This was my first experience of St. John the Divine, and my first real awareness of the big basalt rock base of Manhattan.
As always, I gravitated to the Metropolitan Museum, circling out to Cleopatra's Needle and adjacent Central Park.
This was my first experience of the Puerto Rican Day parade.
And I spent more time around Central Park.
Then there's Midtown.
And further south to 24th Street, Flatiron Building, Union Square, and NYU.
