July 4th: Happy Independence Day 2011, USA [New York photos]

Seeing as today is Independence Day in the US, I thought I’d get in the mood by posting up a small selection of photos from my New York visits over the years.

The Welsh connection
There’s a strong (and little known) Welsh connection here too. Twenty per cent of the Pilgrim Fathers of America were Welsh, and almost half of the signatories to the American Declaration of Independence were also Welsh or of Welsh heritage. One in fact, was born close to my home city in south Wales, with Francis Lewis claiming Llandaff as his hometown [source].
