Known throughout the world for its influence on music, film, fashion, art, finance, education and, as the home of the United Nations, its importance in politics and diplomacy, the magnificent city of New York truly is a global city. Due to all its many influences, as well as its seemingly endless list of sights and attractions, New York is one of the world’s most visited cities and one of the most popular destinations for completing a tefl/tesol training course.
Although the first European settlement in the area goes back around 400 years, it wasn’t until the mid 19th century that New York City really started to boom. Driven by large numbers of immigrants that flooded in looking to escape famine in ireland and social unrest in mainland Europe, the population continued to grow into one of the largest and most ethnically diverse cities in the world. To this day New York City is still growing in diversity, with over a third of its population born outside of the usa and as many as 800 different languages spoken by its residents. Due to this wide ranging mix of cultures and traditions, it is no wonder that the city is so popular with visitors from all corners of the world.
The good news for any visitor to New York City is that there is an almost endless list of fascinating sights to see and interesting things to do. The city is home to some of the most recognizable architecture in the world, with Art Deco icons such as the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building just two of the most famous skyscrapers. Other sights and experiences you won’t want to miss include the Statue of Liberty, the hustle and bustle of Times Square and the calm of Central Park with its wide variety of attractions. Lovers of shopping are also well catered for as New York has become synonymous with all levels of retail, from high-end fashion houses to discount stores and street sellers. The performing arts are also well represented with hundreds of theaters and music venues spread around the city dedicated to every form of music, dance or drama you can imagine, including the 40 theaters that make up the world famous Broadway Theater District.
