New York

The events of recent years have helped to bring America together and unite behind the strength and determination of this great city. We see the rebuilding of the World Trade Center and the heart of our nation’s financial district interwoven to the tapestry of the city’s historic growth, which is evidenced all around.

This great city has been a beacon of hope to immigrants and others seeking a new life and opportunity. Beyond the skyscrapers and abundance of historic landmarks, New York continues to spark imagination and opportunity. Many historic roots are right here, even the first capital of the United States was New York City. In 1789 George Washington took his oath as president on the balcony at Federal Hall overlooking the Hudson.


The Statue of Liberty

The Statue of Liberty is a spectacular icon of freedom adorning the harbor.  Represented by a woman wearing a stola, a radiant crown and sandals, trampling a broken chain, carrying a torch in her raised right hand and a tablet, with the date of the Declaration of Independence JULY IV MDCCLXXVI inscribed in her left arm.




Times SquareTimes Square

The bustling activity and spectacular lighting of Times Square has captivated visitors from around the world. The illuminated signage has become such a tourist attraction for the area that the zoning now actually requires the buildings to be covered with billboards!

Broadway theatres and cinemas, a highlight of every tour to New York is experiencing a Broadway show.  Broadway is special, and unlike any other theatre district in the world! It becomes an entire evening of emotion, starting even before the curtain goes up.




Broad St. at Wall StreetBroad St. at Wall Street

Formerly one of New York’s top tourist attractions (visitors were treated to a bird’s-eye view of the gigantic trading floor), the stock exchange was closed to the public following the September 11,2001, attacks. The eight-story building (1903, George B. Post), which remains surrounded by guarded barricades, resembles a Roman temple with its majestic facade of Corinthian columns, each crowned by an elaborate pediment with sculptures representing commerce.
