The new transportation hub recently opened at World Trade Center in Manhattan. This is how it looks like:
A stroll on the south-west esplanade in lower Manhattan, with beautiful views towards New Jersey across Hudson River.
I was asked by theWIRE to take pictures of a hearing in front of the New York City Planning Commission, regarding building of the new Cornell-Technion campus on Roosevelt Island. Several people presented their pros and cons about this very interesting project. If everything goes well and as planned, Manhattan will have a brand new, state of the art engineering school by 2017. For me it was a very interesting experience, as an amateur press photographer, which resulted in more “Manhattan Faces” images for my blog.
Last month, a new park was opened in New York City. It is a memorial dedicated to president Franklin D Roosevelt, build on the southern tip of Roosevelt Island, after the plans of architect Louis I Kahn. The park was named Four Freedoms Park and this link will give you all the information you want about it. As a Roosevelt Island resident I can share that building the park on the island generated a lot of heated debates about the design, environment, Manhattan views, etc. Yesterday I finally saw it and I took the images below. Curious to see your feedback about the park, do you like it?
A few panoramic images of Manhattan’s upper east-side over Central Park in November. You don’t need to travel upstate to see beautiful autumn colors, they are right here in the middle of the city.
Street art in Williamsbug, Brooklyn – one of the booming neighborhood in New York, where a lot of young people want to live, despite higher than average housing costs.
Upper west side is also home to one of the most prestigious schools in the country, Columbia University. It’s a few blocks away from the cathedral you saw in my post yesterday, making this neighborhood unique and interesting to the visitor.
