Times Square

Visiting USA is an all-time dream for many travelers, USA is a never sleeping country, where fun feels at home, freedom is an everywhere concept. International flights to USA are possible now, at very affordable rates. Book a cheap flight and go to United States for an unforgettable trip! New York is absolutely amazing at night, when flashes, lights and neon glow in all possible colours, entertaining all viewers. Times Square is not only an open space, situated at the intersection of Broadway, Seventh Avenue and 43rd Street, but also a cultural center, where you can see a theatre play or watch a cinema movie. Don’t forget your camera, as a tip, try taking photos of Times Square area half an hour before getting dark because by that time, the contrast between the colourful lights and the sky is the most powerful.

Before the departure, book your hotel room and plan your trip because New York City is very complex, popular and entertaining. It’s better to see Times Square together with a friend, because the experience has to be shared. If you like going shopping, then Times Square is the perfect gateaway because the famous H&M chain, M&M Store or MTV Gift shop are here.

Imagine how Times Square looks like on New Year’s Eve! Very many people enjoying more and more the moments of celebration. If you want to avoid the hectic trafiic and crowded streets of Times Square, then go there at the early hours of morning, because it is only then when you see fewer people. During day, Times Square is crowded with people going shopping and in the evening, very many other people are in search of a show or restaurant.

A Long Weekend in New York

Post written by Kate Robinson.
How things have changed since the turn of the century……. Before, no one would even have thought of going to New York for the weekend. However, the rise in competition between airline companies and the subsequent fall in the price of flights means that you can travel from destinations all over Europe to New York for the weekend. But the question is….can you fit the Big Apple into one weekend? Yes you can…so here is my guide to a weekend in New York.
The key to enjoying a weekend in New York is to make sure you arrive late Thursday afternoon or evening so that you get a good nights sleep and wake up fresh on Friday morning ready to explore.
Start Friday off by going for a walk in Central Park before heading further into the urban jungle to discover some of the tourist attractions that New York is so renowned for. If I could recommend just one I would say the Statue of Liberty because that is the first thing that always comes to my mind and makes me think of the city.
After visiting this iconic statue you should head to Broadway and try and get tickets for a show. Once you have your tickets, go for something to eat before it starts.
Start Saturday off by having a good breakfast at one of my favourite places, The Standard Grill at 848 Washington Street at West 13th Street. Here you can sample all sorts of tasty treats.
You cannot go to New York without shopping (especially if you are female). That is why you have to take a trip to Fifth Avenue in Manhattan or go to Brooklyn which is otherwise known as the borough of boutiques.
When the sun goes down New York comes alive…it is the city that never sleeps after all. So make sure you get ready to party. Enjoy a nice meal and then cocktails or drinks. If you want to party in style you should eye out a VIP club.
Even though you are tired after your night out on the town….try to get up early and make the most of your last day in New York. I would recommend a good breakfast to give you the energy you need to get through the day.
Sunday is the perfect day for visiting museums. I would recommend one of the top NY museums – the New Museum of Contemporary Art – this is a must-see.
Enjoy a good lunch before getting ready to head to the airport for your flight home. You see…New York can be fitted into one weekend. The recipe is enthusiasm, energy, determination and adventure.

Empire State Building New York – 80th Birthday in 2011

Empire State Building, the top attraction in New York gathers many tourists and local visitors on May, 1st, because of the 80th birthday. This time, but 80 years ago, that is in 1931, President Herbert Hoover turned on the lights on Empire State Building, the top attraction in New York. The idea for the Empire State Building is said to have been born of a competition between Walter Chrysler of the Chrysler Corporation and John Jakob Raskob of General Motors, to see who could erect the taller building. The incredible skyscraper is now 102 stories high (1,454 feet to the top of the lightning rod). The Depression-era construction employed as many as 3,400 workers on any single day, most of whom received an excellent pay rate, especially given the economic conditions of the time. In the period when it was erected, Empire State Building was considered the 8th Wonder of the World. Now, this top attraction in New York has 73 elevators, and it was constructed in only 1 year and 45 days. At the top of Empire State Building, a huge spire can be noticed. Because of the Great Depression, companies left this office building, making it famous under the name of “Empty State Building”.
