Extreme Pictures of New York
• Extreme Pictures of New York
To get to the United States to have been something of a dream discharge. Having traveled almost the whole of Asia, visited China several times and UAE, we really wanted to get into the States, if only because of the fact that the first skyscrapers appeared there. The biggest challenge for the realization of this visit was to obtain a visa. this process is very difficult for Russian and Ukrainian citizens. This fall, get a coveted and long-awaited visa, we started planning our trip.
On the trip we spent nearly a month of time, and the first on the list, of course, was New York. NY - the largest and most exciting city in the United States. On it, we have identified a half weeks, and that was more than enough.
On the first day after arrival, we were able to enter the local guys who, like us, are taken illegally on the roof of skyscrapers. To our surprise, we met the 15-17 year olds, who recently conquered the roof of New York. With them we climb a few days, and once again realized that if you want to really do something interesting, to rely only on themselves.
The thing is that all local kryshelazy go on the heels of each other, if we look at all of their profiles on Instagram, there are only a few roofs, in which they go for months and shoot the same shots with the feet.
In general, in this post we will show these camera angles and shots of the city, you are unlikely to have someone else to see. Go.
Strong impression grid system in New York, when the streets form a grid of Street and Avenue. Almost all US cities were designed by the same system. Some streets reach extraordinary length that allows you to make such steep frames. In the photo Madison avenue its length of 10 kilometers, it begins in the heart of Manhattan and rests directly into the river Harlem.
New York City - the largest city in the US, part of one of the largest agglomerations in the world. The population is 8,405,837 people, agglomeration -. 23, 9 million New York is located on the Atlantic coast in the south-eastern part of New York State. The city was founded in the early XVII century Dutch colonists. Until 1664 it was called New Amsterdam.
In New York, one of the most expensive real estate in the world. Prices of hostels in average cost from 1000 rubles per day. In this regard, we are very lucky. From our friends we learned about the people of Russia and Belarus, which have been living in the United States and were willing to put us up.
Lower Manhattan and the famous district of Wall Street.
The cases with the laws in the states of things are very, very hard. Especially in New York. Due to the frequent incursions on the famous buildings of the city: Brooklyn Bridge, Freedom Tower, and so on, the government is going prirovnyat Trespassing to a federal crime, which would mean already a real prison term (3 to 5 years) in case of capture.
Probably the most famous case received wide publicity, not only in the state but also outside it, is the story of how the Russian tourist in broad daylight climbed the rigging on one of the piers of the Brooklyn Bridge. The purpose and the reason of this act, we will not discuss, but the consequences of which were after the arrest, should tell.
The most annoying thing in this situation is that the police takes your passport for the duration of the trial. The Court considers such cases within 2-3 months. The verdict depends on the severity of the crime. If you have been caught on a conventional roof somewhere in the Bronx or Brooklyn, you are likely to be discharged in a small fine of 300-400 dollars without writing to the database, if it is something more serious (bridge, government building) is already real time in prison (6 months). Plus the cost of a lawyer, 5-6 thousand dollars and a fine of about the same. It all happened with Russian tourists, about which I wrote above. However, due to the concerted action of the lawyer of the six months he spent much less. In any case, these effects are much worse than in any other countries. I recall that for a similar offense in Russia, you face only a fine of 500 rubles, and most of it can be paid on the spot, giving banal bribe a police officer.
Lower Manhattan in all its glory.
Central Park in Manhattan. Length park - about 4 km, width - about 800 meters.
The park is visited by about 25 million people a year. It is the most visited park in the United States, and it shows in many films and television shows make the park one of the most famous in the world.
Freedom Tower is the tallest building in the US, with an altitude of 546 meters. The tower was built on the site of the famous "Twin Towers", which were destroyed during the terrorist attack September 11, 2001.
After the incident with the two BASE jumper who jumped from the top floors of the tower still under construction and a teenager from New Jersey, who was able to enter and get out on the most spire in the final stages of construction, the government seriously undertook protection. At the moment, the tower is built, and it is impossible to get there. We failed to get even inside the building.
Talisman on this trip.
Woolworth Building is one of the oldest and most beautiful skyscrapers of New York. Its height is 241 meters. The building was built in 1913 in neo-Gothic style.
This is perhaps one of the most interesting places to which we climbed in NYC. To our surprise the last 30 floors of the building are under renovation, so we managed to climb to the very top without encountering any difficulties in the form of protection or closed doors.
The building of the New York Administration, there we climbed too!
The situation with roofs in New York is exactly the same as in Hong Kong, except for one feature: in the security camera is watching and even reacts to everything that happens.
Statue of Liberty.
Vadim and the Flatiron Building are many famous as the building Daily Bugle, where he worked for Peter Parker, the protagonist of the trilogy of Spider-Man.
. St. Patrick's Cathedral - Catholic Church in New York, an outstanding monument of the Gothic Revival.
Tourists from all over the world come to the US to visit the most interesting, unique attractions of this country. One of them, of course, considered the Times Square (Times Square) in New York is located in Midtown Manhattan. Since its inception, it is one of the most popular and visited places in the city. Its present name she received in 1904, when the world famous newspaper "New York Times" has moved into one of the buildings located on it. Times Square is also called the "Great White Way" and "crossroads of the world." It can rightly be called one of the most famous symbols of both New York and across the country.
One of the features of the area, is that, despite the huge number of tourists from all over the world, local channels arrange live shows and break scene right in the center of the square. It looks very cool.
Interchange near the Brooklyn Bridge. Another feature of America - the love of a great transport interchange. A good example: Las Vegas or Los Angeles.
One evening we decided to visit a public observation deck at Rockefeller Center building. Login here costs about $ 30, and hence open some of the best views of the Manhattan skyline. Be sure to visit.
At the top of Empire State Building is an observation deck, but we have to climb on it did not, there are the same types as in the Rockfeller Center, and look not very cool, and the city through a hole in the grid.
Brooklyn Bridge. Because of the increased attention of the authorities to this bridge, take risks and climb on it, we did not.
Quite long to decide whether to risk our freedom and to climb on the bridge or not. As a result, climbed on the Manhattan Bridge ...
So ended the New York and we flew to Chicago.
