New York City....





Yes, this is in New York, although you could be excused if you thought they were more images of France!! I do tend to lean towards the Parisian style of architecture no matter where I am....or is it that the French have such an influence further afield.
The second photo is an apartment building, built by a wealthy French gentleman, the story goes that he actually had his own private farm on the large roof top balcony...yes, cows, sheep, chickens etc.etc...or did I just get too much sun that day???...it sounded a bit far fetched to me!!
The last photo was taken in Central Park, which I just adored...it was so hard to believe that you could be in such a 'huge' park which is in the middle of such a busy vibrant city....amazing!!

I love New York. It has always been one of my favourite places in the world. Mind you, just to visit, not to live! Beautiful photo's!

Linda,
I don't think you got too much sun that day. Nothing is far-fetched when it comes to NYC! So glad you had a good time.
