NEW YORK CITY
New York is probably one of the most interesting cities in the world. It has something to offer to everybody. If you are looking for culture you make the right choice visiting one of the hundreds great museums in the city.
If you want night-life: you are probably right in one of the famous clubs and discotheques of the city. Or if you just want relaxing holidays you better go to one of the famous parks N.Y. has to offer
I would recommend you to see Brooklyn Bridge if you are interessetad in great engeneering work. The Brooklyn Bridge is located across from City Hall Park. It is one of the great engineering milestones of the 19th century. Overlooking the East River, this historic crossing divides Manhattan and Brooklyn. Visitors are able to walk across the bridge for an excellent view of lower Manhattan, and there is a path for pedestrians and bicyclists that allows a contrasting view of the two boroughs.
The Brooklyn Bridge was the first suspension bridge build with steel.
N.Y. is also famous for hosting the UNO nations headquarter (like vienna does, too)
The buildings and grounds contain sculpture and other works of art donated by member nations. Here, in the Parliament of Man, history is made as representatives of member nations work to resolve international problems. A limited number of free tickets is available on a first-come, first-served basis, for meetings of the General Assembly and Councils, when in session, shortly before meeting times, 10:30am-3:30pm.
You can fulfill almost all your needs from high culture to wilderness inside the city limits, but if you are determined to see the surrounding areas, here are a few ideas for day trips out of the city.
There are some good beaches near New York and it’s possible to get to them for a day trip. Coney Island is the nearest, you can get there on the subway but I wouldn’t swim there because the water is pretty dirty as they say. A better bet is to check with the Long Island Railroad and inquire about their special beach packages which are available in June, July, and August.. For instance, you can get a round trip ticket to Long Beach on Long Island and a pass to use the beach for the day for about $12.
The Hudson River valley, north of New York City is very picturesque and even produced its own style of landscape painting, the Hudson River school. The town of Cold Spring is a small riverside community with small restaurants and antique shops with a dramatic view across the river. It’s especially attractive during fall foliage season.
As you can see New York offers something for everybody. If I would have the possibility I wouldn?t think twice and take the next plane directly to this amazing interessting city.
