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…

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 Moments Wall Street Xmas Tree

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…

People chatting at New York City Seaport

New York City Seaport is another historic location and formerly home to NYC’s fish market before it was moved to the Bronx. Hurricane Sandy changed the mood in at NYC’s Seaport historic buildings specially to the ones closer to the East River. A new fancy Mall has been constructed instead of the old cool looking traditional Mall with its amazing food court located on the top floor. You could find a wide variety of food for really affordable prices. Now, there’s a fancy rooftop bar/restaurant. During my walk and while have amazing coffee brewed at home. I noticed another restaurant/bar right by the water. They are now using domes to sit restaurant customers outdoors due to the current COVID pandemic. Check out more pictures below hopefully this eating outdoors fashion stays forever. Feels like I’m walking somewhere in Europe. Traditionally New Yorkers are not used to this way of life,…
