    Dag 6

    November 6, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 7 °C

    Voor vandaag een auto gehuurd. Een kleintje "economic" kunnen we om half negen ophalen. Eerst 2 haltes met de metro en dan nog een stukje lopen. De auto is er nog niet. Alvast de papieren ingevuld. De auto die we gereserveerd hebben is "not avalible" we krijgen een grotere mee voor dezelfde prijs. Of willen we de pick-up truck. Nee dank u. Het wordt een Nissan Altima een dikke middenklasser. 4 wiel aandrijving 2 liter turbo. Lekkere bak. Kennen we in Nederland dus niet.
    We zouden eerst naar Long Island rijden maar na een tip van een nicht van Anja is het het noorden van de staat New York en Connecticut geworden. Toch nog wat herfstkleuren mee gepakt. Geluncht in de Town of Yorktown en toen lekker binnendoor naar New Haven aan de kust.
    Lekker getourd, mooi weer, fijne auto. Was weer een heerlijke dag.

    Sleepy Hollow

    October 28, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Well it is Halloween after all!

    After our microwaved egg croissant and waffles courtesy of our hotel Will, Andy and myself went for a wander around Mahwah where we saw a lot more of the beautiful fall and also houses all dressed up ready for Halloween. Mark picked us up and before heading back to Manhattan we went to Sleepy Hollow.

    It was great fun, we had hot apple cider, walked around the sleepy hollow cemetery and town, ate dirty American pizza and then headed back into town by late afternoon.

    Exhausted, Will went for a lie down while I caught up with my blog, washing and finally packing ready for our flight tomorrow.

    In the evening we met up with the whole wedding crowd at Vspot for Latin American delights (apologies in advance for the swearing picture but this was later sent to Mark who went home to bed and didn't join us), Beetle Juice for ambience and then finally Barcade for drinks and retro arcading which was a great end to a fantastic time in NYC.

    Day 3 in NYC

    July 12, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Our day starts, as most others have on this trip, with the complementary breakfast. The one at this hotel is average. Nothing beats The Embassy in that regard! For reasons unknown, there is no shuttle today to get us to the train station. So, we drive instead. When we get there we discover that it is metered parking. At 25 cents per 1/4 hour we would need a lot of quarters for the day! Fortunately, there's an app for that. All I had to do was download it and enter our location number and we were good to go. Even has a feature built in to help you find your vehicle in case you forgot where you parked it!

    On arrival at Grand Central Station we find our way out of this massive building and start our day's walking tour. First stop, the MoMA. This world renowned Museum of Modern Art has a large collection of works by many great artists including Picasso, Matisse, Van Gogh, Monet and others. Too much to take it all in during a single visit so we choose a few of the many rooms and spend a couple of hours enjoying the art. A free app was available with an audio tour so that you could get insights into many of the more famous works.

    Next not the day's agenda was the Top of the Rock at the Rockefeller Center. Unfortunately, it was going to cost the family over $200 to take an elevator to the top. We decided that Laura and Emma would go up and I would walk to Macy's with the boys. We would meet up again later. Once together, we visited a few other stores nearby and had a lunch. From there we spent a bit more time walking about and enjoying the atmosphere before heading back to the train station by Metro.

    Sleepy Hollow e Madame Tussauds

    June 16, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Partenza da Grand Central Terminal col treno costeggiando l' Hudson per giungere a Sleepy Hollow alla ricerca del cavaliere senza testa.Visita al cimitero di Sleppy Hollow dove è sepolto lo scrittore Washington Irving. I suoi racconti fantastici più celebri sono sicuramente La leggenda della valle addormentata (The Legend of Sleepy Hollow), e Rip Van Winkle, ma scrisse anche numerosi lavori di carattere storico, benché romanzati, come quello su George Washington e sulla Spagna del XV secolo, come quelli su Cristoforo Colombo, i Mori di al-Andalus e l'Alhambra degli Ziridi e dei Nasridi: questi ultimi, forse frutto del suo soggiorno in Spagna nelle vesti di ambasciatore degli Stati Uniti dal 1842 al 1846.
    E vediamo pure la Philipsburg Maron: casa storica centro di commercio e agricoltura,nel 18 secolo era uno dei siti con il più grande numero di schiavi .Ora è diventato un museo.
    Rientriamo a Manhattan e la sera si va a vedere le cere di Madame Tussauds.
