Despite Covid-19, some destinations, especially those in southern Europe, should welcome all vaccinated travelers without heavy restrictions. Vaccination against Covid-19 will not be a prerequisite to travel abroad this summer. At least in Europe. But having received the injections should allow, in some countries, to avoid restrictions, such as being placed in quarantine or having a negative PCR test. Tourists who have received both doses of vaccine will have to provide a proof to the local authorities, either beforehand via a form or upon arrival, with a vaccination certificate, or with a QR code. To have already been contaminated by the coronavirus could in certain countries give the same rights as a certificate of vaccination, but for a given period, by presenting a positive PCR or serological test.
New York is THE city of skyscrapers. There are almost 6,500 buildings and it's not about to stop. If buildings "grow" in height, this phenomenon is due to the cost of land and its scarcity.

The city went through a phase of intense construction at the beginning of the 20th century, which ended in the 1930s. Nowadays, New York City is the scene of a new wave of construction. The current trend is towards the diversity of forms and the break with the parallelepipedism of constructions of international style.
