A tourist in New York City with photo camera. Life in New York:People on Central Park

Uno de los lugares más entretenidos para fotografiar en Nueva York es Central Park. Parece como si toda la gente estuviese acostumbrada a fotografiar y a ser fotografiada.
Las fotos están hechas un domingo a media tarde y sencillamente enfoqué la cámara hacia la calle por donde pasaban todo tipo de vehículos. Así la bici con un carrito detrás para llevar al niño, ciclistas solos o en grupos, coches de caballos, corredores, skaters.
Vida, sencillamente la vida de la ciudad, sea Nueva York sea otra cualquiera.......que cuente con un parque tan grande y bien situado como es Central Park.


Central Park is an urban park in the central part of the borough of Manhattan, New York City. It was initially opened in 1857, on 778 acres (315 ha) of city-owned land, later expanding to its current size of 843 acres (341 ha).
In 1858, soon-to-be famed national landscapers and architects, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, won a design competition to improve and expand the park with a plan they titled the "Greensward Plan". Construction began the same year, continued during the American Civil War further south, and was completed in 1873. It was designated a National Historic Landmark (listed by the U.S. Department of the Interior and administered by the National Park Service) in 1962. The Park was managed for decades by the New York City Department of Recreation and Parks and is currently managed by the Central Park Conservancy under contract with the municipal government in a public-private partnership.

A tourist in New York City with photo camera. People. New York Grand Central Station. Color, B&W

Uno de los lugares de Nueva York que apetece visitar es su estación de tren: Grand Central Station. La hemos visto en tantas películas que queremos verla personalmente y, hay que reconocer, que merece la pena. 
En esta foto la gente que pasa por su gran sala es el protagonista. Es un lugar por el que circulan al año mas de 80 millones de personas.


Grand Central Terminal (GCT) is a commuter (and former intercity) railroad terminal at 42nd Street and Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan in New York City, United States.Built by and named for the New York Central Railroad in the heyday of American long-distance passenger rail travel, it covers 48 acres (19 ha) and has 44 platforms, more than any other railroad station in the world. Its platforms, all below ground, serve 41 tracks on the upper level and 26 on the lower, though the total number of tracks along platforms and in rail yards exceeds 100.

.......Following the destruction of the original World Trade Center, there was debate regarding the future of the World Trade Center site. There were proposals for its reconstruction almost immediately, and by 2002, the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation had organized a competition to determine how to use the site. The proposals were part of a larger plan to memorialize the September 11 attacks and rebuild the complex. When the public rejected the first round of designs, a second, more open competition took place in December 2002, in which a design by Daniel Libeskind was selected as the winner. This design went through many revisions, mainly because of disagreements with developer Larry Silverstein, who held the lease to the World Trade Center site at that time

...........One World Trade Center's steel structure topped out at the nominal 104th floor, with a total height of 1,368 feet (417 m), in August 2012. The tower's antenna was shipped to New York in November 2012; the first section of the antenna was hoisted to the top of the tower on December 12, 2012 and was installed on January 15, 2013. By March 2013, two sections of the antenna had been installed. The spire's completion was scheduled for April 29, 2013, but bad weather delayed the delivery of the final pieces. On May 10, 2013, the final piece of the spire was lifted to the top of One World Trade Center, bringing the tower to its full height of 1,776 feet (541 m), and making it the fourth-tallest building in the world, as well as the tallest in the city, surpassing the 1,454-foot (443 m) Empire State Building. In subsequent months, the exterior elevator shaft was removed; the podium glass, interior decorations, and other finishings were being installed; and installation of concrete flooring and steel fittings was completed.

.....On November 12, 2013, the Height Committee of the Chicago-based Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) made the controversial announcement that One World Trade Center was the tallest building in the United States at 1,776 feet, declaring that the mast on top of the building is a spire since it is a permanent part of the building's architecture. By the same reasoning, the building was also the tallest in the Western Hemisphere

Los más habituales tienen forma cilíndrica, asemejándose a una torre, construida de madera, hormigón armado o metal
