We stopped off in New York on our way home from Miami. In hindsight we should have stayed more than 2 nights, but even so we had a great taste of the city that never sleeps.
The city is fast-paced, more so than many other cities. It is at once exhausting and exhilerating. We resorted to a tried and tested favourite of a sightseeing bus-tour to get a glimpse and feel for the place. Being able to hop on and off the bus we were able to get around the city without losing our bearings. For a break from the busy streets we had a bycycle rickshaw ride around Central Park from its southern side to the Bow Bridge and back.
Photography can be difficult here, most of the time you have to be content with capturing parts of a scene as with the skyscrapers it's impossible to get the whole street-scene in one frame. Hopefully these shots capture some of the scale and excitement of the place.
I now realise that a return trip is a must to sample more of the experience that is the Big Apple.
