Picturing New York City

Here are some more pictures of our recent trip to New York City that I wanted to share with you as there's still no time to sit down and write a post about the whole trip just yet. Darn having to work to make a living! Hey, Claire, if you're lurking let me know what places you want to see when you're here in September!

The Brooklyn BridgeThe Brooklyn Bridge with one of the four waterfalls from the public art project designed by Danish artist Olafur Eliasson. I would love to have seen this at night!

Ellis IslandEllis Island - still on my list of places I want to go see (other than from Battery Park!)

The Statute of LibertyThe Statute of Liberty as seen from Battery Park (it was pretty hazy on Saturday so this isn't the best picture I'm afraid).

More to come another day ... like I said, I am going to get a lot of posts out of this trip!
Also, I will hopefully get back to visiting everyone else's blogs on Tuesday, I apologize for not having had the time to get to them since Thursday. Sometimes real life just seems to get in the way!

  1. How I miss my NYC! I wish the plane tickets weren't so expensive so I could grab Mark and spent a weekend there...

  2. How fun Linda. I can see why New York can tire one out. There is just so much of everything. Great shots and thanks for sharing. Have a great day. Big hug. :)

  5. Oh, you got to see the Waterfalls? I just read an article about them recently-hopefully I make it to NYC before the show is over.

  6. Cool!

    Whenever I make it back to NYC, one of the things on the list will be the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I missed it when I was there before because we got the dates mixed up and it was closed.

    We ended up at the Museum of Natural History, which was very cool. But we're still kicking ourselves about missing out on The Met.

  7. Very nice pictures Linda Loo! I am originally FROM NY and my family still lives there-and I've never been to Ellis Island either.

  13. Great photos, Linda! I love how you framed Lady Liberty.

    I also want to get to Ellis Island someday. It's on that list!

    Yesterday I dedicated my post to three members of Royalty with whom I'm friends. Go see.

    I totally understand about not being able to visit people. There are just so many hours in a day!
