Dave!New York City is pretty sweet any time of day, but I think I like it at nighttime the best.

Last night I decided to venture out into the city once again so I could see the Apple Store lit up in all its glory. And, yes, it's pretty sweet. The way the Apple logo reflects into the glass is almost holographic-looking, and you can see everything a lot better because the reflections from neighboring buildings is not so bad. It is truly a beautiful structure, so kudos to Steve Jobs and his cube obsession for giving New York City another landmark piece of architecture...

Not to say that there aren't a lot of other buildings that look great at night...

Most of today was spent at the American Museum of Natural History. Not only did they have a freakin' cool exhibit on lizards (which I love), but there's a new Space Show narrated by Robert Redford called Cosmic Collisions, and an IMAX film I haven't seen called Amazing Caves. It's a pretty sweet place to spend an afternoon. How many places can you see giant dinosaur bones in one hall...

And then see a statue of a chubby doggy in the next?

Today was my last day in NYC, and I'm kind of sad about that.

    Mahalo for the picture of Apple Store at night time. Just what I imagined. I’m going to be there in Oct. I’m very excited leaving this rock for a month.
    It also reminded me what Paul Cezanne said…He said he could paint anything with square, round and triangle forms.

    Hi Dave, first time commenting, but long-time reader. Just had to chime in that the IMAX cave movie is really great, we saw it when we lived in Little Rock. (now in PA) Also, since reading your blog, I’ve been investigating the Mac, (currently a Windows-whore) and we’ll be ready to replace our computer in a year or so, and I think I’ve about got my husband convinced to convert to a MAC! He was as shocked as I was.
    Anyway, love your blog, love your opinions, and love the motorcycle. Keep up the great work.
    I have a blog too, if you’re suffering from insomnia and want something to help, check it out.
    I don’t have time to blog everyday, if you read you’ll know why, 3 kids, 3 dogs, self-employed, Search and Rescue volunteer, and…oh, a husband. That’s a full-time job in itself, you know men, being so needy and all…

    Sorry, couldn’t help that last bit. 🙂

    Much MUCH cooler at night.

  4. CP says:

    Aw. You made me homesick.

    I miss New York City so much.

    Thank Dog I go up there twice a year.


  5. Chanakin says:

    Cool pics!

    Most people just photograph Time Sqaure and say “this is New York.”

  6. Jakwee says:

    Wow Dave! You really did make the best of your time there, didn’t you? I will have to be sure to take some nighttime city walks this weekend while I’m there.

    Great pics!

  7. Janet says:

    My but this post was beautiful. It really is too bad you’re leaving. My adventure is just beginning.

  8. The Ref, LGC, England says:

    Quite simply NYC is the best city I have ever been to and I really want to go back there soon.

  9. Laurence says:

    Sans aucune hésitation, je préfère NYC la nuit.
    It is beautiful… C’est magique ! Oui, magique…

  10. Neil says:

    No visit to the museum is complete without some sort of useless souvenier. Any dinosaur pencils?

  11. Eve says:

    Those are really great nighttime shots. NYC is definitely beautiful at night. Museum of National History is awesome. When I was a teen, that’s where they had the midnight weekend laser shows, where you’d sit in the Planetarium to watch its laser show accompanied by Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd (and for a while, Rush, Van Halen, the Police, and Genesis in one show.) Good times. Anyhow, I’d LOVE to see that new Amazing Caves film (love caves, that’s where bats live, and I love bats). I have to check that out.

  12. Bec says:

    Everytime I see phots of NYC it just makes me want to sell everything I own and buy a plane ticket, find a blind stupid (reasonbly) rich resident who would wants to marry me and live there forever.

  13. Kristy says:

    I’m so glad you’re having a good time. Hard to come back home to the farm after New York City–at least, that’s what I’m betting. Haven’t been, myself. Yet.

  14. ms. sizzle says:

    do you think about moving there? (not to the museum, to nyc) 😉

  15. babyoog says:

    Wow – fun trip. I am jealous. I will have to hope a train up there one of these days!

  16. Tracy says:

    I can’t wait to see the Apple store…I’m going to be in NYC next month…will have to add that to my “must visit” list!

  17. Bre says:

    Did you happen across a petite brunette singing show tunes as she skipped arm and arm with her best friend across the city? That was my baby sister who doesn’t want to return from her vacation!

  18. Deb_LA says:

    I’m moving back there soon and I have to say, you just made me very excited to do so. Yippee!

  19. jali says:

    I’m homesick too! Great photos and as always great posts.

  20. Charred says:

    Someday I, too, will get around to visiting NYC.


  21. ChillyWilly says:

    I’m still so fricking jealous of you. I was on the opposite side of the US in California, specifically Victorville, Anaheim and Los Angeles… none of it business related, mostly family.

    No Apple store visits for me this time, although I really did want to see the store at The Grove (which is in download L.A.).

    Someday, NYC will see me again. Glad you enjoyed your time there.
