They say one of the best places to shoot photos of New York City is in a cab. You are usually stopped quite a bit, and have the time to shoot something on the way to a great place. I was headed to the Metropolitan Museum of Art from Port Authority Bus Terminal. Carlos Bake Shop is right next to Port Authority. Buddy is a good guy, but I don't find his products better than others. It's always very busy, and if you go later in the day, expect things to be sold out.
I loved this sign for the women's soccer team! Right above my fave drugstore in NYC, Duane Reade. Have you ever been in a DR? Oh you must, they are the BEST drugstores, wish we would get them in Pennsylvania. The closest we come is Walgreens which is owed by the same company.
The New York Inn looked interesting but I don't think I would ever stay there. I probably wouldn't even have my pet stay there, to be honest! When I looked it up, it said a budget friendly hotel for rooms about $117.00 per night. I really don't think so!
I think I was hanging out of the cab window for this shot, probably not a good idea but it worked pretty well.
I didn't get the name of this place, so sorry, we must have been speeding by, but had to shoot these lovely statues for you!
There are so many gorgeous buildings in NYC, you really get lost when you look up and see them at every street! It is a good problem to have!
I don't know if I would want to live that high up, but it makes for a great photograph, for sure!
Another gorgeous building, those doors, those lights, those carvings! I just can't take it already! I just ♥ New York City!
It is like walking around in a postcard. What a lovely thought!
We are in the Met now, and what a great shoe this is! So many details, I love the stones and different colors as well. I may even be able to walk in it since the heel is kind of stacked. Lovely!
This view in the Met never gets old. If you find you get tired of seeing it, you have a problem. It is such a glorious view!!
The Met has 4 amazing exhibits which I would highly recommend if the subject interests you:
Van Gogh: Irises and Roses Through August 16, 2015
China: Through the Looking Glass Through September 7, 2015
Sargent: Portraits of Artists and Friends Through October 4, 2015
