New York


A study in tall buildings?

As a reward for our effort put into a particular project our incredibly generous clients shouted us a holiday in the big apple.


No trip to New York would be complete without a visit to the Guggenheim museum.

That's our team there Cameron, Vesna and myself soaking up the Wright stuff, picture courtesy of freaky German dude. The building is a little tatty outside but has a mint interior.


Cameron and I took in the N.Y. Yankees V's Blue Jay's and the N.Y. Yankees won! A brilliant stadium designed for the complete American pleb. Escalators all the way up so you don't have to do nasty walking, beer, hot dogs, nuts and crack-a-jacks delivered to your seat.

Fantastic crowd management on exit also dispersing the 47,000 odd (about half capacity) attending with ease.

Ground Zero. Pretty sombre place and a big hole. Enough said. After that we needed some cheering up. Who could resist the Hooters twins? Now that's what I call an 'active frontage' Vesna!
