Here's a nice pic from my final NYC tour (as a NYC resident at any rate) yesterday. Jason and I wandered all over the city snapping pictures and seeing whatever there was to be seen. We didn't run into too many psychos and only encountered one very, very, smelly man on the subway train.

The shot above was taken from South Ferry at sunset, which is where you catch the boat to visit the Statue of Liberty. It was about -39 degrees (okay maybe I'm exaggerating a bit there, but I was near death from freezing) and in many places throughout the city, there were frozen lakes and blocks of ice in the river. The ducks seemed to be having a great time swimming between the icebergs though. They're not the brightest creatures, you know.

The top of the Empire State Building was frigid, but not unbearable. I was numb by then anyway. On our way down from the observatory we ran slam into King Kong. He was there scaring this poor child, whose parents thought it was hilarious to hold him in place next to Kong and watch him scream in terror. Jason thought it was pretty humorous, too. I, on the other hand, wanted to snatch the little boy up and run him to safety. That poor child is now scarred for life.
