Another day...

Another $ (spent, that is). Killer breakfast (as far as my arteries were concerned!) and on to MoMA. If you've never been, it's like a who's who of modern art. Walking from gallery to gallery, one could be turning the pages of a book about modern masterpieces. Phenomenal! Then a quick stop by Bloomingdales. After that we posed for the Times Square EarthCam (getting plenty of attention from the locals [which is not bad going considering this is NewYork!]) then on to The Empire State Building observational deck (floor 86!) for a mind blowing view across Manhattan. Back into Tines Square for an evening meal before bed. Thanksgiving Day parade in the morning. New York is RELENTLESS!

Picasso painted some very important pictures!

This one is just for Emma-Jane!

The view from the ground...

.... and via the webcam!

If I could only describe the degree to which the photo does not do this view justice!

Times Square... For the last time?
