View Full Version : Other things that make New York, New York...

April 14th, 2005, 08:19 PM
Coming from the UK from a citiy, about the size of, say, Trenton, NJ, I didnt not have nmuch experience of "urban" life. So I thought, every guidebook is covered with pictures of the Chrysler, ESB, Statue of Liberty and the usual tourist rubbish....

and I'm not a big fan of anything touristy. On a trip to discover the real New York, and what makes New York, New York..... My visit in Feb was great, i totally enjoyed jsut going everywhere with a Metrocard, it was wonderful.

Here are some pics that are a little beat of the track, but without these things, would New York still be New York??

NOTE: Use the back button (pics are big, 1 MB + for some) Also, sorry if the pics are really boring or cheesy, I loved every moment I was in NY, and every moment taking these :)
