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.

What to see in New York

What to see in New York
Central Park
In the middle of New York, a green heart is beating - the Central Park. It's as important to the New Yorkers as the green Prater is to the Viennese: a green oasis amidst the city, space for recreation and fun. Central Park stretches on 3,4 square kilometres from 59th to 110th street. The area comprises lakes, forests, hills, sculptures, sporting fields and playgrounds. And of course there are restaurants. One of them is the Loeb Boathouse at the lake. Since 1954 the guests rent rowboats and Venetian gondolas for a ride on the lake in order to watch birds on their way southwards or sit on the terrace and have a lobster roll and a jumbo crab cake. Visitors who'd consider a rowing trip too sedative can try out one of the intertwined running routes, baseball fields or attend one of the rock concerts. There are also sculptures of America's explorer Christopher Columbus, the Danish poet Hans Christian Andersen and buildings like the Belvedere Palace at the Vista Rock.

Harlow
Some of the most sough-after tables are to be found in New York. And since the beginning of 2013 the city got even hotter: Richie Notar and Jim Pallotta have opened the Harlow on East 56th Street. Richie - who was born in Queens - knows what the New Yorkers want. He began his career as a busboy in Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell's Studio 54 where he skinned potatoes and chopped onions on a daily basis. This changed when he became chef and from that point on worked in the city's top restaurants. At Nobu he was appointed General Manager. Eventually he became Managing Partner. In 2011 he founded his own gastro group and hired Meyer Davis Studio for his first own business, the restaurant/salon/café project named Harlow in Midtown Manhattan. His designers created an oyster-shaped marble bar and an ivy wall in the winter garden. In the reception area you'll spot an original Andy Warhol and the dining tables are lighted by chandeliers from the 30s. What a hot spot!

Hotel Rivington
Turning around your own axis - New York wherever you look. The hotel rooms on Rivington in the Lower East Side are furnished with ceiling-high glass windows and on the upper floors provide an almost continuous panorama view on the city. The Owners Suite of hotel owner Paul Stallings in the 17th floor is open to three sides. When the Stalling clan happens to be out of town, the suite is rented. Two-thirds of the rooms also have a balcony. When the hotel guests are tired of looking at the urban environment, they change their location and catch sight of celebrities like Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, Edwart Norton and Lucy DeVito - on the roof-top terrace or in the restaurant LevantEast. The soaring hotel on Rivington is 21-floors tall and in close vicinity to the Lower East Side Tenement Museum and Katz's delicatessen shop. The minimalistic interior was designed by India Mahdavi. Rooms starting from 225 dollars, breakfast for five dollars.

The Flea
More than 100 sellers offer antiquities, furniture, clothes, jewellery, art and kitsch at the Williamsburg Waterfront on Sundays in the summer between 10 am and 5 pm, with a view on New York's skyline for free. Surrounded by the smell of fresh tacos, pizzas and coffee, sometimes accompanied by a live band, now and then interrupted by a philosophical discussion or brave bargaining. When the city turns cold and grey - from November to March - the flea market moves from the Waterfront into the former Williamsburg Savings Bank, the second biggest building in Brooklyn, on the junction of Atlantic and Flatbush Avenue. The Flea's origin lies in Williamsburg's Brooklyn Flea, which has been meeting point for browsing people each Saturday from April to November since 2008. From the end of May 2011 onwards, Saturday will be an excursion day in Williamsburg as well: with Smorgasburg, the Flea-founders Jonathan Butler and Eric Demby, are launching a gourmet market with food and farmer stands as well as houseware.
