Broadway Theatre,NYC

One of the most read places in the itineraries of vacationers visiting the New York City is also the world’s most illustrious stop for commercial drama theater, called The New York Broadway Theater, or simply The Broadway. It is one of the 40 large professional theatres in the Theatre District in Manhattan, New York City. Be it on the scale of drama, imagination or even sales of tickets, Broadway could only be compared to London’s West End Theater (in English speaking categories).

Every year Broadway audiences are attracted towards the revivals of Broadway shows performed in the past, with actors from movies and television used to replace actors from the original cast from the past, drawing major audience attraction. There are still, performers who are primarily stage actors, spending most of their time "on the boards", and appearing in television and in screen roles only secondarily. Broadway also makes one of the most important assets of travel industry in the city of New York. In the season 2009-10, Broadway sold tickets above 1 billion dollars making its sales one of the highest sales ever. The TKTS booths sell same-day tickets (and in certain cases next-day matinee tickets) for many Broadway and Off-Broadway shows at a discount of 25%, 35%, or 50%. (The TKTS booths are located in Duffy Square, which is in Times Square, in Lower Manhattan.)

This season as well, the Broadway shows are expecting to entice a major audience, with shows like The Adam’s Family, The Lion King, The Fela!, La Cage aux Folles, In The Heights etc. being mentored by world renowned, experienced directors. Broadway productions and artists are honored every year at the Annual Antoinette Perry Awards (Tony Awards). The Tony awards are awarded by the American Theatre Wing and The Broadway League every year in the month of June, The Tony being Broadway's most prestigious award, even compared to the Academy Awards for Hollywood productions.

So while you take a trip in New York City, make sure that you watch some Broadway show with your family. The closest place where one could get cheap accommodations or a luxury apartment for a short stay lies on the 3rd street of New York City called the East Village Apartments. With apartments called Garden apartment, Penthouse apartment and Apartment Royale, one is delighted with the thought of never leaving the apartment at all. Make sure you plan your show and accommodation in advance to make the most of your trip.

Museum of Modern Art, Midtown Manhattan, New York

In the legendary literature based philosophical work called “The Romantic Manifesto” of Ayn Rand, the mother of corporate and artistic objectivity in not just in New York, but also in every progressing nation, community or individual, she clearly cites, “The position of art in the scale of human knowledge is, perhaps the most eloquent symptom of the gulf between man’s progress in the physical sciences and his stagnation in the humanities.” The museum of modern art makes one such position gathering the works of immense intellectual heights of human creativity and growth.

Opened for general public on November 7, 1929, by Abby Rockefeller (wife of John D Rockefeller Jr.) and friends, The Museum of Modern Art is the one single prominent compilation of famous modern art in the world consisting of works like:

• Les Demoiselles d'Avignon by Pablo Picasso

• The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh

• Broadway Boogie Woogie by Piet Mondrian

• The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali

• The Sleeping Gypsy by Henri Rousseau

• The Dream by Henri Rousseau

• Campbell's Soup Cans by Andy Warhol

Museum of Modern Art also owns an extensive collection 300,000 books, artist books, and periodicals, as well as individual files on more than 70,000 artists, approximately 22,000 films and 4 million film stills, a vast collection that makes the museum one major source for materials related to the history of modern and contemporary art. The museum also has an inbuilt award-winning fine dining restaurant as well called ‘The Modern’. It is run by the famous Alsace-born chef Gabriel Kreuther.

Located on 53rd Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues in Midtown Manhattan, the museum is extremely close to East Village Apartments in Manhattan providing a budgeted luxury accommodation for you and your family at an extremely reasonable price for a short comfortable vacation. The place sure does teach you how to live with colors and endless possibilities of imagination!

Tompkins Square Park

It’s very true that most of us who have eyes to appreciate nature also like the varied cultures and folklores of places. One such place with such a dramatic blend is in the ever-growing city of New York. It’s called The Tompkins Square Park. Opened in 1834, the square shaped park is spread over a massive 10.5 acre space in the Alphabet City of East Village neighborhood in the borough of Manhattan in NYC, TSP is located on a land near the East River, originally consisted of salt marsh and open tidal meadows.

The park is mostly visited in evenings by families for its lush green playgrounds and inbuilt chess tables and by students from the New York University for its basketball courts and handball courts and even tourists and senior citizens from all across the world for its events. The major events that takes place in the park include the famous Outdoor Drag festival Wigstock, held in the park, is now also a part of the Howl Festival. The Food Not Bombs Manhattan chapter serves every Sunday in the park, no matter what. The Charlie Parker Jazz Festival is a musical tribute to the famous former residents of Avenue B.

The most distinguishing feature of the park is its generous growth of venerable American Elm (Ulmus americana) trees. A large amount of tourists visit the park because of a particular elm tree, located next to the semi-circular arrangement of benches in the park's center. It attracts major groups because of its history known to the adherents of the Hare Krishna religion. It was beneath this very tree, on October 9, 1966, that A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, founder of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKON), held the first recorded outdoor chanting session of the Hare Krishna mantra outside of the Indian subcontinent; participants in the ceremony included names like Allen Ginsberg and is seen as the founding of the Hare Krishna religion in the United States.

So if you are planning to visit the Manhattan area of the city, Tompkins Square Park is a must visit. Also, Vacation apartment and flats are available at a walking distance from the park in the name of East Village Apartment, providing you with an ease of access like that of a king.
