Radio City Music hall is a New York landmark. People travel all around the globe to witness the prestige and elegance that is associated with this magnificent place. Especially around the winter time, the iconic Rockettes put on a breath-taking show that I would love to witness in person. Since it’s opening year in 1932 Radio City Music Hall has become a precious jewel here in NYC.

Cultural Tourism

Cultural Tourism

 

Cultural Tourism is a form a tourism where the traveler interacts with the foreign country’s culture how that culture helped shaped all that is present. For a traveler to get a true experience, prior knowledge of the location is key. With this information the traveler will be able to better understand the direction in which the region is going by looking at it’s past.

The Brooklyn Bridge park  is a prime example of cultural tourism. The most noticeable would be the Brooklyn Bridge itself. Completed on January 3, 1870 the park is a landmark all on its own. Thousands of cars cross this bridge and tens of thousands of people walk it each day. The bridge is a great place for a traveler to start considering the bridges background and the fact that it was man made.

Another great location/locations would be the warehouses. What were once grueling factories are now business, pop-up shops, and even just a place to relax. The factories contributed an enormous amount during their production. Not all was great and these big red brick building hide the true essence of what is New York.

The trip down to the Brooklyn Bridge park (even though some of us were attacked by local pigeons) was great. I have personally only been there on the weekends and it gets crowded, so it was nice to see it so vacant. New York is so diverse and it is amazing, it is like a one stop shop for culture. All around the 5 boroughs, festivities celebrating a cultural holiday go on year-round, you just have to know where to look. There are sights that as New Yorkers slip our mind or that we ignore, It is nice to see your city for the great wonders it creates and how it is always expanding.

Hello, my name is Jubedel Andon, I arrived to City Tech with the aspiration to become a chef. I am currently working as a server in an American Diner and I have been working here for approximately three years and have obtained experience in this fast-pace industry. With this experience, I have gained the knowledge and skills to manage a restaurant or oversee a kitchen. Therefore, I enrolled in the Hospitality management program because I am seeking to focus on the culinary and pastry side of the industry. I have a good memory from working at a diner for several years and I love the pressure given in this industry and for these reasons I believe I can strive. In the future I plan to a handful of experience under my belt. I want to get as involved as I can and I am very grateful to be in the Hospitality Management here at City Tech. From word of mouth I was informed that there has been many over achievers from the Hospitality department and I hope to partake in the Hospitality departments success.
