“In a NEW YORK state of mind”… by Chris Lord …..Turn on the music and enjoy the guided tour.

Billy Joel sings of Riverside and the Hudson River in his well known song and Manhattan is indeed a narrow island where you are never far from a body of water.
To the west is the Hudson River and to the east the East River.
South of Manhattan is the Harbor and throughout are Parks with lakes, waterfalls, reflecting pools and ponds.
Lets “dive in” and let water tie together this series of photographs taken in New York City as we take a “wet” tour of the Big Apple.
