    Empire State Building

    It is no longer the tallest but it remains one of the most famous and dare we say most loved buildings in New York.

  • Statue of Liberty

    Statue of Liberty

    The Statue of Liberty is one of the must see attractions in New York. Located on Ellis Island in New York Harbor the Statue of Liberty is as welcoming as it has always been. Also contained on the Island are the records of 25 million immigrants, passengers, and crew members who entered the U.S. from 1892 to 1924. Who knows, maybe you have a distant relative living close by.
    The Statue’s full name is ‘Liberty Enlightening the World’. She was originally planning on a trip to the Suez Canal in Egypt but fell in love with New York. Shortly after, the city fell in love with her.


    Unfortunately we can't guarantee the content. Some of the links may let us down and it will probably rain from to time to. We will do what we can but if you could help out by making the sun come out we would be eternally grateful. :)
