TRAVELERS' TRIFLES OR WHAT I SEE FROM MOUNTAIN TO SEA M.A.C.
CHIEF SEATTLE SAID:
TAKE ONLY MEMORIES, LEAVE ONLY FOOTPRINTS.
The Paramount Building has neon signs now. It was designated a NYC landmark in 1988. It has 33 stories and is located at 2501 Broadway Street in the Theater District near Times Square. It was built in the Beaux-Arts architectural style. The Paramount Theater originally was located here but now we have Hard Rock Cafe 🙆.
This is Saint Patricks' Cathedral on 5th Avenue in Midtown Manhatten NYC. It was built in a gothic architectural style and was completed in 1878.
And what is on the opposite side of 5th Avenue from Saint Patricks' Cathedral? Rockefeller Center with Atlas Statue.
The Flatiron Building is one of the most iconic buildings in Manhatten. It is in mid Manhatten surrounded by 5th Avenue, Broadway, and 22nd Street. I was in front of the Eataly Italian Market and Café when I took this photo.
Posted on 9/11/2021 here although these may not be strictly landmarks. They are landmarks of time. 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹.
FROM THE 9/11 MEMORIAL MUSEUM.
This photo shows the surviving retaining wall and the most intact column from the former Twin Tower site. This museum is on the opposite side of the former Twin Towers location from where the new One World Trade Center stands.
And this photo was taken from the TOP of the One World Trade Center building which is presently the tallest building in the western hemisphere although there is another taller and thinner building being constructed in Manhatten.
One more photo from the top of the One World Trade Center. The church way down there amongst the trees is Saint Pauls' Chapel. It is next to Columbia University.
Walking past 30 Rockefeller Center with a KAWS sculpture and a quote from the Bible; "Wisdom and knowledge are the stability of your future."
The Mindeankeret is at Nyhavn Canal in Copenhagen. The Mindeankeret is a Memorial Anchor. It commemorates the civilian sailors who died at sea during WWII. Underneath the anchor is a lead capsule which contains the names of 1,600 sailors.
Malmö Castle, located in Malmö Sweden. This Fortress like castle is much more opulent inside than what the exterior indicates. In the 1530s, King Christian III razed much of the original castle that stood here and had this castle built as one of the most important strongholds of Dänmark ( Southern Sweden was part of Dänmark at this time). .
