New York. Those who have never set foot on it already know it, through cinema, television series, music, literature. Diverse, frenetic, electric, magnetic, magical, vertiginous, inventive, intensive, adjectives jostle to describe it. It is the city of extremes and superlatives.
New York is the most visited megapole in the United States. The “Big Apple”, as it is often called, is the largest city in the United States, with more than 7 million inhabitants. It is filled with a diverse mix of people, including immigrants from many countries. Some of its neighborhoods, such as Chinatown, Little Italy and Spanish Harlem, reflect the rich cultural heritage of the native lands of its residents.
New York is a captivating and engaging city. It discovers herself in a thousand ways, according to the taste and expectations of each. Nevertheless, there are passages and activities impossible to circumvent.
The first place you can visit after your Odesa to New York flight is Central Park. It’s a big park in the heart of Manhattan. It stretches from 59th to 110th Street. Although it has been laid out, you can always find nature corners. Central Park is carved into several sites and you will definitely not have time to visit everything in one day. We advise you, for your first visit, to visit:
Strawberry Fields: a monument to John Lennon.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir: renamed in honor of Jacky Kennedy.
