The change is remarkable, a lot of work has been done here and it shows. Great new architecture in combination with the majestic Hotel New York. Nice place.

In the summer, everything is more fun - except the winter activities. This is a nice place to walk around during a calm summer evening or chill with some friends at the bars near by. Historical place with interesting things to see.
