Around the New York Streets. P.3.

Hi everyone! We continue our walk along the streets of the wonderful city of 

New York

, as well as the rather wonderful island of Manhattan! This post contains little text, but lots of pictures. I will offer you a virtual walk around the city with me.

As you can see, the roads there were also patched up.

There were plenty of flags in the city. Actually, Americans are one of the most patriotic nations.

A lot of completely different people were everywhere. I really liked the architecture of the city.

The Woolworth Building was built in 1913, with a height of 807 feet (246 meters).

Broadway from an angle.

From the other side is the majestic Manhattan Municipal Building. The building was built in 1912 and it is the first building in the world with its own metro station in the basement floors. Many skyscrapers in the US were constructed after this building, and they say that even Stalin-style skyscrapers were copied from this skyscraper.
On the roof of the building is the statue of Civic Fame.

This building was constructed in 1912. 

The Library of Congress, 1912

I love 

New York parks

. We came to the City Hall Park, which is actually downtown. Couple of blocks to 'Ground Zero' and people were playing chess, without any trouble. They were very happy.  

There were also water fountains - clean and free!

Tourists riding on a bus. If there is little time but much to see, this mode of transport is perfect.

Students or tourists were having a rest on the grass.

Glass skyscraper. Honestly, I like the skyscrapers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

We came to Battery Park. A very cute place with views of the Statue of Liberty.

Colonnade in Battery Park.

And this is a wonderful place, where we were sheltered. If I'm not mistaken, this district is called Pomona and it's actually a suburb of 

New York

. Americans very comfortably live in the suburbs of big cities.

Across the George Washington bridge is Upper Manhattan. Our goal was to see the Cloisters Museum.

As I understand it, all the bridges in the city are paid. The closer the bridge is to Lower Manhattan, the more expensive the fare is . . . 

And we went further.
