Downtown Manhattan (Blog 4)

New York has architecturally significant buildings in a wide range of styles spanning distinct through historical and cultural periods. It boasts a spectacular array of architecture, dense canyons of neo-classic temples and soaring skyscrapers. These include the Woolworth Building constructed in 1913, an early Gothic revival skyscraper with large-scale gothic architectural detail. Touring down Wall Street I had experienced historic, and active buildings. These buildings such as trinity church, Federal Hall National Memorial, and the Bank of New York were very decorative buildings, from the floor all the way to the top of the columns. Custom details gave a very extinct decoration to each structure.
The neighborhood of TriBeCa straddles Chambers on the west side; at the street’s east reveals the giant Manhattan Municipal Building. With an architectural renaissance style, with a screen of Corinthian columns. Its terra-cotta vault was modeled on the entrance of the Palazzo Farnese in Rome, and the south arcade has a ceiling of white Guastavino tiles. Standing today as a NYC landmark.
