Photo Wednesday: Missing Manhattan

It’s been over a year since my trip to New York City. And looking through the photos I took (yes, quite a few hundreds), I started missing Manhattan. Especially Central Park. So today’s photo post is a way to track my steps on the streets of this wonderful, wonderful heart of NYC.

On the last day of our stay in NYC, we went on the Top of the Rock. Or the top of the Rockefeller Center. It was a trick our tour bus guide told us about. Cheaper than the Empire State Building, less time spent queuing, and you get the Empire State Building in your photos! Smart guy 🙂

Central Park from Top of the Rock

Lamp Post in Central Park

Central Park was definitely my favorite place. The only one we went to see twice.

Central Park

When in the park, you tend to forget you’re actually surrounded by skyscrapers. This photo perfectly depicts the contrast between the peacefulness of the park, the sensation of being out enjoying nature, and the modern buildings and busy streets of Manhattan.

Chariot Ride

Yes, it stinks quite a bit. But a ride like this is totally worth it.

Window Shopping in Manhattan

This was one of my favorite shop windows in NYC. Mostly because of the old photos they used to decorate.

Yellow cabs and sky-scrapers

And of course, yellow cabs, fashion stores and lots of people. So NYC!
