Top places in Virtual New York
(1) Grand Army Plaza
Grand Army Plaza is the starting point of Virtual New York. The plaza is placed at the intersection of 59th Street and 5th Avenue in front of the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, and opposite the south easternmost corner of Central Park. The idea for the plaza was first proposed by the sculptor Karl Bitter in 1898.
(2) Pulitzer Fountain
The Pulitzer memorial fountain ("Pulitzer Fountain of Abundance") was contributed by Joseph Pulitzer. A bronze statue of the Roman goddess Pomona is situated at the top of the fountain. This elegant fountain, modeled after the Place de la Concorde in Paris, consists of six shallow granite basins that decrease in size as they rise upward toward its center sculpture.
(3) Solow Building
The Solow Building is a 210 m high Manhattan skyscraper built in 1974. It is located just west of Fifth Avenue, sandwiched between the 57th and 58th Street, next to such prominent buildings as the Bergdorf Goodman department store and the Plaza Hotel. Floors above the 23rd floor offer a virtually unobstructed view of northern Manhattan and a complete view of Central Park. Joan Miro's “Moonbird” sculpture is located outside.
(5) Trump Tower
The tower is a reinforced concrete, shear-wall/core structure and was the tallest structure of this type in New York City when completed. A concrete hat-truss at the top of the building ties exterior columns with the concrete core. This increases the effective dimensions of the core to that of the building in order to resist the overturning of lateral forces (wind, minor earthquakes, and impacts perpendicular to the building’s height).
(6) Meet and Greet New York
Many Twinizens meet here in the corner of Central Park. Here you can see Augustus Saint-Gaudens' famous statue of William Tecumseh Sherman and Anna Hyatt Huntington's statue of the Cuban patriot José Martí.
