I sure will re-size the snaps and post as soon as I get some free time and the mood!

Have a great DC trip! And if possible, make it to Shenadoh Park and Luray Caverns.
I am almost done with my NY trip. Will soon start new thread for DC trip. I actually completed DC trip before NY trip. I did go to Luray Caverns and that was one fantastic place to visit.

Unfortunately, i couldn't go to Shenandoh park. May be next time.

Default The last leg of NY

The last night at NY-NJ was a trip to remember. We wanted to have FALAFEL, and what better place than to have it at Mamoun's Falafel. Its a must have Middle-East food to have if you visit NY.

We started from La-Quinta at 1.30 am in night and decided to first see the skyline of NY from Hoboken. Its very famous park from where the view of skyline is just fantastic.

Here are some pics of NY skyline at 2 am in night from Hoboken near Stevens. We could not spend much time here for two reasons, it was chilly with wind blowing and where we had parked, the car ahead had some people who were having drugs and as we had our better half with us, we decided to leave asap.

P.S: All shots are handheld as i forgot to take my tripod in hurry.

Default Ray of hope while leaving NY

Somehow during my entire trip, i didn't came across any supercars on street. May be the timing was wrong. But while going to airport, i came across two cool cars that made my day.

The Jaguar XJ S v12 and a Gallardo. Here are some pics taken. I was in passenger seat so all safety issues were considered.

If you see the yellow sign, it says the road narrows ahead, so basically 3 lanes merged into 2 lanes so he was joining our lane.
