Nah! I meant cars of interest you find on the streets.

Oh, I am sorry I misunderstood. I just clicked one of Lambo Gallardo. Will post pics of it soon. Apart from that, nada. Didn't find anything interesting apart from a Ferrari f430 which disappeared in a wink.

The statue of liberty from side holding the book.

The Empire State Building from Statue. I noted that from Empire State Building its very very hard to see Statue but it is not that hard to see ESB from Statue. Obviously its because ESB is very tall, but just an observation.

The Liberty store, a good store to shop. Also the place where we stay in the queue for pedestal.

Photos bring back memories. I stood on ground zero in 2003 on one of it's anniversaries. Loads of people mourning there. There was a septuagenarian who broke down. I asked him whether he lost a son or a grandson.
He said he lost his twin babies there. He was a carpenter who worked building the towers. And they were like his babies.
I was left speechless.

Nice snaps.

A few corrections from a native New Yorker if you dont mind

1. Brooklyn bridge connects Manhattan to Brooklyn.
2. The photo mentioned as Hoboken NJ is actually Jersey City skyline. The tall building being Goldman Sachs tower.
3. The bridge connecting NY and NJ is actullay connecting Brooklyn to Staten Island both are part of NY. Its called Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.

Carry on

Phase 2 : Times Square

We arrived at 33rd street and Broadway by taking PATH. just as you come out of subway, you are greeted with fantastic skyscrapers, most notably, the Empire State Building.

Here is some information about visiting Times Square for prospective members.

1. The best time to visit is after night settles in. That's when the Times Square is at its best. Superb lighting and crowd sets the mood for fun filled walk from 33rd street to 42nd street.

2. There are plenty of branded shops on this route that will keep you busy. The most notable shop is Macy's which has world's largest store at this cross street. It spawn an entire cross street as you will see later.

3. At any given time, there is immense crowd, for once i felt i was walking through the streets of Mumbai.

4. There is plenty to see at Times Square. Madame Tussuad's Wax Museum is worth the visit. Just to the right of MT Museum is Ripley's Believe It or Not. We went to Wax Museum but couldn't make it to Ripley's due to time constraints.

5. If you are planning to buy tickets for Wax Museum do take the ALL-Access pass. It cost $35 if bought off the counter, you can get good discounts online. It has 4 things included, the musuem, the scream, behind the scenes and Cinema 4D. All four are worth the money. The scream is not for faint heart people. It was fun and chilling at the same time. Cinema 4D was super. I would recommend you experience it once just to feel how different it is.

6. Plenty of eating options so you won't be hungry.

7. Don't miss out on taking photo at the red stairs. Its sort of mandatory.

8. Don't forget to wear some warm clothes as it gets chilly at night as wind is more at the square as it is in open area.

Hope this helps. Now to the photos.

Thanks for correcting. I realized the first error, but i was not able to edit it as 20 mins had gone by.

I was told Hoboken, NJ by my friend, so i pretty much believed him. Sorry for the error

Again, thanks for pointing out the mistakes. My bad.

Default Times Square 2

Some more pics of the times square.

Note the chevy camaro and hummer limo.

ps: on closer look, it seems resizing in irfanview has led to plenty of loss in details of pics. Don't know how to resize without losing quality. Any pointers?

Default Last Set of Times Square

Some of the last pics before we left the Times Square. Nevertheless over the period of 3 days, each night i managed to visit Times Square somehow.

The red stairs leading to Times Square is very famous. You can get fabulous views from there. This is the place where Crystal Ball falls during New Year.
