red fire and police call box

I noticed the other day after brewing my favorite coffee at home that we still have all these red fire police call box all over New York City. In this age of the internet and high technology where everybody can just pull out their mobile phones and contact the fire department of the police. Some years ago during the Giuliani and Bloomberg NYC government administration there were plans to remove these beautiful landmarks. But, many opposed to the law. And it makes sense, how about if the internet goes down? no smart phones or any new medium of communication? At…

Pier 76 New York City

While walking on the Hudson River and 34th Street I found the renovated Pier 76. This was one of the main piers in NYC for transportation and cargo back in the days. Now, Pier 76 in New York City has become a public park. There are many events going on almost during the entire year at this location. Make sure to visit the NYC Parks website above to see the schedule.

Williamsburg bridge New York City

The Williamsburg bridge, one of New York’s most famous landmarks is a suspension bridge built in 1903.

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.
