Local Attractions

A short boat trip brings you from Manhattan to the Statue of Liberty, a gift from France for the centennial of America's Independence which now symbolizes the USA and New York in particular.

The Brooklyn Bridge, built between 1869 and 1883, connects Brooklyn with Manhattan. The bridge is one of the most magnificent landmarks in all of New York City.

Bryant Park is a small but pleasant park located next to the NY Public Library and surrounded by interesting architecture such as the historic Bryant Park Hotel and the modern Bank of America Building.

Central Park was the first large city park in the United States. The design by Olmsted and Vaux has been copied all over the world. Originally situated in a sparsely populated area, the park is now surrounded by highrises.

Coney Island is a seaside resort in Brooklyn famous for its historic Ferris Wheel and roller coaster, the Cyclone. Long past its heyday, it is still a popular tourist attraction.

Now home to the immigration museum, Ellis Island was the immigrant gateway to America. More than 12 million people arrived here on the way to their new life in a new country.

Not as famous as its Brooklyn namesake, this plaza sits at the edge of Central Park. The square features a large gilded statue of general William Sherman as well as the Pulitzer fountain.

Lincoln Center is a large complex devoted to music, dance, and theater. The most famous building at the center is the Metropolitan Opera House, designed by Wallace K. Harrison.

One of the world's most acclaimed libraries is housed in a beautiful Beaux-Arts building, designed by architects Carrère and Hastings. The building was completed in 1911 after 9 years of construction.

This posh, mostly residential street is lined with many historic buildings like the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, Lever House, Helmsley Building, Seagram Building and Ritz Tower.

Situated on the East River between Manhattan and Queens, Roosevelt Island is best known for its hospitals and asylums that have been here since the 1800s. The island can be reached by an aerial tram.

Completed in 1900, this neo-Gothic masterpiece is the country's largest roman catholic cathedral. It is located at Fifth Avenue near Rockefeller Center, now a posh area but at the time of construction well out of the city center.

Times Square, the most bustling square of New York is known for its many Broadway theatres, cinemas and electronic billboards. It is one of those places that make New York a city that never sleeps.
