1/50.- New York, Welcome to New York!
Hi! Welcome to virtual New York. If you have always wanted to visit this city, or if you are planning a visit to New York, you are at the right site. On the following pages you will have the chance to discover what the Big Apple has to offer.
The City of New York is so big and so diverse that pretending to summarize it in 50 pages is somewhat naive. Nevertheless, I will try to give you a general idea of the things to do and see in this city. By the way, if you want to experience the real thing, visit our panoramic shots --look for links to these panoramas on the following pages.
We will start our Photographic Tour in front of the Statue of Liberty, one of the symbols of New York -- and a symbol of America and freedom too. One of the first sights immigrants had of this city was of this huge statue. It was designed by Gustave Eiffel at the end of the 19th century. It represents Ms Liberty illuminating the world. The seven rays of the crown represent the seven seas and seven continents.
The Statue of Liberty is located on Liberty Island. To get there you have to take a ferry from Battery Park on the southern tip of Manhattan Island. This ferry will also take you to Ellis Island, where you can visit the Immigration Museum.
Now it is time to continue this Photographic Tour. What if we visit
another symbol of New York City, the Empire State Building?
