Lower Manhattan which was the point start of New York City’s Architecture evolution has a lot of beautiful landmarks. some of them can be boring and others are super tall rarity that is transforming the city’s shape a little.
For example the museum of the American Indians it is located at the southern tip of manhattan, adjacent to both bowling green and battery parks. It was designed by Cass Gilbert, who later designed the Woolworth building which you can see from the front step of the museum. The building was built in the 1800’s it is a example of what a masterpiece of Beaux-Arts represents and also it embrace the city beautiful movement. Facing the city and the park, those sumptuous sculptures, and decoration by acclaimed artist of the time was so significant to the idea of making the building a unique triumph.
The streets in lower Manhattan are narrow, and also gave sense of confusion, adventure fill with dead-end and so forth, but also can be amazing knowing where it leads. A great example is broad st. In the 1700’s it was named broad canal because it was the landing area for the first ferry between manhattan and brooklyn. Later it became the center of financial activity, and all the smaller building existing at that time were replaced with grand banks and stock exchange buildings. As you walk along broad street toward Nassau St you can feel it curved a little, and also be dazed by the surrounding of Neo-roman and geek revival façade of the buildings with beautiful tuscan, doric, ionic columns. once arrived at the corner of Wall St , and broad St, your left is heading to an amazing Gothic revival Church (Trinity church) which delivered a sense of adventure as if you are walking toward the pass.
In other word lower Manhattan is the central area for business, culture, and government buildings some of them is amazing with old and modern architecture and other’s can be bold in there design blocking the view of appealing buildings around them.
