New York City Photos

Yeah, it’s not on topic… but you know you want to see how I spent my spring vacation. So, here’s some pix for you!


The McDonald’s in Chinatown… the McD’s in Little Italy was not that interesting though…


Bridge for sale… cheap!


Anyone know what this building is? It’s in lower Manhattan. Its kinda weird looking.


The view from the South Street Seaport. About two blocks away from where this was taken I got to see my first street altercation!


The view from the Staten Island Ferry… looking toward Manhattan… as you can see the new WTC is coming along rather nicely


The SOL, also as seen from the Staten Island Ferry


A view of the WTC site from Broadway


The pilgrimage site for all hot dog eaters…


I found this to be funny… only in NYC would you see barbed wire and festive lighting. FYI, this is on Coney Island.


A lovely day to stroll Central Park…


Central Park is larger than it looks on a map, BTW…


The Belvedere at Central Park


Rowers in Central Park look out on the midtown skyline as they row, row, row their boats…


The new WTC building in close up from the 9/11 Memorial


The 9/11 Memorial… a view of the South Pool


A wider view of the WTC site


The 9/11 Memorial… a view of the North Pool


The 9/11 Memorial Museum/Visitor Center is not open yet. But, the buildings behind me made a cool reflection on the glass of the nearly ready structure.

So, all in all, a little snippet of my trip last week… since I know we have so many interested in urban settings, buildings and such I thought I would share with you. Enjoy!

I love NYC as well. I see you went to Wall Street, I have pictures from almost everywhere that you said you went in Manhattan. Wall Street, Times Square, the WTC, and Central Park were my favourite. 1 billion out of 5, Schully!

Great pictures. I've always wondered about going to New York City. It's on my list, but I have to admit it's a bit intimidating to a country boy like me...

Glad you all like these... here's a few bonus pics!

I encountered these along Broadway...

And that's no bull!!!

I was amused by this one in Little Italy...
(would be perfect for [url="http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=1819.0"]Monkey Island[/url]!)

In this view of the 9/11 Memorial, you can see the center of the pool where the water falls...

Across the street from the new WTC the reflection of the new building is captured on the side of the WFC buildings...
