Last October, I had the possibility to return to New York for the first time in 25 years and also visit Boston for the first time. It turned out to be a lovely way to see beautiful fall colors as well as being awed by the majestic scale of everything "over there".
New York is a lot to take in, from bagels and Brooklyn to kimchi in Koreatown. And a couple of skyscrapers and shops thrown in between. First stop was the High Line elevated park:
For me the three days (too few) in town were mostly spent walking around and getting to know the city. I was surprised how easy it was to see Manhattan on foot, and crossing the Hudson to get to Williamsburg and the rest of Brooklyn.
It was impossible for me to leave the city without witnessing Ground Zero:
However, a metropolis like the Big Apple survives and moves on from such horrible events and keeps evolving from its multicultural roots.

The Pena National palace in Sintra is a lovely excursion from Lisbon. In a lush green mountain setting just an hour's train ride from the city it's a fantastic show of what architectural fantasy can produce with enough money and resources. The colorful palace has housed both monks and kings and is a unique experience also for a photographer.
