From State to State

So, since I've been back in the States, it's been a whirlwind of planes, buses, subways, and itineraries. I'm not sure it's a wise idea to come back from being overseas for so long to New York City, where culture shock will set you back on your heels. But I decided to make a few days of it.

When you're in NYC, you have to visit Times Square. It's like a rule.

America, the green country? Soon? I think not.

View of the city from the Jackie Onassis reservoir.

Very cool Guggenheim Museum. Kind of like an upsidedown layer cake.

Hudson River Park. Celtic designs in the pavement.

Part of my research for the sequel to The King Of York involved exploring some dodgy areas of the city. This was one entrance to really cool tunnel system.

For this trip, I stayed in Harlem. Harlem's come a long way in fixing itself up, and becoming a nice place to stay. But it still has its own feel and is very distinct from the rest of NYC.

Cool cathedral that I can't remember the name of.

Next to the cool cathedral that I can't remember the name of, is a fountain. Carved all about it is a host of animals, from giraffes to crabs. Very distinct.
