We spent the last few days walking around Manhattan (that’s modern American for Manna-hata), staring at scyscrapers and taking tons of pictures. Here’s a selection of what we say during the days:
(to view larger versions or see pics more just click’em)

Rockefeller Center
P1010576

I’m always amazed by old little buildings standing in niches between the scyscrapers.
St.Patrick’s Cathedral
P1010577

Whenever I see scyscraper construction work going on, I try to tell whether they build it up or take it down (I mean, they obviously can’t blow’em up, but somehow all the old buildings have to come down, right?), but I can never really tell.
In this picture, I think the one on the left is deconstruction and the one on the right is definetly new.

I love it when old and new buildings merge within the cityscape, …

…or when they use a color other than grey for a change. This is at Bryant Park.
P1010599

As you already know, we went to Times Square. No picture can truly capture the how much is going on there, but we tried nonetheless:

Man, even the US army is in Times Square. Crazy!

Of course we had to stop by the Hard Rock Caf√ɬ©, …

…if only to take a picture of Djavan in front of the awesome guitar-wall:

After Times Square we went to se Djavan’s uncle on lower Westside. On the roof of his apartment building you get this kickass view:

Hooray!!!
P1010623

That’s New Jersey there on the horizon. If you look closely, you might spot Joe.
P1010619

This is the view we get when we’re riding the tram to our place on Roosevelt’s Island.

P1010933

That’s it for now, stay tuned for more pics from the nightime views of Manna-hata…

ps:
Does anyone know that this is about? We saw these to cars in two way-not-in-the-same-area places in New York. Is that a common prank or some kinda parking-violation punishment? (I guess the latter would be silly)
