New York City, the “Big Apple,” is certainly one of the world’s greatest urban centers. It contains so many attractions that a single visit is never enough. Travelers come back to the city often to truly experience its special atmosphere. New York’s many museums are among the world’s best; nothing compares to live theater on Broadway; shopping and the fashion scene in New York is also some of the finest available.
Let’s begin with the incredible museums. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the “Top 5” art museums in the world,
with works like Monet’s “Water Lilies.”
MOMA, the Museum of Modern Art, is equally prestigious, with wonderful paintings like Van Gogh’s “Starry Night.”
The Museum of Natural History is also one of the best of its type.
The buildings of New York City are some of the most magnificent skyscrapers in the world. Of course, the Twin Towers are sorely missed on the skyline.
but the Chrysler Building
and the Empire State Building still remain.
Rockefeller Center is still a major draw for tourists.
as is St Patrick’s Cathedral, right across the street.
Elsewhere in the city are the Statue of Liberty
and Ellis Island
and the Bronx Zoo, of the world’s greatest..
