“We lived in New York City for 6 years. The density of cultures, ideas and history make this place so special. It is a restless city that savors its history yet is fearless in its ability to re-invent itself. Though the mean streets are long gone from most of NYC, there is still camaraderie amongst those who survive the hardships and challenges of living with so many different perspectives and goals.

There are thousands of events happening every night of the week. Poetry readings all over the city, trendy nightclubs in the Meatpacking district, East Village and downtown - even the most specialized of tastes can find multiple choices to capture his/ her fancy. Mercury Lounge, Galapagos, Bowery Ballroom, free Summer Concerts on Pier...

Some alternatives to the usual entertainment options: Cloisters, Neue Gallerie, PS1, Noguchi Museum, Roosevelt Tram, a free ride on the Staten Island Ferry, ethnic neighborhoods such as the real Little Italy on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, Greek areas of Astoria, Indian communities in Jackson Heights, and the emerging Little Tokyo along St. Marks Place. Take a walk through Central Park and visit the restored highlights including the Bethesda Fountain and Minton Tiles in the Bethesda Terrace Arcade, then go fly a kite or join in a game of hacky sack on the Great Lawn. Museum Row on the Upper East Side offers some of the greatest pieces of art of human history while Chelsea can offer a taste of newest, cutting-edge artists. Herald Square and Rockefeller Center are the places for shopping.

New Yorkers aren't like anyone anywhere else in America. New York is a city of the world and nowhere is it more evident than in the diversity of its population. From the top of the socio-economic class to the bottom and from the West coast of America to the Far East, every culture has found a home in New York and contributes to the ongoing dialogue of what it is to be an American.

Don’t forget to bring a map, but know that in Central Park you can't get lost if you can find a street lamp: look for the number on the side of the lamp and you’ll know how far North/South you are. For example the number ‘6202’ means you are between 62nd and 63rd Street.”
