I recently visited NYC for the third time in 4 years, and I'll be back. We (myself and three friends, all of them first time in NYC) stayed at the Beacon Hotel, which was quite good value for money. I shot over 1700 pictures, even when the battery of my camera was dead on top of the ESB :(. I made a 'small' selection of those images...

I use a Nikon D70, with 18-70 and 70-300 lenses. All pictures are just scaled down, without any editing. If you want one in a larger size, please send me a PM.

Because of the 10-image per post limit, I'll have to make a couple of posts of it...

Wednesday july 27
After the ride with a stretch limo tot the hotel and checking in we had a walk to Columbus Circle and a couple of blocks of midtown, just to get a nice first impression of the city. It was a bit rainy, so not that many pictures today...

We first took the 3-hour cruise around Manhattan, which I also did during my first visit in 2001. In my opinion an absolute must for any first-time visit to NYC!

I'm living in Oss, a small town (about 1% of NYC:cool:) in the Netherlands, 150kms south of Amsterdam. Six hour time difference, so my last post was at 1:29 AM local time...

We rented a car and drove to Washington DC. I was a bit affraid of driving through the busy streets of Manhattan, but at 7:30 AM that wasn't much of a problem. Once on the interstate driving was very relaxed compared to the situation in Holland. Only those speeds limits...

From these pictures... Im going to assume you enjoyed your trip. Why? Because I enjoyed your trip too. And all I saw was the photos. None of the Subway?
Would it actually be possible NOT to enjoy a trip to NYC? But yes, we had a great time, and I'm already planning a next visit :)

I'll have a look what else I've got left...
