St Patrick’s Cathedral, on Fifth Avenue at East 51st Street, was undergoing extensive interior work when we dropped in after a full day of walking in June 2015. It’s hard to get a photo these days without getting another photographer in the picture!

After a visit to the The Morgan Library and Museum (Park Avenue) on a walk back to Pod 39, where we slept, we ducked into this downtown church: the Roman Catholic Parish of Our Saviour, corner of Park Avenue and East 38th Street.

Rush hour outside, quiet inside.

On this day in September 2014, I think there were as many people in Grand Central Station taking pictures of themselves and of the building as there were travellers and commuters!

Manhattan Tuesday 42.5 – Taxi!

Tomorrow we are traveling by plane to Calgary, Alberta. We arrive at 3:00 am our time the next day – though it will only be midnight in Calgary.

I hope there are as many taxis outside the airport as we saw in New York City. We will definitely be looking for one to whisk us to our hotel.

The next day we will be picking up a rental car and touring through the Rockies and the Okanagan Valley and on to Vancouver.

I have prescheduled a number of posts from trips to Manhattan and Cuba while we are away. But I will be taking lots of photos.

Bon voyage.

I wasn’t looking at what folks were wearing but these five young women caught my eye.
