One of the things about New York that I missed the most while I was down South was walking. And I did a lot of it since I've returned to the city.
I took my camera with me on a couple of walks that I did over the past few days.
Pardon the schmutz on the lens in some of the pictures. That's all on the inner lenses and has to be cleaned at the shop; another trade off for a cheap functioning digital camera that I've had now for almost 10 years. It also doesn't do very well in the dark. Despite that, I got a few good night time shots below.
All these are my photos and are freely available.

It is the tallest residential building in the world and officially the second tallest building in town. Unofficially, it's the tallest. It sits on higher ground than the WTC, and if you get rid of the broadcasting mast on 1 WTC, then this would definitely be the tallest building in the city. You can see 1 WTC just to the right of the Empire State Building and behind Rockefeller Center. To the right of that are the 4 new slender towers going up along 57th Street. The biggest one to the right is the new Nordstrom Tower which may top out 432 Park Avenue when it is finished. I have a lot to say about these buildings, but I'll save it for a future post.
