From the series "New York by the bird"
Today, I wear for you the tour guide's cap. Since the last NYC photo, we are a bit further up in Manhattan, still on the edge of the Financial district. You can see on the left (with the tiny bridges on it) the back of the Woolworth building (1913, neo-gothic, by Cass Gilbert, 792 feet, 241 meters). Mr Woolworth pays everything in cash with the five and ten cents coins coming from his chain of, well, five-and-ten-cents stores. Let's continue the visit. To the right, near the frame, you will see a small spot under construction: it's Ground Zero. By the way, the big cubic skyscraper in front of the building site is the 7 World Trade Center. Behind, the big ugly black mammoth is the 1 Liberty Plaza (1973, International Style II). Now, a bit more in the center of the photo, the black elegant pencil is the Millennium Hilton hotel (1992, Late modern). I told you before, we are on the edge of the Financial district. The big neighborhood, flat in appearance, and taking the center of this composition is the south of Tribeca. You should see Robert De Niro somewhere… This area is highly sensitive (Ground Zero, World Trade Center, Wall street) so I space out my flights above this part of New York city.
