The Statue of Liberty is the symbol not just of New York but of America. And Ellis Island epresents our nation, too after all, almost half of Americans can trace their ancestry back to this one island.
There’s nothing that beats a sunny day in Central Park. Definitely save this one for a nicer day rainy weather doesn’t allow you to truly enjoy the beauty that is essentially New York’s backyard.
One of the many wonderful things about New York is its diversity, and that is what you’ll experience when you visit Little Italy and Chinatown.
It’s the largest art museum in the United States and among the top visited museums in the world. The permanent collection alone has over 2 million works.
About three quarters of a million people pass through this place each day, making it one of the biggest and busiest stations in the entire world. Its size is impressive, but its architecture is worth admiring, too.
One of New York’s most unexpected attractions is tucked away on the west side of Manhattan. It winds back and forth along 10th Avenue and soars 30 feet above ground. Welcome to the High Line.
Don’t let the name fool you. There’s so much more to this neighborhood than money. The Financial District has a richer history (pun not intended but kind of nice) than any other neighborhood in New York.
A moving piece of artwork called “Reflecting Absence,” two memorial pools stand in the footprint of the towers, surrounding the museum on either side.
