Be a part of… New York!
New York is the ground zero of the today world. As was saying, so I feel. From movies, to books, all planted in my soul the idea: I want a ticket; I want to be part of life at least once in New York. The idea grew in me until the idyllic image of New York has become synonymous with paradise. Atypical with light panels, colorful crowds, buildings that scratches the sky, famous brands and bold dreams.
The privileged that have been born or walked there describe it as a real urban jungle. If you are not among them, you are dreaming at a ticket. Sure you imagine yourself at least once walking through Central Park, probing works of art of famous designers on Fifth Avenue (it’s healthy to keep common sense and we dream buying them), crossing the Brooklyn Bridge, or admiring everything from the height of the Empire State Building.
New York is divided into five administrative regions: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Staten Island. Each of them is different and charm. Situated on an island, Manhattan is the first that comes to mind when you think about New York and is the most visited. Almost entirely surrounded by water, the city has greatly expanded vertically. Therefore, in New York is the largest number of skyscrapers in the world, 4493, of which most are located in Manhattan.
Between skyscrapers, Chrysler Building is the most aesthetics building of New York, and the second as height. Worth a visit especially for architecture, considered emblematic of Art Deco. If Chrysler Building is the most beautiful building, Empire State is the most famous skyscrapers. Historical and architectural landmark, “character” in numerous films and one of the symbols of the city, Empire State Building, pencil-shaped building of New York, can not miss the list of places you have to see in a lifetime. Not even King Kong could not resist to climbing to the top. American Society of Civil Engineers have classified it as one of the seven wonders of the modern world. It was the tallest building in New York to build the twin towers and regained status at September 11, 2001 when the World Trade Center was destroyed after a terrorist attack.
His rise was a defiance of history, being completed even the Great Depression years. Over 120 million people have now reached 86 of the 102 floor of the building, where the observation deck. From there, the view over the city is absolutely great. Cement is a monster day, night turns to the fascinating web of lights. An image impossible to describe… you can not put into words the overwhelming feeling that you have there, the height of the Empire State. At his feet lies the whole world.
But to descend down to earth, specifically in Central Park. Located in the heart, lie 843 acres of nature, a true island green in a sea of tall buildings. Park attractions include Fountain of Bethesda, romantic restaurant Loeb Boathouse, Wollman Memorial Ice Rink, Sheep Meadow (Meadow sheep – a huge and perfect for beach grass), carousel with 58 hand carved horses and Conservatory Garden, a haven in the top of northeast of the park. In addition, if you happen to visit New York summer, you should know that Metropolitan Opera and New York Philharmonic performances organized here free.
The period in which New York reaches its peak of splendor is the holiday season. Americans love Christmas decorations and they are truly extraordinary. They also begin to go very early in the holiday spell. Since the end of November already feel the festive spirit. All December, New York celebration and light breathe through each corner. During this period people tend to go to the rink in Rockefeller Center, the most beautiful place on earth during this period.
For lovers of entertainment, the famous Times Square intersection is after dark, the perfect choice. In the 70 had fallen from grace were associated with drug trafficking and prostitution, but in 1990 and resumed his place in the top tourist attractions in New York after massive investments made by big business giants, including Disney. Today the area has been restored and is full of terraces, clubs, restaurants, theaters and cinemas.
I finally left the famous lady of America, the Statue of Liberty. Its full name is, Liberty illuminating the World “This was a gift from France offered in l885 as a symbol of friendship, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the independence of North America. Its construction is related to the name of another famous architect, construction logo, Gustav Eiffel.
