Nobu

Restaurant | "Nobu, New York"

Quote:
After seeing many photographs of Hollywood stars going to Nobu in New York, I wanted to go there. On my first night there I had a reservation with my two best friends.GeneralNobu is located at 105 Hudson Street in Tribeca. Tribeca is a famous neighborhood in New York where many artists live and where especially at night is a lot to do. This used to be an industrial area, so there are a lot of huge warehouses. It is admittedly on a street corner, but from the outside you would not really say that there is a restaurant behind it. It is a very dark, small sign where the name on it and it's not exactly clear.

Hotel | "W Times Square"

Quote:
W Times SquareAs the name implies, the hotel lies close to Times Square. This is probably the best known and busiest "Square" in New York. You can find all the shops, metro lines, hotel chains and a lot of restaurants. Everything is open day and night so you always have something to do nearby.Located at Broadway and 47th Street, which is about 5 blocks walk from the "real" Times Square (42nd Street). This is easy in less than ten minutes to do and the shops of Times Square fall to around 50th street, so they are simply at the doorstep. The W Hotels are also fairly well known because it belongs to the Starwood group (also including the Sheraton and St. Regis hotels). ...Read More

My friend and I had some hours to spend in New York before we were taken to the airport. We walked past Madame Tussaud's and then decided to go in there.GeneralIt’s a wax museum with statues of celebrities. Madame Tussaud's is located in downtown New York's Times Square and near the famous Port Authority bus station. The exact address is 234 West 42nd Street, but you can not miss it, we saw already two blocks away.The easiest way to get there is by subway or bus or at the Times Square stop or at Port Authority. From there you need about a half block walk to get to this museum.How much does it cost?Madame Tussaud's in New York is quite pricey. There...Read More

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the largest and one of the important art museums in the world. You can then also not been to New York without having visited this museum! It is not for nothing that the museum receives five million visitors yearly.The museum has 17 different departments in exhibitions (and even then the roof and special exhibitions). I've seen everything, but it’s so much that you sometimes don’t really have the time to enjoy it all. Arms and Armor is an exhibition where you can see different weapons. It contains more than 14,000 objects, some of which kings and princes are used (such as Henry VIII of England, Henry II of France and Ferdinand I of Germany). For...Read More
