25 East 181st Street Apartment 8G
New York NY 10033

5 / 8/2006

Dear Rosy,
We thought you'd like a real letter from America instead of an e-mail. We started it the way Americans do too.
Our first days in New York have been very busy, so this letter will be short.

May this year is very warm so on our first day we walked a lot. was our guide, but it's difficult to get lost in New York. It a very clever system of streets and avenues. Streets run east to west across the island and are often called cross-streets, while avenues run north to south down the island.
First, we took the subway to the city centre. Most of the subway have the same names as the streets. We got off at Penn Station and walked to the Empire State Building.
There was a long queue to get to the top and after that we also wasted some time on an expensive attraction called Skyride (on the 2nd floor of the Empire State Building). The advert made the ride look like fun, but the ride itself was just a short film about New York. When we finally left the Empire State Building, we didn't have much time. We had a quick look at Rockefeller Center and some other famous skyscrapers and took the subway to Whitehall Street. From there we caught the ferry to Staten Island to see the Statue of Liberty.
In the evening we went to Broadway and saw one of the most famous musicals, Chicago. Did you know that Broadway isn't just one of the longest avenues in Manhattan? It is also famous for the small area near Times Square where Broadway crosses Seventh Avenue. This is the home of many Broadway theatres. This part of Broadway is also known as "the Great White Way" and is always full of tourists.
On the way home we got off the subway to have a look at the Guggenheim Museum. We didn't go inside, but the building is really worth seeing! The next day we had a rest and spent a lazy day in Central Park, which is so huge that we nearly got lost.

Love from all of us,
Rob and Mark

Streets and avenues— To find a place, it is very important to know the nearest cross-street and avenue to the address. This will help you decide which bus or subway line to use, and it gives you an idea of how far away a restaurant or a shop is. For example, if you tell a New Yorker that you need to get to somewhere on 48th Street between — 11th and 12th Avenue, he or she will be able to tell you the way easily.

East and west street addresses — Fifth Avenue divides Manhattan Street addresses into east and west. Avenues between the Hudson River and Fifth Avenue are west of Fifth Avenue; other avenues are east of Fifth Avenue. That means that every street has two sides: east and west, and you can often find two buildings with the same number in the same street. For example: 1 West 8th Street and 1 East 8th Street.


Street addresses increase by 100 for each numbered avenue as you move away from Fifth Avenue.

It's very easy to go west of Fifth Avenue towards the Hudson River. Street addresses from 1 to 99 are between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenue, and 100 to 200, between 6th and 7th Avenue, etc. If you want to go east, it's a bit more difficult because some avenues have names as well as numbers: Madison, Park, and Lexington. Street addresses 1 to 44 are between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue, 45 to 99 — between Madison Avenue and Park Avenue.

4.    Is there an address 700 West 42nd Street in Manhattan? Why? / Why not?
5. Is there an address 1000 East 39th Street in Manhattan? Why? / Why not?
