New York! New York! You can’t have enough of it! The view of the Statue of Liberty
from the Staten Island Ferry, the crown of the Empire State Building, the Central
Park as seen from the top of Rockefeller Center, the yellow cabs which are a symbol
of the city - these are visuals which linger forever. Tour Chinatown on Doyers
Street and Little Italy on Mulberry Street, to meet the immigrant communities
settled here. Visit the Museum of Modern Art to view the works of Braque and Van
Gogh. While in New York, do not forget to sample the famous New York Cheesecake and
halal food from street-vendors. The city is a foodie’s paradise and there is
something here for everyone.
Head out to the Greenwich Village to spot the Hess Triangle. This small, mosaic
triangle set in the sidewalk, was installed by one Mr. David Hess, whose house got
demolished when subways lines were extended in New York, in the 1910s. He refused to
donate this remaining piece of tiny, triangular surface area to the city, to mark
his protest against the high-handedness of the City Municipality!
