    Loved it ! A very different city, and I just cannot see how anyone can drive in it. We stayed at the Hilton Garden at Times Square, so here are just a few of many photos we took:

    I took way too many pictures, and these are just a few. Not bad for an 8mp camera.

    Thanks... NYC is a very different type of city... a real city LOL. I respect anyone that can drive there. We had a limo take us from JFK to the hotel, to the wife;s award ceremony, and back to the airport.

    The two seater bike ride was fun... guy on the bike, and two of you sitting in a cart in the back.

    It's one of the few US cities where it's not uncommon for many people to not have a drivers license. While I had spent high school on Long Island and had a license, my wife didn't get a driver's license until we met and she wanted to get a bike as I already had. The laws may have changed since, but it was a cluster**** to get a motorcycle license as your very first driver's licence. BTW, it's a great city to ride a bike in. HH

    I visited there for about a week. Loved it. Loved every minute of it. I found the people there to be a LOT more friendly than where I grew up (GA) and even where I'm at now (HI.) Oddly enough. :dunno:

    Great pics. I go down to the City 3-4 times a year, and was there last month for the St. Patricks Day parade. The driving isn't that bad.
