New York – The bustling city at night

in Travel

If visitors have an opportunity to see the U.S, one of the most attracting destinations they cannot ignore is New York City – the city that never sleeps.

New York is the most populous city in the United States and the center of the New York metropolitan area. It also exerts a powerful influence over global commerce, finance, media, culture, art, fashion, research, education, and entertainment. In addition, New York becomes an important center for international affairs when hosting the United Nations Headquarters.

New York attracts millions of visitors every year with major exciting destinations like Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Broadway theater productions, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Central Park, Washington Square Park, Rockefeller Center or Times Square. However, its nickname “the city that never sleeps” originated from New York’s life at night.

    Funny thing - the statue of liberty shown on this page is not in New York but in Tokyo Japan. There are other statues of liberty around the world (smaller duplicates). One of them is in Japan. You can tell it is japan because the Rainbow bridge is in the background.
