On the View of Midtown West and Dining In Brooklyn

Midtown skyline
Photo by myself around 52nd Street and 12th Avenue, on the West Side.

The view from a parking garage on the far west side, looking southwest.

Ahead, the glass towers along Midtown West. The W Hotel is located at 47th Street and Broadway. The building on the very right with the spiky top is the New York Times tower at 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue.

The building just above the 'G' in Guess is the Westin Hotel at 43rd Street and Eighth Avenue. The Westin is recognizable for its colored vertical stripes.


By the way, on the other side of Manhattan, it's Restaurant Week in Brooklyn.

Restaurants in neighborhoods all over Brooklyn are offering special menus until the end of March. You can enjoy prix fixe lunches for $20.11 and three-course dinners for $25. Every cuisine imaginable is represented.

Some of our favorite restaurants are included, like The Smoke Joint in Fort Greene (bbq) and Anthony's in Park Slope (Italian, great thin crust pizza).

I guess it's a great week for eating in Brooklyn! And I guess many people notice that sexy billboard! I'm also guessing you're having a good week!

I don't know why but I've always liked billboards.
& Those Brooklyn deals sound like fun. I would find it difficult not to eat out every night if I lived in Brooklyn during restaurant week!
