For today we will hang around New York City for some shots of some of the iconic landmarks around the city. I will probably actually have a few series of these over the next couple of months, as I still have a ton of shots from NYC to go through. Anyways, on to the post!
The first couple images are of the new World Trade Center building, taken from a different angles. One the second day of my trip to the city, the building hit 100 stories, so it was a good time to be photographing it! The first one above was taken early in the morning on my walk from Brooklyn back into Manhattan. In the foreground is the building originally known as Beekman Tower, which houses, among other things, luxury rentals and an elementary school. In the picture it appears to be taller than the new World Trade Center, however it rises only 76 floors, 24 shorter than the World Trade Center was in this picture. The second image above is also of the new World Trade Center, however that image was taken on my walk through lower Manhattan, just above the financial district.
Next up is an image of the Brooklyn Bridge. I’ve posted many views of the bridge before, however none quite like this one. This was taken on the same morning as the first shot above of the World Trade Center.
Keeping with the theme of that morning walk, here is a view of perhaps one of the most iconic buildings in the world, the Empire State Building. It was a bit hazy that morning and in this shot I am shooting more towards the sun, so you can see a bit more of the haze than the other images.
Finally we have the Statue of Liberty. I’ve only been there once, on my first trip to New York about six years ago, but I did manage to make it to Battery Park on my last trip to the city. The line to board the ferry to actually go see Lady Liberty was so ridiculously long that I was glad that I did not have any plans to make the trip.
That’s all for today folks! Thanks for stopping by!
