#About the Best Stake in New York

The Peter Luger Steak House is a well-known steak house in Brooklyn, with 1 Mechlin Star displayed out front. Many consider this restaurant the best stakes in New York.

Peter Luger is under the Brooklyn Bridge, and even for the expensive menu, every day thousands of customers eat here.

If your budget is limited, go right to the dreamy Porthouse slices (must order the one for two). Not only are they huge in their size and grilled with expertise, but the Porthouse also served here are well proportioned, and receive winning care by cooks and waiters, who pour butter and fat on top. To make a long story short, you have arrived in heaven for carnivores. Enjoy!

#Tips for Peter Luger

Order a dish for two - have you noticed that Americans tend to be a little large? The dishes here are the same way. So in many restaurants, it's enough to order one dish and share between two people. Soft drinks also usually arrive in really large sizes.

Order a table a week in advance - even with the high prices, Peter Luger is very popular. You must reserve a table at least a week in advance, and during high tourists season, you should even aim for one month in advance!

Do not burn the steak - don't dare order anything 'well done,' this is how you will ruin the flagship dish. We do not recommend a stake for one person. It is significantly less tasty because it is made out of a different cut of meat.

#About the Most Well-Known Square in New York

The most well-known square in New York is Times Square, the lit up and festive, by dozens of large and glittering advertising signs covering the buildings around the square. These have long since become the square's trademark.

Usually, the square is crowded with visitors and tourists, and it will be easy to tell which people are seeing the square for the first time. The word square is the familiar definition of the area, though this is not a classical square, but more of a large open space between Broadway Avenue and 7th Avenue, and 42nd to 47th Street.

The Square is named after the newspaper, the New York Times, whose offices moved to the square in 1905, and has since remained there. Three weeks after the newspaper moved into the square, the first neon sign was hung up, that has since outlined the character and style of the square.

At the beginning of the 20th century, many known stars spent time here, like Charlie Chaplin and Fred Astaire, as the place developed and theaters were built, and restaurants and entertainment centers. In the 1930's, during the Great Depression, the square became the center of the sex industry, and was mainly visited by gamblers and criminals until the 1990's. At this stage, Rudolph Giuliani, the mayor of New York City at the time, cleaned up the square and crime from the questionable characters that came here, and closed the brothels.

Today you will find many giant stores, TV studios, well-known restaurants, impressive hotels and popular businesses.



#Tourists at the Square

The Square's quieter hours are in the morning, and as the day goes on more and more visitors arrive, there is no doubt that the peak hours are in the evening, when the lights and signs light up and stand out in the darkness. You will find here many attractions for tourists, and maybe this is also the reason no one misses a chance to visit here. There are 12,500 hotel rooms, occupied by 26 million visitors each year. Here are more than 250 restaurants, and about 1,500 different businesses. Street performers are spread out along the street and the square, among them artists, painters, performers, and different acts. The square is visited by 39 million visitors each year.


#Midnight on New Year's Eve in Times Square

On New Year's Eve, hundreds of thousands of tourists and locals come to the square to see the Times Square New Year's Eve Ball drop, and count down together to the new year. Every year the crystals on the Ball are designed in a different way, and are able to withstand tough weather. The Ball is lifted during the last few minutes of the end of the year, and falls 120 meters along a big metal pole during the final countdown. This is a special and moving moment, and fireworks add to the atmosphere of celebrations.



#Theaters in Broadway

In the square are 40 theaters of Broadway, that sell millions of tickets each year. Here, the biggest and famous shows are performed, the hottest shows in the United States. There are shows here for all ages. The shows are well invested in, and tickets are not sold for cheap, tickets can be between 130-160 dollars per ticket.

At the center of the square you can find a kiosk for selling discount tickets, TKS, that offers tickets that have not yet been sold for same-day shows, around a 30%-50% discount. Don't worry, if you thought you would miss the kiosk, just look for the long line that spreads at the center of the square and you will immediately see it. Good luck!


#In the movies
The square has appeared in various films. In "Vanilla Sky," it can be seen totally empty, as the scene was filmed early one Sunday morning with traffic blocked.

The giant gorilla in "King Kong" destroys everything in the square, throwing people and cars in all directions. And in the zombie movie "I Am Legend," Will Smith hunts for deer in the desolate square.


#Tips
Kids and teenagers will love the shopping in Times Square, especially the concept stores. like the M&M candy store and the video store ESPN Zone.
Ground Zero
Ground Zero
#About Ground Zero

Not many know this, but the term Ground Zero does not refer to the place where the Twin Towers stood, but describes a point on the ground where there is an explosion. Mostly it is referred to in the case of atomic or other large bombs and was first used in a New York newspaper 'The Times' when describing "Ground Zero" in Japan.

In recent years, not surprisingly, the term has been coined for the destruction area after the 9/11 terror attack in New York in 2001. Two kidnapped planes crashed into the Twin Towers, known as the World Trade Center, and the towers collapsed and thousands of people were killed.

Since the cornerstone was laid until it was opened to visitors 11 years later, there was great fear of additional terrorist attacks. Only in 2006 was a plan approved for a new building designed by an architectural team led by David Childs. In the complex you can find the memorial for the events of September 11th, the museum that memorializes the events, and a white oak tree, a survivor of the disaster, that is nicknamed the 'Survival Tree."

Many of the city's tourists come here to pay respect to the 3,000 victims who lost their lives here. Every year, on September 11th, a memorial ceremony takes place here, called "Tribute in Light." During the ceremony, two vertical beams of light are projected, resembling the towers that stood here.

The Statue Of Liberty
Statue Of Liberty
#History of the Statue of Liberty

The statue is actually named "Liberty Enlightening the World" and is known by the name Statue of Liberty, created by the sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi. Originally Bartholdi planned to place the statue in the Suez Canal, but the Egyptian government could not find the funding for the construction of the statue, and the project was delayed.

Finally, it was funded by the French government, and given as a gift to the American people, and inaugurated in 1886, when the base building was funded by the readers of an American newspaper as a donation. After a few years the island on which the statue stands received the name "Liberty Island," and the statue became a symbol for New York City, and for the United States in general.

The statue is of the goddess of freedom, and who shines freedom to all continents on Earth, symbolized by her seven-thorned headpiece on her head. The torch held by the goddess lights the way for all those arriving in the United States. In her other hand, she holds a tablet with the date independence was declared in the United States, written in Roman numerals. The height of the statues from the bottom up, is a little more than 92 meters. The flame was exchanged a few years back to a torch made of gold, and the new torch was placed in the atrium inside the statue itself, from where you can climb to the top of the statue.


#What does the Statue of Liberty Symbolize?

The Statue of Liberty is the most famous symbol in the world for the free world and democracy. It symbolizes the values that America believes in, like the right for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It stands there, impressive and so tall on Liberty Island, overlooking the New York Harbor, standing its ground as one of the most impressive statues in the world.

The statue was designed by the sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, and the architect Gustav Eifel, and was a friendly present from the French for the 100 year anniversary for American Independence, in 1846.

The large and amazing statue, made of copper, steel and iron, is designed with classical elements and iconography. If you were wondering, Iconography is the study of symbols and images, the images and modes of description in the various arts in a certain period.

Its design is what made the statue the most amazing technical achievement of the 19th century. Visitors can climb up to the crown of the statue. The view of the port from the crown is almost incomprehensible. It is New York City and you are not dreaming!



#What Was the Colossus of Rhodes?

Emma Lazarus, a Jewish American poet, wrote her most famous song called "The New Colossus" in 1883. The first two lines of her song are etched into a metal plaque at the base of the State of Liberty in New York - "Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, with conquering limbs astride from land to land..." So who was the brazen giant of Greek fame?

The song talks about a similar statue to the Statue of Liberty that stood more than 2,000 years ago, on the Greek island of Rhodes. The Colossus of Rhodes was a very large statue of the Greek god Helios that was 34 meters tall. It stood near the port of Rhodes, and is considered one of the ancient world wonders. The Colossus is a modern name given to the statue for its large dimensions, from the name Colosseum.

The Colossus was built in the memory of the amazing and surprising victory of the people of the small island of Rhodes over the large army that occupied the island for a year. So it was built by the decision of the island locals by the artist Chares, as a monument to the god of the sun, Helios, the patron of the island. The statue was placed at the entrance to the port where ships entered, and they used to sail through his legs.

In 226 BC the Colossus collapsed during a strong earthquake. The residents of the island saw this as the will of the gods, and it was never rebuilt. The beauty of the statue continued to impress people, even in ruins, and it was maintained by the locals in this condition for many years. During the Arab conquering of the island, the ruins were stolen and destroyed, and any remains were sold as metal scraps.



#How as the Statue Damaged During the Black Tom Explosion?

The Black Tom explosion was a terrorist attempt by German agents that happened in Jersey City in New Jersey, on July 30, 1916. The purpose of the explosion was to damage American ammunition that was on its way to the Allies during World War I. This incident, that happened before the United States officially joined the war, is famous for the damage it caused to the Statue of Liberty. However, it did no damage to the war efforts. The United States joined the fighting in the war together with the Allied forces, and defeated the Germans.


#In the movies
The Statue of Liberty has starred in many motion pictures, such as "Ex-Man," in which the super heroes fight inside her head, or covered by ice in "The Day After Tomorrow" and the "Ghostbusters II" in which Lady Liberty walks through the streets of NYC.

#The Monument for John Lennon

In Central Park, you will find the monument dedicated to the memory of one of the most talented musicians the world has ever known. John Lennon, who led the Beatles. This famous monument is named after his song " Strawberry Fields Forever," which he wrote with his partner Paul McCartney.

The entrance is located across from the Dakota Building, where Lennon lived during his last years. At the entrance to his house, he was murdered in 1980 by a crazy fan.

At the corner, a memorial was put up by Lennon's widow, Yoko. A triangular piece of land, both sides pointing to both sides of the park. At the top, you will find the mosaic floor with the word "Imagine" in the center, like Lennon's great song, in which, ironically, he suggested imagining a world without wars and violence.

Around the monument, you can sit on benches put here, for giving visitors a moment of peace and thought about the hero to so many music fans. Yoko Ono donated over one million dollars for the design of the monument, and its maintenance and some see her car stop by nearby.

On the anniversary of the murder of Lennon, a crowd gathers of supporters and fans, and the artist's memory is kept. They stay in the "Strawberry Field" until the small hours of the night, and pay their respects. On these days you will find flowers, candles, and objects that visitors leave behind.


#Tips

Try getting here on the anniversary of the death of Lennon, for the ceremony that takes places at the entrance to Central Park, a few hundred yards from the Dakota House in Manhattan, where Lennon and Yoko lives, and where he was murdered at age 40.

Central Park
Central Park
#About New York's Biggest Park

You have arrived at one of the most well-known and pleasant places in New York - Central Park.

Central Park was established in 1857, on land that was used for herding sheep, and also partly a poor neighborhood. Walking through the park is an attraction in itself, though the most magical spots can be found between the narrow pathways, between trees and bushes. You can also see nice musical performances here, take part of fun activities, both for children and adults, look towards the view from different viewpoints in the park, that overlooks the lake and the architecture of the amazing New York skyline.

Visitors to Central Park are not necessarily tourists. New Yorkers take advantage of the wide spaces for sports, for laying out on the grassy lawns, to tan or read under the open sky. With that, it shouldn't be difficult to find a quiet corner for you and a partner, and even for a nice picnic. Near the park, you will find many delis where you can buy all the ingredients you need for the meal. You can rent bikes and ride along the park, or rent a boat and row in the lake.

On pleasant spring and summer days many locals and tourists tend to arrive in Central Park to watch the shows, festivals, and different concerts performed for the public, and some of these shows are also free.

This huge park is easy to get lost in. In an area that is 4 kilometers long and 800 meters wide, you can see over 25,000 trees and 1,500 types of plants and animals.


#History of Central Park
It is not by accident that Central Park is so important in New York culture. Central Park was the first designed park in the United States, and was so because of the need to build a big public park. In order to execute this plan, New York's government conducted a competition for the design of the park, and the plan that was chosen was by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. Three years later the park opened.

One of the innovations in the park was a different transportation system for each purpose: sidewalks for pedestrians, special pathways for horses, and streets for carriages and vehicles, that back then did not exist. What is special about these streets that go up and down the park, is that they are embedded in the park and integrate well between the dense vegetation. It hides them from the pedestrians and maintains the nice aesthetics of the park. This is how it happened that the park has 36 bridges, each with its own style and character.

At the beginning of the 20th century the park was neglected and abandoned. From the 1960's it was considered a place of crime and criminals. Many of the residents avoided going near it. This is why the mayor La Guardia decided to rehabilitate it, and restore its image.

In 1980 a special foundation was established whose purpose was to maintain Central Park. It began with the renovation and maintenance of the park, and in 2003 the park celebrated 150 years to the park's establishment.

An especially interesting point has to do with the changing weather. The tough winter months has been endured by the park as well. In the past the lake had frozen completely during winter. Though as the years went, and construction grew around the park, the lake began freezing less and less, and today it is a rare event if the park lake freezes at all.


#The Building of Central Park
More than 80 years of building have made the park what you see in front of you today. The story of the building began in the 1840's, when several important people, including architect Andrew Downing, the author Washington Irving, and the Editor of the New York Evening Post William Bryant convinced the city municipality to buy the land, without a clear understanding what the land would be used for.

Back then the land was full of mud, and unevenly covered with trees and bushes, poor shepherds were living around the grounds in wooden shacks, with pigs and goats wandering around the rocks.

The building began in 1857 and involved 3,000 construction workers and 400 horses. They prepared the ground, cleared the ground and made it construction ready. The soil was brought straight from New Jersey, and more than 4 million trees were sent from around the world. Most of the rocks that were here previously, stayed in their place.

The building provided jobs to many of the poor residents in the area that suffered from an economic crisis, and in 1876 the park was opened to visitors officially.


#Disputes over Central Park
Central Park was the source of many disputes over the years. Each wanted the ground to be used for something else. The architect Olmsted wanted to turn the park into a place where visitors arrived to enjoy the landscape. He wanted to limit them to a passive experience and enjoyment that would allow limited use of the land. The public, though, felt that this was a perfect place for sporting activities, and the public won apparently, since over the years playgrounds were opened, a zoo, and a rocky area that is climbed by children.

However, the disputes over the area were not over. In 1899 great pressure was put on the municipality, until it finally allowed the use of cars in the park. A few decades later, the residents of Fifth Avenue also succeeded in getting the trees trimmed, that blocked their view from their expensive apartment terraces.


#The Dark Past of Central Park
Crime, drugs and violence were an inseparable part of the atmosphere, especially in the 1960's and 1970's, Central Park turned into a symbol of desperation, and a place to stay away from.

It was so intimidating, that tour guides warned visitors from walking around the park at night. What did not help the image, were the killings and murders that became the history of New York, and happened in the park itself.

One of the most well-known cases was the murder of Michael O'Sullivan. O'Sullivan was a kindly homeless person who used to spend his time around the park, especially around high school students who came to consume alcohol and drugs. The homeless man was murdered by two young 15-year-old boys.

Another terrible murder happened on the evening of July 16th, right on the same day that John Kennedy Junior's plane crashed, the son of the famous late President Kennedy. Around the park screams were heard of someone young. The young lady, whose cries were not enough to grab attention, was brutally murdered, even though this happened in one of the more populated areas of the park.

Across the street in front of the Dakota building, John Lennon, the leader of the Beatles, was murdered. In his memory a monument was placed for him with the writing 'imagine.' See more by clicking on the tag "Monuments".


#The Statues of Central Park
If you walk around the park you will notice the variety of statues that populate it. The statues are definitely worth your attention, and the most well-known of the group is probably the bronze statue that describes the story of Alice in Wonderland. It is located on the Eastern side of the lake.

On the West side of the lake you will be able to find the statue of Hans Christian Andersen, by Georg Lober. In the Bethesda Fountain you can see statues by Emma Stebbins. Near the Metropolitan Museum you can see the obelisk Cleopatra's Needle, 3,500 years old.

At the edge of the avenue "The Mall," with the pretty elm trees, you can see statues of Shakespeare, Christopher Columbus and Walter Scott.

Empire State Building
Empire State Building
#About the Tower that Became the Symbol of New York

The Empire State Building, a tall skyscraper in New York at the height of 443 meters, with 103 floors. It is one of the most dominant symbols of the Big Apple, and is located on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 34th Street. The Empire State Building was planned and built between 1929-1931 in the art-deco style, by William Lamb. It is considered by the American Society Of Civil Engineers as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.

Pretty fast after the launch of the building, this building became a Hollywood star, and has starred in quite a few movies, from romantic comedies to dramas, and action movies. There is almost no cinema enthusiast that is not familiar with the image of King Kong climbing the building from 1933. This tower is a common place for marriage proposals and in general, the amazing landscape view that extended from its upper floors made it one of the city's romantic places.

In 1931 the President of the United States Herbert Hoover pressed on a button in the White House that lit the lights of the Empire State Building. This is how this incredible building was inaugurated, back then it was the tallest building in the world. As of 2016, the building is the fifth tallest building in the United States, and 29th in the world.

The building's stairs are also somewhat of an attraction, once a year an annual race takes place in New York, where hundreds of people climb the stairs from the bottom all the way to the top of the tower.

A few statistics - this building has 6,500 windows, 73 elevators, and 1,860 stairs. It weighs no less than 365,000 tons. Occasionally, for very special events, the Empire State Building is lit up in colorful and impressive colors.



#"Dare to Dream" Exhibition

To a certain extent, the story of the Empire State Building is the story of the American dream. The exhibit "Dare to Dream" that is displayed here, presents the history, the architecture and the construction of the building. There is a lot of content from the archives of the well-known skyscraper of New York. The exhibit provides a perfect experience that lets you learn about the work of the pioneering work of the architects, the builders and workers who built it. In the exhibition you will be exposed to original documents, photographs from the time period, architectural sketches, lists and financial accounting daily documents. Additionally, you can see the photos and souvenirs that belong to more than 3,400 workers that helped make history.



#The Lights of the Empire State Building

Since 1976, the Empire State Building has been an international symbol of the New York skyline. The lights that light up on the building protect the reoccurring tradition of changing the lights according to different events along the year.

In 2012, the system was further upgraded with an LED lighting system, capable of displaying 16 million colors, which can be changed instantly. Sometimes the lights are even synchronized with music broadcasts on different radio stations and this makes the building the world's largest light organ.

On Halloween, the holiday always makes its mark on the building.

The international lighting designer Mark Birkman, is the one who planned the lights and placed the LED lights, synced with the beat of the music played in the background. 100 meters of colorful lights, spectacular and festive, can be seen from almost every corner of Manhattan.

Different artists gained the right to use the lights as part of their creations: the artist Alicia Keys, Frank Sinatra, and rapper Jay Z.



#The Story About the Plane that Crashed into the Building

The Empire State Building was the tallest building in New York for many years, with the building of the Twin Towers in 1972 the Empire State Building was bumped down to second tallest. It is unnecessary to mention that after the attacks on the Twin Towers on September 11th, 2001, it regained its title as the tallest building in New York for a certain time.

During World War II, from an airport in Massachusetts a plane departed that was meant land at the airport in New Jersey. The flight's purpose was to partake in the fighting, and was piloted by Captain Smith, who had been through 30 bombardments attempts on the European front.

When the plane got near New York it faced thick fog that limited visibility in the area. Captain Smith asked for permission to land in La Guardia Airport, but was told visibility was also bad there. The control tower ordered Smith to continue the flight over Manhattan keeping an altitude of 457 meters.

With that, the fog made its mark, and caused the pilot to lose his way. He began lowering the plane towards the landing in New York, while almost crashing into the GE Building, 259 meters high. In the last minute the pilot managed to avoid the disaster and moved out of the way, however, unfortunately, the pilot crashed into the tallest building in New York at the time, a building with 103 floors, the Empire State Building.

The plane hit the 79th floor of the building, and created a huge hole in the side of the building. One of the two engines of the plane went right across the building and fell about 270 meters until it hit the roof of another building and caused a fire. The second engine dropped down the elevator shaft in the building to the bottom, and other fragments scattered in the street below.

In the building a fire erupted, which the firefighters managed to put out miraculously after 40 minutes. Luckily, the foundations of the building were not damaged. The accident cost 14 lives, 3 crew members (2 pilots), and 11 people from inside the building. 26 people were injured. Until today, there is a mark of a missing stone in the building's exterior from the plane crash.

And, if not enough miracles happened in this building, one of the injured people were put into the elevator by the paramedics not knowing the elevator was damaged. The elevator fell down 75 floors - however the injured woman survived this insanity. This affair won a Guinness World Record.



#Architecture of the Empire State Building

The Empire State Building is considered the cultural symbol of America and is an example of the Art-Deco architecture, that developed in France and is characterized in geometrical vertical decorations. Art-Deco is a style that began developing at the start of the 20th century and gathered speed between the years 1920-1930.

To avoid the sun's light, the building was designed in a staircase-like shape - the lower floors are wide, and as the floors go up they become thinner, until reaching the top of the building.

Broadway Street
#About the Theater of New York

The street where you can see incredible shades of New York, is Broadway Street, the theater street of New York. This street is actually a long avenue that divides Manhattan into two. Broadway in English means a broad, or wide, street.

Most of the streets and avenues in Manhattan are built as cross-sections forming right-angled intersections, however Broadway Avenue goes in a diagonal way across the city, and is not parallel to any street. The reason is that Broadway was paved before the majority of the streets and avenues in Manhattan.

Today, Broadway is a second name to the theater industry. The theater district and Lincoln Center, located on the street, present a collection of shows, mostly musicals. The Broadway theaters represent the highest quality theater in the commercial English speaking world. In 2012, over a billion dollars in ticket sales were for Broadway shows, and were watched by more than 12 million visitors.

In 2010 New York declared its decision to close the street to car traffic in the busy areas of the street, to avoid issues of overcrowding. Store owners loved this idea, and began taking out chairs and picnic tables to the street, in the Times Square area.

Dozens of stores, restaurants and cafes, street performances and amazing shows - this street is the best show in town...

#Cheap Tickets

At the center of the square you can find a kiosk for selling discount tickets, TKS, that offers tickets that have not yet been sold for same-day shows, around a 30%-50% discount. Don't worry, if you thought you would miss the kiosk, just look for the long line that spreads at the center of the square and you will immediately see it. Good luck!

#Shopping in Broadway

There are hundreds of stores on Broadway Avenue, especially during the section between 8th Avenue and Canal Street, offering great shopping for designer clothing. There are expensive designer stores like Prada, as well as cheaper stores and large international brands. Try getting a glimpse of the Bloomingdales department store, where there are many surprises to be found.
