Im guilty of looking towards the sky everytime I ride into Manhattan, yes from the passenger seat of course. When walking in the streets of NYC it's a better idea to look forward to avoid running into to others or worse yet running into a moving bus or taxi. If you would like to blend in amongst New Yorkers its best if you keep your eyes forward and head level. Nothing makes you look more like a tourist than carrying a camera and looking up to the sky. Thats how I got this shot and a stiff tourist neck......hahaha So here is my tourist PoV of the ESB just for you so you can avoid nursing a "Stiff tourist neck"
