Tudor Hotel was located at the crossing of the 2nd Avenue and the 42nd Street. We headed west and then lounged on the 5th Avenue. Cops were everywhere on the street. I don't know if walking there was safe or not. The roads were so narrow that when a police car went off its siren, no one could give way, so that the police car had to take an opposite direction lane. More surprisingly, a fire engine's siren was going off at a crossing, all other cars kept going as if they didn't hear it. Unlike in Southern California, once a siren of an emergency vehicle goes off, all other cars give way to it immediately.

On the 5th Avenue we saw a lot of buildings which were buried in the movie Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970), including the Grand Central Terminal, the New York Public Library, and the St. Patrick's Cathedral. However, we couldn't find the Queensboro Plaza subway station, which seemed to be not in Manhattan.
