New York New York

Some shots from today at the Museum of Modern Art... I'm here in New York city to visit my cousin and take some photos and take in some sights.

My day started very early with a 5 a.m. cab ride to the airport, then a bumpy flight and a second cab ride to Anna and Stanley's almost empty apartment. They are in the middle of a move (great timing I know!) so tonight I'm staying in Manhattan on the Upper West Side and then after tomorrow I'll be joining them in their new apartment in Brooklyn.

Anyone who has been to NYC knows that there is a unique flavour to this city. I'm on a treelined street with ubiquitous brownstones and signs on trees asking good neighbours to 'curb' their dogs. Central Park is a short walk away (which I plan to cross tomorrow get to the east side for more museums, after a Starbucks pit stop of course). The subway system is extensive and exactly how it's depicted on tv shows and movies (busy, and a bit smelly).

The famed Rockerfeller plaza Christmas tree is first of all, huge, and still being set up under a huge layer of scaffolding. Here's a quick shot I grabbed of another area being set up. This is by the Apple store at the SE corner of Central Park.

I'll endeavour to take more photos tomorrow... I was too busy just taking it all in with my mental camera (and holding an umbrella).
