I made it into New York last night only a little late. Amid the rush hour of people leaving work, I checked in to my hotel and took a leisurely crosstown stroll to meet friends for dinner.

Here are some of the photos I took on my walk. I tried to choose things I’d seen many times, but rarely or never photographed. For example, the Empire State Building.

Old architecture is my favorite.

I love water towers! I took more than one picture of water towers, but am sparing you.

The Chrysler Building is my favorite New York City skyscraper.

Now I’m off to the Javits to register for BEA and actually begin my conference!
