    28th birthday in New York!

    October 23, 2017 in the United States

    We managed a quick trip into town for lunch while the kids were at school.
    Had to do lunch like a true tourist at the hard rock cafe. Thank goodness we're at the home of the people that invented doggie bags.

    New York is amazing. It really is a concrete jungle and I can't wait to explore it.
    And it's so nice to be able to come back from town into Scarsdale where the trees are changing colour and there are squirrels running around. Best of both worlds really.

    The day was finished off with a sushi feast and champagne and cake once the house was quiet and asleep.

    Sunday's finals

    September 11, 2017 in the United States

    We headed early to the flushing meadows to watch the women's doubles final.

    (With a breakfast pit stop at 5 guys... damn those burgers man!!).

    For the first match of the day we could sit anywhere we wanted so we obviously squeezed ourselves into some fat courtside seats and well... the experience is different...
    Then for the plat de resistance we had Nadal facing Anderson. The spanish player dismissed his valiant opponent in straight sets to lift his 16th grand slam trophy! What a player!! Even from our promenade seats we could admire his mad skills.

    A bulgogi burger and some beers closed up our last full day in NYC.

    Shout out to the St. George Absinth, looked like perfume's bottle you would use at work ;).

    Day 18 - New York City Day 5

    June 2, 2017 in the United States

    Off we set to try and see the Cherry Blossoms at Riverside Park but unfortunately did not see any as they bloomed early this year and we missed them.

    Stephen and I continued on through the park and then through this beautiful suburb. It was a very pretty part of the city. We found hot dog croissants in a french bakery. We did not try these but I reckon you could only find them in NYC.

    We met Gail & Tony and Marie at the entrance to Central Park. Marie was a great tour guide and took as a bit around the park. First we went to the Merry-go-round and Gail and I had a ride. Then as we walked through the park saw lots of play areas filled with children who were on school holidays. We had lunch at a lovely cafe in the park and then continued on to see the John Lennon Memorial, the sidewalk outside the hotel he was shot and then on to the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. The park was amazing with lots of other features.

    Stephen and I found the Alice in Wonderland statue and garden it was fabulous.

    At dusk Stephen and I caught the subway and walked across the Brooklyn Bridge. It was dusk and the view of the City of Manhattan and Statue of Liberty could not be fully captured in a photo.

    Tony and Gail went to see Miss Saigon and to meet Marie for a drink after her performance in Phantom of the Opera.

    The end of another amazing day in this wonderful city.

    Erste Eindrücke

    July 16, 2013 in the United States

    Hello aus dem heißen New York :)

    Wir sind gut und sicher in unserem Hostel angekommen und haben schon einiges gesehen und erlebt. Das Hostel liegt nur fünf Minuten vom Empire State Building entfernt und auch zum Times Square haben wir es nicht weit. Wir waren heute im Macy's - größtes Kaufhaus der Welt!!! - und von dort aus sind wir einiges gelaufen... Wir waren erst am Times Square und sind den Broadway entlanggelaufen.. Haben uns dann aber ein Metroticket gekauft und sind damit bis runter zur Wallstreet gefahren.. Zu Fuß wären wir wahrscheinlich jetzt noch unterwegs! :D Manhattan ist einfach sooooo riesig... Dort haben wir auch das neue One World Trade Center gesehen und haben kurz am 9/11 Memorial gestanden.. Da waren so viele Arbeiter unterwegs, aber die Stimmung war trotzdem erdrückend.. Da es so heiß hier ist, haben wir uns gedacht, dass wir vielleicht am Wasser etwas Abkühlung bekommen aber Pustekuchen! Erst als wir ne Runde mit der Staten Island Ferry gefahren sind, kam eine kleine Brise auf - sehr zu unserer Freude.. ;) Haben ein paar Fotos von Manhattans Skyline gemacht und auch die Freiheitsstatue fotografiert...

    Morgen geht's weiter - hoch hinaus über die Dächer der Stadt.. ;)

    Hier sind ein paar Bilder vom heutigen Tag:

    Day 14 - New York City Day 1

    May 29, 2017 in the United States

    Today we went to the NYC Museum of Natural History.

    Dinosaurs all over the place an amazing museum.

    Sections included different cultures eg. African, Mayan, Aztec, even Australian Aboriginals.

    We spent over 3.5hrs at this museum it was fabulous.

    P.S. Kimberley was everywhere.

    We went to a play 'The Perfect Crime' the longest running play off Broadway (been running 30years) and we caught it on its last week.

    Strange play but lead to interesting discussions afterwards on how to commit the perfect murder.

    After this we went to the Rainbow Room on 65th level of Rockefella Centre.

    A drink and an amazing view of the Empire State and the whole of New York City.

    Day 15 - New York City Day 2

    May 30, 2017 in the United States

    This morning we walked the High Line over the city through the Meatpackers District and finished at Chelsea Markets. The High Line is an old abandon railway line which has been turned into a walkway and has beautiful gardens which are maintained by volunteers. It was very lovely to walk above the city and see it from a different perspective.

    Chelsea Markets was mainly a food market with lots of places to eat especially seafood.

    We ventured back to Times Square and then headed for home to get ready for the baseball.

    We went to see the Mets play Brewers, had hot dogs and Tony even tried deep fried dough with icing sugar (a heart attach on a plate).

    The Mets won 5-4 but we left after the 5th inning as it started to rain.

    Thanks to Stephen and Tony we arrived home safety from Queens where the game was.
