Photo by myself, somewhere in Midtown.
The view from the double decker buses is a unique one.
Apart from the crowded sidewalk, you have long vistas of the avenues. You're also close to the detail of all the older buildings, which is sometimes lost blocked by signage and canopies.
A number of tour bus companies offer single day tickets where you can hop on and off.
Apologies for the tardy and spotty posts of late. It has been soooo busy here.
At home, I've been dealing with downed elevators and building leaks. At work, I've been drawing up fancy Kitchens and Dining Room tables that seat 12 or more. This is a little disconcerting, since many New York apartments don't even have Dining Rooms.
There have been warnings of another dip in the economy, but judging by the surge of projects and project deadlines, we have nothing to worry about.
