FROM THE STATUE OF LIBERTY TO MAMMA MIA!
A tour of New York that starts without a visit to the Statue of Liberty? Impossible. The ultra-famous Statue of Liberty, made by the French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, is on Liberty Island, a short distance from Manhattan. Lady Liberty is like the Eiffel Tower is to Paris: the perennial symbol of the city throughout the world. And at 93 meters she is certainly the tallest lady on the planet! If the Statue of Liberty satisfies the curiosity of grown-ups, to find a tourist attraction that also makes the youngsters happy you will have to go to the Bronx and immerse yourself in the wildlifeat the Bronx Zoo, which has put smiles on the faces of all the children who have visited since 1899. With more than 6,000 animals, the Bronx Zoo is one of the largest zoos in the USA. Then there are the attractions… from television series. One of the series most loved by female viewers has become a tour: Sex and The City offers its fans plenty of chances to follow in the footsteps of Carrie Bradshaw and her friends. It starts with the Staten Island Ferry, the charming and romantic free ferry from Staten Island to New York City. Other cult places from the TV series are the Plaza Hotel and the Paris Theatre, a stone's throw from Central Park. What is special about this cinema is that it has just one giant screen and shows one film a week. It opened in 1948 in Manhattan and in 2008 it celebrated its 60th anniversary. New York is all about entertainment, art and culture but also musicals. And the musical in New York has its own kingdom: Broadway. There are many shows and plays on offer for an evening of music and live performances: don't miss classics like Chicago, Mamma Mia! and Wicked.
FAST FOOD OR STEAK?
Those who say all-American cuisine is just fast food are greatly mistaken. The culinary tradition of the United States is full of lip-smacking typical dishes. And one of its most important characteristics is variety, reflecting the multiculturalism that is America. Steaks, mashed potato, Gumbo (a Louisiana soup with rice, okra and a choice of meat or sea food) and desserts including cheesecake, muffins and pumpkin pie. These are just a few of the delicacies that you can taste at table in the USA.
