A Tour Guide Through New York City
by Mark Slaney
New York City is one of the largest and most fascinating places to visit around the world. It is especially known for its activities to do while staying at one of its luxurious hotels, such as the Hilton Garden or Hampton Inn, which may be expensive but worth the trip. Depending on what part of the city you’re at and what your interests are, you can be sure that New York City has it all. Whether you came there to shop or to see sports, the big apple provides different ways to get to your intended location, even if it requires a taxi cab. If you are ready for the next baseball game, you can travel by subway to see the Mets or the Yankees play in Queens or at Yankee Stadium. Other activities to spend your leisure time there is to see a Broadway play, musical, or museum by taking a tour bus that tells about more sightseeing adventures. As your destination is just a few blocks away, you may want to stop at a restaurant first, where you will encounter many pizzerias and stake houses downtown, as that is a great part of the food and culture New York City is known for.
Besides all of the food and recreation New York has to offer, there is much to learn about the city’s rich architecture and history that has taken place over the last decade, such as the Empire State Building and Ground Zero, the memorial place for 9/11 victims. But the city is the biggest center for celebrities to build their careers at, whether it is to sing or film movies and television shows. It is the city where daily and night time talk shows take place to do humor and entertainment, along with news stations to discuss current events and happenings all over the world.
Most people who do enjoy touring the city, especially in Manhattan Island, can take a ride on a horseback trolley or walk through Central Park. One of the biggest attractions in that part of the city is to see the Statue of Liberty, where many people take cruises to visit it up close or to pass by it to learn about other parts of the city. If you have already been to New York City and are there for educational purposes, you can think about going to school there to obtain a better job, but many of their colleges have high expectations to be able to join them. Some students may find that getting an associates degree from their previous college town will help them to qualify into one of New York’s popular schools, such as Columbia or Cornell University. No matter what field you are studying in, whether it’s in healthcare or criminal justice, you can think about earning a bachelor’s or master’s degree in some of the most reputable colleges in the United States. For example, if you are going to law school, you can become a lawyer in a city that constantly has employment opportunities that no other city consistently offers graduates. You can become an architect or a construction worker that is full of reconstruction of buildings being designed. Nobody has to decide on living there permanently, but it is a good idea to learn about what its schools have to offer people, especially those who want to become more acclimated in their field.
Other Reasons to Visit
There are also many churches in the city of both Catholic and Protestant denominations, as well as cathedrals that are famous throughout the nation. A close relative of mine went to music school in Upper Manhattan, where he was taught to play the organ at a church that had a growing congregation. Touring churches there is a lot like going to an art museum, but there are many reasons why people attend church: they go there for special events, music, and religious study.
Whenever you do visit the city, you will also be given a handout of materials, such as flyers and brochures by people who are marketing events. Some of those events include live performances by singers, dancers, and musicians who play inside of theatres and auditoriums. The New York symphony is known as one of the best to go hear and they compare to other symphonies across the United States. Concerts are performed by musicians who play all kinds of instruments on pieces written by some of the most talented, historical composers from Beethoven to Bach.
Music artists and radio hosts are recorded all over the city by people who wish to build their careers in all types of genres. They usually go through agents who provide opportunities to establish their careers, either by finding producers that can work with them or to help them in growing their audiences. Many of the top media outlets, including radio stations and newspaper companies, such as The New York Daily News and Sirius XM, report on the news that is happening around the world in politics and in the entertainment industry.
Other News Channels
But there are also programs that are recorded on the topic of religion, explaining the events that are going on within the church, whether it is about the last meeting with the Pope or important events that are taking place. Most of the news stations that we see on television (CNN, NBC, and Fox) are located in downtown New York City, covering national affairs to make their point against each others political position. That sometimes takes up room to cover other events that different news networks can talk about. Even if they do not attract as large of an audience, they can have an impact on their listeners too, but if you are in New York City a lot, it can be the center of all marketing channels for those professions. You do not have to live there to grow your career but learn what it can offer you in advance. For those who are visiting temporarily, you can always take something valuable with you by becoming more educated and entertained through your experience there.
