Transcript of A FOREIGNER IN NEW YORK

Hope you have had a great time ! Antonio is a Spanish traveler person who has been in New York. Here are few of the places and buildings he visited. A FOREIGNER IN NEW YORK Central Park is a public park at the center of Manhattan in New York City. The park initially opened in 1857, on 843 acres of city-owned land. In 1858, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux won a design competition to improve and expand the park with a plan they entitled the Greensward Plan. It is one of the world's largest urban public parks, but somewhat smaller than several other great parks, as for example Paris' Bois de Vincennes (995 acres) and Madrid's Casa de Campo ( 4,256 acres).
The park is currently managed by the Central Park Conservancy under contract with the city government. It's the most visited urban park in the United States. CENTRAL PARK Chinatown, the largest enclave of Chinese people in the Western hemisphere, is located in the borough of Manhattan in New York City, USA, bordering the Lower East Side to its east and Little Italy to its north.







With an estimated population of 90,000 to 100,000 people, Manhattan's Chinatown is also one of the oldest ethnic Chinese enclaves outside of Asia. It is one of seven Chinatown neighborhoods in New York City and nine in the New York City Metropolitan Area, which contains the largest ethnic Chinese population outside of Asia, enumerating 682,265 individuals as of the 2010 United States Census. CHINATOWN NEW YORK MADISON SQUARE GARDEN Here is a video of the city Antonio went to the Madison Square Garden when the Knicks played against the Nets, although this basketball team nowadays doesn't exist.
Madison Square Garden is a multi-purpose indoor arena in midtown Manhattan in New York City . The Garden is used for professional basketball and ice hockey, as well as boxing, concerts, ice shows, circuses, and other forms of sports and entertainment. It resides in close proximity to other Manhattan landmarks, including the Empire State Building, Koreatown, and Macy's at Herald Square.
Opened on February 11, 1968, it is now the oldest active major sporting facility in the New York metropolitan area and is the oldest arena in the National Hockey League.It is also the third-busiest music arena in the world in terms of ticket sales. EMPIRE STATE BUILDING The Empire State Building is a 102-story skyscraper located in Midtown Manhattan. Its name is derived from the nickname for New York, the Empire State.
The Empire State Building is generally thought of as an American cultural icon. It is designed in the distinctive Art Deco style and has been named as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. The building and its street floor interior are designated landmarks of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission, and confirmed by the New York City Board of Estimate. It was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1986. TIMES SQUARE Times Square is a major commercial intersection in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue and stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets. Times Square is the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway theater district, one of the world's busiest pedestrian intersections, and a major center of the world's entertainment industry.

It is quite spectacular the concentration of neon signs that have repeatedly been immortalized in movies and on television news, as it is too iluminated with shocking decorations. It's the typical image we have about New York City, such as Statue of Liberty. THE STATUE OF LIBERTY The Statue of Liberty is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in New York Harbor, designed by Frédéric Bartholdi. The statue, a gift to the United States from the people of France, is of a robed female figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, who bears a torch and a tabula ansata upon which is inscribed the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776. A broken chain lies at her feet. The statue is an icon of freedom and of the United States: a welcoming signal to immigrants arriving from abroad.
The statue was administered by the United States Lighthouse Board until 1901 and then by the Department of War; since 1933 it has been maintained by the National Park Service. It had to be renewed too many times due to few of factors.
