Midtown Manhattan YRE
06/24/2005

We did Midtown Manhattan YRE in conjunction with the Central Park YRE. We came in from NJ on the PATH train that ends at 33rd Street. Leaving the PATH station we walked the Midtown Manhattan and the Central Park YREs backwards.

Somewhere near 33rd Street at about 8am. It didn't seem that dark.     

    

Shopping for postcards.

CBS     

    

There were McDonald's on every other street. This was the first time I've ever seen McDonald's "up in lights".

Just a shot of the city.

We crossed the street to visit the McDonald's on Time's Square. You can barely see the McDonald's sign on the right side of this picture. There was a pianist playing music in this McDonald's. The piano was on a balcony above the front door.

Another advertisement that caught my eye.

     

Home of David Letterman's show.

The streets were lined with vendors. This one was selling pictures but there was also venders for jewelry, watches, purses, newspapers/magazines and food/drinks.

From here we entered Central Park. If you want to go to that website, click here. Pictures following are from our return back to the PATH.
