  • Respectable skyscraper, is basically a normal office building. Just in front of the entrance and fountain, easier to use something to meet a beautiful Fountain. Surrounding office buildings are splendid, differentiation and other building and then kinda long I think.

  • Architectural historians will tell you this is a landmark building, a pioneer in the glass-and-steel era. Come and form your own opinion, but to me this is just plain and ordinary. It has been copied ...  more »
  • On Park Avenue this New York building by Miles Van der Rohe is a glass box design with slender bands of bronze cutting through the smoked glass. Modern design and inside is the Four Seasons restaurant...  more »

  • Every architect student should visit to see the quality of craftmanship taken by Mies in the building.
  • The older I get, the more I like it. It's a perfect example of how the Miesian paradigm, when executed well, has a formal integrity that is deeply pleasing. The seams at the corners of the building, for example, are marvelously designed and built.

  • My favourite example of modern architecture. Maybe the jewel of Mies. Seems like a little skycreper, but the secret is in the simplicity of the proportions, the glass and stell facade, the water pools.
  • Masterpiece by Mies van der Rohe!

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
