New York City – Part 3

OK, follow what was missing from the race trip to New York. On Sunday we went to the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, World Trade Center, Chinatown and SoHo. As they say that a picture is worth a thousand words, follow the photos of the tour. 🙂

We arrived at the Empire State Building as soon as it opened in the morning, which was a good one, because when we went down the line was already leaving the building (they say that on the worst days she makes a whole turn on the court and is at the door again)

View of the observatory on the 86th floor of the Empire State. Among the buildings that appear are the Chrysler Building (3rd tallest in NY) and the MetLife Building (13th)

View of the "Bank of America Tower", which has 366m and is currently the second tallest building in NY, although it was not officially opened until 2009

From the 86th floor up (there are 102 floors in total and have to pay more if you want to climb the extra floors)
View of the Lower Manhattan Region (World Trade Center, Wall Street, Statue of Liberty)

Central Park in the background

Taking the elevator down (the elevator takes less time to go up/down the 86 floors that the elevator of our building takes to go up/down 19. Hehe…)

Arriving by "ferry" in Liberty Island

On the island, with wall street buildings in the background

Hehehe… There's always these pictures. 🙂

The famous eagle, symbol of the USA

In the middle of wall street buildings
NY Stock Exchange, where the Dow Jones index is measured (more for "Down" Jones nowadays)

In front of the Federal Building, which served as the first U.S. Capitol, when George Washington (statue) was declared the country's first president

In the midst of all the tension of the New York financial center, a church to ease the nerves. That day she was very crowded! 🙂

In front of the church, the announcements of the aid groups, with the title "Navigating in times of uncertainty"
Adri is still amazed by what happened on September 11, 2001

Rebuilding wtc (if anyone is interested, you can click here to see the new project image)

In City Hall Park, which would be the civic center of NEW YORK, with buildings of the "legislative" and "judiciary" of the city

Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn

NY Supreme Court

Chinatown (in the middle of the mess, looks more like our famous "street vendors", with Rolex offerings, "original" handbags, perfumes, etc.)

Finishing the tour with a tour of SoHo (the neighborhood was named for staying south of Houston Street, or "South of Houston")
Well, after all the walk, we returned to the hotel to take the car and follow the trip back to Canada. We left New Jersey around 4:30 pm and arrived in Ottawa around midnight after facing a small snowstorm on the way (in just 3 days, weather for all tastes. Hehehe). At the border it was all quiet, because they only asked what we had done in New York and how much we had spent (for those who stay more than 48hours, the quota is 200 dollars per person).
I hug everyone,
