Statue of Liberty

Statue/Sculpture
Set on Liberty Island in New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty is arguably the symbol of New York City. Originally a gift from France to commemorate the centenary of US independence, it stood as a beacon welcoming generations of immigrants into the United States when nearby Ellis Island was the nation's primary port of entry. Reproduced countless times around the world in struggles for liberty and justice, the Statue of Liberty is a potent reminder of the power of ideas and the foundational myths in US history. Visitors can tour Liberty Island and ascend into the statue provided it is not closed for security or repair. Many people enjoy the free trip on the Staten Island Ferry, which passes near Liberty Island and allows one to imagine what it must have been like sailing into New York Harbor for the first time.

Towering over Manhattan's skyscrapers, the Empire State Building is a landmark in New York and has been featured in many films and TV shows. The observation deck on the top floor, accessible by high-speed elevators, offers a panoramic view of New York's cityscape, taking in views of both the Hudson River and the East River. The view is even more magnificent at sunset and particularly charming inundated in lights at nightfall.

JOJO’s wonderful trip   
From the glory of the World Trade Center we reached Wall Street. This is the indicator of the world’s stock and finance market. The richest and corporation owners of the world look upon this place as their mecca. They gather here harboring dreams of huge riches. No matter where you are, mention the word “Wall Street” and everyone will know what you are talking about. However, as you stand in the middle of the road and you look around you, you’ll see that on the surface it does not look as bustling as it seems. The streets are relatively calm, and once in a while you’ll see people walking in and out of the Trading Building. It does not have all the bustling activities in a city, nor the grandeur of New York. In comparison to the glorious trade center and the Empire State Building that is still standing, this street looks like a run down alleyway.
Not only does it not look great, the street is narrow and short. From Broadway to East River one counts only 7 blocks in terms of distance, and the width is only 11 m. However, here you will find people and forces who can move the world’s finances. From Morgan Stanley’s head honchos, the gasoline kings at Rockefeller, to management offices of banks, insurance, logistics and freight companies run by DuPont Consortium, they’re all concentrated here. The famous New York Stock Exchange can also be found here, and it is still the headquarters of several main stock exchanges, such as Nasdaq, American Stock Exchange, New York Futures Exchange, etc. “Wall Street” itself has already extended beyond this mere street and now refers to the entire nearby area. It also refers to the whole financial market or any financial organizations which have influence over the United States' overall economy.

On April 15, 2019, the world was stunned to learn fire had ravaged Notre-Dame Cathedral in the heart of Paris. In a matter of hours, centuries of history that had survived revolution, two world wars, and natural disasters was swept from existence. It is with heavy heart we mourn the loss of these cultural treasures.
