Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Federal Reserve Bank of New York, 44 Maiden Lane, New York City, NY 10045

It would be hard not to notice the building of the Federal Reserve Bank. It mostly brings to mind an impenetrable fortress with its thick walls and powerful grills on the windows. The stones of the facade of the building were not chosen accidentally. Think about what they call to mind. Gold ingots. The bank was built as one of the strongest storehouses of gold in the world.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Wall Street, New York City, NY 10005

Trinity Church is probably one of the most famous and one of the oldest churches in the city - Trinity Church, still an active parish of the episcopal Diocese of New York.

In the course of several hours after those collisions, both skyscrapers were destroyed. Approximately 3,000 people perished. The place of this horrible tragedy from that time came to be called Ground Zero...

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Woolworth Building, 233 Broadway, New York City, NY 10003

Perhaps the person of Frank Woolworth is even more impressive than the building. He was a "self made man" as they say. The unique feature of his personality is that his deficiency - an intense bashfulness - was turned into an advantage. This is what happened. Woolworth was born and grew up in the country but at age 21 he decided that country life was not for him and he wanted something bigger. From his parent's home he went to the small town of Watertown, New York and found work as a salesman in a small store...

Stop At: New Museum of Contemporary Art, 235 Bowery, New York City, NY 10002-1218

The New Museum of Contemporary Art.
The very building is striking and surprising in itself. It is possible that you, like many others, are asking yourself the question, "How do these concrete pieces stay together and not fall?" Of course explanation is engineering. The building of the museum was built by the design of the Japanese architectural firm SANAA...

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Union Square, Union Square, New York City, New York

The square was built in the 1830's. It was built at the "union" of several main roads- hence the name.

A 1.45 mile long elevated section of a no longer used railroad spur. In the middle of the last century elevated spurs of the metro seemed to be a great accomplishment of engineering progress. But as time went on and the elevated spurs grew old, it was closed. With time the abandoned elevated began to rust and was threatened with destruction. Then local groups organized a group who took an active participation in its resurrection. But the resurrection was unusual...
