We’ll tour NYC and its structures that not just set world records in the categories like tallest buildings and longest bridges, but smashed them; in some cases creating categories that never even existed before. Hear of the fierce, competitive nature of the people involved and what lengths they went to, to reach world records. Hear about personal tragedies & triumphs. Along our tour we’ll pass great public art like The Real World with its collection of dozens of whimsical characters; the Fearless Girl & Double Check statues. We’ll view and talk about: • Beautiful buildings like The Oculus and Trinity Church • The graceful Brooklyn Bridge & five other suspension bridges • The Holland Tunnel’s fascinating vent buildings, with their dozens of huge fans that can combine to completely replace the air in the tunnel in just 90 sec. • Incredible new neighborhood, Hudson Yards, with six major new skyscrapers, all built over a working train yard • Beautiful Battery Park City Esplanade with views of Jersey City's ever-growing skyline • The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island • Lovely small parks and atriums • Scars from a terrorist attack 80 years before 9/11 • The Federal Reserve of NY Building with more gold than Fort Knox • Historical sites from colonial days to Occupy Wall Street • North Cove to see what fabulous yachts have stopped to visit
I am a practicing, licensed civil engineer that has designed and inspected bridges for over 25 years. I have worked on projects involving many of the major bridges and tunnels of NYC. I’ve climbed around, in and under some of NY’s most important structures as I’ve analyzed, rated and rehabilitated them. I have learned of the incredible human stories behind them; the ambitions, triumphs, tragedies and quirks. I’ve also come to love the great art of the city; from the museums and galleries to the public squares and walls; from the classic and inspiring to the whimsical and fun. Great art that is often right next to the structures we’ll be seeing! I love New York City!! Its amazing bridges, buildings, tunnels, parks, churches, zoos, gardens, monuments, history and art; and the human drama behind them. Let me share them with you!
