The Guggenheim Museum «There are many apples on the tree, but only one Big Apple». The old saying is very true when we talk about New-York – America’s Big Apple. The city has a lot of nicknames. Here are some of them: «The Big Apple» «The City That Never Sleeps» «The Capital of the World» «The Center of the Universe»… New York is the largest city in the United States. New York City (NYC) is in the state of New York. It’s not the capital, but it is the largest city in the country. It belongs to one of the largest urban agglomerations of the world. The population oft the city is 8 405 837 people. New York is located on the Atlantic coast in the southeastern part of New York State The city was founded in the early XVII century by Dutch colonists. Before 1664 it was called as New Amsterdam. New York is on the Hudson River. It consists of 5 boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and Staten Island. Located in the center of Midtown Manhattan, Rocketeller Center or Rockefeller Plaza is a complex of 19 commercial buildings. NBS studio, Radio City Music Hall are among them. The buildings and gardens make up this “city within a city”. The Rockefeller Center Christmas trees are largest and the most beautiful in New York. The Chrysler Building was the world’s tallest building until the Empire State Building came along. The 77-floor building is located in midtown Manhattan. It was finished in 1929. The Chrysler Building Building was done in art deco style. The millions of immigrants who had to come to America by sea were welcomed by a very tall woman, America’s symbol of freedom. The woman is still there looking out to sea. She is the Statue of Liberty, one of the most famous symbols of America. About 12 million immigrants passed through New York when they came to America. This monument was built in New York Harbor in 1886. It was a gift from the people of France. Central Park is so huge that you can get lost there. It can be called the lungs of New York. Central Park is used by thousands or New Yorkers and visitors every day. Here you will see families walking their dogs and young people riding their bikes and roller-skating. Do you like roller skate? You can also see baseball and soccer here. Some people come here just to rest. They wail, sit in the sun, listen to music, or go to the zoo. The Big Apple’s mega star is the Empire State Building. It took less than two years to build it (one year and 45 days). The building has 103 floors. Total height is 443,2 meters to top of the lightning rod. It is the world’s greatest TV tower (1,454 feet). The work was completed on November 13,1930. Over 2.5 million visitors from every state in the United States and nearly every foreign country visit “top of the Empire State” each year. The Empire State Building became the tallest skyscraper in New York on September 11, 2001. Broadway is the most famous street in New York. It is one of the longest avenues in Manhattan (25 km.), but it is famous not only for this fact. It is also famous for the small area near Times Square where Broadway crosses Seventh Avenue. This is the home of home of many Broadway theaters and is known as the “Theater District” (over 40 professional theaters). This part of Broadway is also known as “the Great White Way”. The lights from all the theaters and advertisements are very bright. The hit which was born on Broadway is “Chicago”! This fantastic musical is still the biggest hit in town. Thousands of people come to Broadway to see this great show in the Ambassador theatre. Times Square is the center of the theatre district. There are always are always a lot of tourists here. The Guggenheim Museum contains one of the world’s finest collections of contemporary art. Named the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in honor of its founder, the museum is in fact better known for its amazing building. The museum was opened in 1959 and immediately became the focus of critics. It was designed by a famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, who broke all the old standard rules and came up with a totally new concept of style. Look at its shape! Even if you are not interested in modern art, you shouldn’t miss a chance to visit one of the world’s most extravagant museum. Come and see this architectural masterpiece, which has not lost its ability to excite and surprise. I think New-York is a very beautiful city. I’d like to visit it very much. 1.
