6000 skyscrapers mould New York’s skyline and a further 400 are already being planned. The highest building in the city is the “One World Trade Center”, which opened in the year 2015, at 541.3 metres. The Central Park, covering an area of 341 hectares, is one of the largest parks anywhere in the world.
The metropolis is defined by its internationality and the multitude of cultures that come together there. This is particularly reflected in New York's gastronomic scene and the many different languages spoken there. On the Subway or while walking along the avenues and boulevards, you can hear up to 800 languages.
With musicals such as "The Phantom of the Opera" and its museums, such as the world-famous MoMa, the Big Apple is also an absolute mecca for art and culture lovers.
