New York City

In no particular order, with no rhyme or reason,  I present to you: Pictures from Ang and Steve's trip to New York City.
First up: the 9-11 Memorial
The view from our hotel window
This is the new Freedom Tower they are building to replace the Twin Towers (also from our hotel room)
Other random photos from the memorial:









We also had to see the Wall St bull... right?
 and the stock exchange building - if these walls could talk!
Brooklyn:
Then we had to find the best pizza in NYC - and boy did we, in Brooklyn!

day dreaming about pizza
Brooklyn Bridge from the Brooklyn side:
Brooklyn Bridge!!!!




In front of the Brooklyn Bridge

Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge

Mango blossom 

never a good idea to eat something sticky that gets stuck in your teeth whilst walking across a bridge.
 Statue of Liberty:






Manhattan from Liberty Island





Ellis Island





Strawberry Fields



We made a quick night trip to Times Square - just because it's one of those touristy things that you HAVE to see in NYC.  I personally dislike this part of NYC - look at all the people!  yuck.



At the subway station, waiting for the train back to our hotel
 The Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge:









 Grand Central Station:



 Top of The Rock:




The NYE ball from the top of the rock

Empire State Building in the background
The Rock (the building we were just on top of) - where a lot of NBS shows are taped (the Today Show being one)


We saw a movie being filmed.  I can't tell you which stars we saw.
Steve about to eat a sandwich as big as his head 


having a drink on a rooftop patio in the middle of Manhattan (that's the Empire State bldg.)




Flatiron bldg.

9-11 Memorial at night, lit up.
 The oldest bar in Manhattan - McSorley's Old Ale House



On the plane going home... 


So there you have it.

These are beautiful pictures! That mango blossom is a lovely idea. And the enormous sandwich made me feel full just looking at it... bloody hell! Now I really want to go to NY!

Great pics! The memorial looks beautiful lit up at night.

For me, Times Square would be the best part. I love to be where the action is. :)

Your trip looked AMAZING. Except for Times Square... just looking at all those people stresses me out!
