When American architects attempted to build tall structures in the late 19th century, they soon discovered that the masonry of the day simply wasn’t strong enough to support buildings that were more than seven stories tall.  That all changed when Henry Bessemer came up with a technique for mass-producing steel which could be used to support bigger structures.

How much money I need for my trip to New York City?

Let's talk about numbers… For this trip I need to raise $10 000. With this money I think I'll be able to buy plane ticket from Europe to USA and live about two or three months in the Big Apple. It's really big money for me…

What I will do in New York City?

I have a dream to live couple months in the Big Apple and write about my life experience in this blog. I want to feel real new yorker lifestyle and share my feelings with you guys. It would be awesome to make this blog New York City lifestyle journal where would be writing about real people life.

I don't know exactly when but I know that in future I'ill be there in the Big Apple. It would be awesome if I could spend 2014 summer in NYC. Everything is about money in this case. .

There is no place like New York City because…

I found this kinda cool song about NYC by Joey Ramone – New York City. It's a little bit weird but I like this song video clip. I think this video main idea is to show how many different people lives in NYC. Looks like all world fits in New York City…

By the way in this video is featuring local people and local celebrities. So, if you live in “Big Apple” you probably recognize a lot of people, and of course all neighborhoods and famous landmarks of NYC which are well known for everybody.

Sounds crazy to be real? But it's really happens in New York City every year. It's called “The No Pants Subway Ride”.

In my opinion it should be allowed to ride subway without pants only for girls and everyday.  What do you think about this event? Would you like to be part of this?
