Nice thread! I also discovered when I was in NY a few months back, that there are building everywhere that are very beautiful, yet not wellknown to public.

Btw, I think Bryant Park is NY:s nicest park, with all these tables you can use for free while having lunch.

This is a classic already. When you visit Manhattan you realize how much this building stands out.

Some things NYC does well: moving people around. The subway system is fantastic. It will get you anywhere. And there are no delays. I thought it was pretty amazing that the whole system keeps moving. I was there for four and a half days and traveled from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn into Manhattan every day. But the subway platforms are ******* ugly. I had to fight off a rat (ok that may be an exaggeration) I may have even seen the Ninja Turtles.
The little squares also great, where it s more pedestrian friendly and people can sit and enjoy the weather. More bigger cities should take inspiration from this because it works.

One negative I found in Manhattan is that the people are more primitive- yelling, curt, not smiling too much. But I get it, it's a huge city. It's New York.

I know New York City is the most popular city on this site so I hope to provide a new perspective on the architecture and vibe of this city.
