I Love New York - a few photos - don't know what to chose. For the last one: Do their Mamas know?

One and three quarter days. 28 hours of walking, subways and looking.
Oh I had such fun!














MOMA: Detail of "Dynamism of a Soccer Player" Umberto Boccioni 1882-1916

"Pressure" by American Artist Robert Longo born 1953



I wandered up to the guards: "What is special about this building?" I found out!

1. I love vising NYC.

We'll be going there later in June for our grand daughter's first birthday. There is always a photo op around every corner.

I'll have my cast off by then so hopefully Ill get some good pics.

These are great shots. They capture NYC very well.

3. A very nice slice of the Apple Mira...

I love the subway reflection shot. The Times Square photo - ah yeah that's New York
My old job was in the Times Square area - 43rd and Bway. You saw for yourself that there is always something interesting just around the next corner. Great photos!

4. Thanks, my New York friend.

I thought of you again. And looked at guys wondering: Is that Johnny Noshoes?
I took sooooooo many photos. Went to the reflecting pools and reflected. Strolled in the park. Saw Strawberry fields near the Dakota.
Top of the Empire State. More photos.
I think the subway shot is one of my best, so I'm glad you like it too.

8. Ha!

thanks for the link, someone asked me about the topless women in a private message, and all I could say it was not a big deal, the cops were unimpressed as well.

About the lobby - here is some information. The little video gave me insights. But I could not locate the designer of the gorgeous plaque.
Yet.

For the last shot. A nightlife photographer that I know, Holly Van Voast, recently won a long running fight she had with the police about being topless in public, so now everyone in the NYPD has gotten the memo that women are free to go topless without harassment from the police.

11. Great pictures.

I really like the subway one with the reflections and repeated patterns, and the tattoo one. Both very interesting perspectives.
