Nice photos.

The little, yellow brick building that's adjacent to the tall one has historic significance. It's called Fraunces Tavern, and it's where George Washington gave a farewell speech to his soldiers at the end of the American Revolution.

Coney Island





Coney Island has an important Russian population.

























Manhattan from Williamsburg in Brooklyn.









Brooklyn Bridge



Brooklyn Heights is a fancy neighbourhood next to the Brooklyn bridge. It must have one of the greatest urban views in the world.





More will follow...
