30th November 2006: New York

Well Jo reckons we covered too much ground today .. moaning about "blisters, bleeding feet, sneezing causing back spasms, blah blah ..." however I covered the same ground and didn't have any ill effects so I think it's just an age thing ;)

Anyway, ignoring the complaining I decided another trip up the Empire State building would be a good use of our free night, get some night pics of NY cause the sky was nice and clear, however when we got up there it was blinking windy ... making it pant wetting all over again!
Flatiron building  As seen in just about every TV show or  film set in New York :) Union Square Building art  just some art on the side of a building I liked, it's here for no other reason ... Washington Square  At New York University
