From LONG ISLAND – by Ann Parry ( ann-parry.com )
April 13, 2017
Wednesday I covered the New York International Auto Show 2017, which I’d been looking forward to ever since NYIAS 2016. It was raining a bit when my train reached the city, so I bought an umbrella at Penn Station, mainly to protect my camera.
After a quick walk around the 3rd Floor, I caught the Porsche Press Conference, which was also the first one I caught last year. At the Exotics section I focused mainly on the Spyker C8 Preliator, Keonigsegg Agera RS, and the Rolls-Royce Dawn with its Spirit of Ecstasy bonnet ornament.

Lexus once again displayed eye-catching New York Fashion Week cars, and I had the chance to interview Beau Valenzuela, who was part of the SCPS Unlimited crew that created the programmable light display with roughly 42.000 LEDS on the Lexus LIT IS 350.

As I left Javits Center early that evening, I paused to capture the colorful reflections on its glass walls, then headed back to Penn Station.
Soon after the train started, I opened a not-cold-enough can of soda that sprayed on my Nikon and me. Yikes! Two neighbors gave me tissues, and a fellow across the aisle handed me lens spray and wipes. It turned out he shoots videos and was also returning from NYIAS, so we talked cars and photography and videos till I got up for my stop.
