Concrete jungles where dreams are made. I want to be a part of it. The first stop on vacation. 12 hours making the most of our MetroCard and our feet, covering nearly 30 km plus a “harbour tour” on the Staten Island Ferry. Since this was my first time in New York (other than once in 2005 when I took a Greyhound bus through the city in the middle of the night), we mostly kept to the obvious things, and did lots of sightseeing. (The only stop not pictured is the B&H Photo Video where I spent about an hour and the majority of my allotted budget. Photographers, if you’re visiting NYC and want to stay financially solvent, I suggest skipping it. It’s too awesome.)
Here are some of my favourite images from the day, including my trip on the ferry, various subway trips, Wall Street and Charging Bull, Trinity Churchyard, Ground Zero, The Met, 5th Avenue, Central Park, Strawberry Fields, the Dakota, New York Public Library, Grand Central Terminal, the Empire State Building, and, of course, Times Square. We had a Traditional-with-pepperoni at John’s Pizzeria for dinner, and after getting caught in an epic storm, capped the day with a drink and jazz show at the Village Vanguard.
I slept well that night. Enjoy.
