Hotels in New York City
This is one of the common problems that travelers encounter when
setting foot on foreign land - trying to find a right hotel. In New York City, however, you need not worry
that you won’t be provided with the kind of services you expect to receive. If you’re the artsy type fond of
bohemian living then you’ll probably love to stay in New York City’s Greenwich Village or downtown Soho. If you’re
a yuppy and you’re attached to your PDA learning about the stock market, then you’ll feel right at home in New York
City’s famous Wall Street. If posh places however are what takes your fancy then take a ride to downtown Manhattan
and see for yourself what the Hilton or the Four Seasons Hotel has to offer.

Popular New York City Tourist Spots

City wouldn’t be complete without touring the following sites:
Building: Need it be explained?
The Statue of
Liberty: take a ferry ride to this gigantic statue, a gift
to the United States from the French government some centuries ago.
Madam Tussaud’s Wax
Museum: now, now, now, don’t you start believing that what you
saw in Paris Hilton’s House of Wax is based on a true story. This particular site was even featured in Ripley’s
because of the uncanny resemblance of its…err…inhabitants.
World Trade Center: Now, I know that technically speaking, this isn’t a happy place but it would do all of us good
to pay our respects to the victims of the September 11 bombing. This tragedy has at least proved that the people of
New York City wouldn’t let any terrorist attack faze them into cowering in terror. Hail, hail New York
