Williamsburg bridge New York City

The Williamsburg bridge, one of New York’s most famous landmarks is a suspension bridge built in 1903. Built across New York’s East River, this iconic architectural wonder connects Manhattan’s East Side to the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. When opened 117 years ago, the Williamsburg bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world but the exposed iron frames and lack of extra design elements left many Americans unimpressed. Today the Williamsburg bridge stands tall not just as a symbol of New York city but it represents the ingenuity of American architecture and the long-term vision of the past leaders of the country. Let’s take a look into the glorious history of the Williamsburg bridge of New York city. The construction of the historic Williamsburg bridge began in the early 1896s and the foremost purpose of this bridge was to connect the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn. The governor of New…

new york city architecture design

New York City architecture inspires me While walking around and enjoying one of my favorite Latin America coffee from Peru I got inspired and found many details about these buildings. I will separate the architecture styles in future posts. Probably sort them by boroughs and/or NYC neighborhoods.

New York City MTA Subway is the main transportation for most New Yorkers. Subway riders during COVID use the face mask. During the pandemic passenger rate reduced drastically, but there are still many us of who rely on the subway to carry on with our daily work commute. Some other subway riders during COVID pretend to use a face mask.

The magic of Grand Central Terminal in New York City and the neighborhoods around are inspiring. During the pandemic of 2020 the neighborhood has become more quiet and cleaner. I took a walk while having the best coffee from Latin America the other day and decided to take some pictures.

Grand Central Terminal is one of New York’s greatest landmarks and contains perhaps the city’s finest civic space. However, over time it has become a victim of its own success. A building designed to be used by 75,000 people per day now routinely handles ten times that number with up to a million on peak days.

NYC snow storm 2021 Grand Central

During this New York City Snow Storm of 2021 many New Yorkers were stranded at home. Most subway trains stopped running by 2PM and New York City was covered in white. Around Grand Central terminal in New York City the streets were covered in snow. The few people that went to work did not even come out of their offices at lunch time. I went outdoors while enjoying fantastic Latin America coffee brewed at home. Park Avenue in New York City was deserted. The only people outside were the cleaning crew shoveling the snow in front of the lobby entrances in Park Avenue. Unused phone booth around Grand Central Terminal were covered by snow. These phone booth are no longer used since many New Yorkers have a mobile phone service. Other New Yorkers got very creative and found a way to cover their shoes during this New York City Snow…
