At SUMMIT, we help guests from all over the world experience the Manhattan like a true New Yorker, and we provide natives with the space to fall in love with New York all over again.


September 21 is National New York Day, and we want to reiterate just how much our experience can transform the way you see the world around you. Nestled in the buzzing neighborhood of Midtown East, SUMMIT shines like a beacon of light and energy, standing proudly as an iconic part of the skyline. Throughout our mirrored rooms and immersive art installations, you’ll discover your perception reaching new heights.


National New York Day commemorates the rich and diverse history of the iconic city that never sleeps. The origins of this special day can be traced back to the early days of American history when the Dutch arrived in the area and established New Amsterdam, which would later become New York City. Throughout the centuries, New York has played a pivotal role in shaping the nation’s culture, economy, and identity. From the waves of immigration that gave birth to a vibrant melting pot of cultures to the towering skyscrapers that define its iconic skyline, New York has always been a symbol of ambition, opportunity, and progress.


Today, National New York Day serves as a tribute to the city’s enduring spirit, its indomitable residents, and the countless contributions that have made it an international symbol of aspiration and dreams. Whether you’re a resident or a visitor, this day is an opportunity to celebrate the essence of New York and all that it represents.
