The Empire State Building is a 102-story landmark Art Deco skyscraper in New York City at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and West 34th Street. Its name is derived from the nickname for the state of New York, The Empire State. It stood as the world's tallest building for more than forty years, from its completion in 1931 until construction of the World Trade Center's North Tower was completed in 1972. Following the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001, the Empire State Building once again became the tallest building in New York City and New York State.

One of New York’s truly legendary hotels, designed by Robert T. Lyons and built by the famous developer brothers Bing and Bing, the Gramercy Park Hotel in Manhattan opened its doors in 1925. It was built on the site of flamboyant architect Stanford White’s home, where previously the townhouse that Edith Wharton was born in had stood. The hotel hosted generations of the sort of visitors who make downtown New York “downtown”.

The Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City was the headquarters for high bohemia, where artists, adventurers and bonvivants rubbed elbows. Humphrey Bogart was married here. Humorist S.J.Perelman lived here because it reminded him of his native London while being convenient to Third Avenue’s great delis. Legendary Yankee Babe Ruth liked to drink at itsfamous bar, which has retained its bohemian charm over the years, serving as a watering hole to generations of artists, writers and musicians.

An Astor family feud contributed to the events which led to the construction of the original Waldorf-Astoria on Fifth Avenue.

It started as two hotels: one owned by William Waldorf Astor, whose 13-story Waldorf Hotel was opened in 1893 and the other owned by his cousin, John Jacob Astor IV, called the Astoria Hotel and opened four years later in 1897, four stories higher.

According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2010 is the Year of a Golden Tiger, which begins on February 14, 2010 and ends on February 2, 2011. The first day of the lunar New Year 2010 falls on the 14th day of February, which is Saint Valentine's Day, so it is a day the West celebrates as a lovers' day, a day of romance. To the Chinese, it is the start of the Golden Tiger Year. The Tiger is the third sign in the cycle of Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 animal signs. It is a sign of courage. This fearless and fiery fighter is revered by the ancient Chinese as the sign that wards off the three main disasters of a household: fire, thieves and ghosts.
