Character Buildings In New York City

In continuing the series on New York City, this is my third post (firstsecond).

This will take you to the clusters of glass, steel and concrete. The tall buildings of NYC. Capturing them on camera was easy.

Brilliant architecture and lovely designs have infused life into these buildings, giving them character.

  1. Reblogged this on Forget the Viagra, Pass Me a Carrot and commented:
    The Write Might brings New York to Saturday Reblog – These buildings are an incredible feat of engineering and like ant hills are teeming with life. Great photographs

  2. Did you get a shot of The Dakota, or did I miss it?

    Now that’s a cool building. 1880’s luxury apartment house.

  3. Hi!
    I’m not sure which buildings are taller than others but these are very tall than I am used to. It reminds me of the times when I was an ironworker who helped build the framework to buildings like these. They were pretty tall too. I love the way these buildings have a look of their own. It helps to distinguish how & what they look like when describing them to other people I know. Very cool!

  4. wow – this is one of the best slideshows of the buildings in new york that I have ever seen. love them all – but that unique vie wot the NYSE was my fav. but such a great post. 🙂 ~y.

  5. Looking at your pictures from so far away I was humming the old tune that goes…. “Take me back to Manhattan, take me back to New York, I’m just longing to see once more, my little home on the hundredth floor. Can you wonder I’m gloomy? Can you smile when I frown? I miss the East side, the West Side, the North Side and the South Side. So, take me back to Manhattan, that dear old dirty town!”

  6. Thank you for following my blog. I lived among the buildings of New York and can attest to their beauty. Nice pictorial

  7. Great pictures!
    NY – the city I think everyone wishes to visit. It’s one of my destinies too, I hope someday I can visit it. It has a particular mindset and energy 🙂 Which building is your favourite?

    • Thanks 🙂 Hope you’ll travel to the city soon. Well, each building is unique and I like all of them, but since you asked me I’d say Freedom Tower, New York Stock Exchange, The National Museum of the American Indian, to name a few. Which one would you definitely visit when you’re here?

      • Freedom Tower as well, although I would love to visit the New York Public Library next 🙂 From a psychologist point of view and giving a second look to your title, I couldn’t avoid thinking what these choices may mean lol. Thanks for your time 😉

  8. Oooh, NY skyscrapers–thanks for reminding me I gotta go there someday to see it all in person!

  9. Very nice. Makes me want to visit the USA. I come all the way from Singapore.

  10. Fantastic images and buildings ! I have to visit New York 🙂

  11. Well, it’s not Europe but it’s as close as we have here in America! I wish all cities were like New York. Maybe not in scale or population but the energy, dedication and artistic significance.

  12. What a terrific collection of shots of NYC’s grandest structures, old and new.
