I met my friend Marisa for lunch in Chinatown, and also to go back and buy those glasses which are apparently a steal. I was early, she was late, so I walked around and took pictures. It’s a gorgeous, perfect day for it.
First up is the Chrysler Building.
This is the Manhattan Bridge. I can never keep the bridges in the East River straight. I only know which is which because of a mnemonic someone once taught me. BMT. That’s a subway line, and also the initials of the bridges going from downtown to uptown. The one furthest downtown is the Brooklyn Bridge, followed by the Manhattan and last is the Triborough.
I also can’t keep the buildings straight. I think this is the Municipal Building and maybe One Police Plaza is in there along with City Hall? I don’t know. I totally fail as a New Yorker.
