Unique NYC Architecture

By March 25, 2016Uncategorized

Upon visiting New York City, you’ll notice one thing: that every structure is built with it’s own unique characteristics. Each architecture is difficult to replicate, especially these:  

Le Cirque at the Bloomberg Tower

On Lexington Ave – look for Manhattan’s 15th-tallest tower, named after Mayor Bloomberg – you can’t miss it! This glass, curving structure looks futuristic but was in fact created a decade ago. The Le Cirque restaurant offers some of the finest dining in NYC and is an experience not to miss.

Grand Central Terminal

Hop on a subway downtown to Grand Central Terminal. This iconic building is home to the largest railroad terminal in the world and offers so much unique architecture. It starts with its one-of-a-kind giant clock on the exterior and continues with Tiffany glass and tall sculptures surrounding it.   

Flatiron Building

It looks the way it sounds! On Fifth Ave between 22nd and 2rd, this triangular structure has been New York’s most talked-about for over a century. Built in 1902, Flatiron Building was believed to collapse upon encountering heavy wind gusts, but the building remains strong to this day.

Chrysler Building

Last but not least, we can’t forget the other iconic structure on Lexington Ave between 42nd and 43rd. The Chrysler Building is often overshadowed by the Empire State Building, and while both are a magnificent sight, this building held its title of the “world’s largest skyscraper” for approximately 346 days after its completion in 1930. If you’re visiting the city, this is a view you won’t want to miss!
