1) The 5 boroughs of NYC – As many tourists only stay in the center of New York, these 5 boroughs are worth paying a visit. The 5 boroughs are: Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island and Bronx. Once you have visited one of these boroughs you will see the true side of New York.

3) Ground Zero – The world trade center was a big attraction for many tourists before the tragic incident of 11 September but has been a more important visiting location for many tourists. Ground Zero is located in the lower part of Manhattan and is very difficult to be reached with the car because of all the constructions. The best way to go is with public transportation. If you want any guidance a tour is a good option. You will get to know about more things than you would have expected.

 

4) Wall street – Everyone must have heard about this one street in New York that got so much attention. This street is the financial street of whole America and is of importance to any American citizen. This was back in the 19th and 20th centuries the place to be for many investors. There are many buildings on the Wall Street that has been a creation of investors. The most important one is the headquarter that have been built by J.P Morgan. Another important symbol is the charging bull statue. The bull represents a bull market, a rising market. This was placed after a financial crisis by a sculptor that got removed after by the government. After a public outcry it got replaced again but to another place next to Wall Street.

They just decided that these neighborhoods are theirs. The Chinese and Italian are the founders of the two neighborhoods. For a delicious meal is Chinatown the place to be, you just ask the locals for where the best place is to have a meal. Little Italy is known by the numerous Italians that are living there. Nowadays the number of Italians decreased to a small group. Little Italy has also got very good food, but also the architecture is quiet something you must have to see.

  1. My suggestion #6 would be City Maps. It is a tremendous resource for a tourist and resident alike. It's a new interactive, virtual map of the city, there is nothing else even close to it out there. Great resource.
