Visited NYC back in ’09, using the auto show as an excuse. Now I’m typically not one for cities, but spending 2 days in Manhattan certainly made a strong case for the Big Apple, if not for metropolitan living.
So many landmarks … Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Times Square, Metropolitan Museum … and yet it feels like we barely skimmed the surface. I guess I’ll have to go back. Eventually.
Times Square, of course. I hate acting and feeling like a tourist, but I’ll be damned if I hang out in Times Square and don’t take pictures like the other 2 million people there. Shiny and stuff.
The ubiquitous yellow cabs were running all over. Yes, we did take one these.Food stand! Yes, I shouted that and pointed like a 5 year old discovering ice cream stands for the first time. We don’t have them in Montreal. They’re genius. Mobile deliciousness.
We did see some cars, too. We came down for the auto show after all.
Before leaving, we had to hit the Met Museum, many laughs were had at modern art. Calling a dead shark or a pile of rope art doesn’t really strike me. No pics, too busy giggling wondering what would happen if I grabbed one end of said pile of rope and ran away with it.
I like old stuff better. With incredible detail.
Of course, I can’t post this and overlook these typical NYC oddities.
