WHAT YOU’LL SEE
THE MUST DOs AND GOTTA SEEs.
Central Park was the first planned park in the United States, built in 1858. The build employed 20,000 men…. their first task? Blast through 883 acres worth of schist rock—only the second hardest rock in the world behind diamonds.
Columbus Circle was included in the original blueprints of Central Park, though this used to just be farmland. The goal was to imitate those big circular plazas seen in London and Paris at the time. The whole thing was completed in 1905 and was part of the original plans of Central Park.
In 1890, Carnegie Hall was built by a philanthropist named, you guessed it, Andrew Carnegie. You’d be surprised to hear he didn’t want it to be called that originally, and had to be convinced to change it from its initial name Music Hall.
The first New Years Eve celebration here was put on by the New York Times for its office opening in 1904. This was the biggest party this city had ever seen with about 200,000 people in attendance. The square got its name, Times, and the city got a new tradition.
During the summer, the park is a huge grass lawn where people tan, hangout, and watch movies. The park has a massive projector screen where they play movies. As fall comes, the park is rebuilt into a winter wonderland. It has a big market with local food vendors, artisans, and an ice skating rink.
New York Public Library
The New York Public Library is an icon of New York life. John Jacob Astor and Samuel Tilden (left his fortune for a public library) got together with James Lenox (had the biggest book collection at the time) to build the NYPL.
Built in 1902, the Flatiron Building was designed specifically to fill the space between 5th Avenue & Broadway. It was constructed around the same time that the center of the city was moving uptown towards Times Square. Some New Yorkers imagined that its shape resembles a ship’s bow as it sails towards Times Square.
You can see the Metlife building, once upon a time the Pan Am building (1960), which was at the time the largest office building in the world. By placing the building towering right over Grand Central Terminal, they were making a big statement.
The Plaza Hotel was built in 1906, it was considered the greatest hotel in the world and is still one of the most luxurious hotels in the world and is recognized as a Historic Hotel of America.
