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.
I cannot believe that LaGuardia Airport renovations can virtually completed. Minor details still on the works. It was easy to get around and most important it was way more easier to get a taxi, Uber or Lyft at the conveniently organized waiting areas. Sorry JFK, but LaGuardia airport made this option better. Take a look a some LaGuardia airport renovations pictures I took during my last visit to this airport. I though it will never happen.

I’m starting this exhibition New York City Architecture. NYC still has many original brick architecture and hopefully this architecture won’t be replaced by fancy boring glass buildings. Contact me if you like to collaborate. Make sure to visit our nice MTA subway site to learn how to move around NYC without a car.
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.

Taking NYC architecture authentic 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.
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.
