A few extras from my trip to New York. Above is a photo from my room at the Wyndham Garden Times Square South. The room was really small, but pretty nice anyway. After I checked in and got to the room I looked out the window and saw this:

I hope she’s ok. Later on at night I looked out again and saw this:
