The Truth about New York

Updated on July 14, 2017

New York, the city that never sleeps, attracts people from every corner of the world. It is no wonder that New York is one of the top destinations for tourists when planning a trip because it offers a unique history, historical landmarks, and monuments. Unlike any other city, tourists can easily travel all around the city using the famous subway of New York City, not to mention the nation’s most famous station, the grand central terminal, which also falls just in the way when on a subway train. New York is obviously the first city that comes to mind when the term skyscrapers is used. New York isn’t the birthplace of skyscrapers, Chicago is given that honor but even so, New York pulls more tourists due to its unique skyscrapers than probably any other city.

Attractions of NYC

Landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State building, and to top it all off, the One World Observatory, which allows tourists to experience New York City’s beauty all at once, are the greatest magnet pullers of tourists around the world. Central park, located in the heart of Manhattan, is the most visited park in the United States. Coming to the history of the city, NYC is home to a number of famous museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Museum of natural history.

The Hidden Reality of the City

Even though New York is known to be a city that attracts tourists through its materialistic factors such as the skyscrapers, museums, parks etc, there is a hidden beauty in the city that most people overlook and it is the real reason why everyone falls in love with the city.

Brooklyn of New York City is supposedly a world of its own. You can walk down a random street and witness ten different nationalities of people getting along and having fun. This is probably the most amazing thing about the city, not only does New York bring people of different backgrounds together, it makes them express themselves among each other, create understandings between them and ultimately spread love for everyone. The monuments, landmarks, skyscrapers and such things are the materialistic things that play a factor in attractions of New York City but the real gem of a reason behind NYC’s tourism is the diversity and understanding that people have. From neighborhoods like Little Italy, China Town, to Little Pakistan and more. These people bring from their countries their culture, values, dreams and become part of something bigger, something that makes United States united, the American Dream. Like they say, immigrants built America, the citizens of New York are one of the greatest reasons for that and act as a model to the world to love one another and tolerate each other with happiness.
