New York City

New York City

One of the best things you can do in New York City is to walk lost in the geometric intrigue of the Manhattan Island’s streets. The shape and the image of city changes continuously maintaining at the same time the soul of integration and agglomeration of spaces, buildings and culture. You could spent more than a whole day to walk from the south to reach the opposite end of the island such thing to look at you may find.

Starting from Wall Street with its shiny, square buildings center of financial power, a district without any particular angle to see except for some shops of the area around The South Street Seaport or the gardens of Battery Park from where ferries leave for the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Going up to the friendly streets of Soho, NohoTribeca, Chinatown and Little Italy the shops to visit are countless, maybe between some coffee consumed in one of the small and ubiquitous bistro. This part of the city is highly recommended also after the sunset to have dinner in or, why not, to find someone interesting to talk with in one of clubs of the East Village.

Going north is the time of Midtown, Hell’s Kitchen and Chelsea with all the views watched in some of the most famous films ever made. Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden, Times Square, Radio City Hall and the legendary Broadway are only some of the major attractions that could be visited within a few minutes walking maybe passing through the legendary shopping temple of the 5th Ave. Is Central Park where for the first time you can put attention to the new Yorker’s houses, with the high-end residential neighborhoods of East and West side. The culture finds here some of the greatest collections of art of all time including the Metropolitan Museum, the Guggenheim, The Natural History, the Whitney Art Museums. Leaving behind the green and charming park begin the mid-class neighborhoods of Harlem with their lower skyscrapers and tenements until the banks of the river that separates the Manhattan island from the famous Bronx.

The Tollund man is a so called bog body, this is special thanks to it very good preservation. The 2m layer of sphagnum bogs with its acids and absence of oxygen left the skin, hairs and face expression as they were at the moment of the death.
