New York is pure energy. It has been the backdrop for many movies with its bright lights and bustling streets, like those found in luminous Times Square. Upon arrival, visitors to the city are greeted by one of the nation's grandest symbols of freedom, the Statue of Liberty. Like Lady Liberty, everything about New York is larger than life. The Empire State Building is the third-tallest building in the nation, and the 19-building expanse of Rockefeller Center includes Radio City Music Hall and houses the offices of major industries and television studios. Although New York's contributions to theater are undeniable, catching a Broadway show is a far cry from your only entertainment option. New York is also the home of world-renowned music venue Carnegie Hall. Multiple sports teams also call New York home.
