Architecture Gems of New York

    Our capital is capital, to say the least! If you’ve not spent a day wandering and marveling at all the terrific, towering buildings, incredible architecture, and beautiful statues of this city, then the time is ripe for a day trip to the Big Apple.

    NYC is the place to be, for sure! So, book that bus or train ride, fill your automobile with gas, and get yourself one of New York’s fabulous hotels by the hour with daybreakhotels.com. This will allow you to make the most of your day by letting you rest your weary limbs between bursts of exciting sightseeing! You can also sleep, shower, or swim, as you see fit, while enjoying an architectural delight in terms of the hotel itself, if you choose!

    Some of the most interesting and impressive monuments in NYC are:

    1. The Empire State Building: this 102 story Art Deco skyscraper is surely the most iconic building in New York!

    2. The Chrysler Building: 77 floors of steel, glass, and brick make this another fascinating city icon. Its lobby lies an impressive 3 stories high and up on its roof are some rather cinematic and Gothic gargoyles!

    3.The Statue of Liberty: no-one can really visit NYC without taking a boat out to see this world famous landmark. Lady Liberty lies out on Liberty Island. She is 151 feet high and was presented to the US by France in 1886.

    4.Brooklyn Bridge: again, this architectural wonder has been rendered in film and on screen for as long as those media have existed. Built between 1869 and 1883, it was at the time the largest suspension bridge in the world.

    5.Grand Central Terminal: if you come into Grand Central then you can admire it before leaving to catch the other icons above. Made in a ‘beaux-arts’ style, it is a huge and impressive building with a stone facade, and it has been featured in many famous movies of the 20th and 21st centuries.

    As well as these, other architectural highlights include:

    ○ St. Patrick's Cathedral;

    ○ St Regis-Sheraton Hotel;

    ○ St John the Divine church;

    ○ the Metropolitan Museum of Art;

    ○ the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

    However, your time in the capital being limited, we suggest you focus on the first five landmarks given above, as they are the very best symbols of this bustling, brilliant city.
