42nd Street at Dusk, NYC

In 2004, my wife and I took a trip to New York to visit her dad.  While we were there, we took a couple days to explore Manhattan.  My wife, growing up on Long Island, had been to NYC many times.  It was my first trip.

This photo was taken at dusk from the corner of 8th Avenue and 42nd Street as we made our way back to catch the train to Long Island.  I like the colors and the hustle and bustle of 42nd Street.

Much has changed in the fifteen years since our visit.  Loew’s Theatre, the left, and Empire Theater, on the right, are now Regency and AMC Theaters.  Villa Pizza, under the Chevy’s sign, is still there, as is Madame Toussaud’s.  Personally, I’m not a fan of the consolidation of small independent businesses into huge corporations.  I value individuality over chain stores.

I’d love to visit Manhattan again, but we’ll just have to wait and see what the future has in store.

Manhattan

This photo was taken in 2004 from the Circle Line Tour, a sightseeing cruise around Manhattan.  It was my first trip to the city and I enjoyed our visit.  Of course, New York City has so much to see and do that one could make many trips and never see it all.

We did most of the touristy stuff- Juniors Cheesecake in Grand Central Station, Oysters at 42nd Street Oyster Bar, MOMA, Central Park, the Delacorte Clock, and much more.  It’s a wonderful city with much to offer.

Brooklyn Bridge

I took this photo of the Brooklyn Bridge while taking a Circle Line tour of Manhattan in 2004.  The tour allowed for unusual perspectives.  In this case, it’s a view of the bridge from below, with the Manhattan skyline in the background.
