Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

10/04/2005: New York State of Mind…

This is a pictorial piece of our New York City -Day In Manhattan. We had several hundred people in our group, but had a “Free” day to sight-see as we wished from our Hotel (the Marriott Marquis in Times Square) - so we joined our friends Pat and Colleen who are also Delta dealers from the Maritimes in Canada.

I’m following the basic outline of our day that included a walk through Times Square to the Empire State Building; Views from the Top of the Empire State Building Observatory; a subway trek to China Town, then walking to the Financial District to view Ground Zero; going to Battery Park overlooking the Hudson for a Beer/refreshment break; missing our Water Taxi back to the Hotel for our Reception and performance of “Phantom of the Opera” at the Majestic Theater; and Times Square at night from our room view.

Entrance to the Empire State Building

Built in 1931 and is 1250 feet tall

[It was meant to have an airport at the top for a Derigible Port, but they failed to account for the unpredictable prevailing winds and the project was abandoned.]

We Highly recommend the “Express Pass” to cut short the 1-1/2 hour wait for the Observation Deck
