New York. Day 3.

Continuing what I can only describe as a week of epic updates, Day 3 involved a trip down to Coney Island where I saw a roller-coaster that was closed for the winter. As you can also see, there weren't many other people about, either.

After having a go in a basketball cage, and surprising myself by hitting the ball more often than not, I met a group of folk on the gokart track -- after using my superior British driving skills to overtake three of them. We went for a beer and then down to see the sunset on Coney Island beach. There's me jumping off a rock in front of the sun. Admittedly, it's a bit of a cheat -- taken on my proper camera and (obviously) by someone else.

Went back to the hostel to freshen up and headed out to meet Producer Dave at the New Yorker. He'd already eaten, despite us agreeing beforehand that we'd get something when we met up. As time was of the essence, a McMeal was called for. I used the opportunity of being in Ronald's establishment to withdraw cash for a mere 99c and to take a photo of a sign which I found amusing. One has to wonder if there is a chap out the back with an array of stopwatches and a vendetta against those who chew their McFood thoroughly.

Many bars followed. Much time was spent in McSorley's, pictured, where much beer was drunk. Producer Dave pulled a woman ten years older than him and took her back to his hotel. I went back to my hostel to sleep.

Stay tuned for Day 4. Only on moblog fifty four forty.

McSorley's is a city landmark with a really fascinating history. I should probably take people there when they visit. Thanks for the idea.

Good series - love the no loitering!

Fabulous HL shot

the camera issue - just isn't an issue - sure Mat could come up with statistics on percentage of phone/camera shots - but was interesting to note that on the meet at Newark last week more pics were taken by cameras than phones
