A Look Back At The 2019 New York International Auto Show

The 2019 New York International Auto Show has come and gone but the memories will last forever or at least until next year. It’s always a blast heading to the New York International Auto Show at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center to check out all the new vehicles from automakers around the world; even those high-end, luxury vehicles we can only dream about.

I enjoy getting an up close and personal look and feel at some of my favorites (including vehicles from Kia, Jeep, Ford, Dodge, Chevy, Toyota, Audi, Lexus . . . just to name a few), learning about the latest technologies, advancements and innovations in the automotive industry, feeling a sense of nostalgia seeing classic and vintage vehicles and taking in and enjoying the experience. It’s a fun and great event for individuals, friends and families alike.

Here are some photos that I took at this year’s New York International Auto Show:

I’m looking forward to next year’s New York International Auto Show.

2019 New York International Auto Show

The 2019 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) makes its return to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center this Friday. From coupes to sedans, SUVs to trucks, new vehicles to future concept cars, the New York International Auto Show is a showcase for nearly 1,000 vehicles spread across four floors of the convention center and offers a look at some of the latest technologies and innovations from automakers around the world.

From walking the show floor and exhibit halls to getting into vehicles for a hands-on, look & feel experience to participating in a ride-along or test drive (ex: Camp Jeep Ride & Drive), the New York International Auto Show is a fun and enjoyable event for auto enthusiasts, individuals and families alike and a great way to spend a few hours of your day.

NYIAS starts on Friday, April 19th and runs through Sunday, April 28th with an opening ceremony taking place on Saturday, April 20th from 8:30am to 10:30am. The event is open to the public, but you do need to purchase tickets for the event available on the New York International Auto Show website.

For me, it’s always fun heading to the auto show to check out some of the latest vehicles coming to market, the emerging technologies and innovations in the industry and seeing some of the concept cars in development. I also like the hands-on experience. Having the opportunity to get into vehicles from a variety of automakers and get an up-close look & feel. It’s a great opportunity to check out different vehicles (cars, SUVs, trucks) which you might not ordinarily do unless you are in the market to buy or lease a new vehicle. Of course, what’s an auto show without a sense of nostalgia seeing some of the vintage classics on display.

I’m looking forward to checking out the new vehicles at this year’s NYIAS.

“There’s more in the making” . . . Apple announces October 30th Special Event

A day before pre-orders began for Apple’s all-new iPhone XR, Apple announced a highly rumored and anticipated October Special Event last Thursday. The Special Event will take place in one week on Tuesday, October 30th at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn, New York. The event will begin at 10am ET (not PT) and will also be live streamed on Apple’s website.

There have been quite a few rumors about what Apple might showcase at its event next week including new iPad Pros featuring a thinner bezel, Face ID support and the move from a lightning connector to USB-C, a new lower cost replacement for the MacBook Air, a possible refresh for the MacBook and a refresh of the Mac Mini and/or possibly a pro-level Mac Mini.

Will AirPower finally make an appearance or will we at least get an update on its status? Apple first announced AirPower last Fall; however, we have heard little about it since then. Apple also announced that a new wireless charging case for the AirPods was in the works, but it too has yet to make an appearance. A second generation of the AirPods is supposedly in the works as is a second generation Apple Pencil, both of which could be announced at next week’s event.

We’re just a week away from Apple’s October Special Event so stay tuned!
