I arrived in NYC about noon on the 15th. I cannot begin to describe this New York so I'm not going to try, I'm just going to let you look at the photos, however I will outline what we did on each day.
Day 1, Friday: Around the city to St. Patrick's Cathedral, Grand Central Station, Rockefeller Center, Times Square from a distance, Carnegie Hall and the New York City Pen Show
Day 2, Saturday: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Asia Society, around the city, the New York City Pen Show and dinner at the Brooklyn Diner with pen friends. Oh, I also got to see the Hudson River and Hell's Kitchen, at night.
Day 3, Sunday: The Dakota, then the train south to Ground Zero, St. Paul's Chapel, the Financial District, Trinity Church, Battery Park, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty (we did not go out to either, the lines were just too long), Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian, back to the Metropolitan Museum, through Central Park to Strawberry Fields.
Day 4, Monday, Shopping Day: The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, Greenwich Village, the walking and train and bus, to Muji, Dick Blick and Art Brown. We also ate a great meal of Dim Sum at the Chinatown Brasserie.
Many, many thanks to my friend and hostess, Mia, from the jadecow sketches.
So here is a slideshow of the photos or you can view them on my Flickr site: New York City.
