Fun facts about New York

Your nanny is one of billions of people who has heard the jingle, “I love New York.” And there’s much to love about New York too. New York City, also known as “The Big Apple,” hosts what’s arguably the biggest party of the year every New Year’s Eve as the ball is dropped in Times Square. As Frank Sinatra so smoothly crooned, New York is “the city that never sleeps.” Perhaps this is because Manhattan gave America the first public brewery! Many celebrities live or once lived in New York, including United States presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Theodore Roosevelt, poets Walt Whitman and Ogden Nash, Hollywood celebrity and singing sensation Barbara Streisand, and infamous painter and illustrator, Norman Rockwell. Upstate, just north of the New York State capital, Albany, your nanny can experience the excitement and fun of the Saratoga Racetrack. Saratoga Springs is certainly the August place to be during race season. The quaint town full of shops and restaurants is hopping in the summertime, especially after a day of racing. Further north, take pleasure in Lake George, full of shopping and amusement parks and boating. If your nanny skis, suggest a spin on Lake Placid, where the 1980Winter Olympics took place. There is certainly plenty to do in the Adirondack Mountains.
