Love

The pop art steel statue by Robert Indiana is located in the heart of Manhattan in New York. It was created as a Christmas card design for the Museum of Modern Art (in 1965), then it was turned into a popular stamp (in 1973) and later on, a sculpture - that became an icon - was made. The very first LOVE Sculpture was installed in Indianapolis (in 1970). Ever since, more and more LOVE Sculptures were appearing all over the US and consequently all over the world. Among many US cities that also have their LOVE Sculpture, apart from New York, are e.g. Scottsdale, New Orleans or Philadelphia. Some of the sculptures are even “translated” (e.g. the AMOR Sculpture in Milan or the Hebrew LOVE Sculpture in Israel Museum). The New York LOVE Sculpture is a very popular place for taking pictures.

Broadway

Most theaters in the area are located in the Theater District around Broadway. To date, The Lion King is the most successful musical that can be played on Broadway.

It mainly comes into focus during New Year's Eve celebrations, traditionally held in Times Square (the tradition goes back to 1903) and is covered by Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin 'Eve ABC program. The highlight of the evening is the famous ball throw, in which the giant ball descends about half a meter. The tradition of counting down the last few seconds of the year while watching the giant ball go down, dates back to 1907. The moment it falls completely, the new year begins. Times Square is also known for its neon signs. The NASDAQ sign in Times Square is the world's largest LED sign. There are also many brand shops, cafes and restaurants. The square also appeared in many films. Some of the best known are Vanilla Sky, Enchanted, Spider-Man 3 or New Year's Eve. Times Square is usually full of tourists. Note that the place is smoke free since 2011.

Empire State Building

350 5th Avenue, 10018, New York City
An iconic Art Deco skyscraper and one of New York's most recognizable buildings. It gets its name from the city's nickname the "Empire State". It was for years the tallest building in the world (from 1931 to 1970) and is still one of the tallest buildings in the US and the world. The upper floors of the Empire State Building offer a spectacular view of the city (especially during the sunrise and sunset). From there you can see all the important New York icons (eg Central Park, Chrysler Building or Hudson River). However, be aware of the weather before you go there, as this could severely affect your visit. The building appears in the King Kong movie in its most iconic scene, where the giant monkey ascends to escape its pursuers. Other well-known films showing the Empire State Building include Sleepless in Seattle, Harry Met Sally and Independence Day. If you want to avoid long queues, you can buy your tickets online. If you want to get to the Empire State Building by public transport, you can get there by the subway (lines B, D, F, V, N, Q, R, W, 6) or by the PATH (train system).

Brooklyn Bridge

This bridge, connecting Manhattan and Brooklyn, is definitely one of New York's most famous attractions. It is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the US and it was the longest bridge in the world for 20 years. When it was finished (1883), it actually connected two separate cities, because Brooklyn was not part of New York City at the time. During its construction, up to thirty people were killed (the exact number is unknown), including its designer John A. Roebling. The bridge appears in many films, one of the best known being e.g. Godzilla or Spider-Man. If you decide to cross the bridge, you will enjoy a spectacular view over the city.

Flatiron Building

175 5th Avenue, 10010, New York
The icon of New York (and one of its most frequently photographed skyscrapers) was not always known as the Flatiron Building. In 1902, when it was built for the Fuller Company, it was called the Fuller Building. The company had only their headquarters there until 1910, so the name changed. The area where the building is located (between the 22nd and 23rd streets) was already known as "flat iron" and so the building got its name after the place and not its shape. Nowadays the whole area is called Flatiron District (after the building). Unfortunately, it is not open to the public and there are no organized tours - the building is full of offices. Many publishers are based here (eg MacMillan Publishing). Still, it's definitely worth the trip as the Renaissance Revival building looks stunning even from the outside.

Little Italy

This part of New York got its name from its immigrant population, which consisted mainly of Italian Americans. Today, however, the population of Italian descent is not significantly higher than in the rest of New York. The place is still worth a visit, because the Italian atmosphere is still very present and alive. During your visit you can taste the Italian cuisine in one of the ubiquitous Italian restaurants or cafés. There are also many wine events (eg wine tasting) organized. If you want to know more about the history of the Italian community in the US, you should visit the Italian American Museum, which offers interesting information on this subject. If you visit the place in the second half of September, you can visit the festival of San Gennaro, which takes place in Little Italy and celebrates the Italian community and its culture.

Wall Street

Wall Street is now synonymous with American financial markets. It is best known for the New York Stock Exchange building that is located here. Its name was derived from its function - during the 17th century the road marked the northern boundary of the New Amsterdam settlement. There was an actual wall protecting the inhabitants of New Amsterdam. Later, a buttonhole tree grew on Wall Street, and under that tree the Buttonwood contract was signed - the contract that established today's New York Stock Exchange. If you're on Wall Street, check out the New York Stock Exchange Building - a wonderful piece of architecture. Unfortunately you can not go in, but the exterior is definitely worth seeing.
