Travel : New York City

Hi guys ,
 
Can`t believe that I`ve been back for nearly three weeks , but my NYC post is finally finished .
 
First, lets talk about our Hotel. We stayed at the Cassa Hotel near Times Square and the Location is perfect for exploring all the touristic places, you can go wherever you would like to and often even by foot. The rooms are really pretty, the only Thing that could have been better was the small bed.
 
 



 
First day we went to Times Square and visited all the Shops like M&Ms, Hersheys and Toys R us. A real life barbie house! We went there more than once because our Hotel was just around the Corner, once we at breakfast at the Hardrock Cafe ( no recommandation, nothing Special ) or dinner at TGIF and Planet Hollywood.
 



Day two, we walked to Central Park and ate breakfast on our way, there is a nice Little cafe on the end of 6th Ave. We took the subway to the National Natural History Museum and it was one of my Highlights, haven`t seen such a beautiful museum before! You definately have to go there, its so worth it!

After that we went to Central Park and just walked around. This squirrels are adorable, so fascinating to see this enormous green in the middle of such a mega City.








 
 
Then we took the subway to the meatpacking district, grabbed some Food in a Supermarket ( why aren`t there more supermarkets in NYC? I really had trouble to find one ) and spent some time at the High Line Park. One of my personal favorites, I would have loved to stay there forever. So inspiring and beautiful, oh the view!
 
Chelsea Market reminded me of Camden. This cute little stores with tasty food and Special Souvenirs, the taste of fresh cupcakes and a grilled cheese Sandwich, what else could I dream of. I think photos say more than words .
 
 

 

 







On Friday, we went to the WTC Memorial. I don`t have to talk about this, we all know what happened. The Museum is nicely done, really respective but informative. Personally, I never thought that it would be that interesting and silent, everyone was quite while we were in there.
 
We took a walk to Little Italy and Soho later that day, look at this art, so beautiful!
 





 
 
On saturday we booked the boat tour to the statue of liberty and Ellis Island. Sadly this is incredibly touristic, my highlight was Ellis Island. If you want to make this tour, you could also just stay on the boat and don`t go on land by the statue, the next stop is far more interesting. But the area where the ship depature is located is really nice.
 



 
 On our last day we wanted to go to Williamsburg but sadly the subway line was closed that day. So we just took another one and stranded in Brooklyn, found the Brooklyn Bridge by accident and walked through the park. We took the Ferry up to 34rd street and walked all the way to our Hotel up on the 5th Ave.


 New York is such an inspiring and impressive City, for me five days weren`t enough. I think I would have to stay longer if I would like to expore the feeling this place gives you, but it also was nice to see that its still "just" a City where People live and work, and not unreal at all like its showed in the movies.
 
Hope to see you again , NYC!
 
Love,
 
Faye
