It should be called New London...




Looking up - New YorkSkyscraper
I may be missing the point with New York, but so far as I can tell, it's pretty much like London - but a little bit higher in places, and scruffier, with more litter and graffiti.

Graffiti in NY

Oh, and it's insanely hot and humid at this time of year, so I was wandering around in a daze a lot of the time. I had a few nice walks, a great dinner in Chinatown, and a tour and another lovely meal with Chef E (who's every bit as friendly in real life as on her blogs) which deserves a post of its own...

Reflections

Of course the taxis are yellow, the accents are American, and there's a Starbucks on almost every corner. But basically NY is a Very Big City and I'm a bit short of things to say about that.... maybe something more inspired will come to me once I'm over the jetlag.

Jeff and I were a bit underwhelmed with New York as well. But then we'd seen Chicago first and really loved it. It's a much prettier city, more beautiful and varied buildings.

I always have found NY to be hot and sticky and very dirty. I don't see the attraction either.
Hope you had a good trip, nonetheless.

I've only been once. I'm just not a "big city" kind of gal!

I like big cities. I think they are like huge museum exhibits! Cool photos.

I think you might have gotten a little heat stroke too, do ya think? Great photos, mine came out kind of scratchy at times...
