Recently I visited New York for the first time. This is a city I have been wanting to visit for a long time so with only 6 days it is difficult to decide what to do as there is so much to see and do in this city. Over the next week or so I will be showing some of my images captured during the visit.
This view is taken from the Manhattan Bridge and shows the Brooklyn Bridge in the foreground with the distinctive skyline of the Financial District of Manhattan Island in the background.
New York City has a population of over 8 million, the most populous city in USA, and comprises of five boroughs; Manhattan, The Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. Both New York state and New York City were named for the 17th Century Duke of York, James Stuart, the future James II and VII of England and Scotland.
