My camera zooms pretty good.

Checking out the view...

Which turns out to be this view...
Photobucket
I liked seeing the New York cityscape from the ferry.


We dropped by my cousin's synagogue on the upper west side. See his name? He's a Rabbi.  I think that's cool.

Posing in Central Park.

You should see the backside...



















I don't know what buildings these are, but I liked how they bordered the park reservoir.
Photobucket

The Guggenheim.  That Frank Lloyd Wright was one interesting fellow.
Photobucket

The Met.
Prepare yourself. I really liked the Met...

Here is some stuff we saw...

An Egyptian statue thing.

An Egyptian mummy.
Several mummies actually.

This guy...
Photobucket

Some guy named Salvador Dali?
Photobucket
Actually I love Salvador Dali. Especially his moustache.

This Mirror was much more impressive in person. This was the best picture I could get though.  Staring into it was extremely disorienting because it fragments your entire visual plane.
Photobucket

I liked this color thing.  So did Robin.

This display was funny because nearly everyone thought it was a real bench for sitting.  Alarms would go off as soon as anyone got too close to it.  It was amusing to watch.
Photobucket

Again, this was more impressive in person.
You can try to stare at it if you want.
Photobucket

Andy Warhol.
Photobucket

Photobucket

Apparently this is a really famous picture.  Something about pointilizm?
Photobucket
;)

This was written on a wall outside an Episcopal church.  Does anyone know what it means? We really want to know!
Photobucket

"The Roses" on Park Avenue.













More of Central Park.
Photobucket

The Mall in Central Park.
I had the tremendous urge to run or bike its entire length. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time. I really want to go back and spend several days just exploring the park.

The park has a castle! How cool is that?!
Photobucket

Umbrella swords!
Photobucket


The was one of the most imposing looking buildings we saw.
It reminds me of something, but I'm not sure what.
Photobucket

Here's another view.
Photobucket

















One of these is the Municipal Building...I'm not sure which one.Photobucket

Photobucket

I find this hilarious for some reason.
Photobucket

City Hall.
Photobucket

City Hall Park.
Photobucket

Brooklyn Bridge.
Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

The Manhattan Bridge as viewed from the Brooklyn Bridge.
Photobucket

These were all over the place.  I liked them.
Photobucket

Pizza courtesy of Grimaldi's. Quite possibly the coolest pizza location of all time! It is located in "Dumbo", or Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. If ever you find yourself in New York City, this place should not be missed!
Photobucket















Prepare youself. You are about to view my favorite location from our entire trip!
After eating pizza at Grimaldi's we walked down the street to a little park on a pier overlooking Manhattan.
It provided some of the most spectacular views of the city.
I think it is called Brooklyn Bridge Park.
