The Hustle and Bustle of the City of New York

Taxis everywhere. The phalanx of yellow cabs invading the streets brings contrast to the concrete jungle of New York City.

They say no taxi can be more than six years old. There's also a list of cars that can be used as taxis. :)

St. Patrick's Cathedral - An Imposing Structure

Located along Fifth Avenue across the Rockefeller Center, the church seems to be inconsistent with the other concrete structures surrounding it. It does provide an aura of sanctity and solemnity in an otherwise chaotic setting like Midtown NY.

Tis' still a church after all

Although tourist do come and go, the church still functions.

Madison raised to the power of 2

I thought this was destroyed together with Godzilla?

Centrally stationed at the Grand Central Station

I'm off Fifth Avenue but the slight detour is well worth it as I visit the grandest station of them all.

Penn Station - Everybody alights the train

The end of my train ride and the start of my journey as I begin to traverse Fifth Avenue. I just hope the map drawn to me is accurate. :)

People, people everywhere.

So this is where all those people have gone. Still wonder how so many people can fit in so little space. I guess Einstein doesn't have an answer to that one.

Nighttime has fallen

Finally, spending some quiet time at the New York Public Library, the largest of its kind in North America.
