Let's bite the Big Apple!

After more than six long months in Paris it was high time to take my backpack somewhere in this vast world! The chosen destination: the city that never sleeps, pretty good choice for an insomniac!

Misc

A few pics on different places and people

 

Empire State Building

The highest building in NYC, it was before the Twin Towers.
Less than a minute to reach the top floor.

 

Election times

A few shots of Segolene Royal's last meeting; pascked with people, more than 40 000 but still wasn't enough for her to win....

 

NY thingies and funny signs

Just a few funny shots of a few typical NY thingies and a few funny signs... Guess my favourite one!!!

 

Brooklyn Garden and Museum

On ny first day went to Brooklyn with Carolyn. A beautiful blooming garden, with all different sorts of trees and flowers. Pertect time of the year!

 

The United Nations

On the east side of the city, a few blocks away from Time Square

 

Chrysler Building

The most magnificent building of Manhattan

 

Chinatown

The famous Canal St and Chinatown. Canal St goes from west to East and Chinatown in kind of in between. A sunday arvo, packed with people shopping for fresh (?) food and really cheap souvenirs.

 

Brooklyn Bridge

Linking Brooklyn, obviously!!! to the island of Manhattan. Built in the XIX Century and still standing, one of the landmarks of NYC

 

Ground Zero, ex WTC

Downtown Manhattan. The disappearance of NY's most famous landmark. Really emotional, especially when you have known the Big Apple with its Twin Towers... Can't imagine the cruelty of some people...

 

Miss Liberty

Just a short ferry ride away from downtown Manhattan, stands the mythical Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island. A symbol for the American Nation and a gift from the French, at that time I guess Atlantic relationships were in a better shape...!

Hey! I've always wanted to go to NY. How do you find the people there? What about the food? Spotted any famous people yet? Have you dance down Broadway? Have you tried to act Australian to see if you can get away with it? Is the Apple really that big?? ;)
Response: Hey! Just to make it short, waz awesome, people were awesome, the city was awesome and the apple is definitely big but still very 'humane'! Had a ball, should go there, it's really amazing!
Didn't act Aussie, except in pubs!!!! :) xxx
