|Trip to New York|

After I finished the Spring 2005 semester at USC, I took a trip to NYC. I found a $216 round-trip flight, flew there on a Sunday, stayed there through Thursday morning, and flew back that night.
This is the Youth Hostel where I stayed for $30/night: http://www.hinewyork.org/
It's located in the Upper West Side, on Amsterdam & 103rd street.
You can take the subways everywhere in New York
World Trade Center site
World Trade Center Path Station
Wall Street. It's a short, small street.
Views from on top of the Empire State building
I walked half way across the Brooklyn bridge
Grand Central Terminal
Inside the terminal
I visited Columbia University
I took the free ferry to Staten Island. We passed by the Statue of Liberty.
Update, April 2007: Okay, okay, I admit it: all of the picture with me in it are all faked. I Photoshopped myself into these images. So these are "photo illustrations" rather than photos. However, I did go to all of those places, and I did see all of the things pictured above. I just didn't have a camera along. (Yes, even the picture of me in the red shirt on the Brooklyn bridge is faked). Over the years, I've got half a dozen comments from people pointing out that it's obvious that the pictures are faked, so I might as well admit it up front.
