moost unique and diverse city
New York's greatest attractions are found on Manhattan Island, which is connected to the rest of the city and New Jerrcy by Suspension bridges, tunnels,and ferries.If you are fancy at museum, then the Statue of Laiberty would be the most famous landmark you should visit. I felt a little frustrated at getting around in New York city. Buses lines,Subways,taxies and ferries were driving me crasy.
David Letterman's The Late Show
There we were lamenting the high cost of Broadway Show tickets at the TKTS booth when up pops this guy from the Late Show asking us if we wanted tickets...
All we had to do was correctly answer a question about the show and the tickets we ours! Luckily my partner in crime is a bit of a fan and the tickets were in the bag!
We had managed to avoid Bruce Willis' entourage on his visit to Planet Hollywood in Times Square (I even got a free 'mlife' t-shirt as a souvenir), so guess who we had as a guest of the show!?
He would late pop up in Hawai'i - we thought he was stalking us!
Anyway, if you fancy tickets lurk around the TKTS booth in Times Square and you never know your luck...
Do everything that New York...
Do everything that New York offers!
Really, you must watch a Broadway play, go for poetry readings in Barnes & Nobles bookstores, take a cruise to the Statue of Liberty, acquaint yourself with Central Park (in the day), visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Guggenheim Museum, take the ride up to the top of the Empire State Building, take a look at the Plaza Hotel, go shopping at Macy's 34th Street, walk on 5th Avenue, attend Mass at St. Patrick's, use the trains and buses (in the day), and visit quaint places like SoHo, Tribeca and Greenwich Village, and... For me, it was being on my own, entirely on my own, for about 3 hours in New York.
I really liked that sense of independence... I took a bus from 5th Avenue towards the Empire State Building on 33rd Street! :p
It might seem odd for someone so old to be so thrilled at this almost inane 'triumph' -- but it was meaningful for me... and i enjoyed every minute of it!
I made my way to the Empire State Building that day, bought my ticket and made my way up to the observatory deck... feeling excited and really thrilled that I'd a chance to do so...
and there I was, on the deck made famous in 'Sleepless in Seatle' and it was beautiful! I walked around a few times, took a few shots -- and even though it was a rather cloudy day, and I couldn't see to forever... it was enough.
I'd go look for the photos and place them here soon...
eat at Vynl restaurant on...
eat at Vynl restaurant on Ninth Avenue. There is something for everyone. I highly recommend the sesame chicken with jasmine rice. There is always something to do in NYC. When I'm away, like I am now, I miss the hustle and bustle like mad.
Wherever you are in NY, you can always get a bagel and a cup of coffee from a street vendor. And that's why I love this city. Really cheap, but delicious, I really miss NY bagels now I can no longer get hold of them. There's now't like a cream cheese bagel. Eating my cream cheese bagel and herbal tea at Grand Central Station, watching the world go by.
