New York, New York – so good they named it twice – is one of the most
fascinating, exciting and cultural cities in the world. Within the 20
square miles that comprise Manhattan can be found some of the world’s
greatest museums, shops and restaurants, as well as a spectacular skyline
that’s known the world over.

You could spend a lifetime in New York without experiencing everything
fully. Some of the sights that any first time visitor to New York must
see include the Empire State Building - for many years the world’s
tallest building - the immigration museum at Ellis Island, the Statue of
Liberty, Times Square and the United Nations Building.

One of the joys of visiting the city is simply   to wander through the
different and varied neighborhoods – Greenwich   Village, Chinatown, the
Theater District, Harlem and Little Italy. The   outlying borough of
Brooklyn has several attractions including the   botanical gardens and the
famous amusement park at Coney Island.

One of the biggest attractions is the city’s diversity - in New York you
can hear virtually any language spoken and dine in a different ethnic
restaurant every night for a month. Apart from Manhattan, the borough of
Queens is also well known for its wide selection of foreign restaurants.

Shopping in New York is equally satisfying, offering world class
department stores with such famous names as Bergdorf Goodman and
Bloomingdales. At the other end of the shopping spectrum are street
markets, designer boutiques and specialty stores.

New York has some of the greatest museums in the world – several
conveniently located together at the edge of Central Park. The
Metropolitan Museum of Art attracts more visitors than any other place in
the city and offers everything from Egyptian mummies to 20th century
masterpieces.

On the other hand the city has over 50 smaller but fascinating museums
dedicated to such diverse subjects as firefighting, tenement living and
the history of finance. Children are not forgotten – there are several
museums aimed at children as well as the ever popular Bronx Zoo with its
more than 4,000 animals.

Since the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001, one of New York’s
biggest attractions has been the remains of the World Trade Center in
Lower Manhattan. More than a tourist attraction, to many it’s a site of
pilgrimage and a poignant reminder of the events of that day.
