How totally cool would it be to slowly fly and take in the sights over Lower Manhattan in a brand new, four engine propeller TWA Constellation airplane like these folks did in 1953! by wavz13, on Flickr

New York has changed remarkably over the past half century. In fact, even over the past 30 years that I have lived here.

It really has been on a roll for quite some time. I wonder how long this can go on?
