Somebody stop me...

Look! Even more pictures from New York! Because no one's ever photographed it before!

Fifth Avenue, Christmas Day. I wish I had a better shot of that big snowflake hanging over the street. It was really pretty all lit up at night, too.

The Brooklyn Bridge... and...uh... other bridges. The Manhattan and the Williamsburg? Can that be right?? That's what my map claims, anyway. Picture taken from the Staten Island Ferry, which, by the way, is the best freebie in New York.

The fountain outside what was the legendary Plaza Hotel, which is being turned into condos. Pheh.

Central Park, yet again. Told ya I spent a fair amount of time there.

It was pretty dang cold on that ferry! (Let's see how long I can keep this picture up before I'm urged to remove it by my friend John...)

oh yea, I want pictures of all the knockoffs and pashminas, also I really like that picture, the one with the snowflake.
I saw that the traffic light is green and I immediately starting thinking about the symbolism of it.
uhhh, someone was analyzing text in english class today! haha

Wow. The Plaza's going condo? Man, that sucks.

That's where STBEW and I were staying when I proposed to her.

And then we had cocktails at the Top of the World.

All are as gone as the marraige.

I don't know why I know this, but I just do... when I was young, oh around 9 years old or so, Pier 17 was a relatively new hang-out spot. It had good shops, nice restaurants, and a lovely view. And my parents used to take us down there all the time. That's where my dad taught me the bridges. From Pier 17, you have a very clear view of the east side bridges. Closest is Brooklyn. Just north of that is the Manhattan. A bit more north is the Williamsburg. And waaayyy in the distance (a good 5 miles north, I'd say) you can just make out the Queensboro bridge.
