The Big Apple

Statue of Liberty
Last week I was in New York city on business, and I managed to take time out for a sunset cruise of New York harbor, including (of course) a swing by Ellis Island and its most famous landmark.  My phone doesn't take great photos, but here is my best shot of Lady Liberty.  I had never sen her in person before. She looks darn good for her age!

Statue of Liberty

The bridges were pretty cool, too, and the skyline itself is beautiful. Because the streets are laid out in a much more uniform grid than cities like DC, there are places where there is a gap in skyline, almost like a canyon, and you can see all the way through the city. I didn't get any photos of that because my camera was too slow, but it was a neat effect.  So was the view of sailboats against the skyscrapers, which I did capture.

Not a bad shot. A Light in the Dark.

NYC, just got here this morning! Three bucks, two bags, one MEEEE! NYC! I give you fair warning. Up there, in lights I'll be!

Sorry, just got my Annie on. NYC is so dear to my heart. I truly don't think I could ever live outside of driving distance from it, even if it means I am eternally bound to pay for the privilege.

I don't go that often; it's just too damn crowded and too noisy.

I am in absolute envy - I deeply love New York (we try to get there often as my brother lives there, and my parents are there right now!).

Gustavo-- you like it more than I do, then. It's OK to visit, but I would not want to live there.

If I had the money, I'd definitely live there. Would hate to be there without money, though... not fun at all.
