My Crosstown Constitutional
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!

Have a wonderful time!
Coming from the country, I find practically every building in Manhattan worth a double take. great pics.
Water towers on roofs make me think of old superhero comics.
Enjoy your strolls.
I'm having a great time. Appreciating a quiet evening alone in my hotel room after all the noise and people.
Your pictures are so pretty! I forgive you for standing in the middle of the street like a tourist.
I ended up not posting the middle-of-the-street one–made the Chrysler look like the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
