New York


Well, it's been a while, but here are some picks from the Big Apple. I went there because an old friend from thirty years ago was going to be there from Israel. He is comics artist Michael Netzer.



This is a shot of Mike sketching Dr. Strange


Having visited with my old pal from back in the day, My son Derek and I then went about seeing some of the sights:


First on the list was Times Square





Here is a shot of the Hard Rock Cafe


The next day we went down to Battery Park and I got this shot of the Statue of Liberty



We then went past ground zero (yes, five years later and there is still a hole in the ground)


McSorley's Old ale house. This place has been here for 153 years. The first time I was in here was 27 years ago. Unfortunately, my son was not allowed in.





Then we stopped by the Empire State Building (no sign of King Kong)

Fire station on 31st Street near our hotel. The heroes of 9/11 relaxing after a call


Yes, all in all it was a great weekend. My son got to see one of my favorite places in the whole world, I got to see a friend that I have not seen since high school, and the best part is that the flight and hotel were paid for by using points accrued while traveling for work.

Oh, I see...... you were waiting for your friend's beard to come in before you posted! :-)

That's a great Dr. Strange. I recently got to read a bunch of the 70s Frank Brunner stuff that I'd only seen a little of as a kid.

Your friend looks talented. I do a little illustrating myself.
