Marcanadian's Manhattan - 100 Photos


I went to New York City for 4 days last week for the first time. Being from Toronto, I'm used to large cities but New York is on a whole other level. I took over 700 pictures during my stay and I obviously won't be showing them all, but I hope the ones I do show give an idea of what the city is like.

I apologize if some photos are of poor quality or overexposed. The weather wasn't great, but I made the most of it.

The plane is awaiting.

Sorry for the bluriness (I was on a bus). The Woolworth building is the tall skyscraper to the centre right. It was once the tallest building in the world.

That's 1 WTC, aka the Freedom Tower, which is going to be 1776 feet tall.

Excellent photos of the city! Seems like you had a blast. Too bad about the weather in June. But it seems that you had some sort of clear day.

Oh, I thought he was referring to the steel structure that is a few levels above ground. The picture he quoted didn't load for me. Thanks for the information though, I was wondering that as well.

Thanks for braving the storm! I guess I could have separated it into two threads.

Yeah but some people actually do make the mistake because of its location. I had friends visiting me two weeks ago and saw the building from the Empire State and though that it was the WTC1 (or they call it the freedom tower). I am sure many people that took photos from afar came to the same conclusion. But in reality is not even a floor yet.
