My weekend visit to NYC!

Landing at JFK, for a while all you can see is ESB, kinda disappointing, then then skyline suddenly hits you....



Travelling through the streets to my hotel, the famous yellow cabs and wide avenues go by, just like on T.V.



Settled in, walking out of the hotel straight on to 4th avenue... along a few streets to meet the monster...



...then its smaller, prettier sister...



walking deeper in to the canyons towards the lights....





..moving along further, a crystal forms by the roadside...



...then all opens in to a quiet oasis.



Time to head back and challenge the monster, climbing to its shoulders and looking down on to its chlidren...



...and to a distant flock...



...the monsters spire reaching to the sun..,



Heading east, a stone monolith crosses murky waters..



...another relative rising to the sky...



...it's family crowd round, as if protecting a wound...



...they reveal a deep scar, a place where the mightiest once stood and fell...



...the scars run deep, but new life and hope stand with it...



...finally taking to the skies, the mother looks on, standing tall and strong.

Here's a few more pics. No particular order this time.

Times Square at night.



Next to the library, nice curvy building (times square tower up ahead).



Building off battery park.



Little demonstration going on...



...the police were there to keep check.



Chrysler from the top of ESB.



Yankee stadium with players warming up on the pitch



Last but not least, out the window to Jersey City



Hope you Like these too :)

Wow, looks like you had a fantastic trip, great photos! Don't think i've ever seen that tower in the Jersy City photo? Looks a bit like one that is in Hong Kong?

Thats the Goldman Sachs building Sy. Jersey City is just across the river from long island, that tower is more or less opposite the financial district. It is a really impressive tower close up, definately looks like 2IFC as you said.

Incredible pics and commentary Lance and I'm glad that you enjoyed the city.
We can always debate about the influence and importance of cities around the world but one cannot deny that New York City is one of our greatest cities.

I thought that island was called long island... just mahattan being the borough that was on it. My bad. And the shot of the yankee stadium was done just before a game from a chopper. was about $250 for the longest tour which goes down the hudson to the statue, then back up the river to the yankee stadium.
