Exploring New York City
The NYC seminar, The Contemporary Workplace, delved into readings on New York City and its evolution from a trading center to the mega-city it is today.
Here are some pictures of our walk through the Financial District. From the Charging Bull at Bowling Green Station, we walked along Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. We walked past the historic Bank of New York and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and paused by Zuccotti Park, the site of ‘Occupy Wall Street,’ during the Great Recession.
We also visited the Museum of the City of New York to explore exhibits such as ‘NYC at its Core’ and ‘CityScapes,’ an interactive lab where visitors are encouraged to envision and design the environmentally conscious and sustainable NY City of the Future.
