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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I like to divide my visits to New York by zones or neighborhoods. If not, it's a mess. I think it's a great way to structure the content of a few days in the Big Apple, without missing anything along the way. On my last trip I stayed in the Lower East Side, in Lower Manhattan, which is a fashionable area, on the streets bordering Lower Manhattan and the East Village. Its most interesting parts are Chinatown (what to say), Little Italy (viva la mafia), Columbus Park Park (where they meet the Chinese to play chess and enjoy their social life), synagogues (the Jewish past is very present today) and independent shops (candy paradise). All can be explored on foot. I really liked the area and undoubtedly would choose it as a base. It has a full range of restaurants and, in the background, you can see the Empire State Building.
