How Should You Get Around New York?
If you've never been to New York, you should know that the traffic snarl of the city is very real. If you try to drive, take a taxi or rent a limousine, you're going to find yourself fighting large swaths of crowds instead of watching tennis. Instead, booking a helicopter charter is an excellent way to get around the traffic and get to the Billie Jean King Tennis Center.
Terrace on the Park was built as a helipad, and it's the best way to get from Manhattan to the stadium. Rather than fighting the crowds on the subway or on New York's roads, trust LunaJets to book you a helicopter transfer so you can avoid the traffic.
How Should You Plan for the Matches?
One of the first things you should do each day is take a look at the tournament's posted schedule. The biggest names will play in Arthur Ashe Stadium or Louis Armstrong Stadium, but only so many matches can be played at the USTA's two show courts. That said, if you absolutely want to see one of your favorites play at one of the stadium courts, that's where you should spend your time when they're scheduled to play there.
If your favorite player isn't scheduled to play on one of the big courts, you might want to purchase a grounds pass. Much like going to Wimbledon, a grounds pass gets you access to the courts outside of the two show courts. In the early rounds, you'll find action on several of the smaller courts. Many people who come to Flushing Meadows opt for a grounds pass in the earliest rounds, then watch at the stadium courts in the later rounds, when all matches move to Ashe and Armstrong.
What Else Should You Do in New York?
Obviously, if you're hiring a private jet charter for the U.S. Open, you're going to be focused on attending matches at the Billie Jean King Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows. But with so much else available to do in New York, you'll want to take some time to enjoy the city's sights, sounds and restaurants. With 68 Michelin-starred restaurants in New York, you won't find a better place for food in the United States. If you can think of a cuisine, you'll find it in New York.
Beyond the eats, you should plan on enjoying some of the famous landmarks of New York. The Statue of Liberty is an icon of the city, as is the famous Central Park. If you're a culture lover, you'll enjoy checking out the Metropolitan Museum of Art or a live show on Broadway.
Where Should You Stay in New York?
Staying in New York means picking the section of the city where you'll stay. Most people opt to stay in Manhattan, although you'll find a few nice hotels in Brooklyn as well. For a truly luxurious experience, Pendry Manhattan West offers floor-to-ceiling views of the city as well as spacious, comfortable rooms and easy access to restaurants and nightlife. If you're into history, the St. Regis is one of the older hotels in Manhattan and still one of the best for luxurious service.
