New York City, New York (October 2008)

Visit to New York City, destination was the IBM building at 590 Madison Av.

In between I used the time walk through visit Central Park and walk back down Madison Avenue to Time Square.

The building was built in 1983 and has an interesting history, it is good documented on the website The City Review.

Short break, enjoying a walk in central park. Just impressive how large the park is.

Time Square

Couldn't get to sleep, thus decided to go and hanging around on Time Square and visit the Hard Rock café.


Every now and then you find these steaming chimneys at cross-roads disturbing traffic. What the hells is this? Is there no better solution?
