Some pics I took last August/September from the best city in the world: New York!, after 25 days of stay now I really love New York more than ever, I belong to there!!! I made 1600 photos, these are only a few I uploaded for somebody in a spanish forum talking about the Flatiron building.

Hice 1600 fotos, y eso que los primeros días me corté bastante para no gastar enseguida la memoria. Sobre los rascacielos, para mi gusto son lo que más humanidad da a la ciudad, aunque también comprendo que haya mucha gente le pueda impactar mucho la ciudad y llevarse una impresión muy mala, a mi me impresionó en el sentido positivo. En mi calle a veces me sentaba a comer en una placita que formaban 3 edificios, uno de 35, otro de 40 y otro de 45 plantas, y con el tiempo (4 o 5 veces) te acostumbras muchísimo a esa escala, de forma que me parecían igual que te puede parecer un edificio normalito de 10 plantas en tu ciudad habitual.

Si queréis alguna de estas fotos a mayor tamaño, os la puedo pasar a la resolución original: 4000x3000, y si tenéis alguna petición especial, tengo otras 1600 fotos, puedo buscar la que os pueda interesar












Estas dos son de cuando el US Open, la mayroría de la gente animaba a Nadal, en los descansos a veces ponían los logros deportivos de España durante 2010 y cuando salía el mundial de futbol había una celebración general XD





Torre del NY Times, de Renzo Piano:




La torre finita de al lado del Flatiron, me gustó mucho, era muy vertical




La calle 57 tiene algunos de los edificios más altos, aunque no sean famosos, y ahora hay unos cuantos más en construcción o en proyecto entorno a los 250-310 metros, en 5 años esta calle va a ser de las más impactantes


Esta fue mi primera visión de Nueva York, me quedé con la boca abierta, este tipo de vistas impresionan mucho más en persona que en fotos, es como si en las fotos los edificios parecieran la mitad de altos


La recién terminada torre de Gehry en el Downtown


Una torre antigua cerca de la Biblioteca, que también me gustó mucho, es como la imagen típica del rascacielos de Nueva York


El Flatiron visto desde el Empire State








Desde el piso 86


Y desde el piso... 102!!! me costó 15 dólares más subir aquí, pero para un friki rascacieril, vale mucho la pena sobrepasar la cifra de las 100 plantas XD




Vistas desde el Rockefeller Center
