    Showoff an create momentum and for us it was just waiting to see the breathtaking views.
    But before seeing them cool video . The observatory.It's true that it's indeed the most beautiful views on New York but the World Trade Center was more chic and classic.A miss for me and way too expensive.

    I recommend visiting it at least twice, once when its rush hour to get in the real mood of Grand Central and its beautiful chaos with the crowds trying to leave Manhattan, and another time when its off-peak hours, to see the building and its beautiful architecture.

    This is an amazing piece of architecture. Such a great space to walk around, and even relax a bit. The shopping is great too. Lots of pop-ups too. I think it's a must see!

    Magnificent structure, it's a pity that the access to the stairs is not allowed anymore. The Vessel is located in a neighborhood with buildings all as beautiful as each other.

    Probably the world's most beautiful skyscraper imo, specially considering its age.
    Last time we were in NYC 5 years ago we were allowed to enter the lobby, now that's not the case any more. Such a pity.
    Still my fav NYC building, just deducting one star because of that.
    See some amazing pics I captured from High Line and from Vanderbilt tower.

    This Daniel Burnham designed building is very cool and from above it resembles an old iron. Currently getting a face lift.

    The One World Trade Center is a beautifully designed skyscraper in New York City and is the tallest building in both the United States and the Western Hemisphere.

    It has 94 stories and it’s top floor on the observation deck is considered to be floor 104. When including the spire in the height measurements, the One World Trade Center
    is 1,776 feet high, which is an homage to America’s Declaration Of Independence in the year, 1776.

    The current One World Trade Center shares the same name of the original North Tower, which was tragically destroyed on 9/11/2001 by an airline crash that was caused by terrorists.

    The development and eventual operation of the new One World Trade Center is a testament of America’s strength and resilience and it’s ability to bounce back following a national tragedy.

    Owned by the Port Authority Of New York & New Jersey, the One World Trade Center was designed by David Childs of Skidmore, Ownings & Merrill and was opened to the public in November of 2014.

    In June of 2022, I brought myself and my wife to visit the One World Trade Center and I treated her and myself with tickets to sightsee and explore its observation deck.

    When visiting the observation deck, we took amazing pictures of the breathtaking views of New York City’s skyline, the Hudson River & the Harlem East River as well as parts of New Jersey.

    Both my wife and I highly recommend that everyone visit the One World Trade Center, specifically it’s about observation deck. You’ll be guaranteed to have an unforgettable experience!!!

    One of the most striking skyscrapers of an early 20 century era along with the Empire State building and Chrysler.
    Terrific Gothic style high rise of a trade magnate close to NYC City Hall and its park, as well the Brooklyn bridge.

    We took a tour of the catacombs at this church and then decided to explore the church on our own, and were so appreciative of the opportunity! This church is located in the heart of downtown NYC but somehow seems to be constantly overlooked, which is a shame. It was the original cathedral of the Archdiocese of New York before the Catholic population grew too large for the building, and the love shown to this church really shows in the attention to detail. The history of the church is interesting, and also a bit sad, given the number of unnamed bodies buried here (due to the rampant poverty in the area at the time). Unfortunately, this church is frequently overlooked in favor of the larger cathedral on Fifth Ave, which is a shame, given the aura of spirituality surrounding the building. If you have the chance, please take a tour of the catacombs as well, they're fascinating.

    A lot smaller then St Patrick’s Church but still worth to visit. Don’t miss the visit where Alexander Hamilton is buried. And we visited in June 24th 2022 and they still asked for you to wear mask and were checking your vaccination records.

    PATH is bold and maybe even a bit brash, but I loved it. It's unashamedly American, strong, and really did speak "we will not be defeated" to me.

    Build sort of like a fortress, maybe a castle of money. Lots of power in this grand building that we stumbled upon while walking from Wall Street to City Hall.
