New York is a city of superlatives. In addition to world financial center and shopping mecca, boasts renowned restaurants, architectural masterpieces and museums and galleries that make it one of the largest cultural centers in the world.
The epicenter of New York life has been and is still largely the island of Manhattan, which is surrounded by four distinct districts, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, all with their own character and attractions.
Mass immigration in the nineteenth and early twentieth century led to the emergence of neighborhoods of different ethnicities, with Manhattan quickly becoming a cultural melting pot that held the whole world in his 58 square km. The diversity product of the rich history of the city, contributing to its importance as a multicultural capital.
Although New York is marked by the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the event has failed to undermine the charm and vitality of the city. In the space where the World Trade Center was being built a memorial plaza with two lakes evoking the silhouette of the twin towers, and the registered name of the approximately 3,000 people who died there. Definitely a place for reflection for locals and visitors.
Moreover, Coney Island will be the center of a huge investment that includes new luxury hotels, shops, cinemas, an indoor water park and the first roller coaster ciuad in 80 years. The project called Brooklyn Bridge Park is already beginning to give their first fruits to become public recreation area about 2 miles along the river from her northern Manhattan to Atlantic Avenue.
