Zuccotti Park occupies a special place in New York's history. The epicenter of the Occupy Wall Street movement that swept political discourse in 2011, this humble square has been cleared of the protest signs and tents, once more becoming a sleepy little location at the tip of Manhattan. Two sculptures add a little color to the mostly gray park, Mark di Suvero's Joie de Vivre contributing a splash of orange across from a bronze businessman statue which reclines on a bench. A tiny square dense with history, Zuccotti Park has become one of New York's most recent landmarks.
Located in Lower Manhattan and bounded by Broadway, Canal, West and Chambers Streets, Tribeca is one of the swankiest places to call home in the city. The area was put on the map in the 1960's when many budding artists began renovating abandoned industrial buildings and warehouses for more spacious art studios and living quarters. Some attribute this time to the birth of industrial chic design and loft-dwelling which has become a hip architectural style, but back then it was completely revolutionary. The area still maintains much of its architectural history with famous art-deco and neo-Renaissance influences in buildings such as the 32 Avenue of Americas building, The Textile Building, The Powell Building and The American Thread Building.
Este porto remonta à 1600. Foi renovado cerca de 30 anos atrás para tornar-se um marco histórico assim como um centro comercial.

Um centro de actividades, eventos, um museu marítimo, refeições e compras, esta é uma importante experiência na cidade!

The heart of this well-known Italian neighborhood is Mulberry Street. Years ago, the vast majority of people who lived here were Italian, but expansion of Chinatown and Italian migration to the suburbs has changed the make-up of the neighborhood. Still, cafes, restaurants and bakeries line the street. Take a walk and smell the fresh baked bread, garlic and sauces. Stop for a glass of wine or tiramisu at a sidewalk cafe, or gorge on the salamis hanging from store windows.

As one of the oldest neighborhoods in New York City, the Lower East Side has seen many changes in regards to ethnic diversity and business. Once a working-class neighborhood mostly occupied by immigrants (Jewish, German, Puerto Rican and Dominican), the area has undergone rapid gentrification and is now associated with a trendy and "hipster" scene due to the many contemporary art galleries, trendy boutiques and nightlife spots along Clinton and Orchard streets. The Lower East Side is a great area to go shopping if you are looking for the hottest trends or a perfect place to catch up with friends and have a cocktail.
Take a pleasant trip to admire this awesome sight. Tagged by many citizens as one of the best views of the city, the promenade in Brooklyn Heights is known for exactly this reason. A stroll in the early morning or late evening can end up being very romantic. Go ahead and have a look at one of the best spots in Brooklyn.
As ruas sinuosas e as encantadoras casas do Greenwich Village têm uma atmosfera muito mais definida do que a maioria dos bairros ao redor da cidade. O centro da comunidade de gays e estudantes de Nova Iorque fica aqui, com uma variedade de compras modernas e vida nocturna, incluindo jazz, rock e clubes para dançar, restaurantes, bares e cafés. Até o início dos anos 1900, a Vila tinha estabelecido-se como o centro do pensamento radical nos Estados Unidos. Famosos reformistas, artistas e intelectuais reuniam-se aqui, e ainda vir para cá. Não perca uma visita ao Washington Square Park, que vai tirar seu folêgo!
This cozy Greenwich Village park is always filled with students, residents and tourists alike. It is one of the few green spots in the area and has undergone many incarnations since it was the site of Minetta Creek in the 1600's. In that century it was farmland, then a burial ground in the next one, thereafter the city acquired the land and created the park in 1826. At the northern end stands the famous arch, built in 1889 to commemorate the centennial of Washington's inauguration when New York was the nation's first capital under the constitution. The arch was designed by the iconic Stanford White and throughout the park you can find many interesting historical features and facets, some are hidden and others are in plain sight. The area was also the neighborhood for many famous artists and writers, including Henry James, Edith Wharton and Edward Hopper; many lived in the Greek Revival style row houses at the northern end of the park. Today, most of the buildings in the neighborhood are owned by New York University.
St. Mark's Place, named after St Mark's Church in-the-Bowery, is a storied street in New York's East Village.

Try Kenka for Japanese, Xi'An for Chinese, Mamoun's for Falafel, Gem Spa for a Egg Cream, the list of establishments goes on-and-on.
