Empire Pizza

Twenty Four

This was taken after we had been to the top of the Empire State Building. We were heading towards the Flatiron Building (see previous post). However, on the way be bought a delicious pizza from a 7/11 store. Not the Empire Pizza. It was delicious. We ate it in a small park with the Flatiron Building before us and the Empire State behind us. Perfect.

Another photo using the Nikon D610. Nothing fancy, just a holiday snap.

The Flatiron Building

Twenty Three

This is The Flatiron Building, originally the Fuller Building. It is located at 175 Fifth Avenue in the borough of Manhattan, New York City. Not the most obvious angle from which it is photographed. There are two reasons for this. [1] the sun was directly at me shining down Fifth Avenue so the light was not great for capturing detail, and [2] what’s wrong with being different.

As you can see, the sun was out. It was bright but a bit cool [but slowly warming up]. This was taken after we had been to the top of the Empire State Building.

Statue of Liberty

Twenty Two

I suppose almost every one recognises the Statue of Liberty. So this photo does not really need a title.

When we set of on the ferry it was quite hazy but warmish. But as the day progressed the temperature warmed up nicely and visibility improved.

Brooklyn Bridge

Twenty One

A view of the Brooklyn Bridge from a point of view that we don’t always see.

I wanted to focus on the cables and Manhattan. I might post one with the main columns another time.

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

Sixteen

Yes, I know that this is usually just called the Guggenheim.

We had rushed here from Ground Zero (we only walked around the outside because we were running short of time). As it was early evening and we hadn’t had time for lunch I was feeling hungry. There was quite a queue to get into the Guggenheim and mum suggested that dad and I stay in the queue while she pop to the main road which was next to Central Park and get some street food. It was worth it. My first chilli dog. DELICIOUS. Both dad and I loved them. Mum was really nice and popped off and got us another each!

Inside the Guggenheim, the building was very interesting. My dad is not too keen on modern art. I sort of understand what he means. Quite often we would comment, “I could do that.”

Broadway, NYC

Broadway, NYC

This is Broadway. Broadway itself is very, very long. This is the bit that most people think of. Where all the theatre shows and cinema films happen.

I loved Broadway. It was about 15 minutes walk from our hotel and we came here at least half of our nights in New York. I liked the lights, the buzz of the crowds and that many shops were open very late.

Both my dad and I took photos here. We brought his Olympus as neither of us wanted to carry anything bigger or heavier.

The View from the Rockefeller

Fourteen

I guess that this is quite a commonly seen view but it is the first time I had seen it for real.
