New York City Photo Tour - Thursday May 17th, 2012

From London to New York a beautiful day for a cross country drive.  We arrived into New York City just before 7:00 p.m. this evening.  Traffic was a little heavy as we approached the city, but slow moving made for great photos out the bus window.

After check-in the group had the evening to do some exploring, a few joined Dave and James for a walk to Time Square which happens to be only 10 blocks from our hotel.  It was a fun evening just walking and exploring the many interesting sights and bright lights of the city.

Tomorrow we start our morning with a visit to the 911 Memorial, followed by Battery Park, some riverside photography and then some free time in the afternoon.  Tomorrow evening we will take our motor coach and head over to Brooklyn for some night photography of the New York City skyline.

That’s it for this evening, we are back in our hotel relaxing after our journey today and ready to get out and explore more of New York tomorrow.

Good night form Dave, James and the rest of the Photo Trekker Photographers in New York City.


Claudia catching a few shots out the front window of the coach as we approach NYC.


First view of the New York skyline as we approached the Lincoln Tunnel.  The tallest building in the centre of the image is the new One World Trade Centre also know Freedom Tower which is being built on the former site of the World Trade Centre.  Now New Yorks tallest building at a height of 1,776 feet.


Another skyline shot from across the Hudson.


Lincoln Tunnel reflections as several police cars pass by.


Some Late Night Shoppers, Nancy Anne, Gale, Brian, Paul, and Sandra checking out the window displays around the corner from our hotel.  Notice the Late Night with David Letterman studio's in the background.


Great reflection of the city lights in Times Square.

Since we are in the USA a fitting last image for the evening.

So jealous!!! I could live in NYC. Great shots. Jamie, have you had to bail NA out of jail yet? 

Looking forward to your impressions of B&H. Remember it's closed on the Sabbath (Saturday).

Keep an eye out for Sting in Central Park. He's a frequent walker there and lives close by on CPW. 

Keep the photos coming!!
