ABC Wednesday: H is for City Hall Park

When my sister and I took the express underground from the World Trade Center to Grand Central Station, there is only one stop in between, which is City Hall Park and Brooklyn Bridge.  That peaked my interest.  After we took a break at Grand Central Station and took some pictures, we headed back to the City Hall Park.  Coming out from the underground, the view is typical New York, tall impressive buildings lining two sides of the street.  There is no where to look but up.  Here is a view on Chambers Street towards the Manhattan Municipal Building.  The Tweed Court House is on the right and City Hall Library is on the left.

A closer look of the Manhattan Municipal Building.

A very impressive Tweed Court House.

 Every where we looked we could see these highly ornate structures on top of the buildings.

Here is a detail view outside of City Hall Library.

What is this building?  100 Centre Street, the infamous New York Criminal Courts Building.

The weather was so nice that day.  There were hundreds of people, locals and tourists alike, walking on the Bridge.

I have seen the photographs of this bridge many times and was glade to be able to photograph it myself.

Well everything about the Brooklyn bridge, at least for photographer, are the lines!

We had a marvelous day of photo safari of New York City.  We would visit Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park the next day.
