• Ridesharing law a year away in BC as government hires expert to

    first_imgVICTORIA – Ride sharing in British Columbia is at least a year away despite an NDP promise to bring in services like Uber and Lyft by the end of 2017 after the government announced the hiring of a consultant Monday to direct the way forward.Transportation Minister Claire Trevena said she understands people want ride-sharing services, but the minority government will not race ahead as its studies ways to ensure safety for passengers and a level playing field for the taxi industry.“We know that people are impatient for a change in the system,” she said. “We need to move in a sensible way, not a political way, but in a sensible way that respects the industry we have and respects the needs of people in B.C.”Trevena said the government hired transportation consultant Dan Hara to make recommendations by early next year that will help create a ride-sharing system that modernizes safety regulations and provides more choice and convenience for customers.Hara is based in Ottawa and has 21 years of experience advising government agencies on regulatory and transportation policy, she said. Trevena said Hara was commissioned in 2015 to study ride sharing for the City of Vancouver.She said the provincial government expects to introduce ride-sharing legislation next fall.But the Opposition Liberals said it appears the NDP put ride sharing on a journey that could take years to complete.“It’s unfortunate we’re not going to have any certainty here in terms of what part ride sharing is going to play in the transportation options of B.C.,” said transportation critic Jordan Sturdy.He said the Liberals are open to supporting a private member’s bill this week by Green Leader Andrew Weaver.In a statement, Weaver said he will introduce for the third time a bill to enable ride sharing.“I am very disappointed that the government will not keep its promise to bring ride sharing to British Columbians by the end of this year,” he said.The Greens and Liberals also promised to introduce ride sharing this year as part of their election platforms.Uber Canada spokeswoman Susie Hill said the company is committed to working with the government and all members of the legislature to develop regulations as soon as possible.Hill said in a statement the company is concerned that Uber and other ride-sharing operators are not named in a list of stakeholder groups who will form part of Hara’s consultation.The B.C. Taxi Association, which represents 140 taxi companies, welcomed the review and its focus on public safety.“It’s a right step toward the right direction,” association president Mohan Kang said in an interview.last_img read more

  • UN launches campaign for universal ban on sale prostitution of children

    25 May 2010The United Nations today launched a major campaign for universal adoption of treaty protocols that outlaw the sale of children, child prostitution and pornography, and protect youngsters in armed conflict, with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon calling for full ratification by 2012. “The sad truth is that too many children in today’s world suffer appalling abuse,” he told a ceremony at the headquarters of the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in New York marking the tenth anniversary of the adoption of the two optional protocols strengthening the Convention on the Rights of the Child by providing a moral and legal shield for youngsters vulnerable to prostitution and pornography or caught up in armed conflict.“Two-thirds of all Member States have endorsed these instruments. On this tenth anniversary of their adoption, I urge all countries to ratify them within the next two years.”Mr. Ban cited recent advances: the release three months ago by the Maoist army in Nepal, under UN supervision, of more than 2,000 soldiers who had been recruited as children; the UN-assisted freeing of children from the ranks of armed groups In Côte d’Ivoire; the prosecution by the International Criminal Court (ICC) of former Congolese militia leader Thomas Lubanga for war crimes against children.He noted, too, that fewer and fewer States now permit children to join the armed forces and reiterated his previous calls to the Security Council to consider tough measures on those States and insurgent groups that still recruit children.More countries are also reforming legislation and criminalizing the sale of children, child prostitution, child pornography and the sexual exploitation of children, with international cooperation helping to dismantle paedophile networks, remove child pornography from the Internet, and protect children from sexual exploitation by tourists.“Nonetheless, much remains to be done,” he declared. “In too many places, children are seen as commodities, in too many instances they are treated as criminals instead of being protected as victims, and there are too many conflicts where children are used as soldiers, spies or human shields.”UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake said the Optional Protocols “represent a promise made to the world’s most vulnerable children – children born into extreme poverty and despair, children in countries torn apart by conflict and children forced into unimaginable servitude by adults who regard them as commodities.” The Optional Protocol on the Involvement of Children in Armed Conflict has been ratified by 132 States; 25 States have signed but not ratified it and 36 States have neither signed nor ratified it. “We know from the situation on the ground that much remains to be done. Violence against children in all its forms remains a challenge for societies in the world,” Mr. Ban’s Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict Radhika Coomaraswamy said. “There are a multitude of conflicts where children are used as soldiers, spies, human shields or for sexual purposes. Every additional ratification of the Optional Protocol would therefore bring us closer to a world in which no child is participating in hostilities and forced to serve the national military or irregular armies.”The Optional Protocol on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography, has been ratified by 137 States; 27 have signed but not ratified and 29 have neither signed nor ratified it.“The Optional Protocol is an important tool for tearing through the mantle of invisibility surrounding the sale of children, child prostitution, child pornography and other forms of sexual exploitation, to mobilize societies and to translate political commitment into effective protection of children from all forms of violence,” Mr. Ban’s Special Representative on Violence against Children Marta Santos Pais said, citing significant law reforms to criminalize such crimes.At a later news conference UNICEF Deputy Executive Director Hilde Johnson cited called the use of child soldiers and their sale and misuse in pornography and slavery-like sex work as two of the most brutal abuses of children. “This has to come to an end, so the first step is to ensure universal ratification,” she said.Ms. Santos Pais praised the change that has taken place over the past 10 years, with new legislation introduced and protection system strengthened in most countries. “But unfortunately we are halfway. We are absolutely impatient to see this process of change touch upon the lives of all children in the world.” read more

  • Annan says recent military actions could damage peace process in DR of

    The fragile peace process in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is in danger of being reversed because of the recent military offensive against Uvira and other key locations in the eastern part of the country, according to a report by Secretary-General Kofi Annan released today.In his report to the Security Council on the work of the UN Mission in the DRC (MONUC), Mr. Annan urges all parties to cease hostilities and take advantage of the positive atmosphere and opportunities created by recent diplomatic initiatives.Noting that violence and abuses in the Ituri region have worsened in recent months, he voices hope that the establishment of a Joint Pacification Commission for the area would serve to restore peace and stability to that troubled region.Mr. Annan calls for an end to the “current culture of impunity that exists in many parts of the country.” Referring to the arrests of three persons in Luanda, Brazzaville and Kinshasa indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, the Secretary General stresses that “those responsible for serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law must be held accountable.”The Secretary-General also condemns threats and harassment against UN staff, including those working for Radio Okapi. “The instigators of the latest incidents in Kisangani and elsewhere in the DRC bear responsibility for such acts and must understand that, in order for peace and normalcy to return, the safety and security of UN personnel must be guaranteed,” he writes.Meanwhile in Pretoria, Mr. Annan’s Special Envoy, Mustapha Niasse, continued discussions over the weekend on an acceptable political transition with representatives of the Government of the DRC, the Movement for the Liberation of the Congo and the Congolese Rally for Democracy-Goma.The Envoy said while he remained optimistic about the ongoing talks, many key issues still require further discussions by the various parties. read more

The White House Office of American Innovation is hosting a series of working sessions to generate ideas to transform and modernize Government Services. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh) WASHINGTON – The White House on Monday urged technology CEOs to pitch in on President Donald Trump’s effort to modernize government.“Our goal is to lead a sweeping transformation of the federal government’s technology that will deliver dramatically better services to citizens, stronger protection from cyberattacks,” said Trump, adding that the possible changes could produce up to $1 trillion in savings over 10 years.Apple CEO Tim Cook and Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google parent company Alphabet, were among those attending an afternoon of working groups on issues like technology infrastructure, cybersecurity and visas for foreign workers. Trump has spoken out against illegal immigration and signed an executive order banning travellers from six Muslim-majority countries, a source of tension with technology firms.“We’re working very diligently with everybody, including Congress, on immigration so that you can get the people you want in your companies,” the president said.The administration drew a mix of flattery and policy requests from the assembled technology leaders and university officials. Cook, the Apple CEO, requested that computer coding be taught in every public school. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said workers need more skills for a technology-based economy. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos encouraged the government to use commercial technology to save money and develop artificial intelligence to improve government services.Venture capitalist John Doerr asked for the government to open up its databases to private firms, saying it would transform health care.“If you set the data free, the entrepreneurs are going to do the rest,” he told the president.The gathering was the first event for a technology-focused effort within the White House Office of American Innovation, which seeks to overhaul government functions using ideas from the business sector. Several of the executives complimented Jared Kushner, senior adviser and son-in-law to Trump, and his wife, Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and a senior adviser, for helping to drive the initiative.Kushner cited some examples of the current technology infrastructure, noting the use of floppy discs in Pentagon “legacy systems.”Some technology executives have clashed with Trump over his decision to exit the Paris climate accord. Leaders at Apple and Google were among the American corporate executives who appealed to the president to stay in the pact. Nearly 100 major technology companies — including Facebook, LinkedIn and Intel — also opposed the administration’s travel ban in February.But other companies have supported aspects of the Trump agenda. IBM was prominent last week during the White House’s push for apprenticeships. Intel unveiled plans at the Oval Office in February to invest more than $7 billion in an Arizona factory, a move Trump portrayed as a win for U.S. workers.White House spokesman Sean Spicer said the administration was focusing on technology this week. He said there was “a lot of room for optimization in the federal government.” Tech CEOS visit White House to talk modernizing government read more

  • Rebel group responsible for grave violations in DR Congo massacres says UN

    The report says that the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) committed the violations, which were systematic and extremely brutal, and which may amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity, over a three-month period at the end of 2014 in Beni territory, North Kivu province.“In light of the magnitude and the persistence of the attacks by ADF combatants, I call upon the Congolese authorities to take, as soon as possible, all the necessary measures to put an end to the massacres of civilians,” said the Special Representative of the Secretary-General in the DRC, Martin Kobler.In total, ADF combatants attacked 35 villages, killing at least 237 civilians, including 65 women and 35 children, between 1 October and 31 December 2014, with a further 47 civilians wounded, 20 abducted and two sexually abused. The attackers used machetes, hammers and knives, among other weapons, to wound or execute civilians. Some had their throats slit, were shot at while trying to flee or were burned alive in their homes. Several cases of looting and destruction of property were also documented.The report details the results of in-depth investigations conducted by the UN Joint Human Rights Office in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (UNJHRO) and features more than 180 testimonies from victims, witnesses and others. It concludes that the total number of victims could be much higher as human rights officers encountered many difficulties in conducting their investigations and could not access some areas for security reasons.Also documented in the report are violations of international humanitarian and human rights law committed in the same period by members of the Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (FARDC) in operations against the ADF. Investigations by the Congolese authorities into massacres in Beni led to the arrests of at least 300 people, including around 33 FARDC members. Two FARDC officers and four ADF leaders were convicted by Congolese military justice authorities in November 2014 for the killing of the FARDC General Mamadou Ndala and for participation in an insurrectional movement. “I welcome these initial steps towards justice, but urge the authorities to redouble their efforts to hold to account all those implicated in the series of truly horrendous crimes that ravaged the Beni area last year,” said UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein. read more

In the absence of sufficient supply of social housing, the private sector is not capable of delivering the housing needed to respond given the sheer scale of the problem.

Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email Newly released letters shine light on McCarrick allegations Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,NAIROBI, Kenya (RNS) — As disputes over homosexuality continue to stir within the worldwide Anglican Communion, conservative African bishops say they will boycott a decennial gathering of top clerics next summer unless what the Africans consider godly order is restored.After delaying the Lambeth Conference, normally held once a decade, for two years, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the global leader of Anglicanism, has invited all active bishops and their spouses to the United Kingdom in July and August of 2020 — except the spouses of bishops who are in same-sex unions.But the African bishops object to the invitation of bishops in the communion who are in same-sex unions. Those bishops’ presence, the Africans say, constitutes an endorsement of homosexuality, which they reject as contrary to the Scriptures.Anglican Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit speaks in Nairobi, Kenya, on May 19, 2016. RNS photo by Fredrick Nzwili“I will not be at the Lambeth Conference for those reasons. Others are also boycotting,” Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit of Kenya told Religion News Service in an interview. “God’s plan of marriage is between a man and woman for procreation. Homosexuality is a sin before God.”Sources said representatives from Nigeria and Uganda, two provinces of the communion with large populations of Anglicans, would also stay home. Both Archbishop Nicholas Okoh of Nigeria and Archbishop Stanley Ntagali of Uganda strongly oppose homosexuality as un-Christian.Nigeria has the highest number of Anglicans within the communion. Uganda is third after U.K., with Sudan and Kenya following.Slated for summer of 2018, the Lambeth Conference was delayed for the first time in its 150-year history when Welby said in 2014 he intended to visit every province before calling the conference, in hopes that all active bishops would attend.His failure to avoid a boycott by the African provinces widens the split within the communion, which has struggled to stay together despite doctrinal differences over the ordination of gays and blessing of same-sex unions.Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, center, during a 2013 visit to Nairobi, Kenya. RNS photo by Fredrick NzwiliThe Rt. Rev. Mary Glasspool, a bishop in the Episcopal church’s Diocese of New York, is married to Becki Sander. On June 22, the Rev. Thomas Brown is due to be consecrated to lead the Diocese of Maine. He is married to Rev. Thomas Mousin. In Canada, suffragan Bishop Kevin Robertson of Toronto married Mohan Sharma in December 2018.All three have planned to attend, though the bishops of the New York Diocese wrote an open letter to Welby in February objecting to his policy excluding same-sex spouses.Shortly afterward, Okoh, Nigeria’s primate, or senior bishop, wrote, “With great sadness, we therefore have to conclude that the Lambeth Conference of 2020 will be an obstacle to the gospel.”Archbishop Nicholas Okoh, the primate of the Anglican Church of Nigeria. RNS photo by Fredrick NzwiliOkoh is a member of the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON), a network of roughly a dozen conservative bishops — some of them not recognized by the worldwide communion — formed at the time of the last Lambeth Conference, in 2008, to protest the inclusion of two gay bishops from the U.S. and Canada.On May 6, GAFCON’s Primates Council, meeting in Australia, issued a statement saying GAFCON’s delegates in an earlier meeting in Jerusalem had urged the bishops to shun Lambeth 2020 if godly order was not restored in the communion. They said Welby had not responded or acted on their concerns.“The incoherence further tears the fabric of the Anglican Communion and undermines the foundation of reconciliation,” said the statement.GAFCON has planned its own conference in the Rwandan capital, Kigali, to allow those who will not be attending the Anglican Communion gathering in the U.K. to fellowship together.

  • How Atari almost released its own home version of Unix years before

    first_imgIn the millennium we’re sort of used to every device under the sun being able to run some variation of Linux, whether that’s the Sony PlayStation 3 or your mom’s digital photo frame, but back in 1985, the landscape was very different indeed… which is what makes this post by Landon Dyer over at Dadhacker so fascinating, as it describes how the Atari ST very nearly ran Unix.Unix. AT&T Unix, to be precise. According to Dyer, Atari managed to negotiate itself a jaw-droppingly cheap license with AT&T for $10 per seat, which prompted Atari to seriously consider selling a version of Unix to the general public… and which could have made Atari’s version of Unix a dominant end-user platform long before Linus Tovalds ever started tinkering with Linux.AdChoices广告Of course, it never happened. Why? Because the Atari ST had no real memory controller, and they could never figure out how to get around that, or add on a cheap enough piece of hardware to fix it.To run Unix effectively we needed some hardware that was very fast, that was simple enough to put into a minor spin of the ST’s memory controller with little project risk, and that would still provide some kind of memory relocation and protection. The ability to have separate address spaces to isolate processes would be good, too.“If you can come up with something that takes about a gate delay, I’ll put it in,” said John, the memory controller guy. He seemed dubious, but willing to listen. It’s fantastic reading. Imagine what could have been. Maybe instead of all using Linux-based systems, we’d be running Atinux-based ones instead?Read more at Dadhacker [via Crunchgear]last_img read more

  • Gozi banking Trojan author ordered to pay 69 million to his victims

    first_imgThe Gozi banking Trojan was cutting edge malware when it surfaced back in 2007. It bilked innocent people out of millions of dollars, and now one of its creators has been ordered to pay up.At its peak Gozi boasted an army of more than a million computers, at least 40,000 of which belonged to unsuspecting Americans. Cybercriminals could pay Gozi’s creators for access to a portal that helped them set up customized injections that fooled customers into handing over social security numbers and payment card details.28-year-old Nikita Kuzmin was identified as one of the Gozi crew, and he was eventually arrested in 2010 by US authorities when he came to the country to attend a conference. He remained in custody for just over three years before being released, according to Reuters, “for reasons that remain unclear.” It’s believed that he may have agreed to provide assistance to investigators to reduce the length of his sentence.Although he ended up serving less than half the prison time that officials had recommended, it turns out that wasn’t the end of Kuzmin’s punishment. He’s now being ordered to pay a fine of $6.9 million to offset Gozi victims’ losses.While it’s unlikely that he’ll ever have to fork over anywhere near the full amount, it might not be all that hard for him to come up with the money. He may, for example, just be able to hit up his old man. Kuzmin’s father is apparently Russian rock legend Vladimir Kuzmin, who some consider to be the former Soviet Union’s answer to Bruce Springsteen.last_img read more

Volcano Ultramarathon Costa Rica 2019 will take runners through rainforests, up volcanoes and back down by rivers and waterfalls. The race begins April 7 and concludes April 13. Though the official route map has not been revealed, the ultramarathon will include a 70 km stage from Turrialba Volcano to the Pacuare River. The penultimate race day will feature jungle and volcanoes, and the race will end with a timed stage along Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast. “Each runner will endure long periods of heat, humidity and solitude,” reads the race pack, which also projects participants will endure temperatures ranging from 40 to 85 degrees. And on top of that, runners will be responsible for carrying their own equipment — including food and water. The main attraction, according to race organizers, is the unique running experience across various ecosystems and the camaraderie of group camping. “Very varied terrain, from jungles to forests, mountains and beaches; this, added to the harsh climate in itself and self-sufficiency, will make this event epic for each runner,” the race pack reads. For the non-ultramarathoners among us, Volcano Ultramarathon Costa Rica is also hosting a 39 km race from Guapiles to the Turrialba Volcano on April 10. That run features more than 2,800 meters (about 9,300 feet) of elevation gain. The April 10 Volcano TrailMarathon will “run parallel” to the fourth ultramarathon stage, and the route has been published. Powered by WikilocRace organizers say $10,000 in prizes will be distributed to the top ultramarathon finishers.​​​​​​This story was made possible thanks to The Tico Times 5% Club.

  • UN report on Haiti rape shows few prosecutions

    first_img New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths They also noted that police officers don’t always tell rape victims that they should try to obtain a medical examination within 72 hours after an attack.But the U.N. report recommends that government officials ensure that police and judicial authorities understand that a medical certificate is not required to file a rape case. In Haiti, it is often difficult for rape victims to obtain medical records because they cannot pay for transportation or may fear retaliation.The report also recommends that the government set aside more money to agencies helping women such as the Ministry of Women’s Rights. Only 1.4 percent of the national budget was allocated to the ministry in the proposed budget for 2011-2012.A spokesman for the Haitian National Police couldn’t be immediately reached, and the government’s press office didn’t immediately response to a request for comment.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Top Stories None of the 62 rape complaints went to trial more than a year after they were filed with police, the U.N. report said.The government prosecutor’s office in Port-au-Prince reviewed only 25 of the 62 cases, and ordered the judicial authorities to investigate 11 of them.Four of the 11 cases were dismissed, while the rest remain under investigation. As of December 2011, only one the 62 cases in the sample period had been referred for trial, but the trial had not begun.The U.N. report found other concerns.Prosecution proved difficult in part because there was no accurate information on rape cases in Port-au-Prince. There is no national database that documents cases of sexual violence, which means that data from the government, aid groups and U.N. sources are not comprehensive.The report’s authors said many records were destroyed in a devastating 2010 earthquake, which toppled thousands of buildings, including government offices and police stations. Advocacy groups have expressed alarm over what they say has been an unusually high number of rapes in the spontaneous settlements that sprang up in the capital and other cities in the quake’s aftermath.The U.N. report’s authors said police and judicial authorities lack even the most basic resources to do their jobs, such as computers, vehicles and furniture.

  • The best things to see and do in New York

    first_imgThe Whispering GalleryAside from appreciating the architecture of Grand Central Terminal, another reason to visit is to hear the Whispering Gallery in action. The low-arched design allows whispers to be carried across the ceiling and arrive clearly at the corner diagonally opposite you. You’ll find this secret spot opposite the Oyster Bar & Restaurant in the station’s basement dining area. Photo credit: Robert Bye Photo credit: Sean Pavone All flight and prices mentioned in this article are estimates of the cheapest prices based on Skyscanner’s flight search tools. These are subject to change and were correct at time of writing on 14 May 2019. Fly to New York from £231 Photo credit: The Wagner Hotel Off to the Big Apple? Stop everything and read our ultimate travel guide. In a city so big and so iconic, it’s hard to know where to begin. We’ve rounded up the top sights plus a few you won’t have heard of, hotels for every budget and some of the best restaurants in town. When is the best time to visit New York? Now you know the Big Apple like the back of your hand, book your adventure to the States: For the budget-friendly traveller – POD 51 Location: 230 East, 51st StreetSituated in midtown Manhattan and in walking distance of Times Square, the Rockefeller Center and the theatre district. POD 51’s rooms (or pods) offer budget-friendly options on standard rooms with a shared bathroom. Or why not upgrade to an ensuite for a little more privacy. Regardless of your bathroom choice you’ll have excellent views of this glass city from the rooftop terrace. Rooms start from £71. For a sustainable stay – Wyndham Garden Brooklyn Sunset Park Location: 457 39th Street, BrooklynSituated in the heart of Brooklyn and close to Sunset Park, this trendy eco hotel works to conserve natural resources and reduce its carbon footprint. For New York’s tourist hubs you’ll have plenty of public transport options to get you over to Manhattan, with the N, R and D subway lines in easy reach. Rooms from £183. A hidden streetConsidering New York’s block-lined grid, a hidden street is quite the feat. The Mysterious 61/2 Avenue runs between 6th and 7th from 51st to 57th Street. It’s a fully pedestrianised section that’s a secret even to most New Yorkers. Times SquareThis busy intersection feels like the advertising centre of America – it also claims the spot as the most visited place in the world (131 million people a year and counting). To soak in the atmosphere, find the red stairs above the TKTS ticket booth and take a seat. We’d recommend doing this at night when the famous lights are at their most dazzling. What do I need to know about the Big Apple? These are the landmarks you’ve seen in the movies, the ones everyone tells you to visit and the places you want on your Insta feed. We’ve even thrown in a few insider tips and tricks to help you avoid all the normal tourist pitfalls. We’ve found the best hotels for every budget and in the best locations to make sightseeing a breeze. The main sights are either within walking distance or a few stops on the subway. The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met)The Met is so big it requires three locations. An adult ticket may seem steep at $25 (£20) but you’ll have access to The Met Fifth Avenue, The Met Breuer and The Met Cloisters – you can pop by any of them within three consecutive days of buying your ticket. Current exhibitions range from Art of Native America to Instruments of Rock & Roll. That’s the cultural side of your holiday sorted. Photo credit: Mihai Andritoiu Photo credit: Junior’s Restaurant Search New York hotels Where should I grab a bite to eat? The High LineThis was once a lesser-known attraction, but the word is out and the High Line is now a must-see sight. Built on a historic elevated freight line, the High Line is a public space set across 2.3km showcasing the best in food, design and unique outdoor performances. There are free guided tours every Tuesday evening (6.30pm) and Saturday morning (10am). Simply turn up 15 minutes beforehand to join in. Or for something more unique, you can take part in a stargazing session on Tuesdays at dusk between April and October. Meet the star crew on the High Line at 14th Street. If you need a snack en route, grab an ice cream sandwich from Melt Bakery on the High Line at 22nd Street. Queens MuseumIf you’re spending a weekend in New York, you might not have time to see all the sights… so it’s a good job the Queens Museum have put them in one place. The impressive panorama of New York City is built on a 1:1200 scale (100 feet is condensed into each one inch square) i.e. it’s tiny! You can even adopt a building and take home the miniature title deeds of your investment (a.k.a the best souvenir ever). Donations start at $100 for an apartment and go above $1,000 for more iconic buildings. Open Wednesday to Sunday, 11am-5pm with a suggested admission of $8 (around £6) for adults while under 18s go free. For a Great Gatsby experience – Hotel Edison Times Square Location: 228 West, 47th Street Sat only 400 metres from Times Square, this hotel is full of swinging art-deco features. Named after American inventor Thomas Edison, the man himself turned on the hotel lights back in 1931 by remote control from his New Jersey home – how modern. Rooms start from £106. Looking for something a little different? These lesser-known sights will help you avoid the crowded hotspots and make you feel like a proper New Yorker. For the perfect trip to New York, you’ll want the weather to be on its best behaviour and luckily across the pond it’s (a little bit) more reliable.Winter is cold and often comes with a bucketful of snow – but it does make the run up to Christmas extra festive (and gives you an excuse to drink mulled cider in the markets).Summer on the other hand is hot and can reach the 30ºC mark. June to August is deemed the high season and brings the most crowds. That leaves spring and autumn as the optimum choice – the weather is pleasant and there are fewer crowds.However, if you want to do New York on a budget, travel from late January to February when hotel prices are often lower. For the eco warriors – ABC KitchenLocation: 25th East, 18th Street Thanks to Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, ABC Kitchen offers the freshest menu around. As strong supporters of the slow food movement, there are no pesticides or synthetic fertilisers in sight. All the ingredients are locally sourced, none more so than the herbs grown in their own garden on the roof. Even the interior is created out of reclaimed and recycled building materials. center_img Search hotels in New York The Statue of LibertyFor a free – yes free – boat ride, which takes in Lady Liberty, a gift given to New York by the French 130 years ago, take the Staten Island Ferry from Whitehall Ferry Terminal over to Staten Island. Ferries depart every 15-20 minutes.  For a trip that includes access to Liberty Island, take the Statue Cruise Ferry from either Battery Park in New York or Liberty State Park in New Jersey. After you’ve visited the iconic statue, it’s also worth hopping off at Ellis Island. Between 1892 and 1954, the island saw 12 million immigrants pass through and enter America. You’ll want a couple of hours here to explore the museum and take in a different view of Manhattan’s skyline.Ferry tickets include both islands and start at $18.50 (£14) if you want to climb to Liberty’s pedestal, and $21.50 (£17) to reach her crown. But be quick, tickets to the crown sell out fast. Plus, you’ll have to be willing to trek up 162 “narrow and tight” steps to the top. Download the Skyscanner app Fly to New York from £231 Find hotel dealsCheck-inCheck-outGuests12345678910Rooms12345Search hotels For the herbivores – Superiority BurgerLocation: 9th East Street,1st Avenue“Everything is vegetarian. A lot is accidentally vegan” is the tagline of this specialist restaurant with a short but sweet menu which changes daily. Google ‘Superiority Burger’ and you’ll be met with endless comments on the ‘Best Veggie Burger in New York’. Now you’ve discovered the best, if you can’t bear to leave the mouth-watering burgers behind, you can always take them home in the form of the Superiority Burger Cookbook. Central ParkA green oasis in an otherwise glass city, Central Park has various walking trails and paths, statues and fountains. Aim for the lake, roughly along the line of 74th Street, and hire a boat for a different take on the park (a rowing boat cost $15 (£12) plus a $20 deposit and can fit four adults). Or for something a little different, take an open-air yoga class alongside the New Yorkers. There are morning and evening classes dotted across the wee. You’ll need to book online for your preferred slot. Cost: $20 for 75 minutes of yoga. For the best dessert in NYC – Junior’s Location: Brooklyn (386 Flatbush Avenue) 45th Street (1515 Broadway) 49th Street (1626 Broadway)Junior’s has been making its world-famous cheesecake since 1950. There are three restaurants all with that old-school American diner vibe in the New York area still run by the same family. Once you’ve picked a restaurant, deciding on your cheesecake is where the fun begins. There’s the Famous No1 Original Cheesecake or the more intriguing Devil’s Food Cheesecake (but it’s the Brownie Explosion variety that has caught our eye). Alongside the bakery they also have a full breakfast and restaurant menu – but we’d come for the cheesecake alone. Parley ParkFor a break from the sightseeing, grab a chair and sit beneath the low canopy of trees in this city-centre park. It’s a quiet oasis away from the chaos of Manhattan, with a 6-metre waterfall and an impressive tunnel behind the water. Once upon a time, you would have found five sections of the Berlin Wall on display here. To protect it from wear and tear, this piece of history has been moved. Now you can find it inside the lobby of the building that surrounds the park. Don’t miss it on your visit – it’s been painted by German artists Thierry Noir and Kiddy Citny too. What about some other under-the-radar sights? Brooklyn BridgeOpened in 1883 and standing 84.3 metres above water, Brooklyn Bridge is almost a synonym for New York. To get that picture for your Insta grid start at DUMBO (no, not the Disney film but ‘Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass’) where you’ll find a crowd of camera-holding tourists and a postcard-worthy view. You’ll spy Manhattan’s lights by night and the Statue of Liberty by day. For photos without heaps of tourists in the background, arrive in the early morning. Search for hire cars For the carnivores – Gallagher’s Steak HouseLocation: 52nd Street between Broadway and 8th Avenue.This is a first-class restaurant and a New York landmark in its own right. Visitors come from across the city to pose in front of the famous meat locker, a glass enclosure where you can see your dinner hanging before you even set foot inside. The menu may be simple, but with a focus on the meat, it’s effective and one of the few steak houses still using traditional hickory coals to cook steak. Photo credit: Dai Lopez The Empire State BuildingThis 102-storey art deco building was completed in 1931 when health and safety most certainly did not exist. There are two observation decks on the 86th and 102nd floor (although it’s worth noting that the 102nd floor is closed for refurbishment until 29 July 2019). Everyone is keen to catch golden hour at the top, which makes sunset a particularly busy time of day. For photos without a strangers’ head in frame, midday is often quieter. Tickets start at $36 (£28).  If you want to look over New York’s skyline with the iconic Empire State Building in view, visit the Top of the Rock instead. The Rockefeller Center’s 70th floor observation deck ticket costs $32 (£25). For the luxury traveller – The Wagner Hotel Location: 2 West Street, New York This is without a doubt an impressive hotel. Located in the southern tip of Manhattan, rooms can include views of the Statue of Liberty and towards Upper Bay (a.k.a New York’s harbour). You’ll be a stones-throw away from Battery Park, Wall Street and the September 11 Memorial Museum. Plus, the hotel offers free Manhattan bike tours every Friday at 2pm with the hotel manager at the helm. Rooms start from £374. For the modern vacationer – Aloft New York Brooklyn Location: 216 Duffield Street, Brooklyn This contemporary styled hotel is in downtown Brooklyn where Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens and Brooklyn Heights are all within walking distance. Plus, it’s only three subway stops from New York’s financial district. Here you’ll find the glittering skyscrapers that make up Wall Street, the new World Trade Centre and the September 11 Memorial Museum. Rooms start from £187. What are the sights I absolutely HAVE to see? For the later risers – Charlie’s Bar & KitchenLocation: 112 Lincoln Avenue, BronxExposed brickwork and a dark wooden interior combined with a strong menu – this is where to brunch in NYC. Embrace your inner millennial and add a side of avo to any dish for $5. We’d recommend pairing your brunch choice with a Henry from the block cocktail – for a morning glass of OJ with a holiday twist (and a slosh of Hennessey, lemon juice, ginger and mint for good measure). Brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays from 11am–4pm. BroadwayJust like the West End, Broadway shows are notoriously expensive. If you’re flexible on which show you’d like to see, you can grab a more budget-friendly option by visiting the TKTS ticket booth stand in Times Square for discounted on-the-day seats. Or, if you don’t fancy queuing, download the TodayTix app where you can book cheap seats or enter lotteries for any performance in the next week – that’s much more 21st century. Where should I stay?

First things first, New York runs on Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) which is four hours behind GMT. You’ll have a little bit of jet lag when you arrive but use this to your advantage and be at the main sights bright and early. Talking of jets, New York has three main airports that accommodate UK flights – JFK International, LaGuardia and Newark. LaGuardia is the closest to New York City and a taxi to Times Square will set you back $30 (£23). Taxi prices from JFK and Newark get closer to $60 (£46) but JFK and Newark both benefit from having public transport links into the city – your budget will thank us. For the best New York deals, you can search flights to all of New York’s airports using Skyscanner’s flight search from your home airport.For the cheapest flights to New York you’ll often end up flying into one airport and out the other (usually a mix of JFK and Newark) so keep an eagle eye on which terminal your departing flight is leaving from.The local currency is, of course, US dollars.
