From Cayman Islands and Kent’s wedding we jumped on a plane via Miami to New York City for just over a week. We stayed in Queens and communted into NYC because of Halloween and the NYC marathon making it extremely expensive to stay in Manhattan. Our friend’s Heidi and Elliot from Perth who are living in Torronto came down for a few days with us in NYC. It was nice to hang out with some good friends, thanks for coming guys. We enjoyed a busy schedule squeezing in all Manhattan had to offer including, Times Square, Broadway, Food and Flea Markets, Brooklyn Bridge, 911 Memorial, Yankee Stadium, Central Park, 5th and Maddison Avenues, Statue of Liberty, Rockafella Centre, Grand Central Terminal, NYC Library, MOMA and Metro Museums, Staten Island Ferry, lots of shopping and eating delicious doughnuts, cupcakes and hot dogs, catching the subway and generally enjoying ourselves roaming around the massive city. It’s huge! We barely made it out of Manhattan contrary to what we had planned. Sharni was extra excited whenever she saw a NYPD officer or any landmark featured in the Law and Order: Special Victims Unit TV series.
This is an outbackjoe record for the quantity of photos for one post. Usually we would have split them up into more detailed posts but we are so behind with the blog we thought we’d just pump them out.
From the outback to the Big Apple .. that’s even more extreme than my “outback to the Big Mango (aka Bangkok) LOL”. You must have been very busy to squeeze all that into 1 week !
Hey Mike yeah we must have walked 1000kms, had sore feet from trekking back and forth across the city. It’s huge.
This is some years late, since I only just now happened across your blog, but wow you sure saw a lot of NYC in a short time! I lived in Connecticut, less than two hours from NYC by commuter train, for more than 25 years and never got around to seeing some of the places you mentioned having seen in just a week.
Might I suggest, if and when you visit the USA again, have a look at the Midwest: lots to see and do in what folks on the coasts call “flyover country.” I grew up in the Midwest and am happy to be back here after many years on the East Coast.
Hey Matthew yeah we were pretty busy in New York. Midwest ay. The thing about USA is its freakin huge and so much so see everywhere. We loved roadtripping through the western region. Would love to return, I’ll put Midwest on the list.
