Walking through the city I also took some pictures of the remarkable architecture.
The city often shows hard contrasts between older (or older looking) buildings and very modern architecture.
I enjoyed looking at all the skyscrapers and to wonder about the details of the architecture. What drives me crazy, though, is that these otherwise perfect and symmetrical buildings often have small flaws which nobody seems to fix. I mean what’s going on with that window on the top level of the tower below? Could somebody please fix that immediately?
This is the Ground Zero Memorial:
This is the recently rebuilt One World Trade Center. Again: Why, why, why do some of the windows look unlike the others? Please fix this.
This building still seems to be under construction and it was partially hidden in the clouds when I took this picture. When it is done it will be second tallest (or tallest - depending on whom you ask) building in Manhattan.
