It goes from 30th St down to the Meatpacking District (~12th St). I'd highly recommend walking it from top to bottom. It only takes a half hour or so unless you get carried away with pictures. The north end gives you a good view of the Hudson Yards project. The south part however is my favorite part since it goes through several buildings.

Brooklyn Bridge park is great, however I kinda prefer it during the day. It could easily be combined with a walk across the bridge itself!

Hope you enjoy your stay!

Hey L.A.F., have a great trip! New York is such a great place, and you're lucky you have a few full days to explore. Take a ton of pictures, and of course, share them with us!

And yes, your feet may be sore at the end of the day, but the routes you layed out seem pretty manageable. Comfy shoes are a must! The last time I was there, I walked several miles in stiff old man shoes, and my feet were bright red for several days afterwards.

I have a last minute change to let you guys know. Tomorrow night I'll go to Rockefeller Center and Brooklyn Promenade on Friday. We'll probably do additional things several days a well between our main, loops.

On Friday, Heat Index is 108 degrees!

Hey guys! I'm in LGA awaiting my flight home right now. I took about 1,000 photos, and have about 750 keepers. I'll try to post each one with a caption tomorrow. I hope you guys will love them.

Awesome man!! Can't wait to see them. With 750 pictures, I imagine it will take you more then a day to upload all of them and it will probably take me twice as long to look at all of them Thanks in advance

I'll put 5 in every post, or 100 per page, to keep it quicker for me but not too slow for you guys. I actually have almost 900. I'll do it from my dad's office computer tomorrow afternoon in a few hours because it's crazy fast.

We actually visited several more places yesterday and Thursday including three Flatiron District, The High Line, Yankee Stadium, Washington Square Park, The Upper East Side, South Street Seaport, and Staten Island to cross the Harbor.

By the way, we're pulling into our driveway right now.

Sorry for such a delay, but pictures uploading to ImageShack right now! I'll do as much as I can before noon. My dad had to get clearance to use image hosting sites at his office so I had to wait until today.

Yeah, my home computer was terrible already, and then a few days ago it just died. I spent 39 minutes searching Google for a YouTube video and closed the Internet with a blank nonresponsive page left.
