The Statue of Liberty: It needs no introduction, but did you know that this most iconic of American landmarks was painstakingly constructed, piece by piece, in France, and shipped across the Atlantic? The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886, by President Grover Cleveland, former New York Governor, and then-president. It is estimated that nearly a million spectators watched the ceremony.

Ellis Island: This gateway to the United States shuffled millions of immigrants through its bureaucratic documentation center between 1892 and 1954. But did you know that after 1924, when the initial swells of seafaring immigrants had died down, Ellis Island became, in an ironic reversal, primarily a deportation and detention processing station?

Brooklyn Bridge: This stunning feat of structural engineering is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States, and connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn over the East River.

Empire State Building: 102 floors of pure Americana! This Manhattan icon remained a beacon of patriotism following the collapse of the World Trade Center towers in 2001. The Empire State Building is instantly-recognizable by its characteristic Art Deco architecture, and is very visible on the skyline from the waters around Manhattan.

Chrysler Building: Another Art Deco landmark that sits prestigiously at the crossroads of 42nd and Lexington. This building’s history shows something of a rivalry in the “race to the top” in the early days of skyscrapers. The Chrysler Building held the record as tallest building for nearly a year before the construction of the Empire State Building was completed.

United Nations:The headquarters of the United Nations grace this prestigious location in the Big Apple, serving as a hub of international decision-making, peacekeeping talks, and other important matters that affect international relations across the globe.
