The New York City Subway system is the largest in the United States and one of the largest in the world. It has roughly 450 stations and 26 different train services. Truthfully, it's a bit confusing, not only inside but also outside; since most stations can be entered from each sidewalk and lead to a different side. That is, one side of the street will be an uptown direction and the other runs down town, but inside there could be a platform change. In others, there is an interior change. Regular fares are about $2, but are only available if you go often. You can get 6 for the price of 5, but you can only use four straight. They use the Metrocard, which pass through readers. Once on the subway, it's not too difficult to navigate. Be careful to determine if you are going uptown or downtown or to Brooklyn, and use the posters, if there are no workers who can explain the directions to you. Several lines pass through the same platform, so look at the train's sign to avoid mistakes. Some of the trains look like film shots, are very old and look ready to derail as they chirp incessantly. Overlooking that, they work very well, and are punctual. It's worth traveling on the Metro towards New York or Wall Street during rush hour to see it completely packed with office workers moving in and out of cars. It's something worth seeing, but depending on the number of people, you might want to go by taxi.
New York from below is spectacular: you arrive and nearly almost break your neck appreciating building heights. You realize before you go you can never approach all the sights, and though there are skyscrapers, almost every building you see on the streets is huge. From the air, I'm struck by the mass of buildings of the financial district as you approach Manhattan from the south, the bridges - Manhattan, Williamsburg and Brookly - and then the Empire State Building and the huge Central Park. Flying a plane over the island of Manhattan is a unique and unrepeatable opportunity, so if you have the opportunity, it won't be forgotten.
On the route between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, 2 hours from Los Angeles (200 miles), close to Barstow, at the gates of the Mojave Desert, you can visit a historic mining town that today has become a "ghost town" and a tourist attraction. The original town of Calico was created in the yar 1881, after the appearance of silver mines. It grew to 1,200 in the year 1951 an ex-miner, Walter Knott (founder of Knott's Berry Farm theme park), bought the town and it was reconstructed and became a tourist attraction. In fact, in the year 1966 it was transferred to the County of San Bernardino and became a regional park. It is pure desert, do not forget to bring water. There is parking at the entrance and the visit is 1 or 2 hours Go inside the mine tunnels. In Calico only 1/3 of the 30 wooden buildings are original. The rest have been reconstructed
San Francisco, California, is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and certainly is the case within the United States. From the iconic Golden Gate bridge to the famously hilly urban landscape, this City is well known for its romantic and photographic appeal. This evening photograph captures a row of Victorian homes with the downtown skyscrapers behind.
Apparently the fault of the '89 earthquake , when sea lions were swept up and deposited in the San Francisco Bay. The ice waters welcomed them, and then so did the city. They are very happy, and it is the strangest thing for tourists, but impressive nonetheless. They are found at Pier 39.
This Art Deco-style tower, built in 1933, is located atop Telegraph Hill, and is visible from many parts of the city. It's 60 meters high, attached to the hill, and provides a view of the city that is highly recommended.
The Chinatown gate, located in the beautiful city of San Francisco, is actually the entrance to a fascinating world where you can see thousands of different businesses, all populated by countless tourists, whether you go day or night ..... It is an experience not to be missed. Just think that the majority of the Chinese community in the United States is living in San Francisco, so I promise you that you'll find things there that don´t exist in any other Chinatown ....
Trump Tower is found in upper Manhattan on 5th Avenue. Millionaire Donald Trump built it in the heart of New York. The New York of the 1980s was dominated by yuppies, and there is no better example of this culture of success than real estate developer Donald Trump. A heady mix of vulgarity, wit, and extravagance, Trump Tower (not to be confused with the Trump Building) is a symbol of the man and the economic boom of the 80s. On its upper floors are luxury apartments of marble and on the lower floor is the famous pink stone atrium with shops and restaurants. There is a forest of plants and bamboo protected by glass. At the entrance to the street is the famous clock with the Trump Tower logo. It's address is 725 Fifth Avenue.
Passing Downtown Manhattan I saw this tall building with a very peculiar, twisted shape. It is a new building, opened in 2011, designed by famed architect Frank Gehry, known for the Guggenheim Bilbao. With 76 floors, it is the tallest residential skyscraper in the Americas, though I guess it won't be for much longer.
How many songs have you heard about New York? How many movies have you seen it in? Being in New York is like being in a television studio, constantly. All your dreams have come true. Although it must be said that it is also the most stressful city ever! Taxis are crazy, everything is fast food all the time...We missed Spain, and its food. But rest assured that New York will not ever be forgotten.
Between Monterrey and Carmel, California to the south of San Francisco, there's a highway. But, if you have time and money for the toll, it's worth traveling the 17 miles right along the coast and stopping occasionally to enjoy the scenery and a swim (with a wetsuit because the water of the Pacific Ocean in this area is icy all year long). There are many groups of seals and pelicans on the island as you can see in the picture. This is also reportedly where the scene of the Hitchcock movie "The Birds" took place.
