thanks, nice photos! Can't believe how many places you went in 3 days. And thanks for the picture of the damaged WTC sculpture. I'm still hoping it's returned to the original site, perhaps if only in the museum.

What's this? A clean NYC subway station?...you have stumbled upon a real gem, my friend; the rarest of the rare, an elusive beast found only by the incredibly lucky. Many have searched their entire lives yet never have found such a pristine specimen.

Thanks guys! ... And I had no idea I was in the presence of such a pristine subway station haha. Seems to have been recently refurbished, hopefully that trend continues.

The High Line was really impressive. And the WTC site. It'll be cool to return when construction is complete.

The WTC site has definitely been progressing quickly, the last time I was in New York, about 4 years ago, it was still a hole in the ground. The city as a whole seems to be progressing quite rapidly, I hardly recognized the skyline of Queens, which didn't even have a skyline when I visited the Top of the Rock when I was much younger.

Nice photo set! The vivid colors and texture of the shots give it a almost chamber of commerce quality feel. Great job!
