Since Peter Minuit bought the island of Manhatten from the Manhatten Indians in 1626 for about twenty dollars in beads, cloth and trinkets, New York City has been one of the most exciting cities in the world. There's an undercurrent of energy that keeps the city growing and changing. It is home to leading artists, writers, and performers. It is the center of commerce, culture, and communications.
Although the great hall on Ellis Island is now a museum, New York remains America's gateway to the world. And everything about New York is world class. From the famous flagship Bloomingdale's and Macy's stores to Madison Sqaure Garden. And if there is anyone with world class pride, it's a New Yorker. If you have any doubt, just look at the way they root for their Knicks and Rangers, or consume the Sunday New York Times.
It's the city that never sleeps... but when you need to, there are premier hotels fir for kings and queens... The Essex House, The Regency, and The Plaza. It's the city with th unforgettable skyline: the Empire State Building, the World Trade Center, and, of course, the Statue of Liberty.
