In the spring of 2014 I had the opportunity to spend a few days exploring New York City on foot. Memorable experiences included walking across the Brooklyn Bridge before dawn, exploring the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space museum, and observing how crazy-busy Grand Central Station station is at all hours. New York City has endless photographic opportunities and I’m looking forward to returning again to see even more! This journal entry describes a few of the interesting places I visited on my self-guided walking tour of the area.
Bryant Park, located in midtown Manhattan, has been a public space since 1686!
It doesn’t take long at all to get the subway system in NYC dialed, and each station has a unique vibe.
After walking across the Brooklyn Bridge before dawn on this crisp morning, the view back across the river to downtown Manhattan is awesome.
The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is located on (and inside) the aircraft carrier Intrepid, which sits permanently anchored on the Hudson River. Combat planes, new and old, and even the space shuttle Enterprise, are on display at the museum.
