About New York

From legendary Times Square to Wall Street, from the United Nations to Soho to South St. Seaport and the World Trade Center, you can experience the world of excitement that personifies New York.

New York boasts a panorama of treasures with over 123 museums housing world-famous artistic and historic exhibits from antiquity to modern times, from the classical to the abstract.

In the field of the performing arts, New York stands among the best in the world. The Lincoln Center complex, with the Metropolitan Opera, Avery Fisher Hall, The New York State Theater and Alice Tully Hall where the New York Philharmonic, the nation's oldest symphonic ensemble performs, is second to none. Add to this, Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall stage shows, these are all places one should see and attend.

And on or off-Broadway, one can choose from a myriad of plays and musicals, i.e., Beauty and the Beast, Show Boat, Sunset Boulevard, etc.

You can also enjoy dining at any of the cosmopolitan and ethnic gourmet restaurants around town. And, of course, another "must" are the extensive collections in art galleries and antique shows. Certainly, one definitely cannot resist New York's shopping paradise where a treasure chest of fashions awaits the adventurous sleuth...you!!
