I had a few days to spend in NYC and wasn’t sure what to do, so I started with a visit to the Empire Sate Building. Having never been there before, and not being a huge fan of heights, it was bound to be an adventure. Our hotel is only about 10 blocks away, so I dropped Daniela at her office, and headed that way.
It was a good idea to go just after 8am so the lines weren’t too long, and the sun wasn’t up too high yet. On the left, the shadow of the Empire State Building.
The view down.
The Chrysler building and Trump building (black box) in front of the Queensboro Bridge.
With that out of the way (way to many people up there) I headed off toward Central Park with the hopes of talking to some people and photographing along the way.
I had to get some birds in there…
I was initially on a mission to talk to the guys who watch the hawks through telescopes in the park. That turned out to be a bust, so I headed to the Children’s Zoo in Central Park. For the record, adults like animals too (most of us anyhow). It turned out to be really interesting, although not very large.
It was definitely a mix of cool/odd to be seeing all of these animals in the center of New York City.
There were an array of beautiful water birds.
Lovely day in New York City. I think Ill do it again tomorrow.
