When it comes to the art of seduction, New York has two cards up its sleeve: charm and spontaneity. People often fall in love with what they came looking for -- the Empire State Building, lit up in red, white, and blue; Central Park under a blanket of snow, its trees sparkling as if encased in crystal; or the Statue of Liberty, which neither clich nor cheap souvenir can render common. For those who grew up with glossy magazine and soft-focus film images of New York, standing in front of one of its landmarks is still a moment of discovery. The remarkable thing is that New York looks even better up-close, in person. "It's just like the movies!" is a constant delighted refrain. -- "Fodors"
