All Mod Cons In New York

I was supposed to be seeing Paul Weller play at the Nokia Theater in New Yorks Times Square last Friday. Unfortunately Paul's father became very ill and the gig was cancelled. The day before my flight John Weller passed away, my thoughts are with the Weller family during this awful time.

As a sign of respect I'll be keeping this post to mainly photos with a few notes here and there.

All Mod Cons in Central Park. On a rock. The wonders of modern technology (a timer on my phone camera) and a handily place rock, means photos of yourself are easily achieved.

I'd never been on a 747 before. As a boy I'd always dreamt of flying in one. It's probably quite an experience, although due to British Airways being one of the worst airlines in the world it turned out to be distinctly average. More on this another time.

The weather wasn't like British Airways, because it was absolutely fantastic. Hardly a cloud anywhere and a scorching 26 degrees.

The Empire State Building. No gorillas were present this time round.

Central Park.

John Lennon was shot here.

Down In The Tube Station At...err...midday.

The Statue Of Liberty from a long way away.

Brooklyn Bridge.

A proper Mustang. Absolutely stunning.


Times Square.

All Mod Cons with a New York Copper.

How did you find New Yawkers? I really like them, always pleasant people, well at least the ones I have met! I think I am gonna book a long weekend off and head down by train soon. Looks like fun.

And so the world traveler returns home once again...

You could have labeled that picture Down In The Tube Station At Midnight – we’d never have known it wasn’t!
