No place in America offers more to see just walking through the streets than New York City.
There are endless educational opportunities for teachers looking to expand the classroom on a tour to New York City. Those include Broadway and the theater district, some of the most popular museums in the world, Wall Street and the financial district, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, just to mention a few.
But unlike anywhere else, just walking the streets of Manhattan offers a world-class architectural experience. The city is home to many iconic buildings. One of the most famous is the original Flatiron Building. This unique triangular 22-story building has namesakes in many cities around the nation but the original in New York City is unparalleled for historical value.
New York City has many other famous buildings. That list begins with The Empire State Building, one of the most visited in the world. Others of note include:
- Chrysler Building
- Grand Central Terminal (often referred to as Station)
- Waldorf-Astoria Hotel
- Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
- Radio City Music Hall
- The Plaza Hotel
- New York City Library
The new One World Trade Center, next to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, is the latest addition to our county’s most famous skyline. The list of buildings to see goes on and on as do the opportunities for educational tours to New York City. Most of the famous buildings offer tours of their own rich in architectural, historical and cultural value. But just viewing the buildings on a walking or bus tour of the city is an enlightening and enriching experience for students.
