Statue Of Liberty & Downtown NYC

(Travel Period : 28th June - 5th July 2009)

Statue Of Liberty - located at Liberty Island in New York Harbor, enlightening the world was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of United States and its a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. Tickets are needed in order to be able to travel to the island by ferry. You can either take ferry from New Jersey or Battery Park at downtown Manhattan, we took "Miss Jersey" from New Jersey Liberty National Park. The ferry will stop by Ellis Island before Liberty Island. Crown is now open for public - again my regret for not going up the crown.
Manhattan from Liberty Island.
Lower Manhattan or better known as Downtown Manhattan located at the southernmost part of Manhattan Island, New York City - the main district of business and government center. It is defined most commonly as the area delineated on the north by 14th street, on the west by Hudson river.
World Trade Center - WAS a complex in Lower Manhattan in New York City whose 7 buildings were destroyed in 2001-911. The site is now being rebuilt. This is what left - WTC PATH station. We both stay in New Jersey City, so walking through this station is like everyday-must.
New York City’s Chinatown - the largest Chinatown in the United States—and the site of the largest concentration of Chinese in the western hemisphere—is located on the lower east side of Manhattan. Both a tourist attraction and the home of the majority of Chinese New Yorkers, Chinatown offers visitor and resident alike hundreds of restaurants, booming fruit and fish markets and shops of knickknacks and sweets on torturously winding and overcrowded streets.

But personally, we dislike NYC's Chinatown, to be in comparison with London Chinatown, we prefer the latter one. As tourist like me, I find it too complicated, huge and crowded plus dirty. However, I bet the Chinese New Yorkers and local can deal with this place real well.
Little Italy NYC - is just located at the next street of New York City's Chinatown., just like Chinatown, you can find varieties of Italian products and restaurants. And we love this place XD
My next post up will be Brooklyn Bridge & Central Park NYC.
