I don't usually like mega-cities - but New York, I want to visit - it just has 'something'.

Thx! It's one of my favourites too.

Walking back to Times Square, this time in the dark.

My pleasure!

It's time to leave lovely NYC... but other fine places are waiting to be visit.
We take the Amtrak-train to Niagara Falls at NY Penn Station:

















Driving along the Hudson River. All pics taken from inside the train, so quality is not at its best...













Albany NY:



Changing a broken locomotive at Albany-Rensselaer train station.















Almost in Canada!

Railwaybridge over the Niagara River, the border between the USA and Canada.





Around Niagara Falls railwaystation.







Pretty vacant?







Let's stay optimistic and take the bus in to town...

















Fall's highest.







Okay I admit, that's not the beautiest part of the city.

Thanks for the pics. They are great shots though it is too bad you didn't get more pictures of Upstate New York. The trip through Upstate was more than 400 miles (600 kilometers) long.

The first suspension bridge is the Bear Mountain bridge. That is 40 miles north of NYC.

The steel rail road bridge is in Poughkeepsie which is 80 miles north of NYC on the Hudson River.

Then you have some pics of Albany New York, the capital of the state of New York. The tall white office tower houses various state offices including the department of health. It is part of a large office complex but that is the only building you got a picture of. It is the tallest building in New York State outside of New York City.

Then the picture above the words "almost in Canada" is part of downtown Rochester, New York. You were still 60 miles (100 kilometers) from the border at that point. Rochester is one of the old decaying industrial cities of Upstate and home to Eastman Kodak, Xerox, Bausch and Lomb among others.

Hey, thank you very much for the additional information!

Sorry I didn't post more pictures, but it's not easy to take good pics from a moving train . So most of them failed a bit. Near the border we also past Buffalo, but the sky was cloudy there and I was sitting on the wrong side of the train.

Gorgeous photos, as always. I like how this last set was very travel diary-esque.
