Ok maybe I should say something about yesterday. We spend day travelling from philadelphia to new york. Yeah I know it’s only one and a half hour by car but we didn’t rented one because taking a plane was just about 20€…. but maybe another year if we can avoid to take a taxi…
We arrived our hotel around 6.00 pm after a hard flight with so many side wing… for sure not my best trip. And the taxi was even worst. As we had time and we were not so tired we decided to cross walking manhattan fron east to west and see the high line. It was beautiful but weather was very cold and windy. Then we come back to our hotel to sleep after a pizza dinner.
Today we went by subway to south manhattan starting in the zero ground that it’s incredible wonderful, even if it has lot of scaffolding. Then we moved to see trinity church and it’s cementery before come back to give a fast looking to century21 comercial center.
Next stop was the famous bull’s sculpure that was covered by people so it as almost impossible to see so we moved a little more to the south to take the staten island’s ferry to see the liberty statue without stoping in liberty island. It’s a half an hour more or less trip and it’s enought. I spected more from the statue that is quite smaller than it looks in movies :-[
We walked a little to wall street to see the bank schange building, but again all was plenty of scaffolding so it looked not so much impressive for me. Moved to pier 17 comercial center near brookling bridge and again was dissapointing so we eated a hotdog in a park close to it even with the cold weather. Hot dogs was at leas better than I thought, and I like a lot classical american mustard.
Next stop was the city hall that is so beautiful!… at least the small part without scaffoldings:-! Let’s try with brookling bridge that al people told us it has incredible views.
We almost crossed walking the bridge and it’s true that it has amazing views when you can look outside the f***ing scaffoldings. Bridge itself will be absolutely a reccomended visit from 2014 on when they finish the works…
We’re a little tired now, we are walking since 9.30am and now are around 5.00pm, we took the subway to the 14th and walked another half an hour till the 18th with the 8th to see a posters store… that was closed we’re the luckiest couple in the world this day I think! 🙂
A coffe and a cookie to recover a little and we went to hotel to rest a little before dinner. Now i’m writting from the bed and hope to recover enought to go out to look for a restaurant.
See you tomorrow!
