Notes from the road: New York

For the next few weeks we will be making our way slowly around the world and I’ll be writing for various sites and publications as we go. I’ll be using this site mainly to let my mother know that we’re alive and well and to keep our family and anyone else who cares updated on progress by posting a few photos (isn’t that what travel blogs are for?)

I’ll link to my articles published elsewhere as and when they appear.

For now here are a few photos from our first return to New York since we moved out of our apartment in the city over eight years ago.

Shuttle on the Intrepid

Lifts in the lobby of the Chrysler Building

Lifts in the lobby of the Chrysler Building – I had never appreciated just how much Art Deco there was in New York

A walk in Central Park

We managed a couple of walks in Central Park, including a short stroll in our favourite area above 95th street, far from the crowds in the lower park

9/11 memorial

After many years of arguments, the 9/11 memorial looks like a sensitive, fitting tribute
