New York City

New York City is full of iconic landmarks. The symbol of political freedom and democracy is a must-see. Located on 12-acre Liberty Island in New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty was a gift from the people of France. It was dedicated on October 28, 1886, and was designated a National Monument on October 15, 1924. Ellis Island was incorporated as part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument on May 11, 1965. Between 1892 and 1954, approximately 12 million steamship passengers entered the United States through the port of New York at Ellis Island. Also Times Square attracts million of tourists. This revitalized area of the city was once a place to avoid. No more! Now the heart of NYC is a safe, bustling hive of activity, with huge electronic billboards and lots to do. Visit Toys R Us, Lazer Park, MTV’s Total Request Live, Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum or the Hard Rock Cafe. Other nearby attractions include the Children’s Museum of Manhattan, the doll store American Girl Place and the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum.

Statue of Liberty

I have always seen Central Park in movies and Tv shows my whole life. I would love to just spend day exploring the park. Contrary to what you might think, New York City is the greenest city in America. The 843-acre Central Park, the most famous park in the city, is actually only the 5th largest. Jog, walk, bike, in-line skate, horseback ride, ice skate, rent row boats, play basketball, softball, soccer, tennis, enjoy special events and festivals in the city’s 1,700 parks and playgrounds, or just kick back and people-watch.
