I spent three days in New York City (two days traveling) this past week. As I mentioned in my previous post, my primary purpose was to attend a seminar at NYU Poly. However, in the other two days, I toured the city, went to a Broadway show, and climbed to the top of the Statue of Liberty. Rather than boring you with nonsensical narrative, I will let a few of the approximately five hundred photographs I took tell the story.
Strawberry Fields, memorial to John Lennon
Atlas at the Rockefeller Center
Helios (I think) and the ice rink at Rockefeller
Empire State Building
South Street Seaport
Staten Island ferry
The Peace globe which stood between the World Trade Towers and was damaged on 9/11; now stands in Battery Park
Trinity Church, featured in National Treasure
New York Stock Exchange
The future Freedom Tower
Westside Story at Palace Theatre
WWI and WWII memorial in Battery Park
The weather was beautiful the day I visited Liberty Island
The size of the Statue's face--it's actually pretty small
"The New Colossus" by Emma Lazarus
In the crown!
In Times Square
The M&M store
Polytechnic Institute at New York University--the seminar I attended here was the primary purpose of this trip
This trip was a great adventure. While I enjoyed the fast-paced lifestyle of NYC, I must say I was glad to return to the Pacific Northwest where I can see trees and grass and more than two square inches of sky at once.
