Nueva York: The Latest Visit

For the first time in several years, I paid a trip to the Big Apple (or, as one might call it in Spanish, la Gran Manzana) without my Nikon in tow. I couldn’t resist capturing a few snaps with my handy-dandy iPhone 5S. Following are a few of the images which I managed to preserve for posterity’s sake.

A flower vendor and several fashionable young passers-by at Penn Station.

Here is a fast food kiosk in Penn Station. The name cracked me up big-time.

Okay, so this is not exactly the stairway to heaven.

And here I am at the place that inspired my visit, the world renowned International Center of Photography.

I visited on January 11th, the very last day of “Genesis,” an exhibit showcasing a few of Brazilian photojournalist Sebastio Salgado’s works.






After my visit to the “Genesis” exhibit, I headed to Greenwich Village for a couple of hours before calling it a day.







On my way back to Penn Station , I saw two snap-worthy sights. The first was a graffiti-strewn truck. The artwork was so eye-catching that I spent several minutes trying to frame the perfect shot.

Last but not least, I leave you with one of my favorite images from this trip. The day of my visit fell only four days after the terrorist attacks in Paris. On this particular evening, the Empire State Building was all lit up to show the city’s solidarity with France.

Good night, New York City. Thank you for yet another supply of colorful memories!

  1. I love looking through your lens, even if it’s not a Nikon. Such beauty all around (even on the subway stair). I got a chuckle out of the Bakery’s name too. I just bought some kale chips labeled “hot & nasty” :|o

  2. Thanks for the comment, Angie! I enjoy sharing images from my lens, as well.
    Those kale chips sound amazing! I’ll have to keep an eye out for them. I’m sure they’re no Mocha Chip ice cream, but still worth a try. πŸ˜‰

    1. I know! Also saw a sign for “Thompson Alchemists” a few blocks from the Jess3 graffiti. I snapped a photo, but didn’t post it to this bliggety-blog.

  3. Beautiful photography work, as always, Gina! Oh, how much i remember some of these same NYC streets. As a student at Parsons School in the Village, I would go through many of these same streets. Also, Sunday afternoons in SoHo at Broome St. Bar!!! That place used to have the yummiest (and reasonably priced) burgers. Also lovely that you were able to catch a show at the International Center of Photography – would love to hear more about that also. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks, Patricia! What fun memories you shared from your school days in NYC. I agree: Broome Street Bar is a gem . . . and an historic site, to boot!
