Default Random NYC Pictures

I take pictures whenever I can which is pretty much everyday but haven't been posting them because they're all from midtown in NYC and you might have already seen enough of them.

So lately I've been digging deep into my pockets for subway fare so I can also take pictures uptown and downtown. Of course I’m wishing my pictures are worth the trip (and roundtrip fares) but don’t let that stop you from knocking yourselves out commenting and critiquing just kidding.

Seriously, thank you for looking, c&c welcome.

#1) Charles A. Dana Discovery Center at the northern tip of Central Park (110th Street).


#2) Grant's Tomb (122nd Street).


#3) St. Paul's Chapel (downtown).


#4) Woolworth Tower (building on the right -- Park Row, downtown)


#5) Herald Square (midtown).


#6) Times Square (midtown).

Thanks a lot, Bob, Walter.

#7) Bryant Park with 42nd Street buildings.


#8) Cemetery beside Trinity Church across Wall Street.


#9) General Grant National Memorial, a.k.a. "Grant's Tomb". Grant was the general that won the Civil War for President Lincoln. Becoming popular and generous in victory -- he wouldn't allow any of the confederates to be tried for secession, a crime punishable by death -- Grant became 18th President of the United States. The memorial was built in New York City and not in Washington DC because the Grant family lived there after his presidency and his wife wanted to be able to visit whenever she wanted.


#10) General Grant's and his wife, Julia Dent Grant's sarcophagi.


#11) Dome atop Grant's mausoleum.

#12) Chinatown.
