New York!
by Andrew J. Goodman
NEW YORK: The very words conjure up
a variety of images-exciting nightlife,
financial wheeling and dealing, Broad-
way, restaurants, and excitement.
Indeed, admittedly to a New York
provincialist, the city is the most
exciting at least in the United States,
and perhaps the world. New York is the
melting pot of numerous ethnic heri-
tages. It is the entertainment capi-
tal, boasting the best in theatre, con-
certs, sporting events, clubs and disco-
theques.
City Stargazing
As for theatre, there is little in the world
to match Broadway, with its glittering
lights, innumerable theatres and gal-
axy of stars. For concerts, Lincoln
Center shines: the home of the New
York Philharmonic, the New York State
Theatre, the Metropolitan Opera and
some of the finest ballet in the world.
In sports you either love or hate the
Yankees, but they are at the very least
entertaining. In baseball there is also
the Mets; in football both the Giants
and Jets; in basketball the Knicks and
Nets; and in hockey the Rangers, Is-
landers and newly-born Jersey Devils.
And when many other cities in the
world are shutting down for the eve-
ning many places in New York are just
beginning to warm up for a night time
of frivolity. Clubs, such as Catch A
Rising Star have been the starting point
for many of today's top name enter-
tainers and present nightly many who
hope to be tomorrow's stars. Disco-
theques such as New York, New York
and innumerable others don't really
begin rocking until midnight or later.

RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL ENTERTAINMENT CENTER. Called the showplace of the nation,
Radio Cily Music Hall Entertainment center is a must-see for every visitor to The Big Apple. Located
in the Rockefeller Center complex, on the Avenue of the Americas at 50th Street, the Music Hall has
a seating capacity of 6,000.                   Photo by New York Convention and Visitors Bureau

Cosmopolitan Mecca
of Excitement
In short, New York is the mecca of
sophisticated excitement and, in fact,
to our spoiled eyes, the very center of
the country.
Each area of the city is itself differ-
ent, yet cosmopolitan. Down near the
south end of Manhattan many enclaves
of ethnic life abound. Chinatown, Little
Italy, and the lower east side all portray
life as it has been for years in this city:
moving to the beat of numerous and di-
verse ethnic heritages. A little further
north in Soho and the village, the art

of the avant-garde is nowhere more
prevalent.
Moving further uptown, the mid-
town area is the home of major cor-
porations and law firms, providing a
unique concentration of financial and
business activity. Moving yet further
north, the city is divided into east and
west by Central Park. A westsider will
rarely cross the park to visit the east
side and an eastsider has the same re-
luctance about crossing over to visit
the west side. Each of these two areas
has its own distinct personality vastly
