USA Wanderings: New York Public Library
On the day I spent with Stacy, Robert and Robyn we also went to the New York Public Library. It was one building that was most definitely on my list. I have wanted to see it ever since I saw the movie Day After Tomorrow. I know that probably makes me a sad person, but I do love a good disaster movie, and Stacy really understood why I wanted to go there.
Such an imposing building from the outside. It certainly has something that says it is important. Libraries can be so beautiful. The one here is gorgeous as well. Such grandeur.
The interior was just as stunning. I really wanted to take some photos from this spot as they ran up to here in the building to see the water coming in. If you look through the middle window, that is the road or street the water came rushing down.
You can sort of see where we were standing there up on the right. Look at the detail inside this building. It was so amazing.
Of course I look at many of these photos and wish I had changed something, or did something different and now I can’t go back and re-shoot them. It is one of the benefits of making where you live or places close by your subject matter, then you can keep going back until you get the shots as you want them. I will have to start making more trips to some of my favourite Melbourne buildings.
As we left we turned back and you could see the Chrysler Building in distance.
Out the back of the library is a really popular garden, or park, it is called Bryant Park, I believe. It was lovely to just sit there and watch the people.
We decided at this stage that we need to get food so we headed to a pizza place that Robyn knew and look what we walked through.
Yes, Times Square. It was my only visit to it. I know lots of people think you have to go at night, but from what I’ve heard it really wasn’t for me. I don’t like lots of people and crowds. It was good to see it, but this was enough.
It was all part of an extraordinary day and one I know I will remember for a very long time. I am going to leave you with a gallery now. I hope you are having a lovely weekend. We’ve had a thunderstorm and some rain, very nice.
