jeannena With nearly 53 million books, The New York Public Library is considered the fourth largest library in the world. NYPL began constructing in 1902 and opened in 1911. Construction was slow and it cost a total of $9 million dollars to build. There are 88 miles of book shelf space and 40 more miles of shelfs under Bryant Park. If you are a book reader I highly recommend taking the time to visit the NYPL and read your book of choice in the Rose Main Reading Room, that room is majestic, with 52-foot tall ceilings adorned with paintings. It's currently under restoration and closed temporarily. When it reopens, visit, take the time to disconnect and read a book. And If you like to people watch (like I do) the Library steps are a great spot to do so. -------------------------------------------------- 🇲🇽 La Librería Publica de Nueva york es considerada la cuarta librería mas grande del mundo con una colección de mas de 53 millones de libros. Empezó a construirse en 1902 y fue inaugurada en 1911. La construcción fue lenta y costo un total de $9 millones de dólares. Esta librería tiene 141.6 kilómetros de estantes y 64.37 kilómetros de mas estantes abajo del parque Bryant. Si te gusta leer te recomiendo que visites la Sala Principal de Lectura Rose, esa sala tiene unos adornos y detalles de pinturas majestuosos en sus techos que tienen una altura de mas de 15 metros. Por el momento la sala de lectura Rose esta bajo renovación, cuando la vuelvan a abrir tomate el tiempo de ir a disfrutar y leer un buen libró 5d

jeannena NYC rush hour. Waiting for a friend at Grand Central. - New York's rush hour is not for the claustrophobic, people pack up like sardines inside the trains during rush hour. The subway is the principal mode of transportation for the majority of the 8.4 million New Yorkers. I love the subway, it allows me to help lost tourist and tell them about secret non-touristy spots. It never gets old -------------------------------------------------- 🇲🇽 Hora de trafico en Nueva York. La mayoría de los 8.4 millones de habitantes en NYC usan el "subway" como su modo de transporte principal. Si te da claustrofobia es mejor esperar a usar el tren durante las horas de trafico lento, la gente se empaca como sardinas adentro de los trenes. A mi me encanta usarlo por que así puedo ayudar a los turistas perdidos, y recomendarles lugares no muy comunes pero igual de fabulosos 2w

jeannena If you are in the New York area I highly recommend visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art, better known to locals as "The Met". It's one of my favorite museums in the world. The Met is a "pay as you wish" museum. Meaning if you are on a budget you can gain admission by paying as little as $1 or as much as you wish. The recommended amount is $25. If you would like to pay as you wish simply go to The Met entrance and let the person helping you know. Here I am at the "Hatshepsut the female Pharaoh exhibit". Hatshepsut is the first important female ruler known to history. She ruled Egypt for two decades, and was a Queen that took on the title of a King. Later in her reign she assumed the supreme title of Pharaoh and ruled Egypt in that powerfully masculine role until her death -------------------------------------------------- 🇲🇽 Si te encuentras en el área de Nueva York, les recomiendo que visiten el Museo de Arte Metropolitano, mejor conocido come "El Met". Es uno de mis museos favoritos del mundo. El Met es un museo donde se paga lo que gustes. Lo cual quiere decir que si tienes un presupuesto apretado pueden pagar tan poco como un dollar $1 por persona. No les de pena pagar menos de los recomendables $25 dólares. Si deseas pagar lo que tu gustes simplemente déjale saber a la persona que te este ayudando en la entrada. Aquí me encuentro en la exhibición de Hatshepsut la mujer Faraona. Hatshepsut fue Faraona de Egipto por 22 años y asumió todos los atributos masculinos de su cargo excepto el titulo de "Todo Poderoso" hasta su muerte 3w

jeannena Greñuda feliz!

Yellow is such a happy color, it's also the most visible from a distance. Even some blind people can detect yellow. This is why it's often used for ambulances and emergency vehicles lights -------------------------------------------------- 🇲🇽 El amarillo no solo es un color muy feliz, tambien es el color mas visible en la distancia. Hasta algunas personas ciegas pueden detectar el amarillo. Es por eso que en algunos países los vehículos de emergencia usan luces amarillas

jeannena "Love wins, love always wins." - Tuesday's with Morrie

The Village, a neighborhood in New York City is the birth place of the modern Gay Rights movement. On June 28th 1969, the patrons of the Stonewall Inn fought back for the first time in history, against the city sanctioned harassment by the police department. It was illegal to serve Gay people alcohol or for Gay people to dance with one another. During the police raids, the lights would come on, and anyone dressed in drag and all women not wearing at least 3 pieces of feminine clothing would be arrested, along with the owners & managers of the establishments serving the Gay community. On June 28, 1969 patrons of the Stonewall Inn refused to be oppressed, stood up for themselves and ultimately the entire Gay global community. That night sparked what is now known as the Stonewall Riots
Gana el amor. El amor siempre gana." - De el libro Martes Con Mi Viejo Profesor
La comunidad conocida como "The Village" (El Pueblo) en la ciudad de Nueva York es el lugar donde nació el movimiento por los derechos de los Homosexuales. En Junio 28, 1969 los clientes de él antro Stonewall Inn se rehusaron a seguir aceptando el acoso de la policía que era sancionado por la cuidad. Era común que los policías hicieran redadas y arrestaran a quien encontraran vestidos en "drag"(travesti) o a las mujeres que no trajeran puesto 3 prendas de ropa femeninas. También arrestaban a los dueños y gerentes de los establecimientos, ya que era ilegal servirle alcohol a los homosexuales, al igual que era ilegal que dos hombres bailaran juntos. Por fin en La noche de Junio 28,1969 se defendieron contra la discriminación y le dieron comienzo a lo que hoy es conocido como el movimiento de los derechos para los Homosexuales mundialmente, los Riots de Stonewall

jeannena Up until 1825 Washington Square Park was a cemetery. To this day, the remains of more then 20,000 bodies rest under Washington Square Park. In 1797 it use to be a common burial ground for indigents and those who died during the yellow fever epidemic. Washington Square Park also houses the oldest tree in Manhattan, "Hangman's Elm", 310 years old. Although no public records exist, this tree is believed to have been used to execute people by hanging them on it. Records exists of hanging executions, on trees that were where the arch and fountain now stand. In 1826 the city closed the cemetery, bought the land and the square was laid out. In 1892 the iconic arch was built, to replace the original arch that was erected in 1889, to celebrate the centennial of George Washington's inauguration as the first President of the United Sates.
A condensed history of Washington Square park. It's magical at night time. So much life underneath it, but most of all above it
