This post is part of a blog series, detailing various historic landmarks on American soil. Last week, we posted about Washington DC-click here to view.
This is about New York:
Yellow cabs were everywhere-and I mean everywhere! According to some, they can only be in New York-and can’t serve anywhere else. (Do any of you understand the Joni Mitchell reference/joke in the caption?)
This was Central Park, designed to be a natural oasis by Voux and Olmstead. There were people everywhere..
I also went on a boat circling Staten Island to see the statue of liberty. It had quite a grandeur about it, something almost mythological.
I went up to the eighty sixth floor in the empire state building. It is very high didn’t fancy going right too the top, at 102.
This was an exhibit at The Met about Faberge eggs. I make similar things to this egg ornaments so it was very interesting to see. I also really liked the art they had there some of it particularly abstract.
In NEW YORK, Grand Central Station is quite iconic. I just had to take a picture..
