1 Statue of Liberty in New York City, New York

In the middle of New York Harbor is a 238 BC Roman goddess called Libertas, but most know this French gift in 1886 as the Statue of Liberty. The crowned and robed figure that stands 351 feet on Liberty Island welcomed more than 12 million immigrants that were processed in nearby Ellis Island from 1892 to 1954. Those were the ancestors of one-third of the U.S. population. She holds a tablet with the date July 4, 1776, which is why it was appropriate that the statue reopened on Independence Day in 2013 for an expected four million visitors a year.

2 Times Square in New York City, New York

The bright neon signs, flashing ads, street performers, careening cabs, musical theaters and guarding police at Times Square in Midtown, New York, is only a part of the menagerie. About 40 million people visit annually, hence its “Center of the Universe” nickname. In 1872, it was called Longacre Square until the New York Times became a major tenant in 1904 and the area adopted its name. Once considered a prime location, it deteriorated from the Depression years until the mid-90s when Mayor Rudolph Giuliani cleared out the porn theaters and helped restore the Broadway ones. This has been the location of countless parades and movies plus the New Year’s Eve ball drop since 1907.

It received a patriotic facelift in 2011 when Architecture Research Office designed this massive American Flag for two sides of the building. At night, the red, white and blue shine brightly from the LED lights inside the glass panel.

5 Central Park and Skyline in New York City, New York

Nearly 8.5 million people live in New York City but over 37 million visit the 843 acres known as Central Park. Started in 1857, it has evolved into a mecca of fun, enjoyment and relaxation that includes carriage horse rides, jogging paths, a carousel, a playground, a zoo, restaurants, outdoor sculptures and plenty of grassy areas to lounge around, sunbath and enjoy the cityscape.

6 Fifth Avenue Apartment Buildings Around Central Park in New York City, New York

Living with a view of Central Park is wonderful but costly. For example, on the right is 820 Fifth Avenue that was designed like a Venetian Palazzo in 1916. It has 12 floors and 12 apartments that each sell for about $35 million. Its neighbor with the distinctive slopped roof and chimneys is 825 Fifth Avenue. Its 23 floors have 64, much smaller units which tend to sell in the $6 to $7 million range but a one bedroom can be yours for about $1.5 million.

7 General Sherman Statue in Central Park in New York City, New York

General William Sherman was a legendry leader in the Union Army during the Civil War who is quoted as saying, “War is hell.” Shortly after his death in 1891, sculptor Augustus St. Gaudens was commissioned to create this equestrian bronze tribute with the Genius of Victory figure leading the way. The ensemble was installed in Central Park in 1903. This photo was taken shortly before the statue was re-gilded in 2014.

8 One World Trade Center Construction in New York City, New York

When this photo of One World Trade Center was taken in mid-2013, it had just become the tallest skyscraper in America at 1,776 feet – a height that is a tribute to the U.S Declaration of Independence and to the 2,600 people who died at Ground Zero on 9/11. After years of construction delays, the Freedom Tower opened at the end of 2014 at a final cost of about $3.9 billion.

9 New York Stock Exchange Building in New York City, New York

Stock ownership among Americans peaked at 65% in 2007. But when stock values on the NYSE and NASDAQ plummeted during the Great Recession, so did participation. In 2013, only 52% of adults owned stocks. However, the New York Stock Exchange is still the world’s largest. The exterior of the “Big Board” has a Greek and Roman feel with its six columns, Corinthian capitals and high-relief sculptures.

10 America Statue Alexander Hamilton Customs House in New York City, New York

I was immediately impressed by the Beaux Arts style of the Alexander Hamilton U.S. Customs House. Its main architect was Minnesota native Cass Gilbert whose work I admire on so many wonderful buildings, state capitols and museums. The four sculptures in front were created in 1907 by Daniel Chester French who also designed Abraham Lincoln at the Lincoln Memorial. They are called “The Continents” representing Africa, Europe, Asia and this one is America. Audrey Munson, the famous model for so many statues in NYC, posed for the woman. This building now houses the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian.

11 Federal Hall National Memorial in New York City, New York

Visitors to Wall Street typically go to see the New York Stock Exchange but sharing the corner is the Federal Hall National Memorial. This Greek Revival edifice was a custom house when it was built in 1842 and now is a national memorial. Several historic events occurred in the previous City Hall that was built in 1700. For example, the concept of freedom of the press was established in 1735, the message to Britain of “no taxation without representation” was written in 1765, the Congress of the Confederation met here until 1789, and in that same year George Washington was inaugurated on its balcony as the first President of the United States.

This George Washington statue between Doric columns commemorates his inauguration as the first president on April 30, 1789 at the Federal Hall balcony in New York City. That building was torn down in 1812, but the Federal Hall National Memorial was built in its place in 1842. The bronze statue, which faces the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street, was sculpted by John Quincy Adams Ward in 1882 and marks the spot of Washington’s inauguration.

14 Chrysler Building and Park Sign in New York City, New York

In a city that is filled with skyscrapers, there is no mistaking the iconic, Art Deco crown of the Chrysler Building. It had the distinction of being the world’s tallest building for less than a year after it was built in 1930. And it achieved that claim through the trickery of its architect, William Van Alen. He waited until a competitor’s project at 40 Wall Street declared itself the tallest and then immediately hoisted a hidden 121 foot antenna on top of his building in less than two hours.

17 MetLife Building Above Grand Central Terminal in New York City, New York

When this 808 foot skyscraper opened in 1963, the fifteen foot letters on top read “Pan Am” because the United States’ largest airline had signed a 25 year lease to make it their headquarters. However, their slogan of the “World’s Most Experienced Airline” proved ironic because they ran into financial difficulties in the mid-1970s which grew worse until their demise in 1991. Nine months later, the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company replaced the name with MetLife. In 2005, they sold the building for the record setting price of $1.72 billion.

On top of this 14 foot Tiffany glass clock on the 42nd Street façade of Grand Central Terminal is a statue of Mercury who is, among many things, a Roman god of travelers. He is shown in classic fashion wearing a winged hat, called petasos, and holding a rod with a pair of intertwining snakes, call a caduceus staff. On either side of him are Hercules and Minerva. This ensemble of statues is called “Transportation” and also “The Glory of Commerce.” They were made from Bedford limestone, weigh 1,500 tons and were created by Jules-Félix Coutan in 1914.

The fortress never saw battle but it was the main processing center for more than eight million immigrants from 1855 until 1892 when that function moved to Ellis Island. It is now a National Monument managed by the National Park Service.
