I finally knew why its famed as “the city that never sleeps.” New York City lived up to all my expectations. Located in the east-side of the United State, it’s one of the most populated cities in the world and comprises of five islands that are connected to one another. In order to be allowed access in the States, I had to apply for a US ESTA which is basically an automated system which determines the eligibility of travelers to the US under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) by collecting biographic information and answers to VWP questions and eligibility. I had to apply for the ESTA prior to my visit.
After landing at the J.F Kennedy International airport, I hired a New York Cab and proceeded to The Westin New York at times square. The hotel is an exhilarating achievement of architecture and art. The hotel is connected to 200000sq ft which houses among other things 13 cinema screens. My room was beautifully furnished with a perfect range of amenities and a king-size bed. The hotel stay is supplemented by the Shula’s Steak house which was a great alternative to a hectic night out in the town and its bar, popularly known as Bar 10 which is a provided a perfect environment for relaxation as sipped down several cocktails.
1.The Statue Of Liberty.
My visit to New York started off with visiting the Statue of Liberty. Standing at one hundred and one feet tall alone, together with its pedestal, the statue of liberty reaches a height of about three hundred and five feet high. The statue is situated in the Liberty Island and has a magnificent view. I had to walk up the steps which were a total of three hundred and fifty four steps to the crown from where I had a nice view over the city. As I had reserved a ticket prior to my visit, I went up to the pedestal. The experience was unforgettable.
2.The Empire State Building.
My next destination was the world famous empire state building, located in the island of Manhattan, it is most the most famous building in New York. Standing at more than three hundred and eighty meters high, it is no wonder the building has more than seventy lifts. I made my way to the eighty sixth floor where I had a breath taking view of New York as it is situated south of midtown and away from the clusters of skyscrapers in midtown.
3.The World Trade Center.
My visit to the New York City would not be complete without a visit to the World Trade Center memorial which was set up in honor of the victims of a terrorist attack in September eleventh on the year 2011. The memorial is also known as “Reflecting Absence” has cascading waterfalls which are illuminated and are situated at the exact location of the former towers. I also had the opportunity to view the New World Trade center and is magnificent site and stands at a height of 1,776 ft which symbolizes the year the US declared its independence from the British.
My visit to New York City was finally complete and it was undoubtedly the best experience of my life.

I can’t seem to remember the name of this book and it’s really bugging me. I read it when I was a teenager so I think it’s a young adult book. Also, I can recall there being at least 2 books so I think it might have been a series. It was about some kind of travel agency that could allow customers to travel in time to witness actual historic events. The agency would map out the event so they would know where/when to stand somewhere so nobody native to that time period would see them. One such book involved a trip to the Civil War era, but other than that I can’t remember what else.
