- Subway Exit to Columbia University
- Entrance to Columbia University. I like the old entrance (in the 60s and 70s) better because there were no police guards there.
- Old Library for Ceremonies
facing south at the western side of the campus mall. There is a huge
portrait of Dwight Eisenhower in this building. He was the president
of Columbia University from 1948 to 1950, after the retirement from the
army and before becoming the first NATO commander. He had connections
with New York's financial circles, and raised tons of money for the
University. I took a photo of the Eisenhower portrait there during
my earlier visit, and I hope to post it here when I find it. I was
not allowed into the building when I went there in March of 2009,
because the board of trustees meeting was being held there.
Eisenhower did many things for the United States and for the World. Not many people seem to know that he redefined the role of university presidents: to bring in money.
- Front Steps are for student gathering and relaxation.
- Present Library facing west on the easter side of the mall.
- Street Sign at Broadway and

- Carnegie Hall on 57th Street
between 6th and 7th Avenues. Carnegie Hall has
a very rich history. These days, main music events take place

Not everybody in this hotel is a king or president. I had a
photo with a group of fun-seeking young people.
- Convenience Cafeteria near the Hotel. It is generally agreed that restaurant within the hotel is unreasonably expensive. Let the presidents or king eat there, but their bodyguards eat at outside cafeterias.
- Marilyn Monroe's Subway Grate is one block north of the Lexington Avenue entrance of this hotel. I am standing here with two ladies from Croatia. They became very happy when I told them about Tesla. To them, Tesla was a Croatian, while he was a Serbian to Serbians.
45th Street and South
- PanAm Building (used to be),
seen from Park Avenue North (1975). PanAm was once America's

to host trains coming into and going out from the New York City, but it
provides many other services.

- The United States Mission to the United Nations across the street from the UN main building. People say this and that of the American influence on the world, but the United States still plays the dominant role in this UN organization.
- 335 E. 45th Street. At this location, there used to be the main office of the American Institute of Physics and American Physical Society. This building is now for the Korean mission to the United Nations. The Korean government was set up according to the UN-mandated election held on May 10, 1948. In 1950, the United States sent troops to Korea according to UN's Security Council resolution. The Israeli government was set up in a similar way.
- The United Nations is the most important peace-keeping and humanitarian organization. When foreign students come to New York, the UN Plaza is the No. 1 place to visit. I had a photo with a group of Indian students in front of the UN building. I asked them from which region of India they came from. They said Assam. I said a rainy place. They became very happy with me.

a hotel on this street where many Korean tourists stay. They like to
use Lincoln Continentals for their taxi services. They are OK. Since
they don't come to New York often, they like to be treated as king,
presidents, or capitalists while there. The taxi fare is not bad. It
costs $40 to go to the Kennedy Airport from their Koreatown, about the
same as for yellow cabs.
- Hotel Radisson Martinique. This
is one of hotels on Koreaway where many Korean visitors stay. There are
also many non-Koreans. I am with an Egyptian family in this photo. This
hotel accommodates airline crews from many different countries. In the

waiting for their bus to the Kennedy airport. I ask them whether I can
have photos with them. They always say YES. Let us look at some of them.

- Korean Airlines (2004). When
they come to New York, these Korean Airlines ladies used to stay in this hotel.
Since they were in the Koreatown, they used to enjoy their good times.
Alas, the company thought too much good time for them is not good for its
business. Thus, the Korean crews are not accommodated at hotels far away from
this prosperous Koreatown.

to stage peaceful protests.

- The Law School on the southern boudary of the Washington Square Park.
- The Entrance to the Law School is quite impressive.

- University Store three blocks east of the Park. These days, students are good consumers these days. When I was a student (1954-61), I was like a prisoner.
- The Physics Building is also three blocks east of the Park. Physics buildings are not stylish in any campuses, but that of NYU appears to be very ugly. This is the name of the building. This building alo carried the NYU flag.
- The Natural Science Center is next to the physics building.

two restaurants in Little Italy.

- Another Italian Resaurant across the street owned by her niece.
- Statue of Columbus. Italians are very proud of Christopher Columbus whose statue is at the Columbus Circle near the south-western corner of the Central Park. Some years ago, Italians in New York became angry at their city government, and had a demonstration at this circle.
