New York, NY. My favorite city! I'm very much aware of how lucky I am to be living in this spectacular city, and I do count my blessings.

Each year I promise myself that I'll go out more, camera in hand, to discover or rediscover parts of the Big Apple. When some wonderful friends visited me, I took them on an Angels in America tour, showing them the Bethesda Angel in Central Park, City Hall area, and so on.

Although fall is the best season to explore NYC, any day is a good day to go out. Also, some of the best views of Manhattan are possible not from inside Manhattan, but from across the river(s), from the pedestal (or crown) of Miss Liberty, the Staten Island ferry, or the Circle Liner.
While I'm sure I'll be adding more images of Manhattan and New York City, for now, here are a few I've taken over the years.
