New York City is bigger than life itself. When I think of Manhattan, I envision constant movement, not one of confusion (though it may seem that way at first) but one of dogged and deliberate certainty. New Yorkers are a focused lot; each stride has a sense of purpose, of self-assuredness. Its people are what make this city come alive.
As a tourist, you can feel the excitement through every pore; the anticipation that something special is going to happen to you in this city….and you won’t be disappointed. One of the most exciting things that have happened in the city in the past year is that Broadway on Times Square is permanently closed to traffic. It is now a haven for pedestrians who generally like to bring their folding chairs, sit and take in the view.
The cosmopolitan menu that is offered by the numerous street vendors is a foodie’s definition of nirvana. There’s Broadway and Off-Broadway if you are so inclined to take in its famous cultural offerings. The best view of the city is from the top floor of 30 Rockefeller Center and you’ll get your best photo of Lady Liberty from the deck of a tour boat on the Hudson River.
