Travels by Bus

Ventured uptown to have tea on 84th Street.


If you are an idle person with time on your hands, this is an ideal form of transportation.
Lots to look at. No good at all if you are in a great hurry.
We went past Lincoln Center and the newish Time Warner Building and then headed down 7th Avenue.



Such a useful traffic jam in Times Square.
Time to look about me and goggle at all the excitement.


Lots of different faces came up in the Person of the Year frame. You can probably pay to have your face there for an instant.


We lumbered past Macy's which was twinkling like mad.

And ended up just by the Flatiron Building and Madison Square Park.

  2. Love these shots! That police station in times square always cracks me up. There's nothing normal about a glitzy, lit police sign!

  8. You are a new find for me, and I am thoroughly enjoying your explorations with camera and text of NYC. Having a daughter living there makes it even more fun to follow along, imagining her taking some of this in on her daily routes through Manhattan.

  15. Hello Elizabeth,

    That bus ride just would not have been the same in strong daylight. Hoping that the bus did not crawl too slowly through midtown.

    Let us toast electricity and all the uplift it brings us round about this time of the year.

  21. Such pretty lights! I love NYC at night. One time we were staying in a hotel near Times Square and I was amazed that all the lights were still burning bright at 3am.

    BTW, I ordered your book and it arrived in excellent time! I just dipped into it last week, but decided I am going to save it to savour over the holiday break. Once again, congratulations!
