On the way to the Sun Directory Master Event '09 in SomerSet, NJ, I stopped by to visit New-York. Weather was very nice and warm (30°C) and it was a pleasure to walk in Manhattan. I visited most of the main outdoor spots, Empire State Building, Central Park, 5th Avenue, Brooklyn Bridge, Greenwich Village, Times Square, Soho, etc.
I took the ferry from lower Manhattan to Staten Island to have a look at the Statue of Liberty. This was the second Statue of Liberty I could see in one week as a 3m tall copy offered by French sculptor Bartholdi stands in Roybon, a small town in France, not far from Grenoble (See below)
