New York City - The Big Apple is Big Fun
by CL Hendricks

A visit to New York City will introduce you to many of the places that you have often seen on television or in movies. From the regal Statue of Liberty to the lush New York Botanical Garden you will take home memories of both natural and man-made wonders.

Statue of Liberty - Located on Liberty Island, Lady Liberty stands guard of the gateway to the land of freedom and democracy.

Ellis Island - Now managed by the same entity that watches over Liberty Island, Ellis Island was once the first bit of free ground that immigrants stepped on when they arrived in this country. Many visitors to the island are descendents of those early immigrants and come to the island to pay homage to the bravery of their ancestors.

Empire State Building - Every visitor to New York City should visit this towering example of amazing engineering; built in just 410 days. Visit one of the observation decks to view take in the entire expanse of the huge metropolis.

Madison Square Garden - The official home to four professional sports franchises, the Garden is also where may famous entertainers hold huge concerts on this New York City landmark.

Metropolitan Museum of Art - This museum houses the largest collection of art in the world, with works of such artists as Van Gogh, Monet and Renoir. Catch the newest on-the-go exhibition what you are in town.

Rockefeller Center - This is just another of the often seen New York City landmarks. Home of the famous Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center is also the place where, in the winter, the lights of the giant Christmas tree reflect in the eyes of the skaters as they glide around the ice.

Ground Zero - September 11, 2001 created another landmark in New York City. Where the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center once stood a Memorial is being built to pay tribute to the almost 3000 victims who died on this terrible attack on America.
