It has become an icon of America and a welcome to those who come to the United States in search of a better world. These are the favorite New York touristic sites. Lady Liberty's coronet, as the sculpture is often lovingly known, has seven spines symbolising the seven seas through which it is intended to propagate release.
Empire State Building has attracted the interest of young and old alike: every year the Empire State Building attracts billions of people. The Empire State Building observation room on the 86-th level offers a stunning New York panorama. Located just South of Midtown, away from the cluster of skyscrapers in the heart of the mid-town and finance districts of the city, the Empire State Building is one of the few places in Manhattan with an open 360 degree panorama.
Brooklyn is the Brooklyn Bridging, constructed between 1869 and 1883, connecting Manhattan with New York. It is one of the most beautiful touristic places in New York. This imposing 1.8km long viaduct crosses the Eastern Brooklyn to Manhattan Canal. The Brooklyn Bridges became the biggest hanging bridges in the whole wide range.
More than 30 years ago, the American Museum of Nature Conservation, which presented its works to the general public in Central Park Arsenal, dedicated itself to conveying information and objects of anthropology and nature conservation - both past and present.
The four storeys of the building, from the huge skeleton of a huge pyramid of dinosaurs to the ultra-modern planetaryarium, are a huge play area for grown-ups and kids, especially for animal and scientific enthusiasts. The Central Park is in Manhattan between 59th and 110th Streets and between Fifth and Eight Ave.
There are several ponds, theatres, skating parks, wells, football pitches, many play areas and other amenities. The Central and the Metropolitan Museum of Art are also located here. Particularly on the weekend, when automobiles are not let into the parks, Central is a welcome haven in this frantic town.
The Chrysler is considered one of America's largest edifices, and the Chrysler is often on the covers of architecture textbooks and journals. Chrysler is one of the last Art Deco-Scrapers. They are Chrysler automotive decorations and the tower is based on a grill.
New York's finest offices are the Chrysler Building's granite flooring and many art deco designs such as the elegant lift doorframes. The Grand Central Terminal, built in 1913 - usually referred to as the Grand Central Station, although not necessarily technical - is another of the breathtaking Beaux Arts building in New York, with its 75-foot high glazed walkways and a domed roof carrying a wall painting of the constellation flowing over it - backwards (the artist must have been dyslexic).
You want to get up-close-up on New York Harbour. Travellers between Manhattan and Lower Manhattan are served by Steaten lsland ferries. New and old alike will love to visit it. You have a magnificent look at the harbour and everything it has to offers with the Saint Andrew Islands boat.
Sightseeing from both sides of the ship include Governors Island, the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, the lower Manhattan and Wall Street high-rises, Ellis Island and the Verrazano Narrows Bridge linking Staten Island to Brooklyn.
