NYC ’11 – Day 4

This will be the last of the series. Day 4 was pretty quiet. We had just half a day and it was raining. The 6 Million Dollar Home bag works..big time. The bag got drenched in the rain, but the camera was bone dry.NYC Day4 - 1

NYC ’11 – Day 3

Day 3 we decided to cover Rockefeller Center, Guggenheim Museum, Madison Ave and Central Park. While at Central Park, I wanted to shoot the iconic Apple store on 5th Ave. But on the way to Guggenheim I saw that the building was all covered up..it looked like there was some kind of maintenance going on….next time maybe. Did you know that the staircase in the Apple stores is one of the 313 patents that Steve Jobs owns?..Check out the complete list here.
Its when I got on top of the Rock did I realize that that climax of Matt Damon’s recent forgetful blunder – Adjustment Bureau was shot here.

NYC ’11 – Day 2

Day 2 was spent mostly in Brooklyn. We started by treating ourselves to some fine chocolate at Jacques Torres. Then we walked around DUMBO and later had lunch at Fatty Cue (known for their barbecue). Later in the day, Ethan spent some time in the Brooklyn bridge park, while I went about taking pictures of the bridge. It was a sad and gloomy day with a scaffolding on one side of the bridge. So, I decided to introduce some drama into the picture by converting it into B&W.
Later, we walked along the Brooklyn Bridge all the way to Manhattan. The day ended by coming back to Eataly, we ordered a pizza to go and went back to Madison Square park/Flatiron building. As you can see, that building has impressed me..:)

NYC ’11 – Day 1

We had a marvelous Labor Day weekend at the Big Apple.
While in New York we stayed at an apartment in West Village. I just want to mention a little about this. We found this place through airbnb. This website lists apartments that are available to rent for a weekend/couple of weeks or even to sublet. Renting a place through airbnb worked out to be a lot cheaper than staying in a decent hotel in Manhattan. In addition to this, the place we chose was safe, clean and very near to a subway station. I would recommend this website!! Its worth a try. Check it out…

We started day 1 with coffee from Third Rail Coffee. After which we went to ‘Eataly’ for lunch (best sandwiches…), gawked at the Flatiron building and spent some time at the Madison Square Garden. We then walked around Grand Central and ended the day with a stroll along the Highline Park.
Here are the pics.
