Re: NYC Architecture and Development

I don't get the hate for the new world trade center tower. I honestly think it's pretty clever and has an understated elegance.

Re: NYC Architecture and Development

Wow, first month in NYC done and in the history books! It's pretty sweet so far... I love how many places the subway system can get me to, and takeout food is somehow a bit cheaper, but besides that it's not all too different from my time spent down on South Huntington. The building density is in a whole 'nother orbit though, that's for sure, and boy the number of ugly brown buildings here is staggering. Boston definitely is on the whole much prettier.

Welp this is my neighborhood, way up the island of Manhattan in the 160s



That's the big new guy, 432 Park Ave, looming in the distance







More of my neighborhood





That's the Hudson River and New Jersey right there...I love having this view every time I look west



Midtown from Harlem





Downtown for a quick minute



Da Bronx



More of my area













Downtown again









Now over to Brooklyn and the Gowanus Canal











And we'll top it off with some subway porn







Hope everyone here is doing well in the new year!

My brother lives in your neighborhood, though a bit closer to the 145th St express stop.

Re: NYC Architecture and Development

Hello all once again! Two months down in NYC and I can't really complain (although of course I could, ha). As it turns out the only thing that's really taken much adapting to is the subway system, and on that front I've learned lots, though there's always more I could know ("oh, at this station I want to be near the front of the train" etc etc).

Besides that, I can conclusively say that food is a little bit cheaper here while everything else is more or less a wash. Oh and living on the first floor of such a densely packed area is nooooooiiiiiiisy!













And on this day I walked the George Washington Bridge for the first time... such an impressive structure and the views are nothing short of awe inspiring























The first big blizzard that didn't deliver down here (my sincerest condolences to you guys... you're getting walloped)























I really love living in the shadow of this commanding structure







OK that's it for now. Good luck with all that snow

I can't wait to see the Pyramid in person. Ingels is a genius.

Thanks for the photos, Nexis!

Re: NYC Architecture and Development

Three months down already? Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit. Well NYC is starting to not feel so huge, which is weird since it's always been this overwhelming beast but I guess that's a good thing.



























Ice floes like whoa















































That's it for now, ta ta!
