New York City last week

And with NYC I mean Manhattan. Freshest images available, just two days back in germany. NY is a great city and it is surprisingly european in style. Most of the highrisers have 'old style' facades which gives an impressive view. You havent seen NY, you havent seen the world.

Link to the thumbs gallery

I made more than 400 images, but just start with a glimpse.

Next to my hotel with a view to the Empire State.


The Crysler Building with the nirosta Krupp steel Dome seen from the Empire.




'The Rich Man Tower'


In Front of the UN.








Clock of the Grand Central Terminal.


The Public Library.


That piece was part ot the WTC.




Just 700 Tri. Bucks and its yours.


Southern Manhattan is very European with tight roads.


Wall Street - a former defense wall against the Brits.


Security everywhere.






Old an new City houses.


New Amsterdam.


China town.




SoHo - the buildings are made of steel, even the facade is just painted metall. Funny if you knock on them.

Great shots! Yes, New York looks much more European than the typical American cities like Houston and Atlanta.

This street for example:


Looks like this one in Milan, Italy (even if the architecture differs):

i like this thread because it gives you just enough of a taste of new york city to feel the height and the density and see the architecture without posting 500 pics. good job.

I think you mean typical sunbelt cities. "Typical American" isn't Houston or Atlanta. The Cities vary by region as "typical". Old southern cities look European (Charleston, Savannah, Richmond, etc) and so do most cities in the Northeast (Portland, Boston, Hartford, Providence, Philly, NY, Baltimore, DC etc). Than cities in the Pacific NW and west coast look much different (San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, etc). Than some cities in the SW have lots of Mexican and Native American influence (santa fe, etc). Than in south, along with the European like cities come Sunbelt cities where sprawl and dead streets are common (Houston, Atlanta, Phoenix, etc)

Big City Days.

The meeting of the world leader at the UN caused a lot of traffic jams and police everywhere.


The Walldorf Astoria was the first choice... payed by us.


There were everyday some parades or festivals.




Most of the time traffic was fine.


MoMa




From the Rockefeller building

Yes, of course, it is hard to generalise such a big country and say what is a typical American city, there are many kinds.

^The Trump World Tower looks much better from very near, it looks just black box from afar! Nice trip! Would be great if you post more Midtown photos!

I expected great photos due to your excellent work on the Berlin thread, and you certainly didn't disappoint! These are absolutely stunning!

NYC is a great city, and you've managed to capture most elements that help make it great! Thank you for sharing.
