    DPR; Nice pics of the last few days. I see that you did get to see the new WTC tower, got and a nice pic of that skyline. Haven't been to NYC yet to see it.

    Agree, love the shot of the new WTC, and the family around-the-town. The shot on Wall St. is pretty cool, as are the shots of Central Park. Your hard drive must be getting pretty full by now, and it will be great fun to review the lot when you get home... or maybe on the loooong flight back.

    Like Falcon your trip has instilled in me the need to visit there again, as well as places I have never been. Thanks, we owe you.

    Ahhh, Century21! Happy memories of designer-label clothes at ridiculously low prices (by Oz standards). When do we get to see Anne's shots? Hers are sometimes better than yours!

    Definitely spend time walking around the Greenwich Village section of Manhattan at night- preferably a Friday or Saturday. This will be one of your NYC highlights. New Yorkers don't go to Times Square- it's all tourists but you'll get the true flavor of NYC in the Village at night.

    Thanks for the compliments and yes Anne has again out shot me, especially in New York which I think favours the longer lens.

    D70 sorry for the mention of war. Yep I'm darn glad the USA entered those wars to stop German and Japanese imperialistic ambitions. I more correctly meant to say that there's much more to your history than just wars (& equal rights regardless of skin colour) and I hardly saw any evidence of it in that museum.

    Rich with the kids in tow, teenage frail tempers and safety getting home on the subway I just can't do the GV at night. We've already had a couple unpleasant incidents on and around the subway and there's no sense tempting the animals any more than necessary. I had a couple stressful moments coming back from B&H today with a new box for a $2,000 movie projector in my arms on the subway.

    We intended a quick shopping trip into B&H today which proved impossible. Kid in a candy store. I didn't spend much (no lenses) but it was a lot of small stuff that addded up and took a long time to purchase. I think all up I spent about 7 hrs in store. The photographic highlight was getting a decent ballhead so I can throw away my much hated 321 head. The family highlight was the replacement movie projector (our old one went on the fritz after around 10 years noble service). My personal highlight was buying small digital photo frames for the kids bedrooms and my work desk. As a rule of thumb most everything was about half the Australian retail price.

    I didn't take a single photo today despite lugging heavy camera gear into and out of B&H. I'll try again tomorrow. I've got the 70-200 mounted on the D800 to try and get some variety from the last couple days since I felt I wanted more reach to pick out poignant moments - instead of the 24-70 I had on cam which was just grabbing wide angle tourist snapshots for me.

    Man! A day at B&H. Photo heaven? Possibly.

    I forgot that you are not staying in Manhattan, so your reluctance to commute at night is understandable, and prudent.

    On the museum side... We (USA) have been in dumb-down mode for nearly 30 years, so miss-stating history, even in our national museum, doesn't surprise me. Believe it or not we skipped the US Museum Of History, and spent time cruising the memorials and The National Mall in general, then the FBI building, some leering at the IRS, and a reflective trip to Arlington. Both of my parents were veterans.

    Not even a photo at B&H?

    I put my bag in the cloak room plus I had the 70-200 on camera so no photo at B&H to my permanent sorrow, I'd have liked the memory and will have to download someone else's photo or a store product shot perhaps

    I'm currently reading specs on my projector to be sure I made the right decision (I spend my life second guessing this stuff), I bought mid range and am just checking I did the right thing saving $700 over the next model up.

    I try to pay B&H a visit whenever I get to NYC. And it is definitely the small stuff that adds up. Walk by a shelf and realize you can grab a handful of viewfinder shutters or all kinds of flash modifiers that you never seem to remember losing or needing. It is nice to be able to actually lay your hands on just about every variety of tripod and head side by side.

    We tried to spend a slow recovery day in Central Park but it quickly became yet more walking on our already tired feet.

    Followed it up with a quick drop in at B&H to return some unbelievably cheap US two way radios (destined for kids toys) but I discovered they work on our local ambulancce frequency back home (and there's a truly massive fine for transmitting on that frequency). Also grabbed the last heavy package I wasn't able to carry out yesterday. Thank goodness we have a truly massive luggage limit on the aircraft as we're going to need it.

    I took heaps of snaps today but they were very quick grabs so I don't know if there's anything worthwhile in them.

    One of my quick grabs of a semi-amateur musician in Central Park kick started a nice conversation with him and then followed several semi-posed shots. I'm hoping one of those shots is good enough for his album cover. We'll see if the shots worthwhile and if he uses it, two big if's.

    Not sure if we'll make it out of the hotel tomorrow, we have a late flight out but still have some carefull packing to do. It would be nice to get back into Times Square one last time before we leave.

    We went to the top of the Rockefeller Building today which makes me glad I had previously been to Winslow Meteor Crater and spent about $60 for a view as it inured me slightly to having to pay $95 for the view today. Oh well another tick off the bucket list for the family and hopefully another learning experience for the kiddies.
