New York Holiday Review.New York Attractions
A Taste of New York
Almost every American has gone or wants to go to New York City in New York State. This city of five major boroughs is the gateway to America for millions of European and Latin immigrants who now comprise the majority of the US population. As a tourist destination, New York has a lot to offer both artistically and culturally. This is why people from other cities and even country folks find something to like in this urban dreamscape. New York is one of the places in the world that you have to visit at least once in a lifetime. With the ubiquitous,” I love NY” shirt on your back and a list of affordable sites or a guide map; you can be as ready as anyone to explore this urban jungle.
The growing list of must see places include Central Park, Times Square, Art galleries, Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty, Empire State, Brooklyn Bridge, Ground Zero, NY Stock Exchange, Wall Street, and of course, Broadway. A quick tour of New York should have the following spots for a more comprehensive feel of the Big Apple:
Historical statue of liberty
For a bit of history, your tour should include the Statue of Liberty - a symbol of freedom and one of the most recognizable icons of the United States. The metallic statue is actually a gift from France and designed by the same person who created the Eiffel Tower. The parts were sent across the Atlantic and pieced together to what you see now as a monument to democracy. This landmark is one of the first vestiges of American territory that greeted the waves of European immigrants before they were processed in Ellis Island at the turn of the 20th century.
Times Square with its walls of animated and TV styled signs at the corner of Seventh and Broadway Avenues has become another remarkable icon of this multifaceted city. This is also where the famous ball is dropped every New Year’s Day. Do not forget to visit the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) where the major works of legends such as Van Gogh and AndyWarhol are immortalized for art lovers and history buffs alike to enjoy for generations. Images of the famous MarilynMonroe can also be found in this site, considered one of the top modern art museums in the world.
Another must see is Radio City Hall, home of the famous Rockettes whose Christmas Spectacular shows are watched by more than a million people every year. Be sure to visit Central Park as well, where you can see an excellent blend of architecture, landscape design, and urban planning located at the heart of New York’s concrete jungle. The park is the watering hole providing inspiration to millions of New Yorkers and visitors that use it every year.
If you are lucky enough, you can time your visit to watch some of the baseball games either at Yankee stadium or at Shea Stadium, depending on where your loyalty lies – either the Mets or the Yankees. The NY subway connects both sites. By paying two dollars, you get six subway rides for the price of five. By the way, the designer knockoffs at Canal street are a hit for skilled bargainers, but it only works for cash; so if you prefer credit, go to Macy’s, where they also accept coupons.
