On our last day in the Big Apple, we decided to rent some bikes and go through central park – something I’ve never done even though I’ve lived in the NY/NJ area all my life. We stopped briefly at the reservoir and I captured this photos. Yes the water was as green as depicted. But it wasn’t a bad green – sort of a tropical seawater type of green. I’m not sure if this is used for drinking in the city as I know a lot of their water comes further north in the Adirondack mountains.
Our hotel room in NYC had a view to the west as seen to the left. Our friends had a view of Times Square. But because of where there room was, you couldn’t see down to the street which was too bad.
Here’s a close up of cruise ships at port waiting to depart.
I finally made it to the big time – Broadway NYC! That’s me on the inset photo with the what shorts on. For those unfamiliar, there’s a large forever 21 billboard on Broadway across from the Marriot that displays a video camera of people walking by. It randomly “snaps” a photo of someone waling by and managed to grab me of sorts. Now I’m just waiting for the autograph requests… It may be a long wait I feel.
I managed to get a nice shot of Jessica Simpson on a recent trip to New York City. She seemed a little stiff. Actually she was a lot stiff as this was taken at Madame Tussauds wax museum.
Picture of the NYC Marriot Marquis from a recent stay at the hotel. We were spending some time with friends from out of town and we both stayed at this very nice hotel.
I attended “Billy Elliot” on Broadway over the weekend. It was a good show and recommended if you are interested in dancing or seeing good dancing, especially in young people.
