New York, NY, beacon and other view

I'm back - with lots of pictures to weed through. I'll post some this week in chronological order, beginning with my arrival in New York City on Thursday night. Remember - you can click on the photos to enlarge and see more detail.

- The flight was delayed and so I was around 10pm getting into Manhattan on an unfamiliar shuttle. So having been dropped off in a spot in which I couldn't get my bearings, I asked for help. A very nice lady pointed me in the direction of East 43rd and 2nd Avenue. This familiar landmark was like a beacon lighting the way.

- The view from inside the apartment, where sister, niece and niece's very nice husband waited with dinner.

- The view from the other side of the apartment of Tudor City. I love that rooftop garden you can see there and have never seen anyone in it. It was lovely to sleep in a little on Friday morning and play with a very charming 16-month-old little girl who was sleeping when I got in the night before.

While you were there did you see one of those pay toilets on the NYC streets and photograph it. I just read about them recently. It sounds like you had a grand time.

Sounds like you had a lovely trip, I look forward to seeing more photos soon.

Was it raining in the last shot?

I <3 NYC. I know it's cliche, but I REALLY do. I'm jealous and happy for you at the same time.

Welcome home Lynn! Looking forward to your photos and stories...Sounds like having them wait with your dinner and playing with your niece would be truly a highpoint!

What amazing night shots, Lynn! And if I had a rooftop garden you'd never get me off it :)

Glad you had a lovely trip!

WELCOME HOME. I love the pictures and your comments about New York. You ought to remind people to click on your pictures. I could really see the garden when I clicked on the last picture.

That's a pretty impressive landmark to follow and again, a stunning picture. I look forward to seeing more:~)

OMG, two nights ago I was inside a restaurant with views of NYC and thought how wonderful it'd be to visit. Lucky you! Your photos are beautiful!! Can't wait to hear/see more.

Great night pics!

Great city pics of the Chrysler Building! Love that art Deco light display- a great beacon I've seen from afar myself on my drive thru a decade ago.
I Imagine I'd need a roof garden with all that concrete around, to keep from going crazy.
Sounds like a good visit with a Little One, n a grand pic adventure vaca for your readers coming up!
Glad you're home safe.

Granny Annie -

I didn't see a pay toilet - hmmm, otherwise I'm sure my sister would have gladly paid.

I did have a grand time.

Joe -

It was raining, but it was also taken through the windowpane, which gives it a slightly fuzzy look.

happygirl -

I love it, too. :)

lg -

That late evening walk with my suitcase was a little freaky, but I never encountered anyone who wasn't nice.

Talon -

I know - I'd be out there with a cup of coffee every morning.

Sara -

I'll do that next time - good suggestion. I"m glad you like my pics. :)

Lynn said...

Ily -

I adore it there - I miss it already.

Riot Kitty -

I like that one from the street the most. :)

Snaggle -

That little one is breathtaking in her beauty and personality - I can't wait to watch her grow up.

Glad you had a great trip and back safe. I've been in and out of town a lot the last few days and will be more this week. But I'll try and keep up.
