Culture

Who has never heard of Broadway? Known for its 40 theaters, this avenue overflows with culture. Here is where you’ll see musical performances that have perpetuated throughout history. Also in the art area, pay a visit to the Guggenheim Museum, it is a must, such as open air concerts in Central Park.

The City of New York and culture live hand in hand. One might almost say that one can not live without the other. Madison Square Garden is a den of deluxe performances, with all the stars in the world music that have performed there. But New Yorkers breathe music and often do it outdoors in Central Park. That is where, for example, Simon & Garfunkel gave a live concert for more than 500 000 people and it is also in Central Park that you will find a memorial dedicated to John Lennon (Strawberry Fields), who lived with Yoko close by, in the Dakota building. From musicals to concerts the trip is very short. In this field Broadway has gained prominence. This avenue is known for its theatrical and musical mega productions like the musical Oklahoma, Les Miserables, Cats, West Side Story, The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady and Jesus Christ Superstar. Concerning museums, the offer is also huge. Besides the renowned Solomon R. Guggenheim you may also wish to visit the charismatic MoMA - Museum of Modern Art - and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
