''The Big Apple'' ...a very long series (maybe)

 

Towards the end of May 2017 we made a city break to New York as a 70th birthday gift to myself. Of course, my 70th birthday was actually in September 2016 ...but May seemed a good time to go.

 

This series will  be taking nibbles out of the 'Big Apple'  in my usual style and most probably be in short chapters ... but nothing is automatically set in stone.

 

This first image  shows our arrival in New York, in the rain. I think this is from our yellow cab taxi window as we travelled through Queens.

Nice shot - I do hope the weather cleared at some point for your visit...

A wet city...ho hum...was Donald Duck at the steps to greet you, Richard?
Ahhh. The Big Apple. As a 70th gift to yourself, do I assume correctly that it was your first time there, Richard?

Well this is going to be interesting Comrade Dicko. I hope you didn't make too many speeches about social inclusivity whilst you were there..

Mmmmm, May is a good time to go? You should ask for your money back, since they show you only the bottom half of their skyscrapers...
