About New York, NY

New York, New York, so nice they named it twice. While pleasant, these familiar lines don't seem to do justice to a living, breathing metropolis like New York City -- a place that, every day, seems to lend itself to bolder and bolder superlatives. The Big Apple certainly lives up to the fanfare it receives as the largest US city, and it promises a never ending assortment of first class entertainment, dining, shopping and cultural opportunities. On any given week -- and really, there is no bad time to visit -- thousands of visitors flock to see NYC's iconic attractions: the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building and Times Square, stroll through Central Park or shop along Fifth Avenue. And still, those preferring quieter pursuits find a plethora choices: a seat on the Staten Island Ferry, the rooftop sculpture garden at the Metropolitan Museum or the anticipatory hush before the conductor raises his baton at the symphony. So, whether you are seeking a sample of some sublime fusion of foie gras and panna cotta or to tune your ears to the latest neo-psychedelic orchestral rap, one thing is for sure: you'll to find it here, even at 4am, in New York City.
New York, NY Factoid
Welcome to Grand Central Terminal, the world's largest railway station and the United States' busiest. The station sprawls over 76 acres and accommodates 500,000 commuters and subway riders daily. Be sure to explore the wonder of the main concourse of the station. Roughly 12 stories high, a celestial map glows with fiber optic lighting that brings the major stars to life.
