New York City is a cultural icon, in addition to being a thriving centre of commerce. It goes without saying that the city has a huge amount to offer its visitors in terms of accommodation, dining and entertainment. New York hotels have featured in blockbuster films since the early days of cinema and house the rich and famous night in, night out.
The cultural influence of New York hotels is far reaching. The Waldorf Astoria, birthplace of the Waldorf Salad; the Algonquin Hotel, setting for the literary Algonquin Round Table get-togethers and the Hotel Chelsea, famed for rock star notoriety and muse of many a songwriter – if those walls could speak!
So established is the history of hoteliers in New York that the city boasts one of the United States’ longest running trade associations, the Hotel Association of New York, founded in 1878. The accommodation available in New York is as diverse and appealing as the city itself.
Where do you want to stay?
If you’re looking for a luxury hotel New York will exceed your expectations. The city is a vibrant, bustling metropolis yet it is possible to find peace and quiet in an opulent home from home. The word famous Central Park is a huge retreat for resident New Yorkers and visitors alike, and provides one of the best settings for a short or long stay in the city. Located in Manhattan, Central Park has the unusual combination of natural tranquillity and the best of urban life, with the American Museum of Natural History, Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, the New York State Theater and much more just a short distance away.
For faultless hospitality, style and charm, a luxury hotel New York style is the perfect way to end a day sightseeing or doing business in the city.
On our way from Palm Bay and Melbourne to Highland Beach, we took a detour into Vero Beach on the old Merrill Barber Causeway over the Indian River on the ICW. You can see the new bridge under construction a couple of blocks north of the old bridge. The new bridge was completed early in 1995 and the old drawbridge was completely removed. NEW INFO (2009): I just did a Google Map of this area on the mainland side at Royal Palm Point… You would never know that there is where the old bridge approach was!

I have 3 children under the age of 8 who are extremely upset as you can imagine. He was wearing a black leather collar and also a choker chain. We unfortunately found his tag in the backyard. We have also posted flyers around the neighborhood; we were able to speak to a few neighbors and they stated that there have been a few cases were some (more expensive) breeds have been taken. . .we hope this isn’t the case.
Thanks again for your help.

According to AccuWeather.com Chief Hurricane Meteorologist Joe Bastardi, a strong tropical wave could develop into the second tropical storm of the season, threatening Florida later on Thursday and through the weekend.
The tropical system, which is currently bringing strong winds and rough seas north of Puerto Rico, could become better organized in the next 48 hours, as it moves into an area more favorable for tropical development.
People in Southern Florida and the Bahamas should be on alert for a tropical storm to form this weekend and be ready to make preparations.
AccuWeather.com meteorologists are focusing on two potential scenarios.
The first depicts the storm developing, crossing Florida early in the weekend and entering the eastern Gulf of Mexico as a weaker system.
Impacts over the oil spill site in the central Gulf would be less than were caused by Hurricane Alex, which moved through the southern Gulf of Mexico in late June.
The second scenario depicts the system moving through the Florida Keys late in the week, developing into a stronger tropical storm or hurricane. If this were to happen, impacts to the spill site will be increased.
Regardless of either scenario, Florida will be impacted first before any effects reach the Gulf.
“The weather map on Saturday could be a summer classic,” said Bastardi. “A hot shot into the mid-Atlantic and a tropical system affecting Florida or the Gulf.”

The informal, small wedding of Anna Key and Dr. Jason Jerry at the Vero Beach Hotel & Spa on August 1, 2009. Loved the soft guitar music for this romantic wedding gathering of friends and family in a beautiful setting. As always the staff at Vero Beach Hotel and Spa was wonderful. Best Wishes…… Verola Photography.
Over the last several weeks, Defenders of Wildlife’s Florida office has been working for improvements in search and recovery operations to impacted by the disastrous Gulf oil spill. We’ve worked to ensure that accurate, up-to-date information is reported from the Gulf and hosted clean-ups with our partners on beaches around Tampa Bay to prepare in case oil reaches our shores.
Today, I need your help to prevent another offshore oil disaster, one that could be right off our Florida shoreline. Please use the information below to contact your Florida state senator and state representative and tell them to put a constitutional amendment banning drilling in Florida waters on the November ballot:
Your State Representative Debbie Mayfield – (850) 488-0952 or (772) 778-5077
Florida House of Representatives Switchboard: (850) 488-1157
Your State Senator Mike Haridopolos – (850) 487-5056 or (321) 752-3131
Find Contact Information fort Your State Senator
You can make a big difference today! Just deliver this simple message:
My name is XXXXX and I’m calling from Vero Beach because I’m deeply concerned about the effects of offshore drilling on Florida’s wildlife, communities and tourist economy. During the special legislative session next week, I urge you to support a constitutional amendment banning drilling in Florida waters on the November ballot. Because offshore drilling poses such a significant threat to marine wildlife, the environment, fisheries, tourism, and enjoyment value of our coasts, it is critical for Florida to make the prohibition against drilling ironclad, and Floridians should have the right to vote on this very important decision.
Please report your call. Our advocates in the state capitol will be tracking the opposition to offshore drilling closely and following up with state representatives and senators to ensure that your voice is heard. Having seen firsthand the magnitude of the damage from the BP Gulf oil disaster, Governor Charlie Crist has called a special session of the Florida Legislature on Tuesday, July 20th – Friday, July 23rd… and we need your help to make the most of this opportunity to protect our coasts and wildlife. At stake are some of the Sunshine State’s most beautiful beaches and some of our most spectacular wildlife – animals like endangered Kemp’s ridley and threatened loggerhead sea turtles, whales, dolphins, giant blue fin tuna and rare shorebirds.
Currently, Florida has a moratorium on drilling our coasts, but that ban could be overturned in any legislative session – which almost happened just last year, putting our coasts and economy at devastating risk. It is now tragically clear that cleanup technologies have not kept pace with drilling techniques, and that endangers Florida’s coast and tourist economy, so I need your help to ensure that our coasts, communities and, especially, our wildlife remain protected from this toxic threat. Please contact your state senators and state representative now and speak out for permanent protection.
For the Wild Ones,
Laurie Macdonald Director,
