The new transportation hub recently opened at World Trade Center in Manhattan. This is how it looks like:

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.
