A few photos from last week when family was visiting us: Rockefeller Center, where the ice rink is now open; walking across the Brooklyn Bridge (looking toward Manhattan); and Central Park, where it still looks pretty green, even though it's late October.
Tonight, the Empire State Building is royal blue topped with white. According to the lighting schedule on the Web site, it's honoring "Poly Prep Country Day School." That must be some school!
This Web site somewhat mimics our view (only ours is WAY better). If you ever want to see what we're seeing at that very moment, give it a click (there are 3 camera views--scroll down the page to change): http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/midtown/.
