I just love New York, but I have never been to what I consider the best city to be in. Just for fun, imagine that I am a friend you have met over the net, and I am going to visit you in New York. I know that I need to explore the place but since I have a friend, it would make it even more fun. Please give me the places where you will take me on a tour to New York City and tell me why. Thanks so much for giving me the tour of my life!!

That would depend on you and what you like; New York have scores of things to do in it; But in general, I think I would take you to Ground Zero so you can see what 9/11 has done and the effect it had on the people of N.Y; then I would take you to see the Empire State Building which at one time was the tallest building in the world; while there, you'll see 33rd St and Macy's where they have the Thanksgiving Parade each year; then up a bit to Times Square where you can see a lot of bustle; But one thing I would be amiss to not take you to is the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx; That is one pretty place and a place that I spent some great times at. right across from the Bronx Zoo. but those are the places. I mentioned a couple in between, but there you have it. I have a brother that does tours up there. if your interested, let me know.

Thanks for your reply. I really appreciate it. I would love to visit each place that you mentioned here: Ground Zero, Empire State Building, 33rd Street and Macy's, Times Square, New York Botanical Gardens. There are three places that top my list to visit in the near future: Tokyo, London and New York. I am so in love with New York. I would definitely love to see Ground Zero and the aftermath of the 9/11 incident. At that time it happened, I was preparing for work here in Manila when my friend texted me out of the blue and says, "Ana,please pray". And before I knew it, the news flashed on TV about it. Though it happened a few years ago, I can't help but sometimes think about it. I would love to see the Thanksgiving Parade. That would be a wonderful treat. THANK YOU!
