Great pictures, looking forward for the rest.

But why did you choose a far way hotel, being your stay short? You must have wasted some precious times on those commutes into Manhattan.

I did not make the arragement (or pay) for the hotel, but yes, it was a little way out into the suburbs. It worked out rather well. Went into town in the morning and went back after midnight.
