Zabar's Incredible Journey






















I've been waiting for the right opportunity to share my New York pictures with you, and since the The Three Muses' new challenge is about journeys, I thought I would let Zabar the Amazing Tour Guide, seen on the journal page above, take you on an Incredible Journey of the city, starting with Central Park, continuing through the Upper East and West Sides, Greenwich Village, Soho, Harlem, and ending with a view from the Top of the Rock. I made this page in about an hour (One Powerful Hour) before the trip and journaled about the highpoints of the trip on the ride home.

Great collage and fantastic pictures of the city.
I live 90 min. from NYC, 10 min. away from the train station. But , I have not been to NYC in years and that is many, many years...
I think it is because most of my neighbors live and work in the city and weekend and summer here….
Therefore, who needs to go to the city when the city comes to you?

Alberta, when I was 19, my aunt took me to New York and we had a moonlit carriage ride around Central Park I thought it was the most magical thing I'd ever done! I've really enjoyed your photographs. Please pop over to my blog, when you have time and collect the award I've left there for you x

Love Zabar! I also adore NY! It's my favorite city, although Chicago is starting to grow on me. But there's no place like NY. Such energy and excitement! Thanks for sharing the pics-they're lovely.
