    London, United Kingdom, Dercember 06, 2006 --(24-7 Press Release)-- Even the pope visited New York and called it "the capital of the world."

New York's shops cater to every possible taste, in any combination and in many cases at any time of the day or night. they're a great reason for visiting the city, many of the oddest and oldest stores are still around and nothing beats discovering a quirky, independent shop that may specialize only in vintage cufflinks or a one off ladies handbag.

New York's music scene reflects the city's diversity and contemporary jazz is still in abundance. If you travel uptown or to the outer boroughs, you'll find Brazilian music, West Indian music, reggae and hip-hop, but if you stay downtown, indie rock will fill your ears. Classical violin played over skrawking German beats on the subway to experiments in mixology at your local bar are also in abundance.

Despite what the designers on any avenue would like you to believe, New York is not uptight about appearance. In the most expensive glitzy clubs however, appearances do matter, acolytes must adhere to the current look, with bouncers guarding the doors against the gauche, but if you just want to dance, there are plenty of casual places, especially the city's gay clubs which often offer more creative music and less hassle.

New York is a wonderful city to visit with children, obvious attractions include museums, skyscrapers, ferry rides and the simple pleasures of walking the streets seeing the street entertainers and taking in the shopping scene. Free events are especially common in the summer that range from puppet shows and nature programs in the city's parks to storytelling hours at local libraries and bookstores.
