Yes, the former head office of the HAL and the place many thousands left for your country to start a new life. In 1993 (after many years of becoming abandoned) turned into Hotel New York. They run a very large terrace which, even on a Tuesday night, was loaded. We had to wait for 30 minutes to get seated. And because of shortage of staff, the restaurant was closed and from 21.00 one third of the terrace wasn't being occupied any more but closed as well. We only went for drinks, if we wanted to have a bite as well we would have to wait longer. There's no sign of our economy declining because of soaring prices (10% inflation now), loaded seafood platters and bottles of wine in coolers like there was no tomorrowWow, beautiful building, as well as picture Frans ! 😀
Last time we got the other side of the coin which was modern, while
today we get a little more of the traditional side. It's a win win no matter
what you show to us !! 😎😎And have to say this building here today is
incredible, or really incredible. I mean the architecture alone, as well as
shapes are so nice it's not even funny. ..Seriously, it's like a town hall,
meets a cool college, or even castle. But it is, or was actually the cruise
line's buildng right?! ..It's really something to see, and must be a joy
to see every day there.
I'd just be hypnotized by the clock towers every day. 😊Not only seeing
if my watch was on time, but enjoying the fantastic look of those alone !
Man oh man, and they even look like they could be bronze, or copper
by the looks of the neat green. ..Have to thank you for the great pic !!!
