Things to do in NYC

For those who find themselves in the New York City area and want to take in the area’s landscape and major monuments, this video is good place to start.

Chandler Hotel and New York Sightseeing

If you happen to find yourself in New York – on business or pleasure – and it is your first time in the Big Apple, there are a few must-see landmarks. One of these of course is the famous Empire State Building (ESB). In walking distance from Shimmie Horn’s Chandler Hotel, you simply have to check out the Tower Lights schedule of events as you can’t leave New York without having experienced that. Indeed, using its “iconic lightings” the ESB “celebrates many cultures and causes in the world community.”

The official Lighting Partner program of the ESB was set up in 2006. According to its website the tower lights are used to “recognize key milestones, events, charitable organizations, countries and holidays throughout the world, not political or religion related events.”

They are quite spectacular and if you happen to be at the Chandler Hotel in a couple of weeks’ time, check out the green, white and orange lights in honor of the 31st annual India Day Parade on August 19 or 20th.
