New York is mainly the city of theatres, but one can also find here monuments and other points of interest. Thus the must-see for all visitors map should be the Great White Way
, as the Seventh Avenue and several neighbouring blocks including Broadway
are called. Although tickets for shows are expensive, and many times one has to stand in a long line to get them, but with a bit of luck, one may join the audience. If not, the entire Manhattan is full of smaller theatres, the so-called Off-Broadway
with cheaper and more available tickets. It is a place that offers the greatest opportunity to see something avant-garde or experimental.
The visitors' map of New York should also include the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the art museum in Manhattan showing such contemporary art forms as painting, drawing, graphics, sculpture, photography, film, video, installations, or new media. In New York, there is also the oldest and largest museum in the USA, the Metropolitan Museum of Art. One can find there unique collections of painting, sculpture, works of decorative and applied art, of all eras from around the world.
New York is also associated with the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island at the mouth of the Hudson River, considered the symbol of free America. The Brooklyn Bridge, one of the oldest hanging bridges in the US, connecting Manhattan with Brooklyn, is also worth seeing.
An important place in New York, and also its lungs, is the Central Park – a popular leisure and entertainment place and the largest city park. Other important places include the Fifth Avenue – the most snobbish and the richest street in New York, Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum, the Times Square – the square at the intersection of two streets – Broadway and the Seventh Avenue – world’s centre of the trade and fashion, one of the New York icons, SoHo – the most fashionable and expensive district in New York, the Mecca of artists, intellectuals and celebrities, full of expensive boutiques and pubs.
