Statue of Liberty
What represents New York and the United States? I think it has to be the Statue of Liberty! It makes everyone believe that the United States is a land of the free and where we believe in and yearn for liberty. It’s like the beginning of the movie “The Legend of 1900”; when you see the Statue of Liberty, you are seeing New York. When you see her, you see America.
She also has the name of the “Goddess of Liberty, shining upon the earth”. She is a national monument in the United States, a symbol of America. Perched atop Liberty Island at the mouth of Hudson River, she wears a crown of lights, raises a torch of freedom high in the air and holds the Declaration of Independence in her hand.
Usually, one takes a ferry from Battery Park in Manhattan to get to the Statue of Liberty. It’s the most common method.
There are 2 types of tickets, standard admission and package admission.
(Standard admission includes arrival to Liberty Island,
Ellis Island, the bottom of the statue and the audio guide. The package admission includes an extra ticket to reach the crown of the statue).
This is a very popular spot. From buying the ticket to lining up to board the ferry, it took 1 hour. If you want to avoid the peak hours, getting there really early or really late is a good choice. However, because the distance is relatively close, it’s already lower Manhattan.
Once the ferry pulls from the dock, you can look out and see Lower Manhattan of New York City! Manhattan has the highest concentration of population in New York’s 5 administrative regions. It is also the smallest of the 5. It is described as the entire country’s economic and cultural center. It is the central business district of downtown New York, an area with the most concentrated number of high-rise buildings. I guess I don’t need to say more once you see the images below.

New York Museum of Modern Art
MOMA is the abbreviation for New York’s renowned Museum of Modern Art. The collections here are some of the world’s top and finest selections both in terms of quantity and quality. Perhaps only the Musée d’Orsay of Paris can be comparable.
Most people come to New York’s MOMA for “The Starry Night” by Van Gogh. This for me is also my favorite work from Van Gogh. The melancholy and passion we see here is unforgettable.
In 1889, Van Gogh’s mental illness struck him again. After an intense argument with Gauguin, he cut off one of his ears, wrapped it in a handkerchief and gave it as a gift to a prostitute. After that, he was sent to the Saint-Paul Asylum in Saint-Rémy. He ended up staying there for 1 year and 8 days. There, he continued to offer creative work, completing some 150 oil paintings and 100 sketches. His drawings now are completely leaning toward Expressionism. In his paintings, painted strokes much like waves in the sea and balls of fire are filled with a deep sense of melancholy and his tragic illusions. The oil painting “The Starry Night” is representative of this period in his life.
Other than the best of Van Gogh, here you’ll also find the best of Picasso. This incredible work, entitled “Les Demoiselles d'Avignon” is not only indicative of a great turning point in Picasso’s personal art career, it is a revolutionary breakthrough in contemporary Western art, which has led to the rise of cubism.

Of course, they are going to New York to see a Broadway opera! New York's Times Square, where the famous Broadway Avenue, lined by a large number of theaters, has become a symbol of American modern dance art and entertainment. Here, we must go to a theater to enjoy a genuine Broadway! The select multi-Broadway show, divided into different theaters. Although some classics are still staged year after year, like Phantom of the Opera cats and so on, will be released at different times of new works. When I was in New York, Disney's Broadway just released two big drama, The Lion King and Aladdin. Because before seen performances of The Lion King at Disneyland, but also those of other more local productions are afraid not read, so he chose Aladdin. Tickets can be purchased at the official website, the official website to buy more at ease because you need to select their opera, choose the time sessions, and also the seat of choice. Different seating price is not the same. Oh! Successful purchase, you will receive an order confirmation message, and orders PDF mailbox will have to confirm, to the time when you go to the theater, but also in electronic format and then comment entity in exchange for votes. Into the theater inside, it was shocked decoration to the theater! It is looking at luxury, ah! My seat, though not in the middle of the stage, from very close, exact HD effect, and the following stage symphony live music performances Awesomely! The short end of each performance, the audience was warmly applauded, especially black wizard actor brother, the focus of audience attention, performing fantastic!

New York Public Library
The biggest public library in the United States is the New York Public Library.
Believe it or not, but the first movie to the “Spiderman” series had a fleeting scene filmed here at the public library as well!
The library is home to some of the earliest copies of classic pieces of English and American literature, famous drafts from writers and other precious, valuable antique works of literature. This location also served as the central research library for New York’s public library system. It oversees 3 research libraries and 84 library branches, spread across 3 regions in New York. There are over 3 million books in the branches’ collection.
What’s worth visiting the most in the public library is actually the reading room. This is room no. 315. It is 90.5 m long, 23.8 m. wide and 15.8 m high. All around you’ll see open bookshelves and long windows. There are large chandeliers dropping from the ceiling. There are long reading tables and very comfortable chairs in the room. On the table, you will find copper lights. There are computers in the room, connected to the internet.
But for some reason it’s been switched off. I could only look at photos on display. It felt like you’re traveling to a Harry Potter movie, much like the dining hall in Hogwarts.
Everything in the library is free. Many famous writers come here to research and find information. During the Great Depression, a lot of people self-studied here at the university level. This is why nowadays there are still many shared rooms for citizens to use.
