The story can be found on the livejournal blog - but at least here, you can see the pics and read the captions!

10 Jul 08 - KD & Eric's First Day in the Big NYC

While waiting for KD & Eric to get here, I killed some time on the river, taking pics
of Manhattan
because it was very clear. Here you can see the Verrazano Narrows Bridge
I zoomed in, digitally, to see the GE Building (aka 30 Rock)
KD & Eric on their first trip into the city, via the ferry
While walking around, we went by Avenue Q's theater. I thought I'd take a pic.
Ah, the M&Ms store.
It has become quite a fave of mine
A night view of Rockefeller Center - notice the absence of a skating rink!
Eric and beer at the Channel 4 Bar
KD too!


12 Jul 08 - KD & Eric's Third Day in NYC

Eric & KD on the walk to the ferry from my apartment

Just past the Manhattan Bridge, you can see one of the 6 'artistic' waterfalls installed around the city

There's that smile!
And the two of them on our ferry home
