Maison Kayser Walking around New York Babbo

Walking around New York

After a copious breakfast we decided to walk around a bit....

Don't know the name of the building but it certainly looks interesting.

The biggest library in New York City.

The Stephen A. Schwarzman Building of the New York Public Library, more widely known as the Main Branch or simply as "the New York Public Library".

With nearly 53 million items, the New York Public Library is the second largest public library in the United States (behind the Library of Congress), and fourth largest in the world. It is an independently managed, nonprofit corporation operating with both private and public financing.

The library, officially chartered as The New York Public Library, Astor, Lenox and Tilden Foundations, was developed in the 19th century, founded from an amalgamation of grass-roots libraries, and social libraries of bibliophiles and the wealthy, aided by the philanthropy of the wealthiest Americans of their age.


The Empire State building in the back ground.

The Empire State Building is a 102-story skyscraper located on Fifth Avenue between West 33rd and 34th Streets in Midtown, Manhattan. It has a roof height of 1,250 feet (381 m), and with its antenna spire included, it stands a total of 1,454 feet (443 m) high. Its name is derived from the nickname for New York, the Empire State. It stood as the world's tallest building for nearly 40 years, from its completion in early 1931 until the topping out of the original World Trade Center's North Tower in late 1970.


St. Patrick's Cathedral.

The church was under construction during our visit in 2013 and now it is totally renovated.



The cathedral can seat 2,200 worshippers and is built of bricks with a marble finish.  The huge cathedral is 101 meters long and 53 meters at its widest point.  The building has to steeples with rise 100 meters from the sidewalk and the roof is covered in slate from Maine.

The exquisite stained glass windows were crafted by artisans in Europe and Boston.


Beautiful carved door.

Apple store on 5th Avenue in New York.

This is an Iconic flagship NYC Apple Store at the corner of Central Park across from the former Plaza and Hotel.

Read the untold Story of how Apple Store Cube landed in Midtown New york.

Though it has been open for less than a decade, the Apple store under a 30foot square glass cube at the base GM building is already one of the best-known and most successful retail sites in the world.

The iconic glass staircase inside the store.

The Fifth Avenue retail store was last renovated in 2011 when larger, seamless panes of glass were installed.

The Iphone 7 was recently released and there were a lot of people in the store.


An interesting Church on our way to Babbo.
