Highlights of New York (1)
This will be the first of three posts presenting some of my favourite images from our recent trip to New York.
In Times Square, everything is back-lit or surrounded by bright lights.

In my first trip to New York a few years ago, a friend and I would spend plenty of time on the second floor of this McDonalds, seated by the window, watching people pass through Times Square. It’s a great people watching spot, and the milkshakes aren’t bad either. On this trip, I only got to watch from the outside.
Letting off steam in Times Square.

There’s usually a large police presence in Time Square.

There are lots of transport options in NYC, even a water taxi.
The lady liberty herself watching over Manhattan. You can see the construction of the new buildings near the 911 memorial already standing out from the skyline.
There were beautiful skies on the day we took a trip to the Statue of Liberty Monument. Blue skies and wispy white clouds.
Looking up at the statue itself. In previous trips I have been able to go inside the base of the monument but due to renovations the monument itself was closed.
And the view looking back at Manhattan from Liberty island.

More highlights of New York coming soon.
