This was taken from behind the atlas statue at Rockefeller center. It's a unique perspective since you normally look at this statue from the street. Saint Patricks cathedral is the church across street.

vinramundo.smugmug.com As I was walking down Broadway, dodging the occasional sudden but brief outburst of rain, jumping out in front of me was the famed Flatiron Building. Love how it looks like the bow of a ship and the storm clouds add a bit of drama to the shot.

#UrbanJungle The color & the aromatic smell of the store Amazing building! I love NYC! Empire State view Flying over Central Park. I can never get enough New York. Nothing like a #weekendgetaway in NYC.  NYC,Amazing place😍 Empire State view on a snowy day at sunset #TroveOn - Old railway + killer design + art + green. Walk the Highline in Chelsea! Envisioned in 2002 and open in 2009, it is so big, beautiful and well executed... Don't miss it. A highlight of visiting New York City is standing beneath the bright lights of Times Square.
It was only made better by seeing it covered in snow. watching sunset from the 86th floor of ESB. breathtaking Nothing like Manhattan during a snow storm. Everyone loves Central Park in New York. It's an awesome place to catch your breath in a city that doesn't slow down. I spent some time there recently, in hopes of capturing some autumn color in the Park. As it turns out, there was a lot of it, and I was a very happy photographer that day! From http://nomadicpursuits.com/ The place to run on the weekend and sunset walks along the river are amazing. Although graffiti stricken, the Williamsburg Bridge provides more peaceful walk compared to the famous and crowded Brooklyn Bridge. The garden at Palma feels like a lovely Italian courtyard - - an oasis in the City. Great pasta and prosecco.
I found this place on an NYC Food Tour. Read more about it at: http://www.travelblissnow.com/secret-spots-youll-discover-on-a-new-york-city-food-tour/ Stayed late at the Rockefeller building The Cathedral of St. Patrick (commonly called St. Patrick's Cathedral) is a decorated Neo-Gothic-style Roman Catholic cathedral church in the United States and a prominent landmark of New York City. It is the seat of the archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York, and a parish church, located on the east side of Fifth Avenue between 50th and 51st Streets in Midtown Manhattan, directly across the street from Rockefeller Center and specifically facing the Atlas statue. Had no idea this place existed until I stumbled upon it on a stroll through Central Park. But I wasted no time getting shots from as many viewpoints as possible once I did discover it. As it turns out this is a popular spot for photographers. Lucky I found it then :-)
#StunningStructures 30 Rockefeller Plaza is an Art Deco skyscraper in the middle of Rockefeller Plaza in Manhattan. At 850 feet (260 m) high, the 70-story building is the 14th tallest in New York City and is a great place for capturing views at sunset (especially because it offers views of the Empire State Building).
To get this shot, head to the top of Rockefeller Center, known as Lovely day to see Manhattan Got to love Central Park in the fall

#URBANJUNGLE I just love this view! View of Manhattan and Hudson River, New York City from Empire State Building
Until you see New York City from the top of the Empire State Building, you haven't really seen it. The 360-degree views of the NYC skyline from the 86th floor observation deck are nothing short of spectacular.

Their cannolis are prepared with the ricotta filling when ordered, so the pastry is always crisp. Shown here with pistachio nuts. Delicious!

Bethesda Terrace in Central Park is a popular spot for wedding photos. But the ceiling tiles also make for great accoustics for performers. While I was there, a group sang 'Amazing Grace', and the harmonies gave me goosebumps. The iconic bronze statue of Atlas, outside Rockefeller Centre. In Greek mythology, Atlas was condemned to carry the weight of the world on his shoulders after losing a war to the Olympic gods. If you follow the apex of the globe with your eyes, you will see that it points to the North Star. Rockefeller Centre is home to the Top of the Rock Observation Deck, NBC Studios, and the Rockettes.

Waited for 3 hours for this shot. And I was rewarded with a breeze coming in creating a series of waves reflecting the golden light. The clouds may have covered up the blood moon last night, but they sure made for a beautiful sky over NYC! This is right by the lake. It's such a beautiful section of the park A colorful display of holiday spirit in NYC. Engaged. #iphone6 #blackandwhite #citylife #I❤️NY Congrats to my friends Rob & Laila. Simplicity.

Travel Tip: Always be prepared for a windy day when you visit New York City.
#LifeAtExpedia View of the 59th Street Bridge, connecting Queens to Manhattan -- runners cross it at approximately mile 16 in the NYC Marathon .. The Manhattan skyline from the top of the Rockefeller Center Take a two-hour class in the flying trapeze at the South Street Seaport (in summer). I didn't get a chance to try it, but it looks like fun! Beautiful Tunnel under Bethesda Terrace....don't miss it when you are visiting Central Park in NYC. I love this spot for photography as it has some beautiful artwork not only on ceiling but walls as well and who doesn't love tunnels 🤓 it's 5 mins walk from Bow bridge and opposite to Bethesda fountain #StunningStructures #nyc #newyork #centralpark #colorful Flying north out of Newark Liberty International Airport provides a nice view of New York City and Central Park as a bird sees it! The magnificent holiday display at the Rockefeller is a must see. Enjoy the holiday music and the colorful lights all over the place. It's the Grand-daddy of holiday parades and for good reason! The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is as American as turkey, mashed potatoes and a tryptophan-induced nap. Definitely put this event on your bucket list. Get there really (really!) early, bring hot cocoa and some patience, and ring in the holiday season the way only NYC can!

#URBANJUNGLE Grand Central Terminal is the largest railway terminal in the world (76 acres). Nearly 700,000 passengers use the station daily, making it the nation's busiest. The cavernous Main Concourse measures 200 feet long, 120 feet wide, and 120 feet (roughly 12 stories) high. The ceiling is elaborately decorated with astronomical symbols. The The Rose Reading Room is a grand place for a good read. Library docents provide free tours of the building, highlighting its fascinating contents. See, for example, an early draft of the Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson.

SHOPPING ALONG 5TH AVENUE👛💍🕶👗😊👍 If you're a fashion-focused NYC Tourist, shopping at the New York stores on Fifth Avenue is a definite must during your stay in the Big Apple. NY shopping is an entirely different experience than shopping in another city, especially along this historical road. Located in the center of Manhattan, the best Fifth Avenue shopping takes place between 39th and 60th Street at NYC flagship stores. Whether you are searching for the latest fashions, NY souvenirs, or useful housewares, New York outlets on Fifth Ave cater to every taste and budget. Shutterbugging around. #streetphotography #iconic #architecture #reflections #I❤️NY #blackandwhite #NikonD7100 #citylife #cityscape #landscape I took this photo the day after Nemo storm. Central Park seemed like a Xmas movie that day. I found this little fellow with friends among the trees and decided to pose for me. #Red New Museum is a super current crazy art museum that always has artists that blow my mind. The entire 4th floor was a white palatte and 9 weeks later it was turned into this by allowing anyone to create art and place it anywhere in the room. They even has a scaffolding ladder for you to reach the top of the walls if that is where you wanted to place your art. The pic was taken from the top of the scaffolding ladder to give you a sense of the enormity of this truly interactive work. Yesterday was the last day so there were barely any art supplies or wall space for anything more. Yes that is a tee-pee in the middle that also served as an art palette. I know everyone posts this picture, but I just think it's such a cool building, that I had to post it again! I stayed in the neighborhood this trip to New York, and walked by it each day on my way to work during my stay; such a cool landmark. Near Century 21 on 66th, there is a Saturday Farmers Market. September's produce and flowers is the peak month for this market as evidenced by these flowers. This is NOT photoshopped. #colorful A wall of radishes piled high in the Union Square #market, which takes place every weekend Spring to Autumn. #weekendgetaway #Delicious #foodiefinds #patterns The Manhattan skyline from the ferry out to the statue of liberty.
So good they named it twice. Christmas time inside St. Patrick's Cathedral Great birdhouse habitat and sculpture located on the highline park Ruthy's Bakery cupcakes are mostly frosting masterpieces so am not a fan of eating them but love to admire them. However they have other delicious treats such as homemade whoopee cookies filled with cream cheese in the middle and a kick ass red velvet brownie. Located inside Chelsea Marketplace on 9th Ave/15th St. A busy afternoon at Grand Central Observing the beautiful fall foliage during a walk through Central Park. Wanted to frame the Empire State Building and shoot a different perspective of this scene Superb! #Delicious Looking south on Manhattan Creative tributes can often be found at this memorial to John Lennon. #colorful #autumn Stumbled upon this gorgeous street art today, while stroking along the High Line, an old elevated train track converted into a pedestrian walkway through the Chelsea neighborhood of the Big Apple.
Easily one of the most gorgeous displays of wall art I've ever seen.
