Hayfa Aljishi takes a bite out of the
Big Apple
New York, New York, the city that never sleeps, mecca of culture and fine arts... it  seem like more of a holiday destination for adults. However, the  sights, sounds, and tastes of the Big Apple were fun and educational for her cooler-than-thou teenagers.

Here are just a few photos of places, people and things that made the most of her one month vacation without biting off more than the whole family can chew.
No one can miss the 8-foot bronze sculpture "The Garment Worker" by Judith Weller located at 555 Seventh Avenue (known as Fashion Avenue) between 39th and 40th Streets in midtown Manhattan.
The Met summer exhibition of Picasso's works comprised of paintings, drawings and sculptures and ceramics, representing every period of Picasso's long career. Also included is the famous 1906 portrait of Gertrude Stein.
Top of the Rock Observation Deck is the city's top sightseeing attraction! Located in midtown Manhattan at historic Rockefeller Center offers spectacular views of the city.

A visit to the studio and garden of Iraniian/American artist Reza Karimi.
Walking tour from Broadway, through Times Square, Bryant Park etc. Times Square is full of restaurants and shops (mostly national chains) and attractions, such as Madame Tussaud’s New York wax museum and Ripley’s Believe it or Not.
With hundreds of art galleries from Chelsea to Upper Manhattan, this gallery was showing works by Arab artists.
At the  Museum of Natural History the special exhibitions and the permanent collections are both enjoyable.
From the Rose Planetarium to the dinosaurs there is something for everyone. Kids pose with the dinosaur skeletion and Easter Island Moai better know as “gum-gum” on the movie Night at the Museum.
No holiday in NY would be complete without a trip to Central Park - the centerpiece of the compelling jumble of architectural styles. From 110 street down to 59 street, bordered by West and Fifth Avenue on the Upper East Side, jog or walk along the cobblestones into the charming Central Park Zoo and the Frederick Law Olmstead’s landscaped gardens.
Of course, the Plaza Hotel by Central Park and 5th Avenue is one of the great places to stay.
View of Manhattan on the way to the Lady Liberty.
Alberto Giacometti at the MOMA.
No photography allowed inside the Guggenheim.
