NYC is one of the most visited cities in the United States of America, frequently attracting tourists due to its fame and amazing city skylines. It is one of the largest economic hubs in the world, powered by the world-famous Wall Street. It is surprisingly racially and culturally diverse, and can be a cornucopia of experiences for even the most seasoned traveller or tourist. The city does not seem to run out of sightseeing sights; from the Statue of Liberty to Times Square to the Empire State Building, the city has numerous icons that are known to almost any tourist in the world. The city also serves as a good base for visiting nearby destinations such as Toronto, Philadelphia or Connecticut. Driving can be a nightmare in the city so taking public transport is advisable. The buses and subway trains require you to use a "MetroCard", which you can purchase at subway stations or even online. The subway is perhaps the quickest way to get around the city as it is well connected and will most definitely bring you to all sightseeing destinations. With flights to New York at a low rate, there is no reason not to visit. The city is iconic and the people are wildly diverse. You will experience nothing but wonder as you walk the streets of the Big Apple and marvel at how far the most famous city on Earth has come. With its upbeat life and constant vibe, this city is like no other. Visit today.


Sights

Sights in New York
Brooklyn Bridge
Since 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge has been connecting the two districts of Brooklyn and Manhattan. The construction of steel ropes and gothic archways designed by German-American engineer John August Roebling stretches for almost 1.3 miles across the East River. On its completion date it was the longest chain bridge in the world. Today it is a showplace for athletes and strollers, cinema movies (catch-word: The Fifth Element), supermodels like Agyness Deyn and even for long traffic jams. Under the wooden covered floor for pedestrians, there is a six-lane highway.   After arriving in Brooklyn, the road directly leads into the River Café, the Michelin-starred restaurant by the river with a view on the city which fills every New Yorker with pride. The River Café is the birth place of many chefs such as Larry Forgione or David Burke and - especially at mild summer evenings with saxophone sounds on the terrace - it is an extremely popular setting for whispering sweet nothings.

Hôtel Americano
Perfectly designed and stylish - that's how the Mexican hotel chain Grupo Habita present their houses in Latin America. With their first hotel in the USA - the Hôtel Americano - they stick to their design concept. Designed by Mexican architect Enrique Norten in a minimalist style, the ten-storey building with glass-steel-facade houses 56 rooms and studios, a rooftop terrace with bar and pool that can be reached via an external elevator, a restaurant and two subterranean bars. The interior comes from Arnaud Montigny. His sources of inspiration were Japan (when choosing the beds) and of course Latin America. The latter becomes visible through the bedspreads in the rooms made of alpaca or the Mexcian Mezcal at the bar.   The soft opening is scheduled for July 2011. In September the hotel starts its business in full swing. Rooms starting from 325 dollars.

Shopping

Shopping in New York
Abc Carpet & Home
In the six-storied furniture store on Broadway 888 the carpets pile up on the wooden floor, the glasses are densely packed in metal racks - everything in high rooms and under large chandeliers. In between: couples strolling around with their personal shopper searching for the perfect mirror for the loft or the organic bed linen for the bedroom. Yuppies on the hunt for a new couch or moneyed grey-haired ladies on a stroll through the tableware-department.   In the branch on the opposite side of the street on Broadway 881: carpets of every kind and size on three floors. Old or new, design or antique. The deeper the buyer probes into the store, the more favourable the carpet gets. In the basement there's a constant clearance sale.   Abc Carpet & Home has devoted itself with its products to sustainability. Special icons make the buyer aware of the source of the material and the way of manufacturing. Not to be neglected: the Abc Kitchen, Jean-Georges Vongerichten's new restaurant in the mega furniture store.

Eataly
A steaming pizza lies on the TV host's plate. A housewife puts a bottle of red wine into her shopping basket and a construction worker bites into his fresh Focaccia. This is everyday life in Eataly. The slow food supermarket with restaurants and cafes on 5th Avenue opposite of the Flatiron building has been the pilgrimage site for Italophile gourmets for almost a year now. Some eat on the spot (there are 5 restaurants at choice), others take a piece of Italy home or to work. Or you learn how to transform the fine Italian ingredients into pasta at home with Eataly's cook Lidia Bastianich. The Eataly concept in New York comes from the caterers Mario Batali, Joe and Lidia Bastianich and Eataly-founder Oscar Farinetti, who also represents Eataly in Italy and Japan. From this summer onwards, Eataly guests will probably also have a few beers while looking at the wonderful skyline - La Birreria on the roof of the building is Eataly's newest addition. It follows the beer garden trend which is currently undertaking New York. Cheers! The supermarket is open daily. The restaurants as well. Opening hours vary.
