    Midtown Manhattan

    May 17, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    Da unser Power-Visiting-Programm erst morgen richtig startet, haben wir den Nachmittag noch für einen Bummel durch die Upper Eastside genutzt. Die Grand Central Station, das Crysler Building, die Vereinten Nationen und die Roosevelt-Island-Tramway-Gondelbahn waren dann neben Roosevelt Island selbst Ziele unseres Nachmittags-Spaziergangs.Read more

    Grand Central

    October 6, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

    Der Bahnhof in Manhattan im Beaux Arts Stil - bekannt aus zahlreichen Filmen - durfte ebenfalls nicht ausgelassen werden!
    Wunderschön, 150 Jahre jung und zentral gelegen, war er der letzte Subway-Stop des heutigen Tages. Von dort ging es zu Fuß zum Times Square...Read more

    La gran terminal central

    June 18, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Grand Central Terminal es una colosal estación de transporte público que interconecta varias líneas de trenes y el metro de NY. El mármol en paredes y piso destaca siendo remodelada hace poco. Seguro se puede reconocer, ya que ha aparecido en alguna que otra película de Hollywood. El cielo raso es impresionante, imita una parte de la bóveda celeste.Read more

    Arriva Alex!

    September 20, 2019 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    Visita alla Morgan Library & Museum, nata come collezione privata del banchiere J.Morgan, oggi divenuta un museo che ospita un patrimonio di manoscritti rari, stampe, spartiti, appunti e libri tra i più preziosi del mondo, nella loro versione originale, spesso scritti a pugno dall’autore.
    La visita è piacevolmente accompagnata da un quartetto che dal vivo fa risuonare nella biblioteca note classiche.
    Terminata la breve visita anche questa sera decidiamo di cenare in centro, nei dintorni di Times Square... siamo al completo è arrivato Alex!
    Dopo la cena la stanchezza si fa sentire, anche oggi giornata intensa.. Franco e Floriana si ritirano in albergo in cerca di riposo, noi ragazzi ci concediamo invece una birra in uno dei rooftop bar più famosi di New York, il 230 Fifth!
    Dalla terrazza panoramica del bar si gode di una vista incredibile sull’Empire State Building e i grattacieli circostanti... non male per una birra, no!?

    Day 18 - New York City Day 5

    June 2, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    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.

    Day 14 - New York City Day 1

    May 29, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    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 ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    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.

    Statue of Liberty Day - hurray

    Wow it was fantastic. G&T went to the pedestal level but Stephen and I climbed to the crown (thanks Janice for telling us to buy our Crown tickets on line months ago as Crown tickets were sold out on the day).

    Never knew the Statue of Liberty was made out of copper and hollow inside. It is green because of the chemical reaction which happens when the air hits it. The Crown was a spiral staircase very narrow with 383 stairs (no lift). Well worth the climb.🤗

    Ellis Island was not very interesting for us but if your family immigrated to America you would be able to read and research lots of interesting facts.

    Next 9/11 memorial. Very busy around this area paid our respects. We chose not to go to the museum no sure I wanted to see what we all saw and heard on TV again.

    Wall Street next.

    On to Bloomingdales - very expensive and a look around Tiffanys. Unfortunately I didn't have enough money to even buy 1 earing in sterling silver let alone anything else.

    Chinese for dinner in those little boxes you see on TV.

    Tonight Stephen, Tony and I went on a long walk by the river. Gail was resting her poor feet.

    The walk was on the river and as we discovered later went almost the whole of Manhattan Island. Of course we did not walk the whole island only a short part.
