Statue of Liberty
The Big Apple or New York’s main attraction was opened on 28 October 1886.This statue was the gift from the people of France, to the United States. The statue was designed by sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi (1834-1904). In France, Bartholdi consulted with Aleixandre Gustave Eiffel (1832-1923), a designer of the Eiffel tower. The statue arrived from France in 350 individual pieces, packed in 214 crates, and took 4 month to re-assemble. The crown of the statue of liberty has 25 windows to symbolize gems of the earth, and 7 rays to represent the 7 seas and continents of the world. The tablet in her hand reads, in roman numerals 4 July 1776.
Central park - mighty rectangle of green, is the soothing bucolic heart of manhattan's concrete jungle. Filling 843 acres, and stretching from 59th street to 60th street, central park evolved during the late 19th century as the visionary plans of Frederick Olmsted and Calvert Vaux- intended to turn a collection of pig farms and squatters camps into “specimen of god's handiwork” took shape. Creating glades ,copses , and rock outcrops the landscaping also involved the planting of more than 4 million trees and the digging of the sunken roads that render traffic crossing the park invisible. The park continues to mirror the full range of New York life. Whether jogging, rollerblading, strolling, or walking the dog, this is the happening ground.
