Newest Review: ... most of Manhattan skyscrapers do today, only being built out of bloody-mindedness, if you ask me. How can you not think of those jumpers when you buy office space there now? Some bankers even have parachutes issued to them in the Empire State Building as part of the perks packages. But as mighty a financial powerhouse symbol the Twin towers were they were half empty and a white elephant when ... more

Just as the older generation remember where they were and what they were doing when Kennedy was shot, the younger lot all recall what they were doing when the Twin Towers were hit. I had been travelling in America just a year before with a bird and was living with her in Brighton the following year. I got home from work and she was in ashen faced in front of the TV. I was oblivious to what had happened in America that day and the first thing I saw on the box was the replay of the World Trace Centre collapsing. The first thing your brain registers is how is it possible that seemingly indestructible objects like the twin towers that you were standing on top of just one ... Read the complete review

I first visited New York City in 1999 and was blown away by the buzz I got from the place. Since that trip I have been back seven times and have another trip planned for springtime next year. On that first trip I was really green - it was only my second trip to the US and New York offered a stark contrast to the two other cities I had visited - San Francisco and Las Vegas. New York seemed more European yet altogether more brash. It seemed more serious and offered so much for us as na´ve tourists we realised one trip was never going to be enough despite packing as much as possible in on our 4 night stay. In 2001 we made our third trip to the city, ... Read the complete review

Destination: New York City Hours on the plane: Around 6 hours Hotel we stayed in: The Inn (See Trip Advisor Website) ~ Overview ~ Having never been to New York City before, this was an exhilarating journey that did not disappoint me. I found that there was so much too do and so little time (10 days!) and the food is scrumptious. As I am an avid movie fan I can also relate to many movies which include the city which never sleeps. If you like history then this city is steeped in it, from Wall street to the greatest attraction of them all the Statue of Liberty. Just sitting in a yellow cab made me warm inside and the ride through ... Read the complete review

***New York New York*** This is only a review from my perspective so will of course not feature all the attractions one can se on a trip to New York. Hopefully it does touch upon the main things to do and in a positive light! New York is one of those cities that I will always be a must see destination and one which entices back travellers year after year. It has been through some huge changes from the city of grime and crime to getting a make over as a shopper's paradise then the sadness of the twin towers and rising from the ashes. My Review of New York is from pre 911 but I feel the favourite places and things that you do when there and I did are still ... Read the complete review

I've been to New York three times now - And each time has been very special, and very different. The first time i visited, the place was very intimidating, the heat generated by the traffic, buildings and September sunshine was oppressive, and the noise and pace of everything took much getting used too. This was back in 1999 - The World Trade Centre was still standing proud (and was the personal highlight of my trip) and as a 21 year old lad - The world was my oyster. Returning in 2006, the mood had changed a little - The streets werent quite so crowded, the pace seemed to have a slowed a little and the heat wasnt so distracting (This was January ...
