New York skyline

I love New York! It is a fun, vibrant city with endless possibilities. I was there in March and despite some fairly oridnary weather I spent days walking the Manhattan streets rediscovering my favourite things.

I have to keep reminding myself to look up…the skyline is amazing.

Did you notice the temperature in the last photo? It was cold!

Don’t forget to look up when you are in New York.

  1. what a wonderful bordercrossing when combining the old church and the modern skyscapers. A builing that used to be the highest ins hidden now behind those towers of business and modern live.

  19. Uncover the historic South Street Seaport district and hear gripping tales of the port’s turbulent past on this historical walking tour of New York City. You will explore this seaside neighborhood, which blends the early days of sailing intrigue with the vibrant shopping and dining of present. Your knowledgable guide will show you sights and perspectives rarely seen by locals, as well as the hottest places to shop, socialize and soak up the Seaport scene!

  20. Hi Debra,
    Unfortunately I don’t receive your blog updates anymore so I drop in once in a while….love you photos of N.Y. My daughter and I were there in April and stayed in Lower West near 8th and 14th …..certainly handy to everything including the subway!.Also the High Line, a disused railway track reclaimed as an elevated, beautifully landscaped walkway which affords a wonderful rare view across the skyline for about a mile and half. Hoping you got to Eataly, an amazing huge restaurant right near the Flation Building in your photos above. It is not to be missed and is the closest one comes to Italy outside it’s borders! Definately not to be missed while in N.Y.!

    • Perhaps you could subscribe again. I went to the Skyline, but it was raining and miserable that day and the photos I took were useless. I went a few times to Eataly and enjoyed it a lot. I did a post in it back in March along with a couple of others on New York. You can see them if you look in the New York tips category.
