Don't miss the opportuntity to witness the emotional start of the final leg on the remarkable 40,000nm endurance challenge. With the spectacular New York skyline and iconic Statue of Liberty National Monument as a backdrop, the start of this leg is one of the highlights of the race.
We can't get enough of this iconic city; experimental, edgy, fast-paced and urban, pleasure seekers will find it all in New York.
From the traditionally Jewish Lower East Side to Lower Manhattan's Chinatown, the Upper East Side and the bohemian areas of SoHo and Tribeca, there is much to explore. Each of New York City's rapidly-changing neighbourhoods has its own distinct flavour.
The world's largest selection of bars, restaurants, galleries, museums and shops are found here and you can be sure they will be global trendsetters. The Met, the MoMA and the Guggenheim are New York's most famous museums, but in Chelsea and the Lower East Side, you will find some of the newest artists exhibiting after their famous Thursday night opening parties. New York is all about living the high life - with yoga, outdoor cinema screenings, street food festivals and city glamping all taking place on rooftops.
Skyscrapers and buildings such as the Empire State Building and Rockerfella Plaza are open until late into the evening for panoramic vistas. And one of the city's newest attractions is the High Line, a former rail track turned urban park 30ft above street level.
Running from the Meatpacking District to the northern edge of Chelsea, the 1.45 mile-long walkway and gardens gives walkers the chance to escape the hustle and bustle below.
