GeoFresher - Manhattan Travel
Thus began my journey to New York. The metro was being repaired and had to go to the free bus in Lower Manhattan.

Metro in New York - he was still a maze. Once in it, from the first moment one wonders why one line called the number, and the other letters, why the line is called "1, 2, 3", not just "1", and in general, what idiot came up with this? Then you begin to understand that everything is thought out. The line referred to as "1, 2, 3," because of its trains with the numbers "1", "2" or "3", one of which is the expression and stops at the key station, and the other goes to Manhattan, and a third generally will take away you in Brooklyn.
By the way, most of the stations in New York, you can not get from one platform to trains going in opposite directions. So if you're confused subway entrance and descended to the platform, you have to walk up the street to find the entrance to the subway on the desired side of the platform and pay an entrance fee again.
Lower Manhattan, fence Trinity Church.
Inside the church
New York taxi slowly but surely capture Manhattan :) They are actually very much. It is surprising that with the huge traffic jams, they manage to maintain such popularity.
On the way to Times Square.
At Times Square is always crowded. In fact, part of the crowd is artificial: these people the right of the ladder stand in line for discounts to Broadway musicals. A discount may reach 50% here. Given that the ticket price starts from $ 100 for the cheapest place and ends at around $ 240 for the most expensive - the discount for many very helpful.
And here is the famous Memphis ...
... and no less famous Naked Cowboy
New York - a place of amazing mix of old architecture and modern office buildings and skyscrapers.
On the way to the Museum of Metropolitan.
This is just an exhibition of Aleksndr McQueen, which hit records of attendance.
Metropolitan Museum - a place where time stops. In addition to the classic halls of the fine arts, there is a hall of arms and knight's outfit, halls of African, Indonesian, European cultures, the medieval and antique halls, so to speak, in the Egyptian department is a real ancient temple. A separate exhibition is even on the roof of the museum. So that the input is necessary to take a free card, because without it will not be difficult to get lost.
The same Egyptian temple Dendur. This very ancient.
Museum of Natural History. It is here that the event movie "Night at the Museum." In fact, in all the prosaic :) The most interesting halls - hall of dinosaurs and Astronomical hall, which a lot of interesting and interactive tours, and in addition, the floor mounted a dozen weights, where you can find out your weight on one or another planet in the solar system , Halley's comet, neutron stars, the sun, and so on. d.
Famous worldwide Bull on Wall Street is actually worth on Broadway :) Although Wall Street just a stone's throw away.
And here is Wall Street. A place where no exaggeration to decide the fate of the world economy.
If you have the time, from the South Ferry station in the south of Manhattan, you can free ride to Staten Island and back. Beautiful and impressive.
On the way to the Brooklyn Bridge.
Ethnic shop called Western Spirit on Broadway. It is something that is nothing more to add. Native American and cowboy products: hats, belts, boots, saddles, jewelry, clothing and so on. Eyes run so that put them together - a big problem.
Absolute classic - the rise of the Empire State Building. The same rise and you can make a building Rockefeller, then you will see the Empire State, the tallest building in New York City, from the outside. Now Ground Zero - the place where once stood the twin towers, building a new skyscraper on the 104 floors, which will be the tallest building in America. It's going to finish by 2013.
Inside the New York Public Library. Despite the fact that this is a library, it is more like a museum. Or Hogwarts, someone like that anymore.

IMAX-theater Loews. Finally, in the third example of the Transformers, I saw that it represents the IMAX technology-:)
If you want to chat with a psychic, he is waiting for you here.
Café on the Upper East Side. One of the most popular neighborhoods of Manhattan, a place well-known fact that here lived the heroine of "Sex and the City."
