Week 34 – A3. I Saw It on Vacation

While Barb and I were in New York for her high school class reunion, we reserved a day to do some sightseeing in New York City.  Fortunately our rental car had a sun roof which made it easy to take some pictures of the famous New York skyscrapers.  Here’s my version of “I Saw It on Vacation”.

Somewhere I missed a sign and wound up on the entrance ramp to the Lincoln Tunnel to New Jersey.  This turned out to be a good wrong turn as we found a super overlook across the Hudson River and a fantastic shot of the Manhattan skyline stretching from the Verrazano Bridge to midtown and including the new #1 World Trade Center building.

As we drove through the city that never sleeps, we were amazed at the variety of geometrical shapes of the new buildings and the blend of the old and new as seen in this view.

And the new #1 World Trade Center.  “I Saw It on Vacation” and now I’ve shared it with you.  Hope you enjoyed it.

  1. Yes sometimes that oops turns into something special that you would never have seen. Good shots. Like the series. New York has some great shaped buildings.
