Well I've noticed the rehabilitation of the waterfront and it was a fine place to stroll or dine.

We've got more of postindustrial areas and docks waiting to be completely changed/reinvented. There are several old industrial buildings waiting for its new life Hopefully this is the future

I'm waiting for more from NY. Please show us everything you've got!

Your latest showcase truly makes me want to hop on a plane at anytime (literally, because there is an abundance of NYC—SFO flights) to get to Lower Manhattan and enjoy the sights and sounds you've gone through! I notice a diverse flow of architectural styles, particularly those from around the turn of the century towards the 1940s and 50s, in which the city has evolved tremendously thanks to a flow of businesses and creative energy into the five boroughs. Indeed, not only I see a flow of cars and yellow taxis that the city is known for, but I also observe a sense of both calm and vibrancy in its streets, especially contrasting one quiet neighborhood side street versus a multi-lane one-way avenue that runs crosstown. To me, your latest set shows how multi-faceted the city is in terms of architectural form and function that truly makes New York work like clockwork.

Splendid shots again, Benonie! Love them all!

Thank you all for the nice comments.

FOD, that's exactly what we like about NYC and the main reason we went back to explore more of this fantastic city. You can find glass skyscrapers all over the world, but there's only one New York with that splendid mixture of old and new on every street corner.

This massive one is kinda crazy, 33 Thomas street, a brutalistic center building, 550 feet tall.

New York looks fantastic! I'd heard of the high line before but never seen pictures, it really does look good and a great way to see the city from another angle/level. Your pictures are great at getting across the buzz of NYC too as someone stated earlier. I hope to visit New York one day. Cheers for these and keep posting pics if you've got more.

Thank yoy my friends. I can advise High Line to every visitor to the city. From some points you can see Chrysler BLD, Empire State BLD and Lady Liberty. So that are 3 classic highlights.
