Photo Tour of New York City

Part One of the Photo Tour

As an Architecture student living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania I had the opportunity to go to New York City in order to view different locations. During the scenic event, I was captivated by the numerous buildings, the hustle and the bustle, and the entire city lifestyle NYC offered.

The Apple Store in New York City

New York City Apple Store, located at 767 Fifth Avenue in New York City, is the flagship store for Apple in New York City. This store is beautifully designed to appear as a large glass box from the street. Enter into the store by opening the large glass door and making your way down the beautifully designed glass spiral stair case. Inside the store is any electronic lover's candy store featuring every item ever produced by Apple.

Hearst Tower

The Hearst tower, located at 300 West 57th Street in Midtown Manhattan is the world headquarters of the Hearst Corporation. This six story base of the building was completed in 1928 and cost roughly two million dollars to build.

The architect Norman Foster, from Foster and Partners decided to create a diagrid tower consisting of 46 stories and 860,000 square feet of interior space. The tower was later added in 2006 and is the first skyscraper completed after the attacks on 9/11 in New York City.

Trump Tower

The Trump Tower in New York city raises 58 stories above the ground. This building, located at 721 Fifth Avenue in the Upper Easy Side of Manhattan is the fifty-second tallest building in New York City. The mail floor includes a public lobby with coffee shop and a beautifully lit waterfall wall. Mr. Trump was in the building at the time of my visit; however, we left before he appeared for public.

Welcome to Hub Pages,

I enjoyed this pictorial tour of NYC with its focus on architecture. The photo of the glass staircase is awesome and I had no idea the Hearst building was so old-it's amazing how modern it looks.

I've never lived in NYC but grew up in northern NJ and was able to go there occasionally as a child and later as adult. It's always exciting to visit and I especially like the Christmas season when the city is beautifully decorated.

Am voting this hub up, useful, beautiful, awesome and interesting.

I too was struck by the modern look of the Hearst Tower (not that 1928 was that long ago). My grandparents lived in the city. I, coincidentally, lived in Philadelphia (Ridley Park)and remember watching all the buildings go by as we road to Nana's and Papa's. The huge billboards with Santa having a Coca-Cola in hand always attracted me. Interesting, and welcome.

I have to say, I am very sorry. I made a mistake. The base (6 story structure) was completed in 1928. The tower was added on later and finished in 2006! That explains the modern twist of the building! I apologize!

No apology needed. I appreciate the clarification and still enjoyed the hub very much.
