One of NYC's most popular neighborhoods, Greenwich Village (The Village) is a world renowned symbol for everything creative, rebellious and bohemian. Its reputation traces back to the 1900's when artists and writers moved in, followed by jazz musicians who played at the famous Blue Note and Village Vanguard. Legendary artists like Jimi Hendrix lived here and the Rolling Stones recorded here too. Although today no starving artists could afford to live here, the vibe still lingers on its historic sites, curious shops, cafes, bars, and at Washington Square Park, the most crowded recreational space in the world. Streets here run at all angles so hang on to that map.
The most enduring symbol of New York City and the USA, The Statue of Liberty, has been standing 151 feet tall since 1886. This statuesque lady was designated a National Monument in 1924 and received an extreme makeover in 1986, restoring her original beauty and youthfulness for her sweet centennial. Get there via a 15-minute ferry ride departing from New Jersey's Liberty Park and from lower Manhattan's Castle Clinton in Battery Park. Security is tight so leave your back packs and travel light. Admission starts at $4.00 for children 4 to 12. Open daily except December 25 from 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Phone: (212) 269-5755
