USA - New York City - My first drone pictures ... :)


Just joking. I don’t have a drone and am not going to buy one.
I simply took the elevator to the 102nd floor of the One World Trade Center in the Financial District in Manhattan.

The high-speed elevator (to the top in 60 seconds) gives you the feeling in your ears as if you were on a plane while taking off or descending.
If the spire is included the One World Trade Center is the tallest building in the US: 541 m. or 1.776 feet.

An advice: If you want to see NYC from a very high level, then do it on the first clear day of your visit.
You never know how the weather can change. It makes no sense to go upstairs on a rainy day or when the top of the building is hidden in the clouds.

The main photo shows from left to right the Williamsburg Bridge, Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge.
At the other side of the East River you have Brooklyn. At this side Manhattan.

These photos were taken through glass.
I couldn’t exclude reflections of the interior space in the glass.
