We didn’t get to do everything we wanted but thanks to the lovely people at from NYC & Company we were given media CityPASSES. They were very helpful in the Visitors Centre and can provide you with a useful Visitor Guide with all that you need to know. You can contact them via their website at www.nygco.com.

Much of the time we were just walking around, taking it all in. Strolling down Fifth Avenue, Soho, Time Square, shopping, eating. Such a fantastic city with so much to see. This is going to be more of a photo blog post. Don’t need to say much else. If you want more information on where to shop or what to eat (especially with teenagers) then check out some of the other more specific posts I’ve written.

Best iconic photograph I took:-

You must go to the top of the Empire State Building. We went to The Rock in the Rockerfeller building too and although that’s worth seeing for the history and art deco aspect, I think the views are better from the Empire State Building. Although there is glass at the Rock rather than fencing which makes a difference – especially if you were filming! We chose a good day. Some very clear views of the city. Doesn’t it have more water than you think?

One World Trade Centre rising from the ashes here:-

Statue of Liberty:-

We even got to meet King Kong!!

Mother & daughter on tour! How can she make me look that small when she’s only 15!

Also really loved going to the Museum Of Modern Art – very cool space and great cafe. We saw a 9/11 exhibition which is in my 9/11 post but lots of fantastic art to see obviously:-

and a Lucien Freud exhibition:-

Same goes for the Guggenheim although I didn’t take any pictures.

Strolling around different areas of the city:-

Grand Central Station:-

Building where John Lennon was shot:-

Exact place where he was shot:-

Central Park:-

Night scenes:-

Just all fantastic.

  1. It looks amazing. It’s somewhere I’d love to go. As it happens Andy had a dream last night that we were in New York. Maybe for my 40th …

  2. Very cool photos. Your girl is one long drink of water isn’t she?

  3. Nice, nice photos! NYC&CO is great, too.
    CityPASS has recently launched a new travel community called City Traveler and we’d love it if you have time to visit and post tips, advice or anything related to NYC in our Forums. http://www.citytraveler.com. Take a look around and let us know what you think.

      It looks great – but just tried to post my latest stuff on NYC and the photos didn’t come out – not sure how to sort that out?
