Views from Manhattan, NYC

brooklynbridge_bw_900This is the second post about NYC. In this I will show you a selection of photos from Manhattan. Above and below is The Brooklyn Bridge which looms majestically over New York City’s East River, linking the two boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn. The bridge took 14 years to build and was ready in 1883.

The complex also hosts  Jazz at Lincoln Center, the New York City studio headquarters of CNN and the Mandarin Oriental, New York hotel.
