senses in a New York City fashion? Today, our guests will be taken on a journey through the City to re-discover these basics like a true New Yorker.

We will start our day by heading downtown Manhattan to the heliport. Here our guests enjoy a view from the city that not many people get to see – from the sky. Our guests board the helicopter and taking the south route of the Hudson River they will be able to see from the Empire State building to Ground Zero and flight around the statue of Liberty finishing back Downtown after this breathtaking helicopter ride above the city. (weather permitting)

The next sense that we revisit is touch: we will head over to see one of the most iconic pets of the City: the bull. Grabbing the bull by its horns is a must in NYC! Symbol of aggressive financial optimism and prosperity, our charging Bull stands Downtown as a talisman for Wall Street traders and a source of pride for all New York City residents.
Everyone will have to touch the bull for financial luck throughout the year!
