For more than thirty years we spent Christmas in Blackpool staying with Lesley's mother, Margaret. Now sadly Margaret is lying in a care home with severe dementia.
George is doing his own thing so in 2015 we decided to spend a few days in Weymouth over Christmas. This was fine except that on Christmas Day we could not find anywhere for lunch.
So for 2016, I decided that we would stick to the seaside theme but go to a seaside place where we would be sure of finding food on Christmas Day. New York City sprang to mind.

A Norwegian Air Shuttle Dreamliner took us from Gatwick to JFK. I had not realised that food on cheap air flights is now an optional, chargeable extra so we had to starve for eight hours.
On our USA trip in 2012 we had to queue for 90 minutes to get through US immigration. This time it was only about 75 minutes but despite that we got to our hotel before midnight local time.

First impressions
2016-12-28 11:49:08 Fr:16C342 Sq:210902
My first and ongoing reaction to New York City is: I have seen all this in the movies. I already knew that the "Bronx is up and the Battery’s down" - important because it is the reverse of British usage where you go "up" to London.
This is the view if you climb out on to the fire escape of our hotel.

Cropped out of the previous image. The Marrakech Hotel at 2588 Broadway on the corner of 103rd street. I assume the hotel occupies all four of the upper floors of this building and there is no elevator! Fortunately we were on what the Americans call the second floor.

The choir parapet of notable figures from each century since the birth of Christ here we see, from right to left: 14xx Christopher Columbus, 15xx Galileo, 16xx Shakespeare, 17xx George Washington and 18xx Abraham Lincoln. The parapet was installed in 1922 and they left the last niche empty until the century had ended.

The building that New Yorkers call the Port Authority is in fact a bus terminal. Nearby it and parodying the name Lesley spotted the Beer Authority. Which is a hopeful sign that the USA is not a total lager desert. The place has sixty taps serving this wide range of beers.

Subway
Harry Beck designed a diagrammatic map of the London Underground back in 1931. But the Metropolitan Transportation Authority sticks doggedly to this approximately geographical format. Points to note: it has been rotated about 30° anti-clockwise from north-up so Manhattan is straight up and down and Central Park looks unnaturally wide because of stretching needed to show the detail in Midtown.
I also found this even more complicated map dated 2010 June in their archive.

Getting about NYC is generally quite easy with their boring grid system of streets and avenues. But one trap to catch the unwary is that you can have separate subway stations with the same name. There are three stations called 103rd Street in Manhattan at least a kilometre apart from each other and another in Queens. This is 103rd Street served by the 1 train.
Those parts of the subway which are actually underground were mainly built by cut-and-cover. Here we are looking up at the sky. Up top these are just metal grilles in the cetral reservation of Broadway.

The guard rides in a tiny cubicle midway down the train. These monitors, I think at 103rd Street for the 1 train, enable them to check the state of the closing doors

South Ferry station is the downtown terminus of the 1 train. It is built on a very tight curve - you can only get out from the first few cars and they have these extending platforms to cover the gap. These three imaages show the platform extended - note two yellow strips and …

An hallmark of the New York subway is the lines of pillars close to the platform edge arising from they way they do cut-and-cover. This is Fulton Street station on the J and Z lines.
2016-12-28 12:21:22 Fr:16C345 Sq:231244
An exception to the cut-and-cover construction had to be used at Washington Heights which include the highest natural point in Manhattan at 81 metres (265 feet) above sea level. So the platforms here at 181st Street station on the 1 tunnelling construction was used. The line is reached by "three massive elevators" and and we have a wide space free of pillars.

Clearly the subway builders were not familiar with deep tube building techniques. There was a fatal accident during construction in 1903 and in 2009 an eight metre long section of the brick lining collapsed.
2016-12-28 12:22:48 Fr:16C346 Sq:23124514
And even here, if we look in the opposite direction along the platform, they have reverted to their beloved pillars.

Emma Lazarus wrote The New Colossus, a sonnet which appears on a plaque in the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. It includes the words: Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
To get us in the mood, they force us into an huddled mass waiting for the security screening which is almost as strict as airport security.

As well as being at full capacity, they are worried that the present bridge may collapse because it was built on the cheap and uses the same style as a bridge in Minneapolis which collapsed in 2007.
The location of this bridge was chosen because it was the closest they could get to New York City without the bridge coming under the Port Authority who would have demanded the tolls. Compare with the Thames where the City of London's control of the river extends a long way up and downstream from the city.
