Big cities are usually not our favoured place for a holiday 
but we have always wanted to see New York. 
We arrived late in the afternoon and it was dark by the time we checked into our accommodation after more than 36 hours transit so it was an easy meal and off to bed for us.

( accommodation for 14 days at The Wellington Hotel - terrific !)

Next morning we set out to get our bearings so headed north a couple of blocks to Central Park and a leisurely stroll to wipe away the cobwebs. 
We were joined by lots of others with the same idea.

We followed pathways round corners and soon were a little lost 

but eventually arrived at The Boathouse in time for lunch.

It is no wonder New Yorkers love this beautiful park.

Times Square was a few streets south so we paid it a quick visit.

Been there, done that !
( best seen at night )

Next on the agenda was the Empire State Building as the weather was fine and sunny.

The art deco interior was very impressive and the view was MAGNIFICENT !

My favourite building was the Chrysler building with its pretty spire.

We had the opportunity to have a look inside later in the week and it certainly lived up to the exterior.

Later in the week we went to the Top of the Rock - at the Rockefeller building. 
Having first purchased a ticket we booked to go up in time for sunset on another fine day.

The sunset was magnificent and lasted for ages

yielding many wonderful photo opportunities for The Photographer.

Of course we visited this lady...

very impressive she was too !

More adventures to come !



  1. Fourteen days in New York City? Tremendous. That gives you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to really get to know that unique place. Congratulations to your Tony on his smashing achievement. Excellent pictures. Maybe I should enter a couple of photography competitions myself.

    P.S. If you see Donald Trump please tell him that I think he is a most unpleasant fellow. (I was going to say something else!)

  2. Thanks for commenting YP, it is getting a bit lonely here.....and yes you should have a look at that photography competition. Your photos are lovely . Tony is looking at a couple of new ones in the run up to the IPA competition next year. Good excuse to go back to NYC !
