on a spree to New York - but first some views

I've just got back from New York, a fantastic week of seeing the sites, catching up with family, going shopping (of course) and exploring parts of the city I have not visited before. Here are some pics of the popular tourist destinations.

No visit to New York would be complete without a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty and downtown Manhattan from the water - take the Staten Island ferry to enjoy the view (free! and goes every half hour)
I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art on a warm spring day to see the paintings, furniture, stained glass windows and ceramics in the American Wing, large enough to be a museum in its own right
How about this for elegant lounging...
...and a room for lounging in - Frank Lloyd Wright room. Swoon
I took a peak at the Guggenheim, but didn't have time to go and see the art
Times Square, on my way to the theatre to see Stockard Channing (*love*) in Other Desert Cities
The Flatiron building (felt slightly giddy looking upwards, must have been because of jetlag)
The Highline in Chelsea, a disused railway track turned into a public park - I love how citizens modify and sculpt their cities, using old structures for new uses
