Wherever you are in New York, the first thing you see is some of the city's most iconic skyscrapers.

Each building represents a distinct historical and cultural period, for example, the 102-storey Empire State Building in Midtown Manhattan is a symbolic Art Deco style building which can clearly be seen from your meeting rooms in Hotel Chandler - New York, or the Hilton Garden Inn New York Midtown Park Ave. Another iconic building represents the Art Deco is the Chrysler Building on the east side of Manhattan near the Grand Hyatt New York and Langham Place, Fifth Avenue. Due to the fact that there are already too many high-storey building in the city, NYC has imposed a specifically strict and expensice Zoning Law to restrict the construction of new buildings. However, NYC achitectures have found new way to circumvent the laws by inventing new peculiar buildings. On March 2017, the construction plan to the "Big Bend" building has been unveiled, making it the longest building in the world once built. The building is going to transform Midtown Mahattan and NYC skyline.

A train ticket is relatively cheap, and the transfers are quick, you can basically go to any place in the city. The Metro-North and Long Island Railroad train can get you right into the heart of the city. Buses are other options, although they are dirty and inefficiency to move around in rush hours.
