Lena visits New York

Lena, a Russian friend from Berlin visited New York (and the US) for the first time this weekend. We were crazy tourists, covering most of big sites between 125th Street and Battery Park and from the Brooklyn Bridge to the Meat Packing District. Lena is quite the photographer so I was thrilled that she wanted to use my camera this weekend. It was fabulous and fascinating to see the city through the eyes of a NYC and USA newbie. I'll let her pictures (and a few of mine) describe the sites we saw.

We didn't go to the Statue, but this is the next best thing

Garment District, "Nothing to it butt to do it."

Lena found all of the sailors walking around because of Fleet Week, plus the NYC police, plus a plethora of American flags to be something quiet unique (is that diplomatic enough?!)

Here's one of those flags AGAIN and New York pride on full display

What kind of BS...

...is Erin saying about Times Square?!

"New York has lots of smells"...and many of them seem to be coming from the sewers.
