I have returned from the Borough of Manhattan, having taken it by storm in much the same manner as the Duchy of Grand Fenwick did*, which is to say slipped in and out largely without notice or comment. However, while I was there, it occurred to me that many of my correspondents probably don't actually live close enough to Manhattan to regard it as a nice place for a walk and a neighbor that throws pretty good parties, so  I took some pictures and stuff.

So  I present--a virtual walk down Fifth Avenue. Or at least the bottom bit of it.

We begin in Grand Central Station:

The throbbing chrome and gunmetal madhouse of Tor Central:

It's not a photo of Manhattan without a blurry yellow cab in the foregraound:

Washington Square, at last. Hey, do I know this  guy?

These two are for stillsostrange:

And here's a bonus photo of the Stonewall memorial, because I like it:

Oh, and here's a cute photo of me La Datlow took at the reading, just because.  This one is not so cute, but totally in character.

That was a good walk.

And now I have to clean this house. I am blowing off climbing tonight, on grounds of Le Tired, but that doesn't excuse me from firing the missiles.

*I read that book when I was young enough that my major remembrance of it is having been amused that the Grand Duchess adored pomegranates, which I also loved, and this was long enough that the supermarket clerks still looked at you funny when you bought them.
