Manhattan from the Empire State Building, July 2005

I went to New York for the first ( and only, so far) time in 2005 for a friend's 40th birthday party. Can't believe she'll be 50 next year. Wonder what she'll arrange for that. The 40th was celebrated on a boat going around Manhattan, which was great and, of course, unmissable.

I stayed a day or so either side to do the tourist stuff. You'll notice in the photo that the metal safeguarding barrier is in perfect focus, rather than the actual view. The camera was new and I hadn't quite got the hang of it. I'd set it up all wrong. But I'm still keeping my pics to help me remember it all.

tee hee- nice safety mesh. Awesome that you got to come to our side of the world.

Yes Catherine, and of course you can walk around and see 360%.

Yes, Joan. The nearest I'd got to the US before that was on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.
