Skywatch Friday New York Skies

Since this weekend was my... I think 4th trip to NYC, and we were there for my brothers Birthday, I did not feel the need to do all the tourist things we have done before. I also cannot go there and not fall in love w/the amazing buildings. So, this week will be some of the different skies and buildings I saw there ---
first the sunrise from the airplane as we leave TX
1.

Then the first thing you do do when you get to NYC is have your first of many harrowing Taxi rides I caught these smoke stacks first (They appeal to me for some reason)
2.
Then one of the awesome bridges
3.
When we get to my brothers we see the most amazing sky you'll ever see indoors --he had this painted by a famous painter, when the lights are raised it is day
4.
and when lowered-- it is night -- it is so wonderful
5.

So I am just taking you along w/ me on our travels looking down the street after our dinner at thr French culinary Institute (see previous article)
6.
The next morning we went out shopping
7.
the skies changed a lot that day
8.
I truly love these buildings
9.
These ducks reflected a pretty sky on Canal Street where I bought a purse
10.
Little Italy where I had my first Canolli
11.
i had forgotten how the buildings have their own water towers
12.
We saw this unique "billboard" being painted on this building
13.

Computer trouble more NY Skies next week

What great pictures! I really like the building there in the 9th (I think it was the 9th) one. But the ceiling is very cool, I wonder how the artist did that.

Happy Friday! :-)

I can only say thank you for such a wonderful trip around Big Apple.
Ah, and the ceiling on that room is unique.

Since I'm originally a Brooklyn girl, I can say with some authority that these are great shots of NYC. Just a purse? No fake Rolex? The taxis are wild rides in the City, but the last time I drove through Texas 4 chairs fell off a pickup in front of me, and I had to swerve/swerve/swerve at 60MPH to get around them. You've got your adventures too. LOL.

What a change of pace, from the wide open spaces of Texas to the tall canyons of NYC. I'm sure you will have a wonderful time and will bring home many tales to tell.

Wonderful! It looks like you were having a great time in NYC. I visited there two years ago, no relatives there, and in 5 days we did lots of tourist stuff. Did a WHOLE LOT of walking.

You have some very interesting shots here. I esp liked the painted ceiling. That was awesome. I'd have a cramp in my neck from looking up at it all the time. Thanks for your kind comments on my blog.
