CITY SLICKERS ROD AND PENNY TAKE A BITE OF THE BIG APPLE

15 AUGUST 2008


As a frequent visitor to the Big Apple, Rod - who owns a mansion in LA - will no doubt be well acquainted with the city's main attractions. If he felt like taking Penny on a sightseeing tour, a good choice would be to head for the legendary Statue of Liberty, while a trip across the Brooklyn Bridge offers some stunning views of the city's famous skyline.

The Empire State Building is another must-see, along with the buzzing billboards of Times Square and the awe-inspiring arches of Grand Central Station.

A stroll through Central Park, meanwhile, makes for an idyllic way for visitors to wind down after an afternoon on the tourist trail. And those who prefer to indulge in a little retail therapy can take advantage of the fabulous shopping opportunities that fill the surrounding streets.
