View from the Empire State Building – New York

View from the Empire State Building - New York

Got up early to clear sunny skies, so I walked down with Mike to the Lincoln centre on the west side. Then back around the block and into central park, it was a nice little walk and I got a few pictures. We then met up with the whole group and walked through central park to the Guggenhein Museum. This was under re-development so looked very ugly from the outside but the inside was still open, it was better then last time but still a little disappointing. So I walked back into central park to get some photos over the reservoir. The whole group then walked down 5th ave to the Empire State Building (about 3 miles away). Due to the weather being so clear we could see for miles from the 86th floor. Again I took loads of photos.

Finally after a long journey I arrived at the hostel (west side YMCA) I was staying at for around 3pm. We walked down Broadway to Time Square and went to Ellen’s Stardust Diner for a lovely three course meal. Took loads of photographs of Time Square as the sun went down of New York City.

As usual I am up to my eyes in last minute packing, trying to decide what I need and what I don’t, but I thought it would be nice to post one last message before I leave for New York tomorrow morning. The flight takes off from Manchester at 10am and I shall be back in the UK come Friday morning. I will be sure to take as many photos as I can and document my trip as best as possible when I get home. Hope you have a great week and I will leave you all with the photo below that I took last April from Liberty Island looking towards New York City.

Yes, believe it or not this photograph was taken about 6 feet from my local bus stop. I got off the bus from college this afternoon and was walking home, and then I thought to myself ‘let’s take a photo’. I haven’t updated the site for nearly two weeks. I am currently finishing up a few important projects for college before my up and coming travels. So within the next few weeks and over Easter there should be a lot of photography / graphics posts. This photo isn’t very impressive but I liked the sky and thought that I might as well share this.
