    Thanks for the photoessay! Too many things to comment on

    I would note that NYC seems to maintain its parks in a less shaggy/shabby state than San Francisco???

    I was in Corona Park in Flushing a couple years ago and it looked like a landfill. I felt like I was in the outskirts of Rio. However, I have never been to SF.

    If the transit strike is over by Friday, can someone tell me the best way to get from the Port Authority/Times Square to the Bowery/Spring/Delancey Street area. I need to get to a party on Friday night. Secondly, is the WTC station open?

    no, there's no WTC station anymore. BUT you can take the 2/3 to Park Place, or the R to City Hall, or the R or 1/9 to Rector Street -- they're all within a block or two of it.

    From Port Authority, you can take the C train downtown to Spring street -- it drops you in the west-ish part of Soho. The 6 also has a Spring Street stop, but it only goes down the east side, so it doesn't go to Port Authority. If you want the shortest walk, you could brave the horrors of Times Square, walk over to 6th ave and catch an F, which will leave you at 2nd Ave a bit later, and walk south a couple of blocks to Delancy, or further south to Spring. Lotsa choices.

    ps. transit strike over? you're dreaming. but it's only about 60 blocks from PA to where you're going -- that's just 3 miles. and it's scenic, in a way -- lots of people to look at!

    Hard to tell from my photos... Bryant Park, Central Park, and Prospect Park are probably the best-maintained parks in NYC. There are dozens (hundreds?) of other parks.

    is the WTC station open?
    Yes, on the E it's still open on non-strike days.

    Great photos of Midtown. Was that a picture of the Flat Iron Building I seen?

    I didn't capture the Flat Iron, if you're referring to thing, that's in Brooklyn near Grand Army Plaza and Prospect Park.

    Thanks a ton for sharing your photos gct13! It takes some balls to get good shots of urban street life. You never know when some freak is gonna threaten you just for taking their picture in a public place. The pictures seem to quench my thirst to travel to the big apple yet tempt me to want to try living there someday.
