New York City is renowned the world over as a center of culture, commerce, and modern internationalism. It is also well known for its diplomatic importance, as it plays host to the United Nations. The city itself hosts a wide range of cultural experiences, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Broadway Theater, and a wide range of sporting venues. The wider state contains the famous Niagara Falls, as well as part of the Appalachian Trail, an enormously long hiking trail that spans the north-eastern United States. It is an excellent place to rent a country cottage. Visitors can escape the hustle and bustle of a hectic urban lifestyle, and recharge and replenish by reconnecting with the incredible nature that the state has to offer.
