  1. I chose the Oculus at the World Trade Center as my tourist sight for this assignment. The reason why I chose it is because of what it represents to the culture of New York. It is not only a great tourist attraction due to its beautiful structure, shopping center and events and activities that are always happening at the main concourse but, also, because of its enormous transportation hub for commuters coming and going from New York and New Jersey everyday and how it makes them scape the commute stress if only for a few minutes when they stop to look around the grand, white structure. It is a transportation hub to about 250,000 daily commuters and a tourist attraction to millions of tourists according to the Port Authority website. In addition, the Oculus at the World Trade Center is a symbol of hope, strength, peace and perseverance for every New Yorker who still mourns the horrible 9/11 attacks.

  2. I chose the Hard Rock Cafe as my tourist attraction because it is located in the center of New York, Times Square. Time Square is a big tourist oriented area. This restaurant is complimented with great lights on the outside along with the rock and roll theme which lures in customers. The Hard Rock Cafe is known for its rock and roll theme and its wide range of music memorabilia from the best of musical legends. It’s setting and dining experience is very enjoyable. You are able to eat and listen to great music from all decades. While even waiting for your food you are able to walk around the restaurant to take in all the memorabilia and the wonderful decor.

    As a New York native, there are so many exciting and different sites to see as well as
    activities to engage in ,any tourist are intrigued by the big lights, music and festivities in the city, I chose the Modern Museum of Art (MoMA). The Modern Museum of Art is filled with history, a diversity of artist and great art pieces and most importantly amenities for all people. I was able to witness the wonderful hospitality the MoMA had to offer not only to needs but the thousands of visitors that come there, also the restaurant were outstanding.

  4. The attraction site that I’ve chosen was Chinatown. Chinatown is located in the lower part of Manhattan. Any consider lower Manhattan, the melting pot of New York because of all the ethics culture that you can find. It very amazing how you can just walk out Chinatown and be in Little Italy. Chinatown was established in the the 1860, by the high import of Asain immigrate. As the population start to grow more and more, the newspaper gave it name of Chinatown.

  7. As a tourist in New York City, the main attractions you will visit is the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, the Empire State Building and the 911 Memorial. After a long day of exploring the city and its attractions, settle down and dine at a famously known restaurant. The Sugar Factory American Brasserie located at 835 Washington Street in the Meatpacking District, offers a comfortable place to enjoy the evening. Food, unlike anything else, makes the trip more memorable and enjoyable. Food has a more long, lasting impression on tourist as well as the service they witnessed at the establishment.
