Lately I've been in the habit of taking my camera with me whenever I leave the house, regardless of the purpose of the trip.  The result is obvious: I take a lot more pictures, but its good practice.  A few from the past week: 

The New York Public Library's facade revealed after months of restoration: 



Grand Central Terminal (not station) with the iconic Chrysler Building behind (HDR photo): 



The Empire State Building from 34th & Madison Avenue: 



The American Radiator Building, now the Bryant Park Hotel, with the Empire State Building behind: 



Midtown Manhattan taken from the tiny window near the elevators on our floor: 



The Big Apple: one of the top tourist destinations in New York City, the 24-hour 5th Avenue Apple store: 



* My mom loves her new Verizon iPhone, as does Jessica's mom. 

The Uptown 6 train at 28th & Park Avenue (stay behind the yellow line): 



The New York Life Building near Madison Square Park: 



* The builders hoped to rival the recently completed Empire State Building with an enormous skyscraper, but ran out of money during the Great Depression. This stubby building sits atop a foundation built to support a building nearly 100 stories tall, but today tops out around 30. 

The Plaza Hotel at the corner of 5th Avenue and Central Park South:
