New York, New York

A couple of weeks ago I was in New York for a few days. It was a bit of a spontaneous decision, as we had all our trips for this year planned to coordinate our time around our house renovation.

I was in New York in June 2007 for the first time and I haven’t been there since. When I say that I was there, I use “was there” loosely. I ended up in the city by accident in the middle of the night (4am) and stayed for 8 hours until my flight was confirmed for Europe again. I basically saw Times Square, Empire State and the Hudson.

One of the most important things on the list of things to explore was the Guggenheim, which I already blogged about here.

Day 1 was spent exploring the neighbourhood, crossing Brooklyn Bridge with gorgeous weather showing us the most stunning sunset.

The second evening we went to an immersive play called “Sleep no more“, which was absolutely brilliant and I would recommend anyone having a bit of time in New York to go there.

We explored Central Park and got that money shot.

I wanted to see the Crysler Building but could only go as far as the lobby.

The Rockefeller Center was obviously a must even though I immediately regretted it with the crowd going ballistic for the newly lit Christmas tree.

And to top it off, Grand Central Station.
