Long time no see 🙂
May 2o14 was a busy month for me. Shifting to another apartment, trip to New York etc.
My wife and I visited New York. We stayed in a hotel near by Times Square. Our room was in 24th floor and the view from the window was spectacular.
We reached hotel in the evening and decided to go to Empire State Building which is very close to the hotel. We went up to 86th and 102 floor to see the night view of the New York City. It was really fantastic.
I booked tickets online to Statue of Liberty, We didn’t get a clue on where to take the bus, so hopped in to a taxi and reached the place at 9 am.
The ferry took us to the statue of liberty, the experience was so good when I saw the statue on one side and skyline on the other side. It was mesmerizing to see the lady liberty standing tall and her arm reaching the clouds. The statue is an awesome outcome of Engineering and Art.
We had lunch and visited WTC memorial, roamed around taking pictures of the skyscrapers.
My wife and I reached hotel to took rest for a while. I appreciated myself for booking a hotel in the New York City though it is expensive than booking somewhere cheap and far.
After a short rest, my wife dressed pretty well and I got ready for Madame Tussauds.
Walked on the Brooklyn Bridge then took a subway to central park, but travelled towards the other side :). finally figured it out and took the right subway to central park.
late in the evening, we walked down the streets of New York City. I felt Times Square like T Nagar, Ranganathan street minus the tall buildings and digital billboards. 🙂
Next day, we took a train to New Jersey to catch the flight back to Cincinnati.
New York is a very happening city and we enjoyed it pretty well.
