New York

Day 1

sunny 17 °C

After a nice lie-in, we took the L Train to manhattan where we strolled up 6th Avenue to Central Park. We enjoyed a nice horse and carriage ride and then a wander through the south-side of the park. What a wonderful place to be on a sunday. Lots of New Yorkers enjoying their day off in the sun. Lots of frisbees and american footballs being thrown around! Also stumbled across the CPDSA, which stands for the Central Park Dance Skate Association!! The weekly roller disco was in full swing, and very, very funny to watch. All sorts of characters were to be seen, from 5 year olds to 70 year olds!


Next we got passes for a hop on-hop off bus tour, which we can use until Tuesday, so lots of touring about to be done til then! Today we took advantage of the Downtown route, so we saw all the famous buildings such as the Empire State, the Rockefeller, Ground Zero and Time Square.


After a short subway trip back Brooklyn way, we had tea in a cool wee bar on a street called Bedford Avenue. Definately a place where we'll do more exploring! Early night, so as to be ready to take our second bite out of the big apple tomorrow!!
