Skyscrapers – Trinity Church – Federal Hall – NYC Subway – Grand Central Terminal – NYC from the Bus

Grand Central Terminal

.

Unlike almost every city in the US, New York is a global example of an efficient public transportation system, with a solid network of subways and sub-urban trains who is also connected with the main terminals of buses, long-distance trains, and the airports. The Grand Central Terminal of NYC is one of the many epic stations who were built in the United States at the beginning of the 20th century, when the rail infraestructure was essential for the americans, just before the boom of the cars and the highways. Placed in Midtown Manhattan, the Grand Central Terminal has some futuristic details, often common on the conception of the “cities of the future” that the society had in that era, like its bridges and tunnels, and the multilevel passageways for the connection of the subway and the train. This is the HD video of the GCT:

As a sequel of the video of the GCT, this one shows the trains and material the lines of the subway network uses today, and how most of the stations look. The charm of New York on its own kind (gotta love this city). For those who don’t live in NYC, this video was shot on the 59th St. Station in Midtown Manhattan (Lines 1, 2, A, B, C, and D):

Federal Hall

.

Half a street away from the Stock Exchange stands the Federal Hall, who once was the Capitol of the US. It was rebuilt in the 19th century and today you may visit the museum of some of the stuff that happened in the building since the beginning. It’s worth a quick visit if you go by Wall Street:

Trinity Church

.

The street of Wall Street starts on the intersection with Broadway in the Lower Manhattan. In that place stands the Trinity Church, with its imposing front tower and with its amazing neogothic architectural style (pretty common in the churches of New York). On the backyard, it has a few burial grounds who give some green colours and fresh air to the concrete jungle of the Lower Manhattan. This is the quick video of the Trinity Church on HD:
