WE DID IT NY WAY..; Jet off to a Great Big Welcome in the Big Apple; Spirit of New York Is Simply Inspiring


NEW YORK New Year and the city that never sleeps has woken up in 2002 with as much spirit and hope as ever.

The people of this great city could have been forgiven for wallowing in their misery after the tragic events of September 11.

But that's not the way the Americans do things. They dealt with their loss, are still dealing with it - but the Big Apple is open for business big-time.

Its tourist bureau is encouraging visitors to paint the town red, white and blue and 350 hotels, restaurants, stores and Broadway shows are offering great discounts as an enticement.

Have your camera ready and face south to get the Statue of Liberty in the background. Do the visit again at night to see the spectacular lights of Manhattan.

Feeling hungry? Head Downtown for Greenwich Village, Little Italy, Chinatown and Soho. Restaurants galore with a superb variety of international dishes at down-to-earth prices.

But for American diners with portions to make your eyes water you've got to be Uptown around Times Square. Walk off your meal in Central Park - New Yorkers' back garden of 843 acres - or take a horse and carriage ride. …
