The Statue of Liberty, the universal symbols of Freedom and Democracy,
designed by Sculptor Frederick Auguste Bertholdi, stands on a small
island in the middle of the New York City harbor. The 151-feet (46-meters)
tall monument was a gift of international friendship from the people
of France in commemoration of the USA centennial anniversary in 1876.
It stands atop a granite pedestal above the walls of a star shaped
abutment. It was not completed and dedicated until October 28 1886.
You can ride the special Statue of Liberty Ferries from Battery Park
at the downtown tip of Manhattan or from Liberty State Park in New
Jersey to view it at close range. The statue is open for visitors
every day between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM except December 25. There are
no entry fees to the Statue of Liberty; however, you must purchase
the ferry tickets.
The ride takes you across New York harbor past the Statue of Liberty
with a great view of the Manhattan skyline. It is a great way to see
the Statue of Liberty and the New York skyline without spending a
lot of time and without spending any money.
Figment of its own imagination sets Los Angeles into a vibrant city,
a tangle of freeways and sprawling suburbs where anyone without a
car is considered intellectually impaired. LA is a feast of fame-associated
sights - cruise Sunset Strip, walk Rodeo Drive or Hollywood Boulevard,
Venice Beach, gawk at Beverly Hills. Be prepared to curdle the American
Dream. The lists of attractions are endless: Disneyland is the mother
of them all, and Universal Studios reflects the thrill rides. You
can feel the footsteps of stars and breathe their blessed air.
The City of Washington is a far livelier, attractive town situated
in Columbia offering endless attractions, from Monuments to federal
puissance, such as the Capitol, Supreme Court. White House and Washington
Monument are designed to impress visitors, while such historical structures
as the Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, FDR Memorial, and Vietnam
Wall are sometimes exultant, sometimes sobering reminders of the past.
The nation's capital also boasts one of the world's premiere research
organizations, the titanic Smithsonian Institution, all of whose museums
are free to the public. Moreover, when you are ready for the real
Washington, the city behind the federal city, make sure to visit the
cultural and culinary attractions of such neighborhoods as Georgetown,
Adams-Morgan, Dupont Circle and Shaw & the New U District.
|Walt Disney World in
The huge resort complex covering 47 square miles is not just a
theme park. Visitors can enjoy miles of outdoor recreations available
there including hiking, biking, boating, and swimming.
The resort contains 4 separate theme parks, 3 water parks, and 99
holes of golf on several different courses. It has three separate
areas containing shopping, dining, and entertainment facilities
as well as a fourth area with nightclubs.
A new addition to the resort is the exclusive sports complex where
Disney hosts a wide variety of sporting events. In addition, there
are many Disney owned and operated hotels and several non-Disney
hotels in the resort. All this combined with many other attractions
in the Orlando and central Florida area can be quite awe-inspiring.
All other Disney resorts consist of a single theme park and are
quite small compared to the massive resort complex in Florida.
The towering world trade center dominated the skyline of Manhattan
Island from the time they were completed in 1973 until that fateful
day of September 11, 2001 when two passenger aircraft under the control
of terrorist hijackers crashed into the towers.
|The twin towers of the
World Trade Center
As the world watched, the towers were swallowed up in flame until
they each collapsed into mountains of rubble and took the lives of
nearly 3000 people including 350 brave rescue workers.
Today, there is a fissure in the skyline of lower Manhattan like a
missing tooth in the otherwise gleaming smile of the city. The rubble
has been removed and the debris cleared from the site, which is now
known as Ground Zero. There is little to see at Ground Zero. The large
area where the twin towers once stood is now a big open area where
the ghostly footprints of the twin towers are slowly becoming demolished
by the new construction.
