Here’s my last set of photos from my mid-October 2016 trip to New York City. I spent 7 glorious days exploring the city, taking my time to visit some old favorite haunts and to also venture into some new areas. This set includes my visits to the amazing Oculus, next to One Freedom Center, the site of the sadly missed World Trade Center. The Oculus is a shopping mall/transit hub and something out of all the great futurist movies of the past. I also took my usual walk on the High Line, and ventured into the wilds of Queens to visit the fascinating Museum of the Moving Image.
Coming soon: LONDON 2016!

Some wise, forward-thinking people decided a long time ago to take a huge part of central New York City and turn it into a park for all the people. Central Park is always a um… central part … of any trip I make to NYC. I always spend at least half a day roaming around in it, and I definitely have favorite parts, most of them south of 72nd Street. Here’s 30 or so photos from this year’s ramble through the bramble of the greatest city park in the world.
I visited Central Park two separate times, the second time right before sunset on a rainy Friday. Those last few photos with that golden sky show that last little walk-through on the Southern end of the park. That incredible sky lasted for about 15 minutes and I would have missed it if I hadn’t turned around. Once I did, I was spellbound, but hey …that’s New York.

More photos from my week-long sojourn in New York City in mid-October 2016. Some of these photos (obviously) were taken at night, when the city really comes alive. I saw an amazing play while I was there, The Front Page, starring Nathan Lane, John Slattery, and John Goodman in the classic Ben Hecht/Charles MacArthur script about newspapermen covering a hanging. No matter what anyone says about play-going, seeing a Broadway play is an experience like no other.
All photos were taken with an iPhone 7; most were “enhanced” on Instagram or in iPhotos, but mainly color and light boosts, no filters.
