Leaving today – What to see and how to get there
Sightseeing in New York
Set off into the city of superlatives! In New York there are more than just a few prominent and skyline-defining skyscrapers; with its ever-increasing number of more than 70 skyscrapers, on every corner you will find an architectural wonder that draws your eye upward. Whether it’s the One World Trade Centre, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building or the Rockefeller Center – many of the city’s well-known building gems are worthy of a visit in their own right. They also have lofty viewing platforms, with breath-taking views right across New York. Away from Manhattan’s glittering façades and streets that never sleep, however, there are also other neighbourhoods of the city worth exploring. Go, for example, over the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge into the borough of the same name, which is known for its exciting art scene and its numerous bars, restaurants and colourful shops. Anyone with even a little wanderlust will feel their heart skip a beat as they explore.
Getting to New York
Midtown, the Brooklyn Bridge and shopping tours are just the tip of the iceberg of New York, which has so much more to offer. For example, take the ferry and visit the most popular woman in the city: the Statue of Liberty. Or look at the impressive gift from the French from the air, namely on your descent into Newark Liberty International Airport, situated to the west of the statue. Together with John F. Kennedy Airport and the LaGuardia Airport, it is one of the most important hubs for your journey to New York. The subsequent journey to Grand Central Station will not only take you to another tourist attraction in the city but will set you down in the immediate vicinity of the Rennert Language School in New York.

A typical day at Rennert New York
With her language stay in New York, a dream has become reality for Elisa. As a child, the enthusiastic dancer dreamed of New York, the city of her longings, of unlimited possibilities. And now she is here, in the middle of it, in Rennert International language school in Manhattan. Each morning when she wakes in her huge bed in her room in her host family’s house, she has to pinch herself to make sure that it is all not just a dream. She eats breakfast together with Douglas and Carol’s kids – cornflakes with milk and a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. Then it is off to the subway. The school is just four stations away and Elisa soon meets up with her classmates in the student lounge.
Elisa finds it great that class sizes are limited to 10 students. She is also completely happy with her teachers – especially Nathalie, of whom she has grown fond. She is going to a dance theatre on Broadway with her this evening – Elisa can hardly wait and is counting the hours. She is very surprised at how many excursions the school has organised. She never thought that she would experience New York so closely – and already feels a little like a real New Yorker.
