    Broadway Musical

    October 9 in the United States

    Heute geht es an den Broadway in das sicherlich mit Abstand coolste Musical 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻. Doch da müssen wir leider noch bis heute Abend warten 😕.

    Durch das Musical heute Abend können wir den Sonnenuntergang auf dem Empire State Building leider nicht mehr in Angriff nehmen. Aber das nehme ich (Sophie) dafür gerne in Kauf. Daher starten wir den Tag heute mit dem Empire State Building in der Hoffnung, dass das Wetter uns nicht schon wieder einen Strich durch die Rechnung macht.
    Es ist zwar bewölkt, aber die Wolken hängen nicht so tief wie die letzten Tage. Und da uns so oder so keine Alternative bleibt, nehmen wir die Auffahrt in Angriff. Trotz der Wolken ist der Blick über Manhattan sehr beeindruckend, auch wenn Downtown schon ganz leicht im Nebel verschwindet.

    Nachdem wir wieder auf Ground Level sind, machen wir uns auf Richtung Central Park. Eigentlich wollten wir uns einen ganzen Tag für den Central Park gönnen, er ist ja nicht gerade klein, aber da wir unsere anderen Aktivitäten durch das Wetter immer verschieben mussten, bleiben uns nun nur noch 1,5 Stunden. Wir starten beim Central Park Zoo, der schon geschlossen hat, schlendern die berühmte "The Mall" Straße entlang, welche man gefühlt in jedem Film, der in NYC spielt, sieht und kommen am Platz der Bethesda Fountain an, der jedem, der Kevin alleine in New York gesehen hat, nur zu bekannt vorkommt. Weiter geht es zu den Strawberry Fields, ein Denkmal welches zu Ehren John Lennons errichtet wurde. Da heute John Lennons Geburtstag wäre, ist hier einiges los. Viele Leute haben sich an dem Denkmal versammelt und spielen und singen Lieder von den Beatles.

    Für uns wird es nun allerdings Zeit Richtung Broadway zu gehen. Wir wollen ja nicht zu spät kommen, immerhin habe ich mich schon den ganzen Tag auf mein Geburtstagsgeschenk gefreut 😊. Ich würde ja sagen, dass ein Kindheitstraum in Erfüllung geht, aber so lange gibt es den Film, geschweige denn das Musical, ja noch gar nicht. Aber zumindest fühlt es sich so an 😊.
    Endlich geht der Vorhang auf und Anna und Elsa betreten die Bühne. Wir sind sowohl von den Bühnenbildern als auch von den Darstellern vollauf begeistert. In der gesanglichen Leistung merkt man doch schon einen erheblichen Unterschied zu den Musicals in Deutschland, welche auch sehr gut sind.
    Für die nicht so eingefleischten Disney Fans, wir haben uns das Broadway Musical Frozen ❄ angeguckt 😉.

    Nach dem Musical gehen wir heute endlich auf Top of the Rock und auch der Blick über Manhattan bei Nacht ist unglaublich. Bevor wir, mittlerweile schon halb verhungert, den Heimweg antreten, gibt es noch eine Kleinigkeit bei 5 Napkins.

    New York!

    November 5, 2017 in the United States

    Caught the train from Boston to NYC (hightlight was our giant cinnamon scrolls - we were the envy of the entire carriage). We arrived late afternoon and headed to Madison Square Garden (across the road from our hotel) for an NBL game - NY Knicks vs Indiana Pacers. Knicks came from behind to win 108-101! Very exciting 🏀 Apparently I am a mad sports fan now! Lauren would be proud.

    Looking for Liz Lemon

    November 6, 2017 in the United States

    New York day 2 included 30 Rock (Tina Fey must have been at lunch), Radio City, the Guggenheim, and the Empire State Building at night. We went up at around 9pm and it was amazing. Despite a rainy cloudy day, it was so clear up there but absolutely freezing!

    Empire State Building

    November 7, 2017 in the United States

    Our Hotel- Hotel Pennsylvania, is opposite Penn Station & Madison Square Garden. Also just around the corner from the Empire State Building- we decided to go to the top last night- freezing cold but amazing views of the lights of Manhattan.

    Empire State Building, New-York, USA

    August 17, 2017 in the United States

    Hier nous sommes allés à l'Empire State Building. Grâce à nos city pass, nous avons sauté 30 minutes de queue. En haut nous avons eu une vue magnifique sur toute la ville. Sur la plateforme du dessus, nous pouvions entrer dans une pièce dans laquelle il y avait des lumières au plafond qui nous suivaient : c'était grave cool.

    New York, New York

    Empire State Building (NYC)

    August 16 in the United States

    Dritter Tag, dritter Turm,...

    Heute früh geht es für uns als erstes zum weltberühmten Empire State Building, den dieses gehört (für uns persönlich) zum absoluten Pflichtprogramm New Yorks. Wir haben Glück und die sonst (vor allem Nachmittags) enormen (oft stundenlangen) Wartezeiten bleiben auch hier aus. Wir warten lediglich ca 10 Minuten bis wir zur ersten Aussichtsplattform auf Level 80 fahren können. Von dort nehmen wir dann allerdings die Treppe bis zur zweiten Plattform, da wir auf Grund der geringeren Kapazitäten der oberen Aufzüge die ansonsten eine knappe Stunde warten müssten. (sind ja nur 6 Stockwerke)Read more

    NEW YORK CITY, USA

    July 11 in the United States

    USA!!! ❤️ Taking a bite of the Big Apple. Thanks to the London time difference we have been up at 4am- and it's kind of nice to be out and about before The City That Never Sleeps wakes up. Staying in Manhattan. Doing the usual tourist stuff: Staten Island Ferry to view the Statue of Liberty, saw the 9/11 Memorial (actually quite sobering), walked through Times Square, played in Central Park (aptly dubbed the NY Tree Museum by Buz), took a cab, took the subway, and getting in a good amount of steps on the Fitbit. Still so much to tick off the list! Leonard Cohen songs running through my head, and Buz has been playing Sinatra. Oh, and how could I forget: American shopping! 😁. After wearing the same clothes for 4 months it is a real treat to not only get new clothes, but to find pants that fit a vertically challenged person with an American butt! Even Buz, Zach, & Jesse found some new duds and I was a lucky lady to be surrounded by such handsome men at the deli last night!

    TUESDAY
    NYC was fun! I love big cities: interesting people watching and an endless to-do list. The boys prefer the country- something about dirty streets, weird smells, second-hand smoke, and crowds with many 'interesting' people. Still, we all enjoyed ourselves. We ticked a lot of the boxes in addition to those already mentioned- walking over Brooklyn Bridge, Museum of Natural History, Empire State Building, Flatiron Building, Grand Central Station... and of course we watched France win the World Cup. Highlight was the Museum of Natural History- wow! Dinosaur bones, African animal exhibit, so many hands-on science experiments and a cool movie about the Big Bang Theory.

    From Brooklyn to Boston

    July 2, 2017 in the United States

    1st train journey down, 4 more to go in our #jkrailing adventures across the USA. This first journey took us from New York Pennsylvania Station to Boston Back Bay on the North East Regional line. It took almost exactly 4 hours and was really beautiful especially as we were travelling in 'golden hour'. As I can only post one video and no pictures per 'footprint' I wanted to share our farewell to the NYC skyline.Read more

    Day 17, New York - Disembakation Day

    September 17, 2017 in the United States

    So today was the day we had to leave our floating luxury hotel after 15 fantastic days. It's been amazing. So we decided to be up early this morning to see us sail in to New York, alarm was set for 4.45am 😴 😴 It was still dark and still foggy but a lot warmer and well worth doing. We sailed right up by the Statue of Liberty, past Manhattan before finally docking on our berth in Brooklyn. The waters were as calm as anything. At 5am the decks were full of people doing the same thing.

    All the restaurants and buffets were open extra early this morning as they want the ship empty by 11am. As we were up and about early we decided one last meal downstairs in the restaurant rather than the buffet. It's great to be served and to say goodbye to some of the waiters we've got to know. A final cup of tea and a couple of Lemon Danish pastries at the back of the ship overlooking Brooklyn Bridge to the right and Manhattan to left, before picking our carry on luggage up and heading for Club Fusion to disembark 🙁.

    Once off the ship we were greeted with US immigration, always a pleasure (NOT) but to be fair it was quite painless this morning. By 9.30am we were in a taxi to our hotel, The Marriott in Chelsea, Manhattan. It's quite nice and extremely central, just 5 minutes to the Empire State Building and about a 20 minute walk to Times Square. Our trip took us over the Brooklyn Bridge and up through downtown Manhattan. Traffic was horrendous due to the UN Conference taking place all this week. We've just seen on the news that Donald has arrived Safely at Trump Towers !!

    As our room wasn't ready, we left our luggage with the concierge service and set of in to town, heading for Times Square. We stopped of at Macy's for some lunch along the way. The weather was very warm but very cloudy. We've done little more but walk around all day, 10 miles according to Fitbit. We had tea in Grand Central Station and had a wander in to The Grand Hyatt where we stayed last time.

    It's 9pm here now, still 24 degrees and we're just back at the hotel totally knackered. Although it was the last day on the ship, we've still got a couple of days here to enjoy, and it's a lot warmer - have I mentioned the weather at all over the last couple of weeks?

    So that's it from us tonight, more tomorrow.
