OK.  I left for Manhattan Monday, August 27, 2007.  My Dad drove me from Derry, NH, (and I saw a Mr. Muggles lookalike as we left town) to South Station in Boston, MA.  From there I took the Amtrak Acella to Penn Station in Manhattan.  Long trainride and I started to get motion sickness.  We'd just got near NYC, and the train slowed to a stop, when I saw something cool.



at first glance I just thought it was your garden variety Graffiti, but upon a closer look I noticed this:


No that's not a Photoshop, the skull has "Sylar" written on it.

Now for the next day, what you really probably wanted to see.  Pics from the actual tour.

I got up at 4:20am and walked from 8th ave and 45th to the NBC Universal Experience store and met some people in line:


As luck would have it, I wound up in line next to two friends from 9th Wonders BBoards Leek (girl in glasses far left) and SuperChris (girl in black, 2nd from right) both S'Army members.

Now for the star pics:



From Far left to near right:
Tim Sale, James Kyson Lee, Dania Ramirez, Zachary Quinto , Jeph Loeb, & Noah Gray-Cabey .  I got all their sigs on a shirt.  I hope they will do another tour and I can get the rest of the cast, (especially Christopher Eccleston's signature).  They were all very cool people.
2 more shots:

not so good, guy in frony of me had his elbow in the shot.



another one not as good a shot as I'd have liked.

I saw Tim Sale's paintings.  Incredible! Here are my two fav's:


Peter flying very cool.

and this one:


with a closeup:


I found the site of "Yatta!"

Right in Times Square, special thanks to the S'Army folks from 9th Wonders for giving awesome directions.

The next day I went looking for the site of the Deveaux Building and I found a few possibilities tough nothing that exactly matched the set they use in LA.  I did confirm that the Deveaux Building and the Zuul Building are not the same place because I did manage to find the lower half of the Zuul Building (Gozer Building AKA Spook Central):


I had done an article in heroes_tvabout this here.  Now I can dismiss the speculation.
No way is that the same building that Claude tossed Peter off of or that Hiro did that teleporting on the roof of.  Too close to Central Park itself for one...  But you do have to admit that it's really close to what we saw in Ghostbusters.

Please do not hotlink and if you take any of the photos just let me know, OK?

edtied 9/10/07 to add: By the way, for anyone wondering, I am female.

All the way from New Hampshire, wow! I'd be a bit mad if I came that far, it was so short XD; Glad you had fun though. I know I was uselessly flailing like a 13-year-old fangirl.

I loved seeing the art that didn't get featured on the show, that was way cool.

Nice photos! And nerdy graffiti = win XD

RE: All the way from New Hampshire
I'd been meaning to go back to NYC anyway, so the shortness didn't bug me.

Heck, if I could find my passport, and find out that Chris was gonna be at something like that, I'd have gone all the way to the UK LOL.

Ooo. Zuul building...I was all like "That looks more Ghostbusters than Heroes" when I skimmed it at first XD

I had postulated some time ago that the Deveaux building and "spook central" might be the same address, the former rebuilt on top of the ruins of the latter as both are in "Central Park West." But as you can see, "spook central" is closer to the park. Next trip I'll see if I can get better shots of possible Deveaux building candidates.

Very cool! I live in NYC (but I didn't go... I had class) but I find it extremely annoying that all the cool sets are filmed in LA! I WANT a Kirby Plaza :(

Cool graffiti sighting, I wouldn't even had recognized that as a skull. I wonder where exactly that is?

It's along a train route just before the train goes underground into NYC.

I was on board the acella. I dunno if that will make any difference.

I would have loved going, but I know I wouldn't have the patience for throngs of people. :o)

It wasn't that bad... the only trouble I had was walking back to Penn Station with my luggage
