New York City
6-13 March 2004
[ Back to Main ]
Ground Zero - former site of the World Trade Center.
Wall Street - financial heart of New York. Billions are traded every day at the New York Stock Exchange. You can smell the money.
Times Square - actually not really a square. But lots of bright neon lights.
Madison Square Garden - NBA basketball for Knicks vs Celtics, and ice hockey for Rangers vs Penguins.
Brooklyn - looking across the East river, and the Brooklyn bridge.
Grand Central Terminal, and a dodgy subway platform...
The sights of New York
Central Park - people doing all sorts of things.
The Shops at Columbus Circle (that's what they're called).
Museum of Natural History - very cool for real dinosaur bones.
Chrysler building - my architectural favourite.
Soup Kitchen International - otherwise known as the "Soup Nazi". Also shown is the contents of the bag; the soup is mulligatawny. Last photo is of Tom's Restaurant, whose facade was used as the diner in Seinfeld.
Guggenheim Museum - Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece, and museum of modern art.
Lower Manhattan skyline - riding the free Staten Island ferry and looking back at the skyline and Statue of Liberty. Later on, I walked along the promenade in Brooklyn and looked across at Manhattan.
Empire State Building and subsequent views from the top.
South view, lower Manhattan. Day and night. The twin towers used to stick up right in the middle.
North view, towards Central Park and the Bronx. Day and Night.
North-east view, towards Chrysler building. Day and Night.
North-west view. Day and Night.
East view. Day and Night.
...and the rest.
Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge.
Madison Square Garden.
Upper East side from Central Park.
Panoramas. Taken as separate sections and then stitched together using panorama software. Photos will open in new window, use scrollbar at bottom of browser to pan.
