    Ride through central park

    November 8, 2017 in the United States

    We went for a ride through central park but 3 soon became 2 when Rozzie's old sailing injuring flared up and ruled her out. Bek and I rode on and did the full loop around the park. It was overcast but still beautiful.

    Central Park

    October 21 in the United States

    Caught the subway over to Manhattan again, and spent a few hours in the morning wandering around Central Park. It's absolutely colossal, and it was nice to explore though the weather was absolutely freezing - about 8 degrees and windy. Hard to believe a week ago we were on the beach.

    By lunchtime we'd both had enough, so we grabbed a hot dog and separated for a bit. Shandos went to Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), while I took Schnitzel and just wandered the streets. I visited the Microsoft store, the Nintendo store, Rockefeller Plaza and a few other spots before heading back home to Brooklyn and a bit of downtime.Read more

    top of the rock

    November 7, 2016 in the United States

    8 Uhr los zur fifth avenue und dem rockefeller Center. Schnell gefrühstückt und dann vor dem großen Ansturm hoch auf den "top of the rock". Keine Schlange, günstiger als das Empire State Building und die gleiche geile Aussicht. Positiv ist natürlich, dass man auf den Bildern das Empire State Building drauf hat. Danach ging es in das Museum of Modern Art, in welches ich zum Glück mit meiner Jugendkarte vergünstigt rein kam. Außerdem: New York schläft nie, um 10uhr abends shoppen und das auch am Sonntag und die Museen haben die ganze Woche auf. Kein "am Montag geschlossen", ich glaube soetwas gibt es hier gar nicht. Die Ausstellungen waren wirklich gut. Dann habe ich wie schon zuvor auf dem foodmarket im Bryant Park zu Mittag gegessen. Von dort mit der Subway zur 72 st/Central Park und habe dann dort den Nachmittag verbracht, bin spazieren gegangen, habe gelesen und mich gesonnt(ich bin sogar etwas braun geworden, also für meine verhältnisse). Ich muss schon sagen, dass der Central Park wirklich sehr schön ist, die perfekte Mischung aus Parkanlage und wildem Wald.
    Definitiv ein gelungener Tag.

    Midtown and Central Park New York

    May 7, 2015 in the United States

    An orchestra of sirens, horns and bouncing chassis rang through the night of the city 'that never sleeps'. But it was the sound of Michael Jackson's 'Beat It' from a truck radio that stirred Alex from a fitful sleep that we fell into after arriving late the night before.

    Our room is well equipped for its small size with our window doubling as our fire exit for our convenience. We made use of the free coffee and Dunkin' Doughnuts provided by the hostel before heading out into sunshine and a city that was then truely awake.

    Crossing up onto 7th Avenue we were greeted by the flash and buzz of Times Square, where amongst the throng of tourists entertainers dressed as cartoon characters posed for for photographs and tips. I caught Olaf, Elmo and the Cookie Monster counting dollar bills in a huddle under an array of digital billboards inviting you to not look where you are going. Yellow taxi cabs jostled with delivery vans and black sedans as human and vehicle traffic snaked through the streets converging on the square.

    Leaving the bustle behind, we strolled into the green oasis of Central Park and lay down in the carpet grass of Sheep Meadow as aeroplanes cut across the blue vault above. Every generation was out playing and sunbathing whilst buildings bordering the park stand watch over us. The Sheep's Meadow is one of the many landscaped areas of the park that include; Strawberry Fields (dedicated to John Lennon who was shot in the archway of The Dakota hotel that borders the park in 1980); The Great Lawn with its six baseball pitches (the line 'the cross is in the ball park' from Paul Simon's 'The Obvious Child' played in my head) and the great body of water, The Jackie Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, around the mile and a half border of which, Alberto Arroyo pioneered jogging. After jogging for over 50 years, Alberto died in 2010 at the age of 94. A small sign of sun bleached news cuttings commemorates his achievement of jogging for over 50 years and inspiring thousands of New York residents to do the same. He was honoured by the State Senate in 1985 and became known as 'The Mayor of Central Park'.

    With the park to our backs we headed down 5th Avenue to take in views from 'The Top of the Rock' at the Rockefeller Centre. Through polished corridors of Art Deco design, we took a lift, the ceiling of which is transparent, allowing you to watch the speed and distance of your ascent to the 67th floor as your ears pop to the quick change in altitude. The views are brilliant and we're not sure the photos even do it justice.

    An orange dusk coated the brickwork as we arrived back at our hostel, jet lagged but sun kissed from a great first day in New York City.
