ABC Wednesday - N

N is for Navy...the US NavyThe US Navy was in New York City last week. The three men are looking out over New York City from the 86th floor of the Empire State Building.
All is well down below.
Lower Manhattan. Squint your eyes and see Chinatown, Little Italy, Greenwich Village, SOHO and Wall Street. At Battery Park, the very tip of Manhattan is where the East River and the Hudson River converge. The Hudson River is the one on the right hand side of Manhattan. If you squint once again the island in the Hudson you'll see the Statue of Liberty.
You'll find some other great N postings hosted by Mrs. Nesbitt at ABC Wednesday.

Great shots and wonderful choice for 'N'
I have seen the Empire State building in movies on Star Movies, and always wanted to go up there one day.

Good post for N. Never have made it to New York but wouldn't mind a brief visit someday. Too big for my small town roots to handle long term. One million in our city is enough, thanks. :)
