Thanks, Christos! I'm still building the thread, and I have a ways to go. The New York moderator JohnFlint1985 was my host, and he showed me more of New York in one day than most people would see in a month. I got a lot out of this trip because of him, and I think I was able to do the city justice in one weekend.

Are you sure that is their world headquarters? I thought they were based in Charlotte, NC.

Wow! Looks like you're right. Thanks for the clarification. I thought they had moved their headquarters there.

It's nice to get some support from the Miami forum in here. Our group doesn't seem to move around much to other parts of the website.

Just terrific work, Q, and I'm so glad you had a good time in the big town! Wish I had known...it's just 90 miles from here.

A lot of those shots really capture the essence of just how NEW much of the Manhattan skyline really is. It' been dramatically altered in recent years and continues to evolve.

I'm going up again next week (mostly around Brooklyn) and never tire of the place.

Again, GREAT stuff my friend!

Thanks, Spell! I thought of you, but I had already made arrangements to tour the place with JohnFlint1985 of the New York forum and wasn't sure how I would divide my time between the two of you in one short weekend. Yes, New York continues to evolve. Just when I think the city couldn't be any more than it already is, it finds a way to become more than it is.

Parting Shot!

I hadn't planned to be flying out of La Guardia last Sunday evening. The NYC Airporter that would have gotten me to JFK on time was full by the time I got to the stop. I had to take the next one and missed my check-in time by the time I got to the JFK. I missed the last flight to Miami leaving JFK that day. I went to the American Airlines resolution desk and there was a flight for Miami leaving out of La Guardia at 8:00 pm. I was placed on standby. NYC Airporter took me over to La Guardia at no extra charge.

It was kind of a treat because I had never been to La Guardia before and didn't know you could see Manhattan from there. By the time we were ready to board, there were 15 people on standby, but I was number one on the list. The flight was late and we stood on the runway for a good hour before takeoff because La Guardia was so backed up, but after takeoff, we took a flight path where we circled around and flew right over Manhattan. I had never seen Manhattan lit up at night from the air. That was real treat! Time Square was as bright as a forest fire!
