New York Reviews
New York (The Big Apple) Nov 13, 2009
This stop is New York, “Big Apple”, home of the Yankees and the world‘s most popular city. This was always a destination of choice for me up until I actually visited it and felt like I was in a prison without walls. The sky scraper buildings, huge crowds, the hurry to do things etc. To differentiate the state from New York City, it is referred to as New York State: It is located in the mid Atlantic region and is the third most populous state, the capital New York City is also the gateway for immigration in to the United States. The history of the state dates back to the native Indians, way before European settlers came in.
