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.
Sunset at Seaport District is fantastic Walking in New York City while having authentic Latin America coffee from Guatemala I bumped into the Seaport District in Manhattan the other day.
Taking NYC architecture photographs is one of my main passions. Here is the beginning of many more NYC architecture photography I will be taking while having Latin America coffee and walking around New York City. I will focus mainly on authentic and historical architecture and not in the new boring glass buildings.
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.
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…
Xmas day in New York City in 2020 is very different from other years. But, more New Yorkers came out to enjoy pictures with the Xmas tree, the Fearless Girl of Wall Street and the Bull of Wall Street. These are normally tourists attractions where you have to stand in line for hours to take a picture in a rush. I was also able to appreciate the tall buildings, including the wonderful details carved into the brick, from a different angle while having an amazing Latin America Coffee. Xmas Day in New York City in 2020 where there are almost zero tourists walking around makes NYC feel like a different state. Where there used to be hundreds of people there are only a handful now. It does not matter New York City is still my favorite city in the United States. During the pandemic in 2020 everyone is wearing masks…
