City Guide: The Best New York City Landmarks To Visit – New York Design Agenda decided to present you the best new york city landmarks. From Washington Square Park to the Brooklyn Bridge, these are the best architectural landmarks to visit in NYC. Take a look:
WORLD TRADE CENTER TRANSPORTATION HUB
The Santiago Calatrava-design World Trade Center Transportation Hub opened in the spring of 2016. From its initial design through to its final completion, the project proved to be arduous for its symbolism, its physical complexity, as well as for the number of commuters it would need to accommodate.
WASHINGTON SQUARE PARK
Washington Square Park is considerably smaller than other New York parks, yet the densely used green space, which is positioned in the midst of the trendy Greenwich Village neighborhood and includes the beautiful Washington Square Arch, has become a hallmark of the city.
Thousands of New Yorkers showed up to the opening ceremony of the Brooklyn Bridge in 1883. After 13 years of construction, locals were still weary of its safety, and to prove its strength, authorities invited a circus entertainer to walk 21 elephants over the bridge. The 1,595-foot-long structure was the world’s longest suspension bridge until 1903 when the nearby Williamsburg Bridge overtook it by 4.5 feet.
The Brooklyn Museum is located along the western tip of Brooklyn’s picturesque Eastern Parkway Blvd. It is a 560,000 square foot museum that contains roughly 1.5 million works of art. Designed by the once prominent architecture firm, McKim, Mead & White, the Beaux-Arts structure is the third largest museum.
STATUE OF LIBERTY
Designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, the Statue of Liberty was erected off the southern tip of Manhattan in 1886. From the ground to the tip of her torch, Lady Liberty stands just over 300 feet tall. The statue has a crown of seven rays, representing the seven seas and continents, and a tablet inscribed with “July IV MDCCLXXVI,” celebrating the date the U.S. declared independence from British.
