Had a conference as part of my university course last week in Puerto Rico. En route had twenty hours in New York courtesy of a long layover. Decided to venture out of JFK in to the city to have a look around. Not been to NYC before so just had time to get a taster. This picture is at the High Line park. It opened fairly recently and was made out of an old railway line into a park. You can get some nice views of the city from a more peaceful setting. I think the viewing platform is over 10th Avenue. In the other direction you can see the Statue of Liberty in the distance. It is pretty nifty.
