New York Links Directory and Travel Resources

(New York, NY, USA)

One of the world's most famous and most visited cities, New York really does seem to have it all when it comes to culture, excitement and tourism. Sights like the Empire State Building have become iconic landmarks, while Central Park provides an unusual and rather unexpected vast green expanse, amidst the city's towering hotels and skyscrapers.

Sightseers in New York will find themselves drawn to the bright neon lights and illuminated billboards of Times Square, as well as the theaters of Broadway. Others will want to visit the poignant National September 11 Memorial and Museum at One Liberty Plaza, which remembers the terrorism attacks on the World Trade Center and honours those who tragically lost their lives. To learn more about the city's fascinating immigration past, a visit to Ellis Island is in order, being connected by the regular Statue of Liberty ferries.
