My trip to TriBeCa (Triangle Below Canal Street)
I got to see the "squiggly" building. This is one example of some awesome architecture in New York City, designed by Frank Gehry.
I then took trip near the Brooklyn Bridge (which connects Manhattan and Brooklyn) and got to see the great Municipal Building. It is really neat because cars can travel under that arch in the back. And on the top is a golden statue of a woman, it is named "Civic Fame." She holds a crown with 5 points (each representing a borough of New York City).
Here I am at City Hall. Notice the neat Corinthian columns. Many NYC court cases are held here.
Here I am near some great public art. It is in City Hall Park and is done by the known artist, Sol Lewitt. This piece is called "Splotch." I really like all of the colors!
