New York is the most densely populated city in the US, with a population of more than 8.55 million, and is the cultural capital of the country. Popular attractions include:
Statue of Liberty
Gifted from the people of France to the people of the US in the late 1800s in celebration of America’s new-found democracy and the abolition of slavery, the Statue of Liberty is New York City’s most iconic monument.
Empire State Building
America’s most famous piece of architecture and standing at 1,454ft tall, the Empire State held the title of the “world’s tallest building” for nearly 40 years and is the fifth-tallest skyscraper in the US.
Originally the “Museum of Non-Objective Painting”, The Guggenheim features special exhibitions throughout the year and is the permanent home of an increasingly impressive collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, early modern and contemporary art.
