Things to do in New York

  • Statue of Liberty Statue of Liberty New York City
    Officially named Liberty Enlightening the World, the Statue of Liberty was given to the land of the free in 1886 by the country of France. It was to celebrate the centennial of America, but has become a symbol of freedoms and opportunities to millions of people all over the world coming to this country for the first time; hoping, dreaming of becoming a citizen within their lifetime. Covered by copper and dedicated on October 28, 1886, she commemorates the signing of the Declaration of Independence; and as a representation of the friendship between two countries during the American Revolution. She was sculpted by Frederic Auguste Bartholdi, who received a U.S. patent for it, and the insides were completed by Gustave Eiffel's engineering company, who also build the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Eugene Viollet-le-Duc wanted copper to be used so that it could be hammered on the inside, which was called repousse technique. The statue was created with a pure sheathing of copper covering a framework of steel; except the torch that is coated in gold leaf; and was at first made of copper, but changed so that panes of glass could be installed so that people, visitors to the inside of the statue could look out over the waters and view New York City. She sits majestically on a stone foundation shaped like an eleven point star and is herself 151 feet tall, but on the foundation, she stands proudly at 305 feet high. She is probably the most recognized symbol of this country all over the world and when ships arriving in this country from around the world, she was the first sight that they saw. She is the main showcase of the Statue of Liberty National Monument and is taken care of by the National Park Service. Her classical appearance is replicated from the Roman Libertas, goddess of freedom from slavery, oppression and tyranny. With her mighty right foot raised, she is ever on the move to trample out the injustice of this country and anyone who might try to change the freedoms we have come to enjoy and love.

  • Real New York Tours
    What better way to see this great city than by taking a tour from people that live and work here. They promise no traffic jams or bus that sits in that traffic, but pavement pounding and subway riding the way real New Yorkers get around in the city that never sleeps. Their guides are people that live here and work here, shop, see the sights and sounds the way you want to learn about them. With private tours that will give you that wonderful personal attention and complete flexibility to help you discover the real city; its neighborhoods, show places, and restaurants that fill this city with all the excitement and fun that you have heard about. They will build a tour around what you want to see and help you decide the most important places to visit; according to your likes and desires. It is all up to you, they will make sure that you see and enjoy what interests you alone. If you have any disabilities, they will make accommodations for you and help you make the best choices based on that. Going back and forth through the streets of the city can be a daunting and dangerous journey for visitors and these great people know where to go and what to avoid. Some of the fantastic sights they will take you include Greenwich Village, Washington Square, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Saint Patrick's Cathedral, Brooklyn Bridge, Chinatown, Little Italy, St. Paul's Chapel, Ground Zero, South Street Seaport, Soho, Wall Street, the Dakota and Strawberry Fields. One of the less expensive tours is called the Dozen Apples group tour and starts at 10 AM in the morning. They only allow 12 people on this tour to keep it more personal and intimate, so you can get the full effect and enjoyment. A small quick lunch is offered in Little Italy and this is a fast pace tour. But you always have a guide to assist you in any details or problems; they work with you. You can buy an all day subway pass for $7.50 and travel anywhere the subway goes all day for that amount, or you can pay them $6.00 to take care of the tour rides. It will be about 6 hours long, so wear comfortable walking shoes and casual clothes. The half apple tour does a great tour in just half the time and visits Greenwich Village, St. Paul's Chapel, Little Italy, Chinatown, Brooklyn Bridge, Washington Square, Soho, South Street Seaport, Wall Street and Ground Zero. A great way to see the sights in this marvelous city and worry free about doing it.

  • Ground Zero Museum Workshop
    Ground Zero Workshop museum presents the visitor with memorable photographs, images and remnants from the ground zero recovery area. Its mission is simple and is as follows; raise the awareness of the heroic efforts of the workers at the sight by the exhibition of Gary Marlon Suson's photographic collection; use the collection by way of sales to help six worthwhile charities; educate students about the true impact of terrorism by views of the collection; assist people to connect on a deeper level of both tragedy and heroism that September 11 was made of, by viewing artifacts and items that were found in the rubble; honor the men and women that lost their lives on September 11, 2001; raise funds for the treatment and disabled ground zero workers; provide a place for the collection for the public's viewing since it will be some years before the museum will be built; and to provide an emotionally safe place for the children of the victims of this terrible event to visit, in their own time and own way, and hopefully use the collection and summary to understand what occurred at the ground zero recovery. Although, it will be most difficult for any American or other nationality that had family die there, to ever fathom the terrible pain and toll that the workers endured during that time of recovery and discovery.

  • Top of the Rock Observation DeckTop of Rockefeller Center Observation Deck, New York City
    The top of the Rock, or Rockefeller Center, reopened for visitors in 2005, and is less crowded than the Empire State Building, but the views are much more beautiful; especially at night. The top opened in 1933, with access from the 69th and 70th floors, and originally shaped to look like the upper decks of a 1930s grand ocean liner. Today, it is a three tiered observation deck on the 67th, 69th and 70th floors, over 260 meters above the ground and this panoramic view of New York City is unfathomable; with skyscrapers rising in the distance, set against a clear blue sky that shows off the majesty of this great city. The first two decks have big glass panels that will let you get fantastic pictures and unforgettable views of this city and the harbor area below. The top deck doesn't have the panels, just a wall and incredible views of Manhattan. You will also get a great view of Central Park and the Empire State Building, but won't be able to see the Chrysler Building. Here is where to get the very best sights of Manhattan and this month and next there will be the Starlight Music Series from 6 until 8 PM on the 67th floor observatory where the music is stupendous and wine is available at a cost.

  •  Frick Collection
    The Frick Collection is also an art museum that sits next to the Met in Manhattan, New York, and was the former residence of steel tycoon Henry Clay Frick; the home designed by Thomas Hastings and built around 1914.

  • Metropolitan Museum of Art Metropolitan Museum of Art New York City
    Known by many as the Met, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is the biggest encyclopedic art museum in the world under one roof, and art from all times and cultures are showcased. With new restorations still going on, the exhibition area has been expanded to a thousand by 500 feet and the building is owned by the city, while the collections are owned by benefactors and fellows. Admission is voluntary and a suggested amount is only half the visitor cost of operating this magnificent treasure. Perhaps, the most prominent include the American wing, the Egyptian exhibit that includes the Temple of Dendur, 19th century European paintings and the Roman and Greek galleries. Numerous temporary or rotating collections are showcased at various times and much of the medieval collection and architectural artifacts are at the Cloisters Museum in Fort Tyron Park in the northern part of Manhattan; which belongs to the Met as an extension. Over 5 million visitors come to be mesmerized each year and almost 40,000 a day visit making it the number one tourist destination in the city. During the Christmas holidays is the busiest times, with the staff advising you to visit the more popular exhibitions in the early morning and the less in the afternoon. It is open later on Fridays and Saturdays and closed on Mondays much of the time. Since the current financial crisis has placed an extra burden on many venues, some of the less visited galleries may be closed. There are numerous restaurants in the museum, ranging in costs from middle to expensive, with a big museum shop that carries art books and other related fine art items. The main entrance is on 82nd Street and Fifth Avenue, where steps lead up to the glorious entrance and a ground level entrance on 81st Street. It is located on the east side of Central Park, which is known as Museum Mile in the city and holds over 2 million works of art in 19 curatorial departments. The Egyptian section contains classical antiquity and ancient artworks, with big holdings of the Byzantine, Oceanic, African, Asian and Islamic art; paintings and sculptures from all the European masters and an extensive collection of American and modern art. It houses an encyclopedic collection of costumes and accessories, musical instruments, antique weapons and armor from around the globe. In some of the galleries, there are permanent interiors that cover the first century Rome to the modern era of American design. Started in 1870 by businessmen, leading artists, thinkers of the day and financiers wanting to bring art and its education to the American public. It covers over a quarter mile area and two million square feet. Each of the 19 curatorial departments has its own special staff that includes, scholars, curators and restorers.

  • New York City Central Park
    Sitting in the midst of Manhattan, New York City, is the 843 acre landscaped garden called Central Park, that was started in 1853, and has become one of the public urban parks in the nation today, with over 25 million visitors heading there each year. It became a National Historic Landmark in 1963, and contains the zoo, the conservatory garden, natural woods, Delacorte Theater, a reservoir with a running track going around it, two ice skating rinks with one turning into a pool in July and August, natural looking lakes and ponds and a wildlife sanctuary. It was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, a landscape architect and follow architect Calvert Vaux. It really looks like a natural park, but almost all of it was changed to create the wonderful and beautiful effect it is today. The theater holds the Shakespeare in the Park festival each summer and inside are the Belvedere Castle and its nature center; the historical carousel and the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater. There are numerous children play areas with huge green lawns set aside for informal sports or team sports. While containing its own wildlife, it is an oasis for migrating birds in the spring and fall, and a magnet for bird watchers; since over 200 species are seen each year. There are 6 miles of trails and drives where runners, walkers, skaters, joggers, and bicyclists use every day, and especially on the weekends. In December of 2005, property appraiser Miller Samuel stated the park is worth over half a trillion dollars in today's market.

  • Staten Island FerryStaten Island Ferry New York City
    The ferry runs between St George on Staten Island and Whitehall Street in lower Manhattan, in New York City; seven days a week and carries over 20 million people each year. The daily average is 60,000, not to include the weekend and is the only non-vehicular way to get between the two locations. The city's DOT runs and takes care of the 9 ferries and the terminal at St George on Staten Island, another at Whitehall Street, City Island and Hart Island facilities, all floating dock equipment and the Battery Maritime Building. There is only one reason the ferry has ever run and still does, and that is to get people from the island to Manhattan and back, for free; no cost at all. It is a fantastic bargain for visitors to come and ride the ferry and marvel at the majestic sights of the harbor, the city and all the beautiful boats and ships that come and go, as well as dock. It is five miles long and lasts for 25 minutes; but those minutes are wonderful. One of the extra bonuses of riding the ferry is the sights you see, like the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The fantastic buildings rising into the sky and the bridges of lower Manhattan will keep you enthralled through those short minutes; actually making the whole trip seem longer. Each day about five boats are used to move those 60,000 commuters and between the rush hours, the boats are refueled and maintenance problems checked and taken care of. Three boats are used for the weekends, 75 trips on Saturday and 68 Sundays. The terminals are continuously cleaned and any necessary maintenance done on the day shift. This all started in the 1700s, but the ferry service was provided by private individuals with two masted sailing vessels called per augers. By 1817, the cost had risen to 25 cents for adults and 12.5 cents for children, and the first ferry was called the Nautilus, which was a steam ferry captained by John De Forest. There were three ferries built for the harbor crossing, but were sent to the U. S. Navy during the Civil War; unfortunately they never returned; these were the Clifton I, Southfield and Westfield. By 1897, the fare was 5 cents and in 1972, it went up to 10 cents. In 1975, it went to a quarter again, and in 1990 to 50 cents. Then on July 4th, 1997, foot passengers would no longer pay any fare at all. The rich history of the ferry is extensive and very interesting, so when you go it would be worth your while to find out the entire story of this marvelous ferry.

  • New York's Greenwich Village
    How ironic that the place that helped this city grow into the media mecca it has become was due to many of the earlier residents that came to this lower Manhattan neighborhood to escape the culture locked neighborhoods of the rest of the city. Here is where the bohemian came to stay and live and work. The narrow tree lined streets kept traffic slower, the brick townhouses held the eccentric artist or loft of the actors, painters, sculptors, writers, musicians and bohemians that came to this city to start a career in show business or the arts. These early bohemians had rejected the mainstream life of the 1950s of an idyllic America and came here to write, sing, dance and act differently than the rest of the country. Experimenting with drugs and sexuality, searching the world for alternative religions, mostly from the far East; like the Beatles and their "trips" to Tibet and other Eastern meccas of philosophical opposites. Here Allen Ginsburg wrote Howl in 1956, Jack Kerouac's On the Road in 1957and William S. Burrough's Naked Lunch in 1959. This beat generation of the 50s lasted until it met with the counterculture people of the sixties and beatniks became hippies. Now the village is home to an upper middle class culture that distained everything that the beatniks and hippies sought and worked for. In the 19th century, it was known more as Washington Square, or the Empire Ward.

  • St. Patrick's CathedralSaint Patrick Cathedral New York City
    This magnificent cathedral is a decorated Neo-Gothic style Catholic cathedral church and the seat of the archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York; and also a parish church on Fifth Avenue facing the Rockefeller Center. The land it sits on was bought in 1810 for $11,000 and originally used for a Catholic school, which soon closed and the property sold to the diocese. The diocese gave the use of it to Trappists monks that opened an orphanage; but later abandoned it, and soon it was to become the sight of a cemetery. The orphanage continued to be taken care of by the diocese until the late 19th century. The diocese was started in 1808, and Pope Pius IX made it an archdiocese in 1850. In 1853, Archbishop John Joseph Hughes said that he wanted to build a new cathedral to replace the old one in downtown Manhattan. The new one was designed by James Renwick Jr in the Gothic Revival style and in 1858, the cornerstone was placed. The work was interrupted by the Civil War and then restarted in 1865, being completed in 1878 and dedicated on May 25, 1879; and the enormous size of it over shadowed the skyline of midtown during that period. The rectory and archbishop's house was built in 1882 to 1884 and a school next to them was built and opened in 1882. The towers were built in 1888, and more space was added in 1901, including a Lady chapel designed by Charles T. Mathews. The exquisite stained glass windows were created in Chipping Camden England by Paul Vincent Woodroffe during the period between 1927 and 1930, and the cathedral refurbished between 1927 and 1931, with the sanctuary made bigger and the organ installed. The entire complex was made a National Historic Landmark in 1976, and is a masterpiece of incredible architectural design and construction. It is constructed of white or really more tan marble that was quarried and brought from New York and Massachusetts; and will hold 2,200 people. The spires are 330 feet above the street and the windows were created by artisans in Birmingham, England, Boston, Massachusetts and Chartres, France. The beautiful rose window was created by Charles Connick; the St Louis and Micheal altars designed by Tiffany, and the St Elizabeth altar designed by Paolo Medici of Rome, Italy. One of the most moving sculptures in the cathedral is the "pieta" which is three times bigger than the one in Rome that was sculpted by Michelangelo; and this one was sculpted by Araldo Perugi, who came here from Carrara, Italy. This incredible sculpture depicts the Virgin Mary cradling the dead body of Jesus, and most of the pietas are done in sculptures. In Italian, pieta means pity. At the back of the cathedral, a bust of Pope John Paul II honors his visit here in 1979. Archbishop Francis Spellman, who later became a cardinal, had a large restoration done in the 1930s and 1940 to the main altar area, with the bronze baldachin in the sanctuary also done and the former high altar and reredos replaced. The original high altar is in the University Church at Fordham University in the Bronz, which was Spellman's alma mater. And the roof is covered by slate from Monson, Maine.

  • Grand Central Terminal
    The terminal sometimes called the Grand Central or Grand Central Station, is really a terminal station at 42nd and Park in midtown Manhattan, built by and for the New York Central Railroad; is the longest train station in the world with 44 platforms and 67 tracks that run along side them. With two below ground levels, 41 on the first and 26 on the second; the new Long Island Railroad's new station, which will be below these two, will offer travelers 48 platforms with 75 tracks and cover almost 50 acres. The terminal takes care of passengers traveling on the Metro-North to Westchester, Duchess and Putnam counties in the state of New York, and New Haven and Fairfield counties in the state of Connecticut. Beside the terminal, there are restaurants, the most famous is the Oyster Bar, bakeries, newsstands, fast food outlets, delis, gourmet and fresh food market, over 40 retail stores and an annex of the New York Transit Museum. The main hub or concourse is the very center of the terminal and is huge with crowds of people crawling all over. The four faced clock that sits on top of the information booth is the most recognizable icon in the station, and the faces are made from opal and estimated to worth between $10 and 20 million by Christie's and Sotheby's in London. On the exterior, the clock that hangs on the facade and faces 42nd Street is the biggest example of Tiffany glass in the world and is surrounded by sculptures from the John Donnelly Company; that depict Mercury, Hercules and Minerva. French sculptor Jules-Felix Coutan created the biggest sculptural group in the world at the time (1914) and it is 48 feet tall and the clock is 13 feet in circumference. In 1998, during a 12 year renovation of the terminal showed the original luster of the beautifully decorated astronomical ceiling, painted by French artist Paul Cesar Helleu in 1912; and was covered in the late 1930s because of falling plaster. The ceiling had been covered by a film of what people thought was coal and diesel smoke; but was actually nicotine and tar from tobacco smoke that had accumulated over the decades. There is one small patch, over the Michael Jordan's Steak House that was left that way to remind people of what covered the ceiling at another time.

  • Museum of Modern ArtMuseum of Modern Art New York City
    MoMA or the Museum of Modern Art in midtown Manhattan, New York City have been one of the pinnacle's of collecting and creating the world of modern art in the world; and is considered the most influential museums of modern art in the world. Its collection includes works of photography, prints, illustrated books, film, architecture and design, drawings, electronic media, sculpture and artist's books. The archives has over 300,000 books, periodicals and artist books with over 70,000 files on artists. Its archives hold the main source materials that are related to the history of contemporary and modern art. Inside, an award winning fine dining restaurant run by Chef Gabriel Kreuther. The idea for the museum was from Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, the wife of John D. Jr. and her friends Lillie P. Bliss and Mrs. Cornelius J. Sullivan in 1928. Soon they became known as the Ladies, the daring Ladies and the adamantine ladies and rented space for the newly founded museum, which opened to the public in 1929; actually 9 days after the terrible market crash on Wall Street. Mrs. Rockefeller asked A. Conger Goodyear to become president of the new museum, since he was the former president of the board of trustees at the Albright Art Gallery in Buffalo. She became the treasurer and it was the first museum devoted to modern art in America and the first one in Manhattan to exhibit European modern art. Goodyear got Paul J. Sachs and Frank Crowninshield to become founding trustees with him and Sachs suggested Alfred H. Barr Jr. to become the first director. Under his leadership, the museum quickly grew from its meager collection of 8 prints and 1 drawing. It has its first loan exhibition that month and showed paintings by Seurat, Van Gogh, Gaugin and Cezanne. As the collection moved from place to place, for lack of funds to procure its own building; since John D. was against modern art, his wife had to find funds elsewhere until he eventually changed his mind and donated land for its first real home and then other gifts over time; soon becoming one of its best benefactors. Some people think that the collection is one of the best in the West for modern masterpieces, it includes; over 150,000 pieces plus 22,000 films and 4 million still photos. It is home to the following works; Water Lillies triptych by Claude Monet, Love Song by Giorgio De Chirico, the Sleeping Gypsy by Henri Rousseau, Two Children Are Threatened by a Nightingale by Max Ernst, The City Rises by Umberto Boccioni, the Dance by Henri Matisse, the Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh, Painting (1946) by Francis Bacon, Les Demoiselles d'Avignon by Pablo Picasso, Self-portrait with Cropped Hair by Frida Kahlo, The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali, Christina's World by Andrew Wyeth, Broadway Boogie Woogie by Piet Mondrian, Number 31, 1950 by Jackson Pollack, Campbell's Soup Cans by Andy Warhol, the Bather by Paul Cezanne, and The Seed of the Areoi by Paul Gaugin.

  • Times Square
    Times Square is one of the main intersections of Manhattan, where Broadway and Seventh Avenue meet and goes from West 42nd Street to West 47th Street. It was originally called Longacre Square and renamed after the Times Building was erected in 1904. It is sometimes called the crossroads of the world, and is positively an icon of world renown; also a symbol of the city and is recognized by its plethora of spectators, digital advertisements and animation. At the southeast corner, where 42nd and Broadway intersect, the eastern terminus of Lincoln Highway sits; which was the very first road that went across the nation. Prior to and afterwards of the Revolution, the land was owned by John Morin Scott, who was a general of the New York militia under George Washington and his house was on what is now 43rd Street. The land around his home was farmland and horse breeding farms and then in the first half of the 1800s, it was owned by John Jacob Astor, who made his second fortune selling the lots to developers and hotels as the city began to grow. During the year of 1904, the New York Times publisher Adolph S. Ochs moved his paper to a new skyscraper on 42nd Street in Longacre Square and influenced Mayor George B. McClellan Jr. to build a subway station in the area and it was renamed to Times Square. The publisher McClellan was the son of the General McClellan of the Civil War fame. In 1913, the Times paper was moved to bigger offices across the street to Broadway and the old building was renamed the Allied Chemical Building; which eventually became known as 1 Times Square and is the building where the ball drops every year at New Year's Eve. As the city continued to grow, the square became the center of the city with music halls, upscale hotels and theaters. It quickly grew into an agora, a Greek word for an open place of assembly, and was where the people came to hear about wonderful news and the celebration afterwards; it could be presidential results, World Series news or the end of the wars.
