My NEW YORK City Cliche

My NEW YORK City Cliche
I enplaned to NYC last Friday the 13th for 4 nights via Toronto. By coincidence, I was assigned to a room on the 13th floor.
No untoward incident happened though except that I missed my connecting flight to NYC due to long line in the US immigration.
As I know that there might be some forumers who had uploaded similar photos so I added the word cliche.

I take it that the areas pictured are amongst the popular tourist spots - incredibly busy for night-time?

Nice shots! And I agree, it appears that you went to places that are too touristy. Hope you were able to visit other NYC sites that most tourists often miss 'cause they only go to TS, the Statue of Liberty and Rockefeller Center. Definitely coming back to see more of your pictures!

@oJane - those night shots are in Times Square on Broadway where the theatres are located and where New Yorkers celebrate New Year's Eve.
@Sarcasticity - you're right, besides the places you mentioned, I visited the financial district,Chinatown, Little Italy, Soho and part of Greenwich and the Central park as well..

I particularly like this set. Interesting to see pictures of the sub-way.
