We took the Gray Line Tour bus to Harlem, the historic black neighborhood in Manhattan. Our first stop was in front of the Dakota Building, famous not only for its luxurious apartments, but also because it was where John Lennon was murdered in 1980. This building had been declared a Historical Heritage in 1973. From there we took West Central Park Drive to the first wooden homes that were built in Harlem, followed by Jumel Morris Mansion, which dates back to 1765 and is the oldest house in Manhattan. It is now a historical museum, and once accommodated George Washington during the War of Independence.
Right on the bay that lies in front of Miami Beach and adjacent to the center of the city, Bayside is a place where tourists must go. There is shopping, restaurants for drinks, great views, live music and also you can take a boat tour to see the houses of celebrities.
South Beach is an incredible place where you can easily enjoy the good shakes in the post made by an Alicante beach that is very nice. You can drive a jet ski in the hands of a very nice man from Madrid or experience the banana boat at full speed! The party in Miami never ends and their streets hide corners that are admirable.
Hello I am Daliana and I was in Miami last year. I liked being in Miami, but now I live in Los Angeles, California. Miami is a very nice, quiet and cute city. I worked at the Funtainblue Resort hotel in Miami Beach for my best friend by Tamy.
We were strolling through Brooklyn, one of the five boroughs of New York, on a Saturday when we saw all the worshippers going into the synagogues. It was like teleporting to Jerusalem, and if we focus on the Jewish culture, we can see posters, shops, and whole buildings that belong to this community that also dominates key markets such as the diamond.
Travel back in time and see a change of culture, religion and lifestyle by walking these streets. You'll find a Satmar haredi Jewish community in contrast to anything seen before. It's like walking into 'The Mad Adventures of Rabbi Jacob' and is one of the most amazing New York experiences.
It's impressive arriving to La for the first time you find the city financial and business center surrounded but skyscrapers. Breathtaking views from any building, for example from the Westin Bonaventure Hotel, the scene of numerous films.
We drove through Bronx. They said it was a bit risky to walk through its streets. It is a neighborhood left of Harlem. We stopped to buy a drink and they told us that the neighborhood had the best nightlife around. There are houses of all kinds, but yes, with gates on all doors and windows. We saw houses with signs that authorize the police to enter without a warrant to arrest traffickers and common criminals. We were also struck by the painted faces of young boys.
DUMBO is a neighborhood in Brooklyn (itself part of New York), which means "Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass", and we just love it. It is currently undergoing a transformation on its way to becoming one of the new trendy hotspots in the city, and it is definitely appealing, with its beautiful parks and stunning views of the Manhattan skyline.
The Michigan Boulevard Historic District begins just south of Randolph Street and extends the entire length of Grant Park. As New York's Fifth Avenue, it is one of the most famous streets for having buildings into one of its sides (with the sole exception of the Art Institute of Chicago). In this long row of buildings facing the lake, you will find some of the most characteristic and oldest structures in the city. Although the street is no longer called Michigan Boulevard (renamed Michigan Avenue throughout its length) for the purposes of historical record it retains its old name. It is a must-visit for its landscape and cultural sights as well as its entertainment. Curiously, at the intersection of Jackson Boulevard is the zero point of the famous Route 66.
The Arts District in the beautiful city of Portland is a central neighborhood where every shop window is decorated in detail, and every corner announces an event or a show that will be held in the coming days (always updated). And in summer there is always a painter who exhibits his works in a cloth outdoors, while a guitarist sings the songs of Bob Dylan. The shops always advise responsible consumption, and create items from recycled material or items which are recyclable. In this area there are restaurants and bars such as Alternative Space Gallery's that I talked about yesterday, or the Blue Note. The most practical thing to do is to go with notepad and pen down what you are interested in. I, going down Congress Street, met a group of break dance and rapper, all very young and very talented. Well, will you meet them!
