Sunday in NYC with Vanessa and we met up with Vera again at Columbus Circle.
Two fruitcakes in knitted clothing who were informing the public of "them" ripping us all off.
St Patrick's Cathedral

A quad of art deco buildings on 5th Ave near Rockefeller Centre, another of NYC's many concessions to internationalism. Clockwise from top left: La Maison Francaise, British Empire House, Italia House, and one unassigned glass sculpture by an Italian artist.

Passing by St Pat's again
Vanessa, before taking a pic of me at Rockefeller, played camera wars with another tourist
Rockefeller and more flags than I've ever seen in one place
The facade of the GE building (ex RCA) opposite the flags
GE building is so tall my camera was near the ground and I still couldn't get the top
And finally, moi
We took the subway to the UN near the eastern tip of Manhattan.
From opposite the UN you can see the top of the Chrysler building
A zoom on both buildings
Grand Central Station - such grandeur to house such utility
Vanessa and me on Pier 17 at the South Street Seaport
Old rowhouse at the seaport, in front of the Brooklyn Bridge
More sailor rowhouses at the seaport - shops and a museum
