New York, 18-22 May 2013.
Wall Street—that’s where the money is.
US armed services recruiting station at Times Square.
Remember Forrest Gump?
Times Square on a rainy afternoon. Nevertheless packed with people.
Central Park. It’s huge.
“Friends” house in West Village. The interiors were filmed in a studio, but this is the exterior of the house Friends supposedly lived.
This reminds me of Marble Arch.
A protest against President Obama right on Wall Street.
New York Stock Exchange.
They built huge pools exactly where the twin towers once stood.
Around the pools they have all the names of the 3,000 people who lost their lives in 9/11 terrorist attacks.
They’ve also included the names of the six people killed in the 1993 terrorist attacks at WTC.
1 World Trade Center. Freedom Tower.
Looks like a painting, doesn’t it. Well, it’s not.
There are lots of interesting houses in Little Italy.
This one as well, I should say.
Homemade taste of Italy.
Little Italy in Little Italy.
And quite suddenly, Little Italy turns into Chinatown.
Even a Buddhist temple can’t do without advertising.
A court house in Lower Manhattan. Notice the little hot dog stand in front of it?
My friend told me to eat a hot dog in front of a court house like they do in movies. Bought one from the hot dog stand in the previous photo.
Statue of Liberty. You can take a free ferry to Staten Island and it sails right past it.
A view from the Empire State Building. You can see Central Park down here.
Another view from the Empire State Building. This time to the south, to the financial district.
Empire State Building.
Just a fire truck.
Dinner at Ulysses.
Borough Park in Brooklyn.
Looks like Mea Shearim in Jerusalem.
Another one from Borough Park.
Chicago photos coming soon.
