NYC Part 2

Our trip continues at the top of the Empire State Building. No he's not contemplating jumping, he just hocked a lugie. Can't take a Sneetch anywhere, they don't behave well.

This is the view looking west towards Jersey. Not really much to see, cuz Jersey kinda sucks.

Looking northwest...

Looking north. Central Park doesn't look so big from this view.

He just had to get his picture taken with Central Park in the background.

Another landmark, the Chrysler building, to the southeast. And if I'm not mistaken, the bridge and the smokestacks were the ones that appeared in the movie Conspiracy Theory with Mel Gibson.

The east view. I have no idea what's with the ugly, Hulk-green building in the foreground, but I personally think it's an eyesore.

The Sneetch jumped in the picture at the last second. This is actually my favorite cuz he's hovering over the city. He broke the rules numerous times, you're not supposed to be on the outside of the security bars.

Another east view. We had perfect weather the whole trip.

From here we wandered into Times Square and of course we have pics from there as well, but I'll post them tomorrow. It's not exactly nearby, but we walked there, stopping in a few stores along the way. The kiddie found the cutest black sandals with white polka dots at the Steve Madden store just a few blocks from the Empire State Building. It's actually one of the few purchases we made.

Considering NYC is supposed to be one of the fashion capitals of the world, neither of us would be caught dead in most of the crap they were selling in the stores. I'm thinking people in NYC don't own full length mirrors either because we saw far too many people (men, women & children) wearing clothes that didn't match. Some could have been tourists, but just from how they carried themselves and all, you could tell most actually live there.
