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.

Andaz 5th Avenue
Checking in at the reception - that is so yesterday! Checking in via handheld pc in the living room next to the baking oven or while you`re already on the way into your room - that`s today! The place of action: the Andaz 5th Avenue located at the biggest shopping street of the city. The hotel with 184 rooms - situated in one of New York`s largest department stores in history and former headquarters of Tommy Hilfiger on 41st street - is part of the Hyatt family. In co-operation with Tony Chi it shows what creative, generous living means. Here, liberty can be found everywhere: no matter if it`s in the open restaurant and its entrance that leads through the kitchen which only uses products by New Yorker farmers. Or in the 30-square-metre large rooms with 3,65-metre high ceilings and freestanding bathtubs. Or the art works by Nick Hornby & Co that adorn the living rooms. The whole hotel inspires you to give free rein to your own individuality. It works.

Century 21
Versace, Jil Sanders, Giorgio Armani - the fashion stars of the world are peacefully united at one place: at Century 21, the mega outlet at the Ground Zero which sells clothing, shoes, bags, accessories, lingerie, sun glasses and fragrances by international designers at discount prices for almost 50 years. In the five storeys of the outlet you have to be ruthless sometimes in a rummage table manner, which stands in contrast to the serious business conduct of the Financial District people in front of the shop's doors. But the scuffles for the pullover or the bag - which the housewife, baseball star and model in the same engaging way participate in - are not surprising as the pieces are cheaper between 40 and 65 per cent. It's cosier in the morning hours or in the Century 21 subsidiary in Brooklyn. The outlet in Manhattan opens its doors to shopaholics and bargain hunters at 7.45, on weekends at 10 o'clock or 11 o'clock, respectively. The store in Brooklyn opens at 10 on weekdays.

The Russian entrepreneur Andrey Dellos and his restaurant Pushkin on 57th West Street in New York only made a short appearance. The brasserie close to Central Park served blinis and other specialities for less than a year. Now the wind of change is blowing - with Bryce Shuman and Eamon Rockey, formerly under the aegis of Daniel Humm at Eleven Madison Park Restaurant, taking the reins. Their restaurant is meant to be open to everyone. And it should be fun. Not every local restaurant critic might be convinced by their philosophy. But regardless of the criticism, Shuman and Rockey bet on excellent drinks (for example Pisco Sour by Macchu Pisco and alternating beer brands from local breweries) and American cuisine, presented in modern ways: among Bryce's favourites you'll find chicken liver mousse on green apple, celery and caraway. And while Pushkin only lived for roughly a year, it seems that the Betony will have a bright and long future.

9/11 Memorial
On 11 September 2011 it was exactly ten years after the attack on the once striking landmark of Manhattan, the towers of the World Trade Center. With the 9/11 Memorial, designed by Michael Arad, the city commemorates the victims of the attack as well as those who lost their lives at the bombing raid on the WTC on 23 February 1993. The two waterfalls and Reflecting Pools, each one around one acre (4840 square yards), are placed on the same spot where once the two towers stood. Surrounded by around 400 trees - this is how it is going to look like. The names of 2,982 men, women and children who died at the attacks are engraved on the pool parapet. Visitors of the 9/11 Memorial have to book a pass for the desired visit-date and time in advance on and show a printed form of it at the entrance. The entrance to the Memorial is free of charge. The 9/11 Memorial Museum opened its doors in September 2012. It documents the events of 1993 and 2001 as well as the building`s history.
