Skycrapers in New York, USA

During my sightseeing with friend Ritz in Nuremberg, we happened to meet this guy from New York City. He said that he was stopping Nuremberg for a connecting travel to Prague, Czech Republic to attend his friend’s wedding day. He was also the best man of that said wedding. After some conversation we parted because we have to catch the train in going back home.

Don’t you know that New York is the most populous city in the United States. There are a lot of skycrapers in New York.
