In August I embarked on a trip with my brother to Mystic, Connecticut to pick up an upright bass that I purchased from Upton Bass. On our way to Mystic we wanted to spend a day in New York City because we have never been there before. We got a hotel in New Jersey and took a train into the city.

I took my camera and did the best I could, many of these were taken on one those double-decker buses you see clogging up the streets.
