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 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/ 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.

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.

There is an amazing rooftop bar overlooking Times Square.

#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 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 The Manhattan skyline from the ferry out to the statue of liberty.
So good they named it twice. No one does fall colours like New York City! I couldn't get enough of Riverside Park on the upper west side, with all the leaves turning red, orange and yellow, painters drawing inspiration for their canvas, writers drawing inspiration for their words, and some lost souls (like me) just cycling or walking around. Oh NYC, the colours of fall look so good on you 🍁
