The city that never sleeps
When history meets hipness at a global center of entertainment, fashion, media, and finance then we talk about New York City! With historic streets of dignified brownstones and trendy bars and eateries, NYC has a lot to show. I stayed in the heart of the town at the DoubleTree by Hilton with an amazing view from the 35th floor!
Places I visited
- Times Square, the most frenetic part of NYC with the flashing lights that most of the New Yorkers avoid but for me the chaotic mix of huge flashing digital displays, the broadcasts, the naked American painted women etc were all a new amazing experience!
- The Memorial where the Twin Towers once stood.
- The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum with its famous architecture and the fine collection of art!It’s said that it is one of the greatest buildings of the 20th century!
- The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Two million works of art are representing 5000 years of history!
- The Central Park where you can find a spot to picnic, run, or just take in the greenery, especially on a sunny day.
- The Grand Central Terminal which is the world’s largest and busiest railway station.
- The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island which was the first glimpse of America for millions of immigrants.
- The Empire State Building which is recognized worldwide as it is a symbol for NYC.The views of the city from the 86th-floor deck are spectacular!
- I did some shopping at the famous 5th Avenue.
- By Cruising, I was provided a first-hand view of the historic and scenic shoreline.
- New York: the city that has so many things to offer!
