Questions to How Well Do You Know Manhattan?

Randolph Mase Blogging Tips 2

       Here are the questions to the Jeopardy! answers about “Manhattan Projects” that I posted last week:   

  1. About 5 million trees & shrubs were planted in this, 843 acres in Manhattan. – What is Central Park?
  2. Built over 13 years at a cost of more than $13 million, it spans the East River to connect Manhattan and another borough.  – What is the Brooklyn Bridge? [It was completed in 1883…the cost of the soon-to-begin construction of a new Tappan Zee Bridge across the Hudson River is more than $3 billion – it makes the Brooklyn Bridge look like a real steal!]
  3. In April 2012 the rising tower with the address 1 here surpassed the Empire State Building as NYC’s highest point.  – What is World Trade Center?
  4. One of Manhattan’s greenest buildings is the Times Square HQ of this publisher of Vogue & Vanity Fair– What is Condé Nast?
  5. James Renwick designed this Gothic Roman Catholic church; the twin spires cost $200,000 & were added in 1885.  – What is St. Patrick’s Cathedral?

       I got most of them (I guess I just don’t follow magazines enough – how did you do?

    I got 4 out of 5. And I haven’t been in NYC since a day in the 80s, after college internships in the mid 50s. I rely on NYC blogs like yours!
