Really enjoyed all the pictures. Great city, great skyline and old/new architecture.

NY é um cidade incrível, simplesmente deslumbrante e com uma densidade marcante

Thanks everyone.

Yes, the cosmetic quality of NY subway is appalling, but it's effective and works 24/7. It has to do with being very old (100 years)

Fantastic shots of a fantastic city. I hope to return to New York sometime as I haven't been there since before 9-11! You show amazingly just how diverse the city is, and the city's older buildings in particular, are very attractive. Some of those European'esque' buildings are gorgeous; what a shame that buildings just aren't built with that much care nowadays.

I do however think that classing a city as 'ultimate' is a bit premature, especially when it's your own. I agree that New York is the ultimate city for, say, skyscrapers or even in the whole USA but, worldwide, not.

Wow, fantastic photos! New York keeps surprising, even if you saw thousand photos. You can't get enough of New York.

I love the diverse buildings in New York, in Brussels all skyscrapers are the same. We don't have those beautiful buildings like the ESB, woolworth building, etc. I love NYC! New York is really THE city. If you think about skyscrapers, you think about NY.

Thank you. By including the word ultimate I intended to convey how this city's diversity encompasses, to varying degrees, traits of other great cities, not to pompously declare that it is better than all.

That is one beautiful ass that truly deserves being showcased in a museum 2,000 years after it was carved! She could sit on my face for an eternity!

Not the lexicon one would generally assume Robert Walpole to employ at his service
